Tea Time Vol. 4 | Does Vaseline Really Help Your Lashes Grow?


Hello, gorgeousness! Let's be real, I can't be the only person who has ever seen tips and tricks of how you can grow your lashes with Vaseline. Story of my life, I have the saddest, thinnest and sparse lashes growing up. They're barely visible to the human eye. Maybe that's due to my bad habit - I love to pluck my eyelashes every day and I think I've plucked out too many. And with only 10 lashes, to begin with, I made it worse.

It's apparently dangerous, folks. Plucking out too many eyelashes may cause your eyes serious injuries and just overall hygiene. If you have the same habit like me, please stop doing it. I've stopped plucking my lashes many moons ago although sometimes I still do it unconsciously. It's a hard habit to break. But I've stopped completely, I promise. I don't want to damage my lashes no more.

So there goes me googling tips and tricks on how to make your lashes grow longer and thicker.

I have seen a gazillion tips and tricks using Vaseline to grow your lashes. Imagine how intrigued I am. I'm just rooting for Vaseline to be awesome and save me a few bucks. With that being said, I also dug deeper just to see if it really works and what are the pros and cons. Is it just a myth or is there a science behind it?

Turns out, Vaseline can help condition your lashes and moisturize them, but Vaseline cannot grow your eyelashes. The sad truth, I know. Using Vaseline to help your lashes grow longer and thicker is a myth. It's hard for me to believe because I really want it to work. It's fast and easy.

But hold your horses.

Although it's just a myth, I'm going to show you if it really works or the other way around. Yes, I'm going to be one of those lab rats. I've been putting Vaseline on my lashes for a week now and I decided to track my progress in the hopes of maybe it does work. I will be placing pictures as evidence and you will be able to see for yourself. If it works, great. If it doesn't, I don't lose anything. So yeah, I will be documenting my eyelash growth diary(?) or something on my blog but allow me some time to do it for let's say 3 weeks and by the end of it, we will see if it does work.

I'm excited and I hope you guys are excited too!

    1. lots of dermatologists been saying it's a myth. vaseline is only great for nourishing and moisturizing the lashes/ brows. our brows and lashes do grow naturally each day and with the help of vaseline perhaps the reflection of light resulting in shinier/ thicker coat that makes us think it's a success? i don't know. i hope to see some good news hehe xx
