Final Thoughts: Ardell Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator Treatment Gel! + Photos!

This past Monday marked my fourth week of using the Ardell Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator Treatment Gel. Each week, I've posted photos of my progress and wrote about the changes I've noticed in my lashes.

I was pretty consistent throughout the weeks of applying the treatment generously to my lashes before bed. It never seemed to irritate my eyes until I reached my final week. By that time, the product had turned gray from any mascara residue that may of been on my lashes and there was barely any left in the tube. My eyes started to water as soon as I applied the product and as soon as I would wash my eyes in the morning. This didn't happen till the final week, therefore in my final week I wasn't consistent with applying it. I applied it maybe 3-4 days out of the week. The previous weeks I was applying it 5-7 days, sometimes twice a day. Possibly because I wasn't as consistent, I saw little changes. But, I'm still very happy with the product overall.

Week 1 Photos: 

Let me briefly go over the changes I've noticed week to week.
Week 1: At the end of week one, I noticed a definite change in the length of my lashes. It wasn't anything dramatic, but I could tell when I applied my mascara that my lashes looked longer. 
Week 2: At the end of week two, I am noticing more and more that my lashes did indeed grow in length. I couldn't tell if they were any longer than they were at the end of week 1, but I could tell they were indeed longer than when I started using the treatment. I also am noticing that I have a lot of new growth - and areas where I had lashes missing, are filling in nicely.
Week 3: At the end of week three, I didn't notice any further lengthening than the previous weeks. I do notice that both my top and bottom lashes are thicker from the new growth. I also noticed that my bottom lashes are more sparse.
Week 4: At the end of week 4, I didn't notice any further lengthening than the previous weeks. I can't tell if I have any new growth of lashes, but I think there are little changes since week three. Any new growth has grown out now, and I'm very happy!

Overall, using the Ardell Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator Treatment Gel helped bring my lashes to the condition they are supposed to be in. They have a little "give" now when I touch them with my finger tips, so I'm convinced it helped strengthen my lashes. I was hoping my lashes would be a bit stronger, but perhaps they will with continued use. I would be able to push another week or two out of the tube, but like I mentioned, because it was near the end, it started irritating my eyes. My lashes are slightly longer and I have many more lashes than I had prior to using this product. I do believe this product is a great lash conditioner to keep your lashes in good shape. I would recommend this product if you use harsh makeup removers on your eyes, if you use waterproof mascara, if you wear lash extensions or wear false lashes often - anything that can damage or cause your lashes to fall out, and you need a product that will help grow your lashes back & keep them conditioned. This product isn't anything like Latisse, as my lashes haven't grown much in length, but my results with mascara are SO much better than they were before. I literally use to apply my mascara for 5 minutes to build my lashes to the desired length/volume. Now, I can apply my mascara in about a minute, with better results. This is a fantastic product for the low price!

Now that I'm finished with this product, I'm going to try something new. I'm thinking of picking up the L'Oreal Lash Boosting Serum. Thoughts??

  1. I see the difference. Deff want to try this out! I have been wanting to wear fake lashes, but I pretty suck at put them on, I get glue every where around my eyes, no fun at all, & I get mad, so I don't even end up with the fake lashes on me. The wrost part, I am like pulling of my real lashes off, which is making be beyond pissed off.

  3. I'm currently using the L'oreal serum in conjunction with Latisse. I don't find that the serum does much other than perhaps condition my lashes. I'm not too bothered by its lack of function considering it was only $10, but I don't feel the need to repurchase this.
    I definitely see the difference in your lashes. That's amazing for 4 weeks. I'm really pleased with the results I'm getting from Latisse. I definitely recommend it! :)

  4. I used both Ardell and L'oreal. Ardell def helped my lashes whereas after using L'oreal, the next morning I woke up with fallen lashes!! I got scared but wanted to give it another try, same thing happened again...I went back to Ardell.

  6. Loreal Lash boosting serum did absolutely NOTHING for me. I've tried numerous lash growth product and loreal was just a waste of money. Rapidlash is very good though! I have a post about Rapidlash on my blog

  12. Love this review, I've been using this product for about a week now and am anxious to see if my results are as good as yours were! I too wear falsies and put my lashes through a lot of "pain" so anything to help them would be great.
    I'm dying to try Latisse but this is a first step!
    Great review, so thorough as always!!!!
