3 Reasons Why Eyelash Serum Is Better Than Falsies

Having long and flattering eyelashes have quickly become one of the world’s top beauty trends in 2019. Both natural and false lashes have their place in the beauty community, but it’s safe to say that false lashes are unmatched. With false lashes, you can transform your look entirely, with long, feathering looking lashes, or curled princess looking lashes. While these styles are beautiful, strip and individual lashes can pose a problem in the future for your lash line. This is why serums are on the rise, and Dr. Longwill has the Best Eyelash Serum.

What are false lashes?

Eyelash extensions are faux fibers that are glued to your lash line to create a more dramatic look. The lashes are attached by using an adhesive that is strong enough to allow the lashes to last for over three weeks. Falsies come in various sizes ranging from mm-18mm and may include a wide variation of curl with options. With a skilled lash technician on hand, false lashes can make the eyes appear more lifted and full.

An eyelash serum, on the other hand, is a liquid enhancer that is made to boost the growth of your natural hair. Once applied on the lash line, your hair follicles will strengthen allowing them to grow longer and fuller. Dr. Longwill’s branded Advanced Eyelash Growth Serum is recommended for anyone wanting to grow lashes long and strong. The medical grade formula includes rand MD HRS-10, a biomimetic peptide combined with a red clover extract rich in Biochanin A, to prevent hair loss, slow thinning, and stimulate new hair growth. While using the Best Eyelash Serum, you will start noticing a difference in your lashes while used as directed.

While wearing falsies is still the more affordable and dramatic way to achieve a new look, there are many risks involved that prove that eyelash serum is better than falsies. Here are a few reasons why you should consider the Best Eyelash Serum, our Advanced Eyelash Growth Serum:

Removing false lashes may tear off your natural lashes

False lashes, both strips, and individuals require some form of adhesive to work their magic. When using, most opt into a medical grade lash glue as it will last all night without the embarrassing thought of them falling off. To do this, you’re required to glue directly on the lash line, which in all puts glue on your natural lashes. When removing, it’s best to remove with warm water, but regardless, they still have to be pulled off. While pulling off your lashes, you will pull off some of your natural lashes too. This will stunt growth overtime leaving falsies your only options to lashes.

Falsies can trap dirt

Most strip lashes are reusable, and in time they will trap bacteria and dirt. Yes, the long whispies you know, and love are trapping dirt and bacteria between the fibers. The air quality depends on your location, but there is dust everywhere. Along with makeup products that contain chemicals and bacteria, it’s easy to get the unthinkable trapped in your lashes which can cause infections.

The glue is toxic

Lash glue has been rated one of the most toxic beauty products on the market. One of its main ingredients, Formaldehyde is linked with organ system toxicity making it not safe for your body let alone your eyes. Most glues on the market contain some form of a harsh chemical compound that can cause allergic reactions and cause permanent damage to your eyes. Because lash glue is the key to strip lashes and individuals, it’s almost impossible to maintain your look without it.
