We know you can totally appreciate a gorgeous eyeshadow palette or lash extension when you get one done or watch one of your girls rock one gracefully.
There’s just something about full, fluttery lashes that instantly awakens the face. Big, beautiful lashes acts like a mini eye-lift that draws attention to the eyes in a way that makes the lids look less heavy and more awake.
But If you’re more of a skincare person than a makeup person or when you wear makeup, you tend to put on more natural looks unless there is a need to step things up a bit.
Then this article might interest you.
What if we told you that naturally growing your lashes to be fuller, thicker and longer was possible and all you had to do was brush a serum on your lashes every night before bed, would you believe us?
With hundreds of thousands of products in the beauty industry that might seem too good to be true, An Eyelash Serum that actually works and deliver real-time results is both Good and True.
So, how exactly do they work – and could lash growth serums really lead you to ditch your mascara?
Come closer, let’s find out:
What Are Lash Serums?
Simply put, Lash serums are growth-enhancing formulas that help grow new lashes, add thickness, length and density. When applied regularly, the lash serum extends the telogen phase of growth, lengthening the lash growth cycle to keep lashes thicker and stronger.
Best For: Anyone looking to stimulate the growth of their eyelashes & Brows
Uses: Lengthening and thickening eyelashes and Brows
How Do EyeLash Serums Work?
Eyelash serums work by supporting the hairs in their growth phase, encouraging them to grow longer, and with darker pigment. They mostly achieve this lash enhancement with a star skincare ingredient known as peptides (short chains of amino acids) which are the building blocks of protein. Considering your lashes are comprised of around 80 per cent keratin protein, it makes sense how a topical top-up of peptide rich Lash serum can support fuller growth.
Many of the best lash serums also contain a supporting cast of nutrients and vitamins to condition and nourish the lashes like Biotin, Collagen, panthenol, Niacinamide, Arginine etc
But To get a much deeper understanding on how lash serums work, we need to talk about Eyelash Growth cycles.
The 3 Stages of Eyelash Growth
There are three stages of the eyelash growth cycle. Anagen (the growth phase), Catagen (the transition phase) and Telogen (the resting phase).
1) Anagen (Active Growth) Phase
The Anagen phase is also known as the growth phase. This is where the magic starts to happen, In this phase, the hair is attached to the blood supply which ‘feeds’ the lash and helps it grow.
This is the most important phase when it comes to using Neutriherbs Pro Eyelash Serum. It’s during this phase that lashes grow to their full length and usually lasts from 4-8 weeks where lashes will grow at a rate of 0.12 to 0.14 mm per day.
But you should know that not all of your eyelashes will be in the growth phase at the same time. Only roughly 40% of your upper lashes (and 15% of lower lashes) will be in anagen phase at one time so when you start a lash serum, you’ll likely see increased length/new lashes on a portion of your lashes, while the other 60% cycle through the other phases to ensure you don’t lose all your lashes at once when the falling-off phase starts.
The Neutriherbs Pro Eyelash serum supports the duration of this particular lash phase, allowing lashes to appear denser and fuller with the help of Myristoyl Pentapeptide-4 - An Active Ingredient that Signals the cells; significantly stimulates keratin genes; nourishes, stimulates, hydrates and protects the follicle.
The serum is also formulated with Biotinoyl Tripeptide, the ingredient responsible for strengthening eyelash fibres and follicles, which penetrates the lash follicle, promoting the formation of Keratin and encouraging individual lashes to grow back stronger and thicker.
2) Catagen (Transition) Phase
The second phase in the lash cycle is the Catagen phase sometimes called the transition phase. In this phase, the eyelash has reached it’s natural length and stopped growing, but it's not yet ready to fall off and start the lash cycle anew.
This phase lasts 2-3 weeks. Lashes maintain length gained from the Anagen phase while waiting for the next phase. Should a lash fall out during catagen, it won’t begin growing back until this phase has run its course.
During this phase, Pro Eyelash Serum ensures that the lashes are not just longer but fuller and voluminous. It also keeps the lashes strong and healthy by creating supple, non-brittle, nourished lashes that won’t easily break or fall out thereby causing gaping holes in the lash line. This means you have more lashes in place at any one time, creating a fuller lash line.
Ingredients like peptide, Panax Ginseng (Asian Ginseng) Root Extract, Malus Domestica (Apple) Fruit Cell Culture Extract work to keep lashes conditioned, nourished and strengthened. The results - a fuller and voluminous-looking lash.
3) Telogen (Resting) Phase
This is the last stage in the life of the eyelash also known as the shedding/resting phase.
In this phase, lashes sit dormant and rest while a new baby hair begins to grow inside the follicle and the old lash sheds naturally to give room for new ones. This stage lasts for 3 to 4 months before the eyelash falls out and re-enters the active growth phase. Approximately 50% of eyelashes will be in this phase at one time.
Once the eyelash naturally falls out during the telogen phase, it can take between one and two months before the next anagen phase kicks in and a brand-new delicate little eyelash starts to grow in taking its place in the follicle.
To help keep lashes in tip-top shape, we recommend following these practices:
- Remove makeup thoroughly each day
- Avoid waterproof makeup
- Incorporate a lash serum into your daily routine
- Avoid tugging, pulling, or rubbing lashes
Our lash serum aims to support the natural progression of the Telogen phase, which may facilitate a quicker return of lashes to their subsequent phase.

Are Lash Serums Safe?
If used correctly, lash serums are safe. You should follow the specific instructions of the lash serum you are using, but typically they should be applied two to three times a day on clean lashes. Do not apply lash serum while wearing contacts.
Yes, this serum can be a safe alternative to extensions, which are time-consuming and potentially harmful to the follicle as they can often cause natural lashes to fall out more quickly than normal.
if you experience any negative side effects, like itchy, red eyes, unwanted hair growth in areas the product repeatedly touches, darkening of the eyelids, reduced eye pressure, or permanently increased iris pigmentation, discontinue use immediately and see a doctor.
How to Apply a Lash Serum
The serum comes in a tube that has a very thin application brush which allows you to really get close to the lash line which is where you need to apply it. Apply the lash serum as your last step in your morning and night routine.
Before applying the lash serum, make sure your eyelashes are clean and dry. Then, remove the applicator and gently wipe the brush on the rim of the bottle to reduce any excess product.
Additionally, apply a thin stroke of the lash serum on the top lash line, just as you would if you were to apply eyeliner. A tip to know is to never double dip.
Finally, apply the serum daily for three months as the first step to your skincare routine. You may see results in as little as three weeks, with the maximum results achieved in eight to ten weeks with consistent use.

The Value: Is It Worth it?
Looking at the price of this serum and how long it lasts (About 90 days) the value of what you’re getting is almost too good to be true when you look at the results.

On a Final Note:
Lash serum is a more permanent way to make your eyelashes fuller and longer without having to rely on mascara.
Eyelash extensions, false and magnetic eyelashes, makeup removers, and even some mascaras can all weaken lashes over time. Thankfully, because we live in the 21st century, the Goddess of beauty have blessed us with a kind of technology only money can buy: eyelash serums.
If you want your lashes to grow long naturally (be prepared—they will be longer than you expect) thick, and full, then Neutriherbs Eyelash Growth Enhancing Serum is an absolute must-have to incorporate into your daily skincare routine.
