Review: No7 Fanomenal Lash Serum

YouTube, Twitter & Instagram Username: tinaHL82

Description:  This serum with it's unique blend of ingredients gives thicker, fuller and longer lashes in just 8 weeks.


First off, I have sparse thin upper lashes and even sparser and thinner lower lashes, so whenever a product comes out claiming to make my lashes fuller and longer......I head straight for their counter!

I have used this serum for a good 4 months and wanted to share with you my thoughts on this products and how it worked on me.

Day 1 to 4: My lashes looked darker and healthier (and by healthier, they actually looked more shinier)

Week 2:  Lashes looked glossy, upper lashes looks slightly lengthened, lower lashes looks darker

Week 4:  Upper lashes still looks slightly lengthened (though not greater than week 2) and looks
               slightly fuller.  Lower lashes also looks longer though only slightly

(I did use on my brows but saw no difference in growth where I needed brows to grow!)

I've stopped at week 4 and thereafter, improvement to my lashes sort of reached a plateau.  Like I said, I've used this for around 4 months as I did not want to use the serum after that length of time due to application being around eye area, and I thought I should treat it the same way as I do with mascara.  Though saying that, I know quite a lot was left in the tube.

The only niggle I have with the product is the application brush.  You apply this serum as you would say using a liquid liner.  However, I found the brush way to big which meant it was quite messy to apply and I frequently got some serum into my eyes - which I do no advise at all cos it hurts like hell!!  Also, when popping the brush back into the tube, loads of serum gets pushed out which means 1.Wasted serum and 2.Constant cleaning the opening of the tube.

Overall, I was pretty impressed with this serum.  My lashes did look healthier and I did get a bit of volume and length, which I have to say made a difference to me!  At £22.50, it can be classed as pricey for just a lash serum, however, after checking out other lash serums available, this price is pretty decent.    Compared to prices and results of other lash serums I've tried, if I was to constantly repurchase one lash serum this one might be it based on price and results.  Don't get me wrong, I've tried/trying others that work maybe better than this serum, but price of others means it not feasible to continually purchase, and for products like this, if you stop using, chances are, your lashes will go back to pre-serum condition.

How to use:

Step One - Cleanse the eyes of any make-up

Step Two - Use the applicator to apply a thin line of No7 Fanomenal Lash Serum to the base of the eye lashes along the upper and lower lash lines.
For best results, use the serum every night for at least 8 weeks.
This product can also be used on eyebrows.
