Today marks my own personal “Corona-versary”. For those of you who might not know what that is- it’s officially been about a year since I last stepped foot in my office at my full-time job or saw certain friends/family once the pandemic first began and mandatory lockdowns went into effect. What I think a lot of us expected to be just a few weeks of quarantine/isolation and minor inconvenience eventually turned into a few months of uncertainty and finally an entire year of lost time, missed events and milestones- and looking back at life pre-COVID-19 as compared to now is still a little mind-blowing.
While the world and nearly everything in it has changed in complex and profound ways these past twelve months- I’ve been able to somewhat successfully keep some traditions and routines alive and well in order to motivate myself and have a little bit of control in a time where everything seems to be out of control. I make sure to get some exercise in every day. I do my best to eat well and sleep enough so that my immune system remains in tip-top shape- and I stick to a nourishing skincare and hair care regimen so that I feel like I am looking my best (and therefore keeping my spirits high!)– even if I’m not going out in public anytime soon.
Of course, I’m always up for incorporating new things into that regimen that will give me phenomenal results- especially if it’s going to have me looking extra fabulous by the time I can ever go out and congregate in large groups again. That’s why I was so excited when Jolie Beauty announced the launch of their new vegan and cruelty-free eyelash serum– RidicuLash!
Since I’m not wearing much makeup these days (sorry, anyone who has been on Zoom with me recently!) using this deeply conditioning, lightweight and easy-to-apply serum day and night has been so easy. A couple of swipes of this quick-drying, non-sticky and biotin-loaded formula before work and then again before bed has made my lashes both look and feel stronger, longer, thicker and softer- and have helped them grow in a little more fully as the weeks go on!
I took a couple of photos during my first week of use, and then again as I recently wrapped up my third week for some comparison- and while the results are gradual and subtle- they are definitely noticeable!
I can’t wait to see how they look and feel by week six or seven! Pretty soon I won’t even have to wear mascara at all anymore.
You may remember that last month I also wrote about Jolie Beauty’s amazing false lashes, and just this past November I raved about their Bomb-Dot-Com Glitter Shadow palette. That’s because they are one of my favorite and most trusted beauty brands. Their products are high quality, are always made of the best ingredients- are affordable- and most importantly of all: give amazing and long-lasting results!
And RidicuLash is no exception to that! I’ve been loving how much better my eyelashes feel since I’ve started using the serum. It’s a wonderful and much-needed pick-me-up as I prepare to head into another chapter of the pandemic- and I highly recommend it to anyone who may need a little boost if they’re experiencing any brittleness or thinning with their lashes.
Use this regularly- and you’ll see results in no time at all!
