Update and get 10% off at elemis

It's been a while since I last done my last post and I was supposed to record photo evidence of the results of Rimmel's lash accelerator mascara, unfortunately my camera broke and had to be sent away to be repaired (which is bloody typical!) and the camera on my phone is completely useless, anyone else think the quality of camera phones is getting worse?, so to cut a long story short I wasn't able to take pictures of the 'growth' at different stages. I have got my camera back today and I will take a picture to compare the difference in lash length from the first day I applied it, which you can see here, and how my lashes look now, which is 6 weeks later.

I absolutely love this mascara but personally I don't think it has made my lashes grow at all, maybe my opinion will change when I compare the pictures. When I've applied the mascara my lashes are lengthened, my theory is that the shape and size of the wand allows the lashes to be pulled from the root which has a kind of straightening effect (you know how your hair seems a bit longer when you straighten it). I have also received compliments on how long my lashes are looked when wearing it but as I said when my lashes are bare I don't notice any increase.

As a mascara I would recommend it 100%, I love that it doesn't clump at all after 2 coats, which is a problem I usually have with mascaras. It's is a little bit wet but not a bad as some i've tried: Maybelline Pulse Perfection for example! so that really doesn't bother.

The only downsides of this mascara is that when I first started using it, I did experience lash loss and it almost made me stop using it as I worried that in my quest for long lashes I would end up with none! But I did try it again and thankfully I haven't had any more lashes fall out. The other downside is that it isn't waterproof, as someone who has a tendency this is an essential requirement when choosing a new mascara!

If you haven't tried this Superdrug still have it on offer for £6.99 - usual price will be £8.99

Until the end of October have 2 offers running;

The first is 10% off all elemis products, which you can claim by entering this promotional code: AFF1010

The second is a free Devils Mint Body Scrub (20mls) with no minimum spend - To claim this enter promotional code AFFDEVIL

So thats my update for now, I will hopefully get a picture of my current lash length up tomorrow when I've been reacquainted with my camera!

Have any of you tried Lash accelerator and are there any elemis products you recommend?
