Being born with thin, straight lashes, I've always wondered what I could do to make them appear longer and more fluttery. Mascaras can only do so much, and a lash perm looks good for only a few weeks. I also find getting lash extensions scary.

So I decided to go ~natural~. I tested a product that is often raved as a DIY lash thickener/serum: Castor oil! It's rich in omega-6 and 9 fatty acids, vitamin E, and minerals—all must-haves for thicker, stronger strands!

Where To Buy: Watsons Pharmacy

Verdict:

I'm going to keep on using this because my lashes have changed a lot in just two (!!) weeks! I love how this product is so affordable, unlike most eyelash serums that cost thousands of pesos. I'll probably use this to thicken my brows, too!
