As someone who’s struggled with the curse of pin-straight and border-line stubby eyelashes all of my life, lash serums seemed like a work of fiction.  What magic did brands put into their serums in order to cause that kind of growth?  The Ordinarya brand prided in their honest ingredients since 2016managed to create an affordable and effective way to lengthen lashes. The Multi-Peptide Lash and Brow Serum from The Ordinary is the vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free lash product that I’ve been searching for.  

Having garnered attention in the last month from various Tiktok and Instagram influencers, The Ordinary’s Multi-Peptide Lash and Brow Serum is readily available at your local Ulta Beauty Store for a mere $14.50.  The Ordinary serum blows all of its competition out of the water, especially the GrandeLASH MD’s formula which costs almost five times more than the Ordinary and left the skin around my eyes dark and irritated without noticeable lash growth.

Since beginning my trial less than a month ago, it is evident that their Multi-Peptide Lash and Brow Serum actively works.  Having applied the serum as if it were eyeliner on my lashline every night before bed, I have yet to experience any ill effects. However, if you attempt The Ordinary Multi-Peptide Lash and Brow Serum and suffer side effects, the brand gives explicit instructions in their user manual. As health is their number one concern, they thoroughly explain each step making it simple and user-friendly.  Not to mention their no nonsense packaging doesn’t inhibit their effectiveness, it instead proves to me that The Ordinary brand does not need flashy colors and slogans to gain attention.  It is honest with its skincare and beauty products.  

All in all, The Ordinary’s Multi-Peptide Lash and Brow Serum is worth every star in its 5/5 star rating. Their ingredients that cause growth without the use of harmful chemicals is just one contributing factor.  The serum’s cost is also an upside considering that more expensive products are not as effective.  Also, it just plain works.  There is nothing ordinary about their results, my eyelashes have become long and fluttery compared to the stubs they were in the past.  Some may say they’re even extraordinary.
