Garden Botanika Lash Primer
Lash Primer?! That was what went through my head over and over again when I opened my Influenster Holiday VoxBox 2011. Nestled in between various products I’ve never tired is the Garden Botanika Lash Primer. I have never really thought about having to use this product, so this is the perfect opportunity for me to try it out.
The Influenster insert boasts about this product: “Take lashes from fine to fabulous. Simply brush on bare lashes, let dry, then apply mascara. Lengthens and thickens lashes; conditions them so they’re healthier, too. Small brush simplifies application. Use with our application.”
Verdict? I was initially excited about trying this product. The first try didn’t go too well. I applied the lash primer as instructed on the box packaging. Directions stated: “Brush over lashes from base to tips. Allow to dry. For thicker, longer lashes, apply a second coat. Follow with mascara.” I’m pretty sure my mistake was I applied 2 coats of mascara after that instead of just one. It clumped up my lashes quite a bit. Even then though, I can tell that the lash primer did lengthen and thicken my lashes. The second time around was much better. I used only one coat of mascara after 2 coats of lash primer. There is no flaking at all. A relatively good product overall.
The full-sized packet of 0.19 oz retails for $11 and is available at www.gardenbotanika.com, where you can also check out what the other products they have!
