We got to admit some Asians don’t grow enough hair. Please, I definitely do not intend to discriminate but speaking the truth. One of them is me, I have fine hairs on my scalp, face and body which I’m actually thankful for because I save a lot on waxing. My problem would be, I don’t grow enough hair on my brows and lashes. Therefore, Ardell Lash & Brow Growth Accelerator is something to look upon.
I remembered when I first spotted this growth accelerator is when I was in Melbourne (precisely in Priceline), more than 5 years ago. I thought it was affordable, only AUD7.90 then and no harm on giving it a try. Upon using this, I do realize that my lashes became stronger, longer and more brow hairs were growing. Before returning to Malaysia, I have had stocked up half a dozen just to ensure that I won’t be missing it. One tube could last for a couple of months. When I ran out of stock, I didn’t purchase any and it is not available in Malaysia.
Luckily, they can be found now at Supermodels Secret and this would be an ease for me than searching high and low. I’m on the parole to get my brow hair and lashes all growing again. They usually come in blister package. The tube looks like your typical mascara and the gel can be seen right from it’s outside. I would say the packaging is just as handy to travel around.
On the back of the blister package, it describes how this growth accelerator works. Basically, it helps to strengthen and stimulates hair growth for brow hair and lashes. It is advice to use it daily, only at night which I did and will share with you how well this work for me.
Bonus points is that it doesn’t contain alcohol or paraben in this serum. As much as I read about castor oil, they are said to be very good for hair growth and this is included in the gel. The brand Ardell is from US and they also have a wide variety of false lashes sitting in our Sephora stores.
The brush wand looks just like your ordinary mascara and I do find that it’s a little stiff. It felt a little harsh when I applied over my brows. The gel doesn’t have any scent to it but it does turn bad after a month and a half or more from the numerous pumping and mixture of our skin care product that the brush picked up. I didn’t mind the ‘bad’ scent because it was meant to be applied at night before bed and it doesn’t stay long. Although the scent has gone bad, it is still working it’s charm.
I have started using this gel again a month ago and this gel never disappoint me. With the arrows pointing, those are the spots where I could tell there’s difference. I do have very sparse brows, notice that some part of it is now filled with hair? I do have medium length lashes that was grown from the previous usage but I have not use the gel for more than a year. I do notice some lashes starts to growth, became thicker and longer.
When people ask me how did I get such lashes, I always recommend this gel to them. I used to have really short and stubby lashes and they were never flattering. I never thought of reviewing this gel previously especially it isn’t available in Malaysia and it will be difficult for those who is interested. With only a month use, I could get results but it all depends on individual, some could be faster or slower.
There is one effectiveness of this gel that I have yet to tell you on the earlier years of usage. You know how sometimes such products could get into our eyes? Yup, it did happen to me, no tingles, no irritation and little did I know, there’s fine hair growing on the lacrimal caruncle (the tiny nodule flesh at the inner corner of the eye). I thought my eyes were messing up with my vision and attempted to carefully tweeze it. No accident happened (thank God!) and I managed to tweeze those fine hairs (there was two). They were really tiny and it happened a couple of times before, therefore I didn’t tweeze only once. Apparently, I’m getting used to it.
If you are a first time user, you need to be dedicated to use this gel religiously to achieve results and this has to be use on long term. You can’t be expecting va-va-voom lashes within a month. It takes time to nurture your brows and lashes. Good news for Malaysians that you can find this at Supermodels Secret now! They ship internationally too.
