LiLash Purified Eyelash Serum

By Charlotte on February 7, 2013 3:08 PM

Time for a victory dance! I'm celebrating because one of my favorite doctors, Dr. Danielle LeBlanc, found no cause for alarm during my annual breast exam. Whew! That is HUGE for a three-almost-four-year breast cancer survivor like me.

What's more, she complimented my eyelashes during the visit! That's another biggee because, as a plastic surgeon, beauty is Dr. LeBlanc's business. Besides doing an amazing job rebuilding my breasts from 0- to C-cup after a double mastectomy (there's no one I'd rather have on my team), she turned me onto Latisse to help my eyelashes grow back after chemo.

Well, I was wearing one of my four, new favorite mascaras: Laura Mercier Full-Blown Volume. And, thanks to a little nudge from my dear friend Beverly Mann, I've been using LiLash in hopes my lashes will "Grow, baby, grow" for about five weeks.

What the Experts Say

LiLash purified eyelash serum strengthens and conditions follicles to enhance the natural beauty of your eyelashes. Apply this physician-developed formula once a day, morning or evening, to clean dry skin along the lash line of the upper eyelid. Since it's highly concentrated, you need only a little to boost eyelash health and reduce breakage. Use LiLash daily for eight to twelve weeks until you're satisfied with your lashes. Then you can cut back to twice weekly.



What I Tested

I'm trying a tube of LiLash which should last about six months if used daily as recommended.



What I like

LiLash has worked for some of my best friends. Bev, who always finds the best deals, discovered this lash builder and raved about it to our group, calling it her "miracle worker."


Linda and Terry 300.jpgAfter doing a double-take at Bev's incredibly lush lashes, I learned my soul sister, fellow breast-cancer survivor and go-to beauty advisor Linda Storer was also a fan. LiLash did a beautiful job filling in a space where she had trouble growing lashes after chemo.

Another convert, Bev's and my hair stylist Mary Jane Garza, says her lashes grew so much she had to trim them. Imagine that!


Such high praise and you don't even need a prescription to buy it. Even better, you don't have to worry about LiLash changing the color of your eyes. Unlike some other eyelash serums, it doesn't alter shades of green and blue so long as you use it as directed. That's a real relief for blue-eyed Boomers like me.

Using LiLash is easy. You don't need special brushes or other extras. Just think of it as clear eyeliner that you put on only your upper lash line once a day. I like sweeping it on at night before bed but if I forget I can use it the next morning after cleaning my face. I just have to let it dry two or three minutes before putting on makeup.


After only five weeks, I'm lovin' that my lashes seem thicker and healthier. Since they're blonde, you can't really see them without mascara. But my new-found volume means it's simpler to apply mascara, I can get away with one coat instead of three and my lashes can even attract the attention of a beauty pro like Dr. LeBlanc. Nice improvement!
