The Rimmel 30 day lash challenge!

So last week Rimmel launched their brand new mascara. They describe lash accelerator as 'a breakthrough...mascara that actually helps to promote the natural growth of beautifully long, remarkably strong lashes.' They also go on to say that 'Instantly, your lashes will look up to 80% longer, but then after 30 days of continued use, they'll appear up to 117% longer looking.' The 'breakthrough' is the growth lash complex which the mascara contains and claims to have 3 superior lash enhancing benefits:

FORTIFIES - helps minimise lash loss (if I try to say this it comes out as 'lash losh'!)

NOURISHES - supports lashes to grow strong and long

RENEWS - helps repair and restore lashes

All sounds good to me! :D

The length of my lashes isn't too bad, I would say they're probably average length. So anything that claims to makes them even longer is always going to be worth a go as I think I look like a drag queen with false lashes (no joke!) so they're a no go for me!

Currently there are a few places which have lash accelerator at a reduced price, I bought mine in Tesco for £6.99 and I have seen it in superdrug for the same price. The R.R.P is £8.99 and it comes in 2 colours - Black & brown.

Yesterday was my first day of using the mascara and I thought I would take pictures to document the effects (if any) the mascara has on my lashes over 30 days. The first pic is my natural lashes with nothing on and the next is after one coat of lash accelerator.

As a mascara I really like it. The wand is small which means I can get to the tiny lashes and get right to the lash line comfortably (and without making a mess!). I think being able to get the wand right into the lash line (something I usually struggle to do) had a pulling effect on my lashes making them look slightly longer. Nowhere near up to the 80% claim though. However, I will continue to use the mascara for the 30 days and cross my fingers and toes that it works!
