Longer, fuller lashes have the ability to transform your eyes, making you look more alert and awake instantly—but few of us are blessed with these bat-worthy lashes naturally. While a few swipes of mascara can help, Dermelect has another solution that won't require waking up early to apply makeup. The XL Lash Volumizer serum helps to strengthen, lengthen, and boost lashes so you always look like you're wearing your falsies, shoppers say. 

The formula's secret sauce is three different kinds of peptides that work together to condition and moisturize the hair follicles, which helps to promote growth. The triple-peptide serum is especially great for nourishing dry, brittle, and sparse lashes, and it also works well on over-plucked brows.

The serum is mess-free and housed in a convenient mascara tube for easy and precise application. While the directions recommend applying the serum to brows and lashes nightly, the lightweight formula is also gentle enough to be used under mascara in the morning and on top of false lashes. Users on the Dermelect site say they're so impressed with the results that after just a few weeks of use, they've ditched micro-blading, lash extensions, and even makeup altogether. Some have dubbed it a "holy grail" find that works fast—and at $49, it's much less than prescription alternatives.

"I am so impressed, it really works. My lashes feel like if I used an eyelash curler. Will definitely buy it again," wrote one five-star reviewer, while another said: "I could see my lashes getting darker and looking fuller after a week."

A third wrote: "I have used [this serum] for a little while and my eyelashes look so long. Even without mascara, they're standing out more than ever. Every time I catch a glimpse in the mirror I notice them. It's really amazing! I love this product!"

The non-irritating, oil-free formula is also free of gluten, phthalates, and sulfates, and according to the brand, it's vegan-friendly and never tested on animals. 

Nourish, lengthen, and volumize your lashes and eyebrows quickly with the help of the XL Lash Volumizer serum. Shop it for $49 for a .24-ounce tube at Dermelect now.
