I love lashes yet sadly mother nature was far from generous when she was giving me my 'au naturals' and KELLiLASH without lashes is just well, Kelly (how boring). Kellilash was indeed the name of my eyelash/beauty business that I had some time ago if you didn't know and has stuck ever since as I have always been a lash lover and today, thank god we are lucky enough to have plenty of options to 'fake it'. But nothing comes close to having the real thing, does it? Which is why the sales of lash growth serums have gone through the roof as this is exactly what they promise us. But not all of them work ..... yet some work wonders.

I am always on the lookout for good lash serums as I have tried and recommended a few over the years and even though I have had some good results from them, they were nothing mind-blowing ..... until now!

I was offered the chance to try REALASH by Orphica, a lash growth-boosting serum to see how it faired for review. To be frank, I wasn't expecting too much seeing as I had not heard of it before but was keen to try one that I hadn't. It's always very hit and miss with the amount of products that I get sent to try but this one surprised me the most. Let me tell you, REALASH is a product you need to know about as it abso-freakin-lutely, WORKS!

I recently posted a few pictures to my Instagram Stories and the amount of messages I received asking about my lashes was incredible as I had hinted that I was using something magical so this is the BIG REVEAL!! My pathetic, very short, very fine, natural eyelashes are ready to go to the ball yet won't disappear at midnight, they are in fact all mine! Have a peek below ....

"I woke up like this" ... well with longer lashes that were not glued on that is! So, let me tell you a bit more about this magic serum. 

ORPHICA REALASH Eyelash Enhancer 3ml - £65 / €70 / $80 (link here!)
The active ingredients in this serum help to accelerate lash growth and strengthen your own lashes from the roots and helps to prevent them from falling out. The serum is enriched with active nano peptides and amino acid molecules as well as plant extracts that help to safe guard against inflammation and maintain hydration. If you have naturally weak, short or damaged lashes from extensions and falsies and really want them longer, fuller and stronger, then this is a product for you. Realash state that you should see results after 30 days however you should see a difference at 14 days and after 21 days you shall notice them even more.

You simply apply this serum to your lash line at night before you go to sleep to get the best results possible. The 3ml size is enough for 3 months and there is no benefit to using this more than once a day as it is designed to only be used once, so best not to waste it.

Please Note: Orphica state that Realash is completely safe and suitable for people with sensitive eyes, permanent makeup, contact lenses wearers and false lash users. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, actively undergoing chemotherapy, or under the age of 18, they do not recommend using the enhancer. It does not cause irritations, allergies or change eye colour. These might be common side effects when using many other lash enhancers available on the market but REALASH meets all safety requirements set by dermatologists.

Safety. This is what I get asked the most, are lash serums really safe? I had no terrible side effects with REALASH, so I trust it 100%. Just be mindful when buying products like this that you are buying from a trusted seller and that all is in date. The internet makes it easier for us all to be suckered in to 'cheaper' options which generally means there are reasons why they are cheaper. My advice is always buy wisely and gage opinion before you do.

My REALASH parcel arrived so beautifully in super fancy packaging with a little bag of scented beads that was a really nice touch.

My Results
As I said before, I tried it not really expecting anything dramatic and for the first few weeks of use I didn't really notice much change. It was only after the 3-4 week mark that I noticed whilst applying my mascara that my lashes seemed longer, in fact a lot longer. At first I thought it was the mascara but even without makeup after having tinted my lashes, my god they looked good! It was like someone flipped a switch overnight to ... 'Pow' you have lashes! It literally happened just like that. Now after 3 months of use, it has got to the point where the results speak for themselves and you can see how good my own lashes look and they did not look like this before which sadly I did not capture as I hated them that much, there was not much to see. I also wear glasses and contacts so my eyes are very sensitive and this did not irritate them in any way. No redness, no soreness nothing. 

I am usually someone that never goes out without a 'little enhancement' so for me this is big news. I feel complete when my lashes are looking good and now I can't stop looking at them knowing that they aren't false. It really does do wonders for your self confidence let me tell you! The result makes you look like you have natural lash extensions on but you don't (woohoo!) and they do appear wispy looking which I personally really like. This would be great for those who have worn lash extensions for some time as it shall help to re-build your confidence enough to not have them and let your eyes rest and for anyone having a LVL lash lift, then use this before hand to make a real impact on your final result.

Hands down this is a WINNING LASH SERUM that has done exactly what it said it would do and I am impressed to the max and 100% hooked. Rest assured, I stake my name on it that this one really does work.

Maintaining the Results
I am at that stage where I don't want to lose my newly found lashes and even as I sit here writing this, my lashes look got even better. Realash recommend that you carry on using the serum until you have the result you love then just use it 2/3 times a week in order to maintain that result, so guess I need to buy the next one! You may need two bottles if you don't feel your lashes are quite there yet after one.

There are indeed many other lash serums on the market, some good, some bad and the most talked about one is Lilash. I personally haven't tried Lilash but I have friends that do and get the same amazing results from that one as I have with this. The added benefit to Realash is that it is more affordable being £65 for 3ml as opposed to £61 for 2ml, so this will last you longer for less money.

In Short, REALASH WORKS and is 100% worth the buy.

Because REALASH is so potent, the brand has to control where they sell it but the good news is that it's available online with FREE delivery and they ship internationally as well as offer a 90-day money return policy ... shop here ! They also offer a whole bunch of other products like makeup and skincare plus a Brow Version should you want thicker brows too.

Impressive hey?
