Product Review: Ardell Lash & Brow Growth Accelerator

.

Did you accidentally over tweeze again? Or did that hyped up mascara pull off your precious lashes? Well have no fear! Ardell is here!

We have all done it. We made our eyebrows TOO thin than we would like, or lost a few lashes here and there, and we find ourselves waiting for months for our precious hairs to grow back again. With Ardell's Lash & Brow Growth Accelerator, it speeds up the process and before you know it, your hairs are growing!

Product: 5 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Quality: 5 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5

What the product says:
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.

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

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

I bought this after many reviews from Makeup Alley and 80% of people said they would buy it again. I went to ULTA with the BF a few weeks ago and picked this baby up, it was only $4 so why the heck not? I already have long ass eyelashes so I had nothing to lose!

PROS: No funky smell (big bonus for me, I hate things that smell funky!), it made my eyelashes THICKER, my eyelashes are naturally pretty long as it is, but this made them a bit thicker, rather than long and thin, and I really noticed it after 4 days of using this stuff. I have NOT tried it on my eyebrows, but reader Esraa said she used it once on her thin eyebrows and all the hairs grew back in no time! I LOVE how it works while you sleep! On CLEAN lashes, apply a few coats before bedtime, and it starts to work overnight, giving you luscious longer and thicker lashes, as well as eyebrows. I also noticed that my eyelashes were a lot stronger and durable, and not so brittle. Usually i'd lose a mascara hair or two, but my eyelashes are a lot stronger now. I don't think my findings are from some sort of a "placebo effect" as I originally didn't think it would work nor would I notice a difference; but after about a week, my lashes were SO much thicker, not sure if you guys can tell from recent FOTD's, but they are! The price isn't shabby at all, at $4-$7 (depending where you go), it's a great product to try!

CONS: I personally do not have any cons about this product.

Overall: I like it, and would buy it again. I know many of you probably have tried this particular product or something similar with no results, but I think with repeated usage you will notice a difference. As it's design is to HELP enable your eyebrows and eyelashes grow FASTER, so in order to see some results you must use this for at least a month, it various from person to person. I have used it for about 2 weeks so far and I am happy with the results, even if it did NOT make my lashes longer or thicker in the end, they are no longer brittle and a lot stronger, so I would be happy regardless! And besides it's very affordable!

Interesting how many people are talking about their brows when im in a brow crisis myself. I bought the Ardell growth accelerator stuff right after the lady messed up my brows and i think its making the area's hair grow faster then usual.

Violet Honeybee said...

I'm the opposite.. I don't need my brows to grow any faster than they already do since they're like big black caterpillars on my face. >.<

Maybe I'll try them for my lashes though lol

MakeupByRenRen said...

ohhh i love this stuff too! it really does work...i kinda fell off in using it though, but i'm jumping back on the bandwagon thanks to this review!

(g)ezebel said...

really?? i was wondering if this product was for real. i mean, you know "if it's too good to be true." shoot, now i gotta buy one with my next madam madeline order.

p.s. if i ever get around to getting my shirts done, i will definitely send you one. but only if you pose in Maxim wearing it and a matching bikini bottom. :0P

what's your ring size? i'm still looking for a silver vendor who makes smaller ring sizes -- right now, i think i only have sizes 9 and 10 -- i can't even wear my own rings!!! how 'bout a pendant? i'll custom make one of my faves for ya.

that's great! i thought this is too good to be true too.
I have really short and skimpy lashes. I would love to try this!
thanks for the review!

I love this stuff! I remember my first ABB entry consisted of me advertising how amazing this thing works lol I've been using it close to maybe 2 yrs now ;)

Christiana Divine @ Memoirs of A Shopping Addict said...

i think i need this then... since i'm in the process of growing out my brows... it's worth a shot. LOL. :D

e said...

I thought I heard something about castor oil doing the same thing...I definitely remember that vaseline is suppose to strengthen your lashes over time as well.

Your thoughts Vanessa?

Fabu-less Beauty said...

OOOoooO makes me want to go out and try this. Love your blog!

SweetlySeductive said...

Thanks so much for posting a review. I am SO anxious to try this, now! My poor, little lashes could use it! :)

Esraa said...

MUA has plenty of reviews on it too :) and progress pics

I LOVE this product. The eyelashes on my left eye used to be shorter than those on my right eye until I used this. Now they are longer! (I only used it on that eye) Now I need to start using it on the right eye instead of the left, lol.

yummy411 said...

great. I wasn't trying to go any further than vaseline on the lashes but you make me wanna try this. stop nessa!

karen, makeupandbeautyblog.com said...

I've seen it before and it terrifies me (but maybe I'm just a wimp like that). If I were these Ardell folks I'd find a way to turn that into hair growth on male pattern baldness! Then I'd never have to work again (le sigh).

Lani said...

thank you so much vanessa! i was at a drugstore last night and i was going to pick this baby up. but i was thinking to myself, "nah i should wait for vanessa's review" lol. serious as a heart attack. now i have to go back tonight and get it! lol.

edm325 said...

I have always wanted long eyelashes...it's a dream of mine. I will try this because I am interested in anything that will give me long lashes.

Sara said...

mrslanielovesmac said...

Vanessa, great review and very tempting! I heard a lot of people raved about this product and I am so tempting to try it because my eyebrows are so sparsed from excessive plucking. LOL! Anyway, do you think other drug stores carry this product since Ulta is not nearby my location? Thanks!

Thicker lashes? I am so there! Thanks for posting about this, Nessa.

Vanessa said...

Glad it worked for some of you ladies! It's available I believe in most drugstores...

marsha said...

I hope you all are serious about this product. I bought Walgreens brand rogaine but have been inconsistent out of fear. I just ordered "billion dollar brows" eyebrow kit and used it for the first time tonight. I'm totally annoyed because I paid $55 for the kit. I'm so desperate. I NEVER allow anyone to do my eyebrows-took a try for mother's day and lost all. They were fairly decent brows but very light colored. I used to use a pencil -now I need a magic marker. :(

i had this product in my drawer for 4mos,i'm just lazy to use it, but i saw it 3weeks ago while i was cleaning my room, and use it every night,at first i thought it's not gonna work, but i just notice my lashes,thicker and curler! it work but it will take a while,but it's worth the wait,and it's cheap!i'm asian but one day somebody ask me if i'm hispanic,because of my thick lashes!
