Eyelash Growth Serums Are Hot on TikTok, but Are They Effective, or Even Safe?

In one of the latest beauty trends circulating on TikTok, influencers, bloggers, and other beauty-obsessed users claim that over-the-counter eyelash serums are miraculously transforming their lashes. Sharing before-and-after imagery, they claim these products helped lengthen and thicken their lashes in weeks. People are taking notice: Searches for “lash growth serum” have racked up more than 2.4 billion views, and the hashtag #lashgrowthserum tops 2.4 million on the social media platform.

Some people are even making their own eyelash serums, using a combination of various oils, including avocado, almond, or castor, and applying the homemade mixture with a brush.

But are these eyelash growth serums legit and worth your money — or could they be causing undue harm?

“[Bimatoprost] is a prostaglandin analogue, which works by increasing the percentage of eyelashes in the growth phase, also known as the anagen phase of the hair cycle,” says Jeriel Weitz, DO, a board-certified dermatologist at Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City. The result: thicker, longer lashes.
