Castor oil- great for long and thick eyelashes!- Review

Hello ladies!


Today I would like to write to you about a great and cheap product, thanks to which my lashes become longer, thicker and dimmed. The hero of this post is castor oil, which is often overlooked for its benefits for the skin and hair. However, if you're looking for a cheap, natural remedy for several common skin and hair complaints, the castor oil is definitely worth the time. :)





Castor oil is an oil pressed from the seeds of castor oil. It is one of the most toxic substances of vegetable origin. The oil is cold pressed and boiled in water to helps break down the toxic toksalbumina, the presence of which in the seed makes their consumption can cause fatal poisoning.


Castor oil has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties and is high in Vitamin E, minerals, proteins, and Omega 6 and 9 beneficial fatty acids. It's unusually high ricinoleic acid ratio makes it beneficial to skin and hair. In fact, castor oil has been traditionally used topically for acne and other skin conditions, as well as hair loss, rashes and more.

I've only been using castor oil for my eyelashes and eyebrows, although it can also be used for face or on the hair. However, I do not use this oil to the hair (I use mustard and almond oils currently), because I fear that they may be more darker, and I want to keep it light blonde.

How and when to apply castor oil? So we want to apply our oil right where it will be the most efficient, or along our lash line. You can use an eyeliner brush for it, but I prefer to use my fingertips, kidding a little bit on the finger and gently rub into the eyebrows and eyelashes, that's all!!! But ladies, you need to be careful, cause you'd be risking applying to much of it. And when the oil gets into your eyes, it's not quite a nice feeling as some of you might be allergic to this oil. The best is to apply it in the evening after you removed your makeup and ready for bed.

When we will see the result? Some ladies claim to see the first result after only one week. But to tell you the truth, for me, it wasn't so that quick. I think it took me almost two months to get convinced that the treatment works on my lashes and eyebrows, and I still use it.

How to choose the right castor oil? Make sure that you purchase the correct type of castor oil. Check the label and stick with a 100% natural cold- pressed or cold- processed castor oil. On eBay is very wide range of castor oils, although I bought mine for £2.00 in Hindu shop to be sure that have a good one.




Overall the castor oil is great for thickening and regrowing the eyelashes and eyebrows.
Girls, if you do not want to spend lots of money on various eyelashes/eyebrows conditioners, and remember that they not always will work for us, then I highly recommend you use castor oil, which certainly will work. As I've mentioned before I use it for two months every day before going to sleep and the effects are clearly visible.


Hope you enjoyed reading and it will help you grow out lashes of your dreams :)
