Hi, I’m Denni, and my lashes are short sparse and stubby, please raise your hands if you are here with me on this one because today I have an NYK1 lash force growth serum review for you !!
As you come into your 40s, all sorts of unwanted gifts keep happening, and one of these “beautiful gifts “ I receive is getting my natural lashes even more short and sparse than before. Hello mother nature, do you hear me? That wasn’t needed really. I had a 60y old woman lashes in my 20’s already.
I guess pretty unusual because I have hair! I always had beautiful thick locks; my eyebrows keep growing in spite of me plucking on them every two weeks since the age of 14, as for the rest of my body hair while isn’t really a lot is thick and black. My waxing lady can tell you about healthy roots and unusual fast growing circle *face palm
While I could complain hours on my skin or my other parts, but I had never complained of my hair.
Beside my lashes, they have always been short and stubborn .. like they won’t ever hold a decent curl even after a crimp or two with an eyelash curler and once I hit 40’s is like I saw them literally getting even more sparse
I knew right then that I needed something more than an excellent mascara, and I needed that asap.
I never really got into fake eyelashes, somehow they always look weird on me, mostly they are too big taking all the space between my eye and my eyebrow and not in a pretty way. Getting lash extension .. hum dunno 3 hours of sitting still with my eyes perfectly closed is a significant challenge, and it seems terribly high maintenance for a do-it-yourself kind of girl like me.
Naturally, I was trying all the remedies I knew about as moisturizing them with castor and argan oil, but that will make my lash a bit heavy and overall not a pleasant feeling, but I wasn’t quite ready to test a lash growth serum.
One rainy day this beauty came in the post box, the gorgeous Lydia, creative manager of NYK1, has sent this NYK1 lash force growth serum to me. OH, boy was I happy to receive this, and while reading about the product on their website their promise for “gorgeous, powerful, striking and healthy-looking natural lashes” made me dream about me having these longer and fuller lashes and maybe even grow these few hairs missing in my eyebrows.
NYK1 lash force growth serum comes in a metallic tube similar to the liquid eyeliner tubes, with an easy to apply felt tip applicator.
NYK1 Lash Force Growth Serum Review
What is it
NYK1 Lash Force is an innovative, concentrated 3 in 1 eyelash & brow serum that combines specific purified ingredients that regenerate, rebuild and activate growth in both length and thickness to protect the structure of each follicle
Who is it for
anyone with thin or short lashes
How do you use it?
Apply twice each day on clean skin just like liquid eyeliner to the base of the lashes
How long did I test it
While the ingredient list is not available on NYK1 website, I have been able to locate them in one of the answers they give to costumers on amazon.com. Yayy thank you, Amazon costumers.
Also since the ingredient list comes from Amazon, please do check with NYK1.
Purified Water, Disodium Phosphate, Cellulose Gum, Citric Acid, Swertia Japonica Extract, Panax Ginseng Extract, Biotin, Sodium Chloride, Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) and Benzalkonium Chloride.
The product itself is formulated in China, and the NYK1 Brand is from England, United Kingdom.
What’s formulated without
Don’t know, generally speaking, products that come from China are not cruelty-free, but at the best of my knowledge, if they are only formulated in China, and they don’t sell there, the products can be cruelty-free.
How does it smell?
Slight chemical smell, very subtle, not bad
Can it be taken around the eyes
Yes, the product is designed to be applied at the base of eyelashes in the same way you would apply an eyeliner.
What did I like about:
The lash force Growth serum from NYK1 is a thin, transparent consistency that is unnoticeable is dermatologically & ophthalmologist tested and safe for contact lens users.
While it didn’t give me princess lashes (i let u be the judge on that ), I had no irritation, and I could not feel any discomfort during the trial time
What I didn’t like about
I cant say that there were things I did not like about the NYK1 lash force growth serum but I had higher expectations.
Certainly, this is not an instant working product; I think only now after 6-7 weeks of using it finally started to show some growth. So you are in the game for a long time. And you need to commit to using it twice a day every day.
Also, it contains citric acid, so if you have sensitive skin, this may be an irritant for you.
