DIY Lash Brow Serum
You know what irks me the most when it comes to mascaras? Finding a formula that lengthen and voluminises without clumping is hard enough but the damn tube only has a shelf life of 3 months! Whether you pick up a Benefit or a Maybelline, both are sure to expire at the end of the 3 month mark. This lead me to always picking up a budget mascara even though I have access to high end ones.
Then I thought to myself, why pick up a mascara at all? I have lashes that are naturally curl but because of a silly practical joke by some friends I am now left with short lashes. Not so short that their stubby but much shorter than my original length. I decided to use a DIY serum that promised to increase the length of my lashes by nourishing them from root to tip. And boy! It worked brilliantly!
What you will need:
- Vitamin E capsules/Oil
Vitamin E oil is hard to find in India but the capsules are easily accessible, even if they are a shade more expensive.
- Castor Oil
This is easy enough to find anywhere and is known for its cleansing and nourishing properties which makes it a perfect addition to this DIY.
- Almond Oil
Almond oil is known for its anti oxidant properties and is a wonderful addition to any beauty related DIY, whether it is related to hair care or skin care! But those with any sort of nut allergy should use this oil carefully and only after a patch test.
- Sanitized Jar
Always use a sanitized jar that protects your serum from any direct sunlight. Any oil based DIY needs to be kept in a dark place for its potency to remain for a long time. I have used the Lifeboy Hand Sanitizer (pictured) to sanitize my jar.
- Add 1 tablespoon of Vitamin E oil into the sanitized jar. I have used a sanitized pin to pierce 4 ampoules of Evion, my favorite Vitamin E capsules. But if you are a more efficient person than me 3 capsules should be sufficient. :p
- Add 1 tablespoon of Unrefined Cator Oil.
- Add 1 tablespoon of Almond Oil.
- Mix everything properly till it is a homogenous mixture.
- Apply this mixture over your brows and eyelashes with either a clean mascara wand or with clean fingers. But makes sure that none of this mixture goes into your eyes because it might irritate it.
I have used this serum for the past 3 months and I have seen noticeable results but only after the 2 month mark. So if you use it consistently and not expect miraculously quick results, I am certain that this DIY will change your favorite facial hair’s life. 😉
