How I Lost All My Eyelash and How I Grow Them Back: L'Oreal Renewal Lash Serum Review

Once upon a time, I was curious how eyelash extension works. My friend who had it looked so gorgeous with her new eyelash extension. I wanted to try it out so badly. The first few weeks I had a flattering pair of eyelashes. But few weeks after, I was suffering from the consequence... to my horror my real lashes dropped off together with the extension!!!

I told my BFF that I had no eyelash left at that time (except for those tiny bits left). She laughed at me. Well, I learnt my lesson. So it's time to overcome my tiny lashes problem.

I think it must be a godsent when I saw free sample request of L'Oreal Renewal Lash Serum on website and I quickly applied for it. Remember the free sample website I've told you guys before here? No? Basically, you just need to sign up for an account and watch out for the products that put up for application. When it is up for sampling, you need to apply for it and wait for the result whether your application is successful. will send the product to your home.

Now.... everyone please thank me for telling you guys this awesome website. What are you waiting for? Faster, thank me now!!!

OK... back to my eyelash story...

My application for the L'Oreal Renewal Lash Serum was successful. Yes!!! My journey to growing back my lashes starts here.

What is it?
A concentrated serum enriched with Arginine, a major component of Keratin, and Madecassodide, for an intensive boost. Your lashes seem nourished and seem stronger, like re-activated.

The texture is like normal face serum. It doesn't feel sticky and dries up really fast and clear. It doesn't cause irritation to the eyes, I appreciate this feature the most because I tried other eyelash serum, they sting badly.

You suppose to apply this during the day and night to achieve maximum result. Although it's not mentioned anywhere that it can be applied under mascara, I tried it and it still works.


To make my life easier, I actually omitted the instruction. I apply it like how I normally apply my mascara. I think, as long as all my lashes are coated with the serum, it would be fine. The applicator comes in the shape of mascara wand, which is so easy to handle.

1. The serum strengthen lashes and provides nourishment.
2. Delivers fast result. You can see how your lashes grow more and longer within a week. In my case, less than a week.
3. Although it doesn't mention on the product description, this serum actually helps lashes grow longer too.
4. Reduce eyelash drop-off.
5. Can be applied under mascara.
6. Affordable and easily available. You can get it from most drugstores that sell L'Oreal products. The price is about RM49.90.
7. Easy application. It comes with a mascara type wand. You just need to coat it on top of your lashes.

1. Scientifically, your eyelash is able to grow to a certain thickness and length. Once it grows completely, this product cannot provide its function anymore, until when you need it again. But you can continue to use it to avoid lashes falling off.

My two cents:
An award should be given to the person invented this. To be honest, I didn't have much hope on the product before using it. A lot of people told me that it takes ages to grow back eyelashes naturally. Nonetheless, I went on to try this serum. I don't have nothing to lose right... After all I've already lost all of my lashes. LOL! But miracle happen right before my eyes (no pun intended). And I'm amazed that this serum delivers more than what they promised. My lashes now grow longer and more in just 3 days. A lot of my friends told me that the actual result can only be seen after two weeks, I'm proud that I'm special. In just 3 days my eyelashes grew longer, thicker and stronger.

Who should get this?
Anyone who wish to have longer and stronger eyelashes. People who suffer from post-eyelash extension disorder like me! And those who have problem with eyelash constantly dropping off.

Will I repurchase this?
Oh, definitely YES! I just don't know when because the tube seems pretty big and I only need a little each application.

***Product is sent to me by but review is of my own opinion.

Oh thanks for review this product! I'm hesitating whether to buy L'Oreal or Talika product..
Do you have any side effect until now?

Jerine said...

@Jocy: No side effect until now. And I'm still loving it.

Tammy said...

wow you're one of the rare few who can see results in such a short time, normally it takes after 4 weeks to see significant results, 2 weeks to see any improvements.
