Enter: Eyelash growth serums.

While you'll generally need a prescription serum to boost your lash growth cycle, there are some amazing over-the-counter lash 'enhancing' formulas out there.

These kinds of formulas contain ingredients like oils, peptides, panthenol and hyaluronic acid, to improve the strength and appearance of your lashes (meaning they're less likely to fall out early).

The key to results? Consistency.

Below, we've pulled together a list of all of our favourite eyelash serums in Australia, as well as honest reviews from women who've tried them.

Here's how they stack up.

1. EyEnvy Eyelash and Eyebrow Conditioner, $100 to $200.

The details: Topping our list as one of the best eyelash growth serums in Australia, EyEnvy is a lash growth and conditioning serum with a HUGE cult following. 

The popular formula promises to enhance the length, size and density of your lashes in three months, with a combo of nourishing vitamins and peptides that target the lash hair follicles. 

Before you start looking for it online, though, it's important to note that you can't buy EyEnvy at major online retailers - if you hop on to their website you'll be able to find salon stockists around Australia. Generally, the price will vary between $100 and $200 for a 3.5ml tube. So yeah, it ain't cheap.

Emma says, "It's soooo good. I've been using it pretty solidly for about a year now. I think I saw the results after about two weeks." 

"I feel like I use way less mascara now as I just don't need it as much, so it feels really worth the extra money for what you save in mascara."

Kerry adds, "These are my lashes from EyEnvy!"

6. Grande Cosmetics GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum, $98.50.

The details: This vegan, cruelty-free formula contains an ingredient called prostaglandin, which sounds like gibberish but actually works by lengthening lashes and prolonging the anagen phase (active growth phase) of the hair follicles.

GrandeLASH-MD is well-known for seriously delivering on the results front - however, just be wary if you have sensitive eyes, as it's common to experience irritation with prostaglandin.

9. Qr8 MediSkin Lash Serum.

The details: Unlike most of the over-the-counter products above, Qr8's lash serum uses a prescription ingredient to stimulate lashes to enter the active growth (anagen) phase, and stay in that phase for longer. 

In studies, participants using this prescription ingredient showed improvement after four weeks of use, followed by further improvement at 16 weeks.

Qr8's formulations are customised and prescription-only (that's why there's no specific price or product images for this one!), so you'll need to book a consultation with a member of their medical team to have a chat about your lashes.

Liv says, "These are my results from Qr8 MediSkin! So happy."
