You may be familiar with RapidLash which is a lash growth product. The same company have released this new product called RapidShield.
Here is what they have to say about it:
Eyelashes need daily defence from external factors including pollution, makeup, makeup tools and other daily beauty treatments that can weaken lashes. Whether used alone or under mascara, RapidShield™ Eyelash Daily Conditioner is at the ready to help protect, moisturise and nourish all day long to amplify lashes. Eyelashes will appear more voluminous-looking and naturally defined.
An exclusive Hexatein™3 Complex, contains a blend of six amazingly effective ingredients: Sodium Hyaluronate, Silk Amino Acids, Biotin, Panthenol, Apple Fruit Cell and Pumpkin Seed Extracts. Hexatein™3 Complex helps to hydrate, condition and rejuvenate the youthful appearance of lashes. These effective ingredients help drench lashes with hydration, seal in moisture, and protect them against the elements.
The triple benefits of RapidShield™ Eyelash Daily Conditioner:
1) Condition A daily conditioning treatment for eyelashes for visible improvement in condition and overall appearance of lashes in just 2 weeks*
2) Prime Use it under mascara to prime lashes for extra definition when mascara is later applied
3) Refresh/Define Apply it over the top of mascara to add a glossy shine and refresh the look
RapidShield costs £28.00 and its available online and in Boots stores.
I have been using this everyday for the last 3 weeks. I use this at night after I have removed all my eye makeup and I also use it in the mornings as a mascara primer.
The brush is nice and big and its easy to work through my lashes. There is no particular scent which I think is good.
As a primer I think this only makes a small difference to my lashes, it does help to add volume but its not anything fantastic to be honest. It dries quickly allowing me to apply my mascara in a jiffy.
Where I think this product is a winner is when its used at night as a lash treatment. Over the last3 weeks I have seen an improvement in my lashes. They seem to be softer, a little more glossy and I also feel that I havent lost as many as I normally do.
I like this product but I do think its quite pricey. The tube will probably last around 3 months (I am treating as I would a mascara) and so that is just under £10 per month in terms of cost.
I would say overall, this is not a “must have” product but it would make a nice addition to a beauty routine, if you have the spare funds.
If you are very sprapped for cash and this is out of your budget, try applying coconut oil to clean lashes at night with a cotton pad. This is a great natural lash conditioner – you might not see the same results as RapidShield but it does help to keep lashes in tip top condition. Just make sure the oil is pure!
Here are the ingredients:
