There is a lot of hype around eyelash growth serums. Some people swear by them, while others think they are a waste of money.
So, what’s the verdict? Are eyelash serums worth it?
As a lash artist myself, I have tried many different serums on my own lashes. I also collected a lot of feedback from my clients who have been using them.
In this article, I will share my top 9 reasons why I think using a lash growth serum is worth the money.
Did you know: According to Growth Market Reports, in 2020, the global Eyelash Serum market was valued at USD 746.7 million and is projected to reach USD 1,228 by 2028. This represents an annual growth rate of 6.6%
That’s a lot of people using a growth serum.
Let’s get started!

#1 Achieve Longer, Denser, and Fuller Lashes
This one goes without saying. You purchase the product for this very reason.
Lash serums are formulated with active ingredients that help to lengthen, thicken, and stimulate lash growth. Some popular ingredients you can find on labels are amino acids, biotin, and peptides.
So how long does it take to see any result?
Most manufacturers say the product has to be used consistently for 3 to 4 months before making an assessment.
But in my experience, you can see the difference as early as after one month of use. This is based on feedback from my clients as well.
Some people have even reported seeing a difference in as little as two weeks!
Of course, the results will vary from person to person based on genetics, age, and other factors. But with regular use, you will notice a significant difference in the appearance of your lashes.
#2 Repair and Strengthen Your Natural Lashes
If your natural lashes are weak and brittle, a lash growth serum can help to repair and strengthen them.
Several factors can lead to sparse or weak eyelashes such as over-plucking, malnutrition, medical conditions, and certain medications.
I’ve also seen women abuse false lashes with a disastrous application. The lash glue was all over the lash line and prevented the growth of natural lashes. Moreover, the lash strip was way too heavy for the natural lashes, causing them to break.
As a lash artist, my number 1 priority has always been to preserve the health of the natural lashes.
Seeing a disaster like this simply gives me nightmares.
But I digress…
A good eyelash enhancing serum will have ingredients that help to nourish and revitalize your lashes or your brows so they can grow back stronger and healthier
#3 Save Time
Do you spend at least 15 minutes every morning applying false lashes or mascara?
You are not alone.
If you are using a good lash serum, you can say goodbye to the daily hassle and time-consuming process of applying false lashes or layering on coats of mascara.
With longer and fuller lashes, you can simply curl them and be on your way.
This represents a huge time-saving for busy ladies who want to look good with minimal effort.
Not to mention, it also saves you money in the long run because you won’t have to keep buying false lashes or mascara.
#4 No Artificial Enhancements
There are different ways to achieve fuller and longer lashes. One of the most popular strategies is to use eyelash extensions.
First, let me just say that I love lash extensions. There is nothing like waking up with perfect lashes every day. In the hands of an experienced stylist, you can achieve any look you want, from natural and flirty to bold and dramatic.
But some people don’t like having synthetic fibers attached to their natural lashes. They would prefer to have something completely natural.
Also, if not done correctly, lash extensions can cause damage. That’s why it’s important to go to a reputable stylist who uses high-quality products.
#5 Low Maintenance
Nothing beats the convenience of a low-maintenance beauty routine.
Let’s be honest, as beautiful as some other lash enhancement treatments are, they do require maintenance.
For example, lash extensions need to be refilled every two to three weeks. Lash lifts need to be done every 6 to 8 weeks.
Once you achieve the desired look with a lash enhancing serum, all you need is a quick application daily to maintain it.
Now that’s what I call low-maintenance!
#6 Quick Application at Home
You can achieve the same result as you would at a salon but in the comfort of your own home and without having to spend a fortune.
The best part is, it only takes a minute or two to apply the serum before going to bed or early in the morning.
It’s so easy that you can even do it while you are watching TV or working on the computer.
Some eyelash growth serums come with a mascara wand applicator while others have a liquid eyeliner applicator. In both cases, the application is quick and easy.
Simply apply some products to the root of your lashes and you are done!
#7 Huge Confidence Boost
This one is a no-brainer. When you look good, you feel good.
A full lash line with beautiful lashes can really make your eyes pop and help you feel more confident.
Whether you are going on a first date, giving a presentation at work, or attending a wedding, looking your best will give you the extra boost of confidence you need to make a great impression.
#8 Relatively Inexpensive
You might think spending $60 to $100 on a small bottle of eyelash enhancing serum is pricey. But when you compare it to other lash enhancement treatments, it’s actually quite reasonable.
For example, a single session of lash extensions can cost anywhere from $80 to $375 for a classic full set depending on where you live and the salon you go to. And don’t forget the monthly refills!
Lash lifts are also quite pricey, with a single session costing $75 to $150.
So what about lash serums?
That little bottle will last you several months. If you make a quick comparison, it is actually a very affordable option.
#9 Compatible With Other Lash Enhancement Services
This is one reason I often get asked.
In some cases, they are even recommended!
For example, when I a client walks into my salon asking for a lash lift or extensions, but the natural lashes are so tiny or damaged, it’s really not worth it.
In such cases, I recommend using a lash growth serum for at least a month or two to help improve the condition of the lashes before getting any other treatment done.
This will help for eyelash extensions since I’ll have a stronger base to work with. It will also make a big difference for a lash lift since the treatment will have a more noticeable impact.
Lash serums are growth-enhancing products that can give you longer, thicker, and healthier lashes.
Although the price ranges from $60 to $100 for a quality eyelash serum, they are worth it when you compare it to the cost of other lash treatments such as lash extensions and lifts.
What’s more, they are easy to apply, require little to no maintenance, and can be used with other lash treatments.
They are a convenient, low-maintenance, and relatively inexpensive way to achieve longer, thicker, and healthier lashes.
If you are looking for a way to improve the appearance of your lashes, I highly recommend giving lash serums a try!
