Best Eyelash Growth Serum: Revitalash vs. Rapidlash vs. Hairgenics vs. Rodan and Fields Lash boost
All women want to look pretty, looking pretty makes us feel happy. The look of our lashes are as important as what we wear, how our hair looks, because our eyelashes are the first thing we notice when we make eye contact with someone else. Thicker and curlier eyelashes are considered to be the most appealing, but what if your eyelashes are weak or thin? There could be a couple of reasons behind this issue, you can read my post to find out why eyelashes fall out. If you have thin lashes and want to regain their natural thickness back, you might consider getting an eyelash growth serum. Eyelash growth serums help your eyelashes to grow back thicker and curlier, and are not harmful to your lashes.
Eyelash serums are completely safe to use as long as you buy one of the brands that are dermatologically tested, I am going to compare the most popular eyelash growth serums below;
Revitalash Reviews: Revitalash Advanced
Revitalash cosmetics company specialize in creating eyelash growth serums and their products have been popular not only in United States of America, but also in Europe and Asia. You can safely use this product along with eyelash extensions and the product does not contain BHT, Phthalates and Parabens.
It is important to mention that if you buy a Revitalash product, you help in Revitalash Cosmetics effort to eradicate women’s cancer. Revitalash is also animal cruelty free and vegan friendly, which means none of their products are tested on animals, and no animals are harmed during the production.
The application is quite straight-forward, I usually apply it every morning before wearing make-up, since you need to clean your make-up first for the best result. After applying Revitalash Advanced to the top sides of your lashes, allow a few minutes for them to dry before moving on with your daily makeup routine.
There is a small minority with sensitive eyes reporting they have had irritation, burning and dry eyes, but I did a quick math out of the total. Amazon reviews those who report those side effects are only 4%.
As I already mentioned, Revitalash is cruelty-free and vegan friendly, the full ingredient list is as below;
Aqua, Glycerin, Biotin, Cellulose Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Disodium Phospahte, Phosphoric Acid, Dechloro Dihydroxy Difluoro Ethylcloprostenolamide, Butylene Glycol, Calendula Officinalis Extract, Panax Ginseng Extract, Serenoa Serrulata Extract, Camellia Sinensis Extract, Swertia Japonica Extract, Triticum Vulgare Germ Protein, Pentylene Glycol, Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1, Octapeptide-2.
Revitalash During Pregnancy
The old version of the Revitalash eyelash growth serum contained “prostaglandins” which made it not safe to use while breast-feeding, however they re-formulated the product in 2015. However, I would still bring the ingredient list to the doctor to make sure if it’s safe to use, since there is not much information about this matter on their website.
Revitalash Before and After
I compiled a list of real user submitted images on amazon.com for you to compare the results for before and after using Revitalash Advanced;
Hairgenic Lavish Lash Reviews
Hairgenic Lavish Lash is one of the best selling eyelash growth serums on the amazon website, the price factor plays an important role here, being less than half the price of eyelash growth serums like Revitalash, Babelash and Latisse. It is difficult to find much information about the company but I can say it is produced in Las Vegas by FDA approved labs.
There are almost no side-effects reported by the user reviews, which is impressive. The company claims they are animal cruelty-free just like the Revitalash.
Hairgenic Lavish Lash Ingredients
Looking at the ingredients I believe they are also vegan friendly;
Purified Water Sodium Chloride Benzalkonium Chloride Citric Acid Disodium Phosphate Cellulose Gum Panax Ginseng Extract Swertia Japonica Extract Biotin
It is advised to apply Hairgenic Lavish Lash every night after you cleanse your make-up. Although I have never used this product personally, I thought it is worth to say a few words about this product reading so many positive reviews on the internet. However I couldn’t find any information regarding if the product is safe to use while pregnant or breast-feeding so please consult your doctor with the ingredient list if you are unsure.

Rodan and Fields Lash Boost Reviews
Rodan and Fields Lash Boost is one of the most expensive lash growth serum on the market, but is it really worth it? Firstly, Rodan and Fields Lash Boost is not tested on animals just like the other lash growth serums I have reviewed, which is a plus for me. However if you are looking for a vegan friendly product, this may not be it.
Rodan and Fields Lash Boost Side Effects
Looking at the ingredients and user comments I can see a high number of people are complaining about side effects such as itchy skin, burning eyes, irritation and so on, this makes me think this product is not as good as it is advertised. However there are also people who claim that only Rodan and Field Lash boost is working for them, so the effects of each product can be different for everyone.
Rodan and Fields Lash Boost Ingredients
Rodan and Fields Last Boost has a big list of ingredients, which can cause you irritation and allergic reactions if you have sensitive eyes;
Water/Aqua/Eau, Butylene Glycol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Keratin, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Biotin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Isopropyl Cloprostenate, Octapeptide-2, Allantoin, Panthenol, Copper Tripeptide-1, Pantethine, Polypeptide-23, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Extract, Glycerin, Sea Water, Malus Domestica Fruit Cell Culture Extract, Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Fruit Extract, Backhousia Citriodora Leaf Oil, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Rhizobian Gum, Styrene/Acrylates/Ammonium Methacrylate Copolymer, Xanthan Gum, PVP, Lecithin, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Alcohol Denat., Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid, Sodium Hydroxide.
The most noticeable and dangerous ingredient in the list is; Isopropyl Cloprostenate which can even change your eye color if contacted with your eye. I would highly avoid using this product before giving others a try.
Rodan and Fields Lash Boost before and after
I compiled a list of real user submitted images on amazon.com for you to compare the results for before and after using Rodan and Fields Lash Boost;
Latisse can be only bought by getting a prescription from your doctor, therefore it is harder to get than any of its competitors in the market. The effect of Latisse is scientifically proven so there is no doubt it is going to work for you, but it is important to know why you can’t get it without a prescription first. It is worth to mention that Latisse is the only FDA approved eyelash serum.
For this one, I am going to look at the ingredients first, because the ingredients are more important.
Latisse has an active ingredient called Bimatoprost, it can help your eyelashes grow big time but can cause serious allergic reactions such as difficulty in breathing and swelling.
Active ingredient: bimatoprost
Inactive ingredients: benzalkonium chloride; sodium chloride; sodium phosphate, dibasic; citric acid; and purified water. Sodium hydroxide and/or hydrochloric acid may be added to adjust pH. The pH during its shelf life ranges from 6.8 – 7.8.
Latisse Side Effects
Because of the active ingredient(Bimatoprost) mentioned above which, you might develop some allergic reactions such as; difficulty in breathing, swelling, hives, burning eyes, vision problems, increased sensitivity of light.
Latisse Before and After
As latisse is not sold without a prescription, I couldn’t compile real user submitted images on amazon.com but I am sure the result would be as good as its competitors at least.
Which eyelash serum is the best for you?
It is kind of hard to choose between Hairgenic Lavish Lash and Revitalash Advanced. Revitalash Advanced is what I use personally just because they are established since 2006 and have proven products selling in over 50 countries. Both are animal cruelty free and vegan friendly. If you prefer a cheaper solution then go for Hairgenic Lavish Lash, otherwise Revitalash Advanced is my pick. Rodan and Fields on the other hand is not recommended for the reasons above, I will be updating this post with other brands soon.
