According to Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Kathleen Al Papara, as we age our eyelash follicles (the openings in the skin through which the lash grows) can slow or stop producing new lashes altogether. There is a reduction in length, thickness and even pigmentation.
A lash serum can help penetrate the the skin and enhance the health of the eyelashes during the growth and after growth phases.
Mascara works by making the eyelashes stiff. Unfortunately this also makes them more likely to break or be damaged. This can happen when sleeping as you stiff lashes push up against your pillow. Or when curling your lashes after applying mascara. Lash serums help build stronger and fuller eyelashes to help protect them from damage and breakage due to dryness.
3. Lash Extensions Support
Over time removing synthetic lashes can cause your natural lashes to fall off as well. A lash serum will help the hairs to stay in the follicles longer, resulting in stronger support for your extensions.
4. Better for the Environment
Most synthetic lash extensions are made from polybutylene terephtalate (PBT) - a type of plastic that is not biodegradable. This means eventually every lash will end up in nature or in the ocean. On the other end, natural lashes made from mink or sable fur may be biodegradable but are made from animals who are killed for their fur. Lash serums are a great eco-friendly option.
Lash extensions can potentially cost anywhere from $80 to $300 per application. This can run to thousands of dollars per annum. A lash serum like lashfridays costs only $20 per month.
1. We use peptides not hormones
The main active ingredient in lashfridays is peptides. These are suitable for sensitive skin and have none of the risks that hormone based lash serums have such as pigmentation changes to the eyes and fat loss in the eye lid.
2. We use extra ingredients to nourish your lashes
Collagen enhances the appearance and feel of lashes by increasing lash body, suppleness and sheen. The oil from pumpkin seeds helps increase hair growth. Biotin adds body and shine to lash hair. Keratin is a type of protein that works by smoothing down the cells that overlap to form your lash hairs. This can make the lashes smoother and silkier.

Our lash serums are never tested on animals and all our ingredients including our collagen are vegan.
