Review: Ardell Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator
Before Purchase: I stumbled across this while looking at false lashes. I googled reviews and didn’t really see any negative ones; everything was a claim that this was a great product. I didn’t think I had much to lose at the price, and being that the it’s applied directly to the lashes like a mascara I was willing to give it a shot (I have concerns about the ones that apply to the lashline).
Price: I paid $3.25 USD at Madame Madeline.
Packaging: Growth Accelerator comes in a clear tube with a spoolie wand, just like mascara. The tube comes in a blister pack.
Ingredients: Water, 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 (castor) seed oil, iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, DMDM hydantoin.
The Product: I decided to do a four-week trial with the accelerator, applying it to both my lashes and my brows; most comments I was seeing claimed a noticeable difference in about two weeks. Admittedly I forgot to apply it three nights in that time frame, but that shouldn’t matter in the overall scheme, right?
There you have it. I took the photos on Thursday morning each week (one week was Friday morning), attempting to keep them as similar as possible. But it’s hard to notice a difference, right?
It’s so hard to notice a difference because there isn’t one. After taking the final photos and comparing them, I realized that next to nothing was happening and promptly stopped bothering with the accelerator.
- Was I happy with my purchase? No.
- Would I purchase Ardell Growth Accelerator again? No, nor will I likely purchase any other lash growth product.
- Rating? 0.5 out of 5 stars.
