What is the best way to apply the brow and lash serum?  It really burns my eyes if I get too much.  I've been using an eyeliner brush.  Is that how everyone else finds the best way to apply it?

Are you applying it to the skin, where the lashes grow from?

Yes right above the lash line.  If I get too much or just use the tube it gets too much and runs into my eyes.

You could try using a Q-tip, or even your finger.

From our last newsletter:
Q.  I am excited to use the Brow and Lash Serum I bought, however I don't quite understand the application process. The serum looks to be in a lip gloss tube, so I can see that I might just squeeze some on my brow line, but what about lash line? How do I apply it? Is it bad to get it on the lid ---- don't want to grow hair there But how much, and with what do I apply it? Thanks in advance for any information you can send. Please do not add me to any marketing lists. If this works, you will have gained a loyal customer, but I do not like getting promotional emails. Thanks!

A. First of all, your eyelid will NOT grow lashes, simply because those skin cells are not programmed to grow hair.   If the serum goes anywhere else but the cells in charge of growing eye lashes all it is going to do is provide some nutrition. Even if it gets within the eye, at most it may sting but it will not change the eye color (like products with medication for glaucoma).  

How to apply the serum - You can choose any method that works for you, as long as you apply the serum to the skin at the eyelash line, where eyelashes are formed.  Those are the cells we are trying to reach. The eyelashes themselves are 'dead" (they are protein, there are no cells there).  Use a Q-tip, or your finger, or any tool, as long as it is clean.

“How long will it take? “ I would give it two months, although you should see new eye lashes sprouting within a couple of weeks.

“What if it does not work for me?” It works for most people. If it doesn’t, see whether there is something else that is preventing eye lashes from growing. Maybe the cells in charge of growing lashes died out, for excess plucking or whatever reason. Maybe there is an underlying medical condition. Make sure you take your multivitamins, any good quality brand will do. Finally, try to take a vacation for mascara. Most mascaras contain lots of wax and this ingredient may interfere with penetration of our serum or even block the follicle.
