I’ve tried a few over-the-counter eyelash growth serums here and there, and none of them worked. They all seemed gimmicky to me. When I received a package of Lashem Measurable Difference Lash & Brow Serum ($70) in the mail, I was convinced it was going to be the same as the others — making big promises and falling short.
I was dead wrong.
A few months ago, in the heat of an obsessive-compulsive moment, I plucked off the bottom half of my right eyebrow. I just went right up the line, from the starting point up to the arch, and plucked away. I tried to make my brows more shapely, but in reality, I just hacked them. It was a really bad botch job that took a ridiculous amount of time to correct each morning. (Are you getting how bad this was?) My bangs partially covered it, which was my only saving grace.
I waited patiently. And waited and waited. Nothing grew back–not even a little bit of baby-fine hair sprouted in the area that I had butchered. I started to think that half of my brow was gone forever.
And then a little box arrived in the mail from a lovely lady at Lashem. Inside was a full-sized tube of Measurable Difference, their lash-enhancing serum. This serum is clinically tested, and contains no peptides. I have pretty long, relatively thick lashes, so I decided to use this serum where it was needed more: on my botched brow.
I applied the serum at night, examining my brow in a lit magnifying mirror the next morning (come on, I wanted to see if it worked!). No regrowth. Then, about two weeks after I started using the serum, a few fine hairs sprouted in the bald area. I was hopeful.
I’ve now been using the serum for about two months. My hacked brow has fully grown back, and then some. All of the previously bald areas are now filled in. There is also new growth along the entire length of the brow (where I applied the serum), even through the tail of the brow, which I did not touch with the tweezers. I truly would not have believed it if it didn’t actually happen to me. The butchered brow is even thicker than my other brow (I used it one the bad brow only, with the other brow serving as the control in this beauty experiment). This serum took a skinny, crooked brow and transformed it back to its old thick, full state. And the amazing part is, I didn’t even use it daily! I tried to be regular about it, but of course I forgot pretty frequently.
Every body is different and responds differently to treatments such as this, but for me, this is the only one that has ever spurred regrowth of brow hairs.
I still have a good amount of product left, so now I’m moving onto my lashes.
There is nothing else I can say about Measurable Difference other than IT WORKS!
