Ok, so who doesn't want long lashes?! I mean come on, it's every girl's dream to have pretty long luscious lashes. Since going green I kind of resided to the fact that my lashes maybe wouldn't be as vamped up as my mainstream product using friends. But I had made peace with it. I mean I wasn't about to use any sort of toxic glue near my eyes or toxic eyelash serum…no thanks! Well, thankfully this green junkie didn't have to wait long, until the green beauty industry came out with a natural lash enhancing serum. Yes, ladies you heard me right-A NATURAL LASH ENHANCING SERUM…was I in heaven? Ok, maybe not, but I was definitely a step closer. Let me introduce you to my new friend…or should I say best friend?!
Plume is a natural lash enhancing serum that delivers fuller, more dramatic looking lashes. Sign me up…you had me at lash enhancing. The idea was birthed by a mom-much like myself. Can you say girl power?! And before you go getting all crazy ingredient police on me, let me inform you that it's completely natural. Not natural, like people say petroleum is natural (btw it's not) but natural as in every ingredient I can pretty much pronounce and know. It even scores a big fat zero on the ThinkDirty app…holla. They list out ingredients on their website and why it's used in their formula…another gold star. Plus, all their ingredients are plant derived. Oh, and not only is it “really” natural but it “really” works…in case you were wondering, which I'm pretty sure if you're still reading this, you are.
Here's the science behind it, are you ready (put on your safety glasses, it's about to get all sciencey…not really). Plume explained it so well I'm going to let them say it:
Our proprietary formula is designed to have a duel effect on the appearance of your lashes and brows:
1st by supporting the health and hydration of each hair follicle, and
2nd by supporting the longevity of those hair follicles
When it comes to the health, hydration and longevity of all living organisms (like the hair cells in your lashes) nothing compares to the effectiveness and purity of plant-derived ingredients. If you're familiar with juicing, particularly the benefits of juicing fresh vegetables, think of Plume as a botanical super-juice for the hair follicles of your lashes and brows.
Did you catch that? So basically by supporting your hair follicles with all the nutrients they need, they're able to grow and be strong. Makes sense to me, very similar to the hairs on our head(sorry the stylist in me is coming out). I like to think of Plume as a vitamin for your lashes and brows-with ingredients like aloe, castor oil, vitamin e, etc.
So you can hear all this science jargon but how did it work on me?? Well, let me tell you: It works, it worked, whatever you want to say. This stuff is my new jam and I can't get enough. I've been using it for about 7 weeks now and my lashes are long and strong. Of course I took a before pic for you guys, what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't?! And of course there's an after pic…so check them out below. My lashes are considerably longer now and just look fab…I mean is there any other way to say it? It comes in a wand like brush similar to a mascara wand, but instead of a mascara brush at the end it's looks like a small little paint brush. You just paint the creamy looking formula right on your lash line on the root of clean lashes, like you would eyeliner. I would just do it before going to bed, but you can do it in the morning and put on your makeup as you normally would(let it dry for a couple minutes first). It didn't irritate my eyes at all. It went on creamy and dried clear. They say one bottle lasts about 6-8 weeks depending on if you're using it for both bottom and top lashes. I just put it on my top lashes. I did use it on a couple spots on my brows but I didn't see a difference with them. However, in all fairness I've never had hair in those spots, so not sure there is even a hair follicle to condition for growth! Plume has said it is possible to see results in as little as two weeks, but for optimal results they recommend waiting 6-8 weeks. It would also be a great supplement for those who have just gotten off eyelash extensions, and their lashes are weak and brittle.
Here are the before and after pics. I tried to get closer so you could see the difference.
I would recommend this for anyone who wants longer/fuller lashes or brows. It has given me lashes I'm proud to bat about, and I'm proud to share the product because of the ingredients! It's simple, you all need this. Plus, what better Christmas gift or stocking stuffer.
