Review: Queen Cosmetics Eyelash Cream

There was a lot of hype in the blogosphere about products like RapidLash and RevitaLash. I tried the former day in, day out for months on end. Finished the tube and didn't really notice a difference. Had I really wasted £40? I think I did unfortunately. Then Little Miss Sceptical was given the chance to try Queen Cosmetics Eyelash Cream...


Queen Cosmetics sayQueen Eyelash Cream is a unique and classic Queen product created back in the 1930s. It really is a tiny pot of wonder! It can be used when you don't want to wear mascara but want to define your lashes a little or, even better, for conditioning lashes to prevent dryness and breakages or to help repair dry, damaged lashes.  Some of our customers also use it to keep eyebrows neat and glossy-looking. 

I say: I've been using Queen Cosmetics Eyelash Cream daily for just over a month now. It's simple and easy to use and I always slick some on to my lashes and brows every night without fail after cleansing. I also wear it during the day if I'm having a no make up day to not only treat my lashes to some moisturising nourishment but also to define them a little. I've found that my lashes have substantially improved using this product which surprised me as I wasn't getting results with RapidLash which costs 4 times the price of Queen Cosmetics Eyelash Cream. My lashes are fuller, longer and stronger and my upper lash lines are now more densely populated than they were before!


Queen Cosmetics say:  To improve the condition of your lashes, use Queen Cosmetics Eyelash Cream daily, by applying it gently with your fingertips to cleansed eyes. As with all Queen Cosmetics skin care products, Eyelash Cream is free from irritating perfume, masking fragrance essential oils and is not tested on animals; a real bonus if you suffer from sensitive skin, or your eyes have a sensitivity to eye make-up.

I say: After cleansing, I slick some of the product on to a clean finger and gently apply to my upper and lower lash lines and also to my brows to give them some much needed nourishment. Whilst gathering product information for this review, I came across the following on the Queen Cosmetics website:

"Do you ever wonder why men often have much better eyelashes than women - longer, glossier and thicker? It is often said that one reason is because they do not wear mascara so their eyelashes are not subjected to the daily application and removal process which can cause lashes to become dry, brittle or broken."

I've never really given it much thought before but I think they're right when they say men have better lashes than we do. One of my male work colleagues has the most enviable set of lashes I've ever seen. I've yet to see a woman with natural lashes to rival. And it simply must be because of our use of make up and make up removers. Lo and behold, using Queen Cosmetics Eyelash Cream really does pay off and the proof is in the photos...

Both of the above photos are of my natural lashes - not a product or mascara in sight!
