Lil Miss Resourceful: Castor oil for eyelash growth

Recently, I have noticed that my eyelashes have become thinner. Unfortunately L'oreal have stopped selling their eyelash serum (or maybe they do sell it, but it's always sold out in Boots and Superdrug), so I decided to look for more natural methods to increase the thickness of my eyelashes.

Cue a Google search, and I found the secret ingredient - Castor oil! 

After reading several reviews on the Internet, I decided to purchase it from Amazon for a mere £3 (including delivery charge for a 100ml bottle)

The first time I used it, I applied the oil directly on my eyelashes using my fingers, just after removing my eye makeup. The next morning - I noticed thicker eyelashes! The results were so quick it was unbelievable! You can also use a cotton bud to apply the oil on your eyelashes.

I have been using Castor oil for several weeks now and have noticed a major difference to my eyelashes. They are not necessarily any longer, but definitely thicker and healthier! 

The great thing about Castor oil is that it is natural and cheap! You can even apply it to your hair and eyebrows to promote growth! 

I love this oil! It's definitely something that I cannot live without right now (especially with the amount of mascara I apply!) 

Have you ever used Castor oil?


  1. I've never used Castor Oil, but I've heard good things about it! I think my eyebrows need some help so I might just use this! Thanks for sharing!


  2. Nice tip - might have to try this! x

  3. I LOVE castor oil! I used it a few years ago to bulk up my hair.

    But I have read that because the oil is incredibly thick, it sticks to the hair which gives the illusion of thicker hair/lashes.
