Aside from the obvious hair on our head, there's one thing we're always trying to grow: our lashes. Hey, who wouldn't want an impossibly long fairy tale type flutter?
We spend inordinate amounts on mascaras and lash torturing tools - or curlers as they're better known - in a bid to boost the length and thickness of each and every lash. So it makes sense to invest in a product that will actually amp up their growth.
Sure, we've heard of lash serums. The infamous Revitalash has reigned supreme for yonks, coming to our rescue when extensions have left us resembling a hairless cat. It really does work. Nightly applications will get those little lashes growing in approximately two months. The downside is the price and also (depending on your natural beauty stance) the chemicals.
So, imagine our joy and excitement when Kourtney Kardashian shared the secret to her thick and lengthy lashes. We know what you're thinking: it's extensions, duh. Think again. A recent post on Kourtney's website Poosh revealed that she owes it all to none other than natural castor oil.
While Kourtney's oil comes from American brand Cliganic, which isn't available in the UK, we scoured out England's equivalent just for you because we're nice like that.
Just like Kourt's fave, Pukka's Castor Oil, £9.95 is organic and cold pressed, so you can rest assured you're getting the same benefits.
How does it work? Castor oil is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids like omega-6 and ricinoleic acid, both of which help protect and nourish each lash. Apply every night before you go to sleep rather than in the day because it won't play ball with your mascara. It's also amazing for your brows, hair and any areas of dry skin.
BRB, just stocking up.
