AMW Reviews: L'Oreal Renewal Lash Serum

Happy Gorgeous Thursday gorgeous people!  Thanks for coming back to read my post daily!

On my previous post on sharing what I'm using, a lot of you have shown interest on the L'Oreal Renewal Lash Serum, so, the good girl in me have to come up with a good, accurate and concise review as soon as possible! :)

This reminded me of the Ardell Brow and Lash Accelerator which works fine, but as soon as I stopped using it, my lashes went back to its natural state.   So let me move on to this product and report if this works well or not.

I have TRIED to use this religiously on both day and night, I have to admit, there are some days I've missed it because I am too sleep to even remember!  You have to be reminded that different individuals react to a product differently, so please do not take my word for this! 



L'Oreal Renewal Lash Serum says ---
Give lashes a nourishing boost every day with L'Oreal Paris' first Renewal Lash Serum.  Developed by L'OrĂ©al laboratories following 3 years of lash research, the Renewal Lash Serum has an intensive formula enriched with Arginine and Centella. Lashes feel fortified and nourished.

The professional applicator is designed with a rounded end to treat the lash line whilst the curved edge is tailored to coat the length of the lashes from root to tip.

Clinically tested. Patent pending.


AMW says ---
Pros
  • curved wand that's perfect enough to reach even the inner corner of the lashes

  • I see the effects in shorter period as compared to other lash renewal serum
  • my lashes are more moisturized
  • lashes are softer
  • I saw a tiny increase in length (tiny is ok, better than none at all)
  • no lash fall outs even if I apply mascara more often for this month
  • no eye irritations occur 
  • does not affect the performance of the mascara even having this as a base

Cons
  • to people who have sensitive eyes, this may irritate them a bit if the serum touches the eye area, it did a bit on me but no harm!
  • for impatient people out there, this is not for you, it takes time to really see the result
  • an additional step for lazy people (sorry)
Overall
I have used this without much excitement because I know products like these takes time to really see results (if there's even any).  I wasn't even consistent in application as there are days I am just too lazy and to admit it..I'm getting old to even remember this step!  What surprised me is my hubby was the one who told me about my lashes getting a bit longer than the usual.  He even thought I had mascara on!  That..made me grab a magnifying mirror and stared at my lashes for minutes!  He was right!  There are definitely some minor improvement for less than a month application!

I haven't seen the thickening of my lashes yet, but my lashes are definitely smoother, looks a bit healthier and increases a tiny wee bit of length!  I can tell!  I know my lashes..even better than my bum! *laughs*

Tips
  • consistently apply day and night
  • during the day time, apply prior to mascara application, making sure it is dry before you proceed with mascara application
  • on nighttime, make sure lashes are clean, apply coats of this on bare lashes before going to bed
  • take time in application, I try to apply all areas especially the inner and outer corner of the lashes
  • affordable compared to others and this is readily available!
  • wipe the wand with wet tissue every now and then to keep bacteria from growing
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

Where to purchase and how much?
Locally at L'Oreal counter for Php845.00 (approx $18.37)

Now on to the photos!  The photos taken aren't perfect but that's the best we can do to show you how the product works :)  Hope this helps!

Closed eye shot
The angle is definitely wrong in this photo, I think my eyes on before shot is more relaxed.  The length is almost the same in this angle but the after picture has shown better and healthier looking lashes.


Open eyed shot
You can definitely see my lashes a bit longer in the center, the inner corner of the lashes are still the same (non-existent)


Side view shot
In this angle, the length of the lashes looks the same, but looking closely you can see the outer corner of the lashes on the after shot has some extra lash growth, not much but still, there are some new lashes growing on that area.  The fullness looks the same but the lashes in this angle on the after photo looks more conditioned...you think so too?


If there are any major changes after several weeks, I'll definitely report back!   I hope my review helps those who have weak and sparse lashes like mine.  Just a friendly reminder again, when you purchase products like this, please do not expect immediate result, and please be careful in testing out new products, be very keen on the negative reactions.  There's no "BEAUTY" in anything harmful for you!  Keep that in mind as it's well said by an 'old and mature' woman! *points to YOU* gotcha! :P

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  8. Coolness! My heart skipped a beat when I read you've posted a review on L'oreal Renewal Lash Serum!

    I know there's no such thing as a super effective lash serum (because if there is, then cosmetic companies won't earn more money by concocting new serums) but I'll definitely try this one!

  9. Oooh, I've been so curious about this! Thanks so much for doing a review on it! I think it's worth trying out, yea?

  10. Thanks for posting this. I hate that my lashes are short and sparse. Mascara doesn't help much because, as I said, my lashes are so short they just end up smudging no matter the brand. I'm going to try this one as soon as my fake eyelashes falls of! You should try that! So pretty!

    Love the blog.
