Review: Ardell Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator



Quality: 2 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Price: $5
Where to buy: Rite Aid, drugstore.com

How it works: Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator is a concentrated serum of multi-proteins that works to immediately repair weak lashes and restore thickness of over-tweezed or thinning brows. Added conditioners soften dry, brittle lashes enabling them to grow longer, thicker and fuller.

Directions: After cleansing face, brush on to lashes and/or brows. Leave on all night.

PROS: This works good as an eyebrow gel. I use it to hold my eyebrow hairs in shape.

CONS: First of all, it SMELLS AWFUL! After a month I stopped using this on my lashes because when I would put it on the smell was just too strong. I can still use it on my brows because then its not so close to my nose and I can just hold my breath. It hasn't made my lashes or brows and thicker at all, I've been using this almost everyday for over 3 months.

Ingredients: Water (aqua), Paeonia Suffruticosa Extract, Panthenol, Polytetrafluoroethylene, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, VP DMAPA Acrylates Copolymer, Polyquaternium 37, Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, PPG 1 Trideceth 6, Ricinus Communis Seed Oil (Castor), Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, DMDM Hydantoin

YAY! So I'm not the only one who can't deal with the awful smell. I seriously have to throw mine out within 2 wks because of the horrible smell!!! Although it did help my eyelash grow a little bit.

I have been using this product for almost a month and what a difference it has made. My eyebrows have filled in and are getting thick!!! It has also helped my lashes. They are getting thicker and longer. I don't mind the smell at all. I would highly recommend!
