Keratonic Lash and Brow Serum

Keratonic Lash and Brow Serum Review

Ok if you follow my blogs you know how obsessed I am about lash serums by now right? My short stubby asian lashes don’t stand a chance with lash lifting without the help of these magical beauties that miraculously make little fine hairs longer!

 

THE EYENVY ALLERGY

Unfortunately, in 2019 after using Eyenvy on and off for 2 years I developed a severe allergy to Eyenvy. It started out with my eyes getting a little dry at first, but my lashes were growing sooo wildly long and fast I ignored the signs. First of all, my lashes started growing at hyper-speeds. So even though it was long, they would shed out so quickly that  I was needing a lash fill every week, and when I had a Triple Keratin Lash Lift, my lift would only last about 3-4 weeks before another lift was needed. 

Then the skin around my eyes started turning red, then purple, and my eyes were incredibly dry and itchy that I’d scratch off all my lash extensions at night from the itch. Eventually I pieced together this wasn’t caused by seasonal allergies and I stopped using Eyenvy altogether and my skin turned back to its normal colour and my lashes shrunk back to their puny lengths, like my heart 🙁

 

HELLO KERATONIC LASH AND BROW SERUM

I told the tale of my lash woes to my friend Michelle who owns a prestigious lash and brow studio in Calgary called Face Amor, and at the time she and her bestie (also named) Tammy were in development of a new lash and brow growth serum that included more natural ingredients. The serum didn’t have any chemicals in it that would trick your lashes into thinking it’s still in the anagen phase (lash lingo for “growth phase” of the lash cycle) so it was safe for lash lifting and wouldn’t make it grow out as fast.

I was super skeptical after the previous experience with Eyenvy but I tried it out for 2-3 months and though I didn’t notice anything right away, by the time I got my next Triple Keratin Lash Lift, my lashes definitely looked longer! It didn’t necessarily look fuller but definitely my dinky lashes looked longer.

HOW TO USE

From the Bottle:

  1. Thoroughly cleanse and dry skin prior to application
  2. Shake the bottle for 15 seconds.
  3. Remove excess product on the applicator brush by swiping both sides on inner rim of the bottle
  4. For EYES: Brush once along the upper base of the lash line as you would when applying eyeliner
  5. For BROWS: Brush along the base of the brow hairs from the front working you way to the tail.
  6. Let dry for 90 seconds before applying other products

 

PRECAUTIONS

  • Keep away from children
  • Avoid getting product directly in eyes (it stings a bit!)
  • Discontinue if irritation or redness persists
  • Not suitable for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, under the age of 18, undergoing chemotherapy, have an ocular disorder or are under the care of a physician
  • Discolouration of the eyelids may occur with excessive use (this didn’t happen to me thank goodness!)

 

BEFORE AND AFTER EFFECTS

Here is a side by side comparison of what my lashes looked 3 months previously looked like to after using the Keratonic Lash and Brow Serum:

Left Eye Before

Left Eye After

Right Eye Before

Right Eye After

You can definitely see that it looks like the lashes themselves appeared a little thicker, and the average overall length seems longer, especially on the right side where the longest length was about 8mm and now the longest length was 10mm!

It was hard to tell that the left eyelashes grew longer because it looked the same length on the ruler, but because the lashes were still curled in the after photos, they actually were longer but appeared the same length!

 

PRICE

$60CAD for a 3.5mL sized bottle 

I thought this was really well priced considering many other lash and brow serums are in the $70+ range for 2mL or less.

 

INGREDIENTS LIST

Purified water, hyaluronic acid, collagen, myristoyl pentapeptide-17, biotinoyl tripeptide-1, pentylene glycol, panthenol, biotin, panax ginseng extract, swertia japonica extract, pumpkin seed extract, calamus root extract, vitamin b7, serenoa serrulata fruit extract, oligopeptide-10, arginine, tocopherol acetate

DRAWBACKS

The only drawback with the Keratonic is that it does contain quite a few fruit extract oils so it is not lash extension-friendly and may contribute to poorer retention. This product is best for normal use or used in conjunction with lash lifting or brow lamination. It is also not advised for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

 

WHERE TO BUY

In store or online at Keravie Lash Loft with free shipping over $50 across Canada.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Overall, I’m really happy with the effects of this serum, especially considering I’m allergic to many others and would happily refer this product to others if you’re looking to grow your lashes longer without the risk of it over-growing. This is especially great for those who get lash lifts!

I would advise skipping this however if you are getting lash extensions just because it’s not extension-friendly.

Maintaining Your Lashes During a Pandemic

As we trudge through this pandemic, battling lockdown and isolations, it’s tough on our lashes. Though we can’t be there for you during closures, we’re still here! And this post is to help you get through this!

 

How to maintain your Lash Extensions during lockdowns 

These 3+week closures have been the most detrimental to your extensions, but here’s some tips on how you can do your best to maintain your extensions:

  1. Wash your lashes! But not too much! We all know that oils affect the lash adhesive, this is one of the reasons it’s important to wash your lashes. Excess build up of natural skin oils can cause your extensions to fall off prematurely. If you’re wearing eye makeup daily, then yes, wash it off your lashes. However, if you do not wear makeup daily, try washing your lashes every other day using an extension-safe foaming lash bath. Also get yourself a lash brush to ensure optimal deep cleaning!

  2. NO TOUCHY! Aside from washing and brushing your lashes, do not touch them! I know as they grow out more, playing with them can become irresistible, however dirt and oils also transfer from your hands onto your lashes, circling back to tip #1. Also, tugging on these can cause your natural lash to shed before they are ready. Resist that urge!! DO NOT TOUCH!
  1. Book a “New Set” for when we reopen. Even if you still may have some extensions on, booking a new set with your artist will ensure they have enough time to remove and grown out ones (which will likely be almost all of them) and then fill those lashes to the best of their ability!
  2. Try Lashocracy! Lashocracy is our glueless strip-lashes that are extension safe. If your extensions are not handling the lockdown well and you need a lash boost, these are a great fix till your lash fill! The fact that they are glueless makes them easy to apply and remove without damaging your lashes!

How To maintain your natural lashes during lockdowns

The tips above also protect your natural lashes while wearing extensions, however there’s more you can do:

  1. Get on the Eyenvy train! This forced break is a great time to boost your lashes, and get them growing longer and stronger! Eyenvy is an excellent ay to do so. This has to be used DAILY for optimal results. But start this routine A.S.A.P. and your natural lashes will be even longer and stronger, and even If your getting a New Set, or a Keratin Lash Lift when we reopen, this will be highly beneficial!
  2. Use your Keratin Mascara! (Not extension friendly). Whether you have a lift that is growing out, or has already completely grown out, continued use of this will help to maintain the strength and integrity of your lashes. If your lift is still growing out, this will really help to tame the sometimes wild grow-out stage, and also help your lift last longer through these lockdowns. If your lift has already grown out,

    using this daily will only give added nutrients to your lashes and prime them for your next lift when we reopen!

Paired with Eyenvy, this duo does wonders for your lashes, they really are a power-couple!

WET LASH LOOK: New Lash Extensions Style

THE WET LASH LOOK is one of the hottest lash extension styles trending on Instagram right now and you can get yours at Keravie Lash Loft – Edmonton’s top lash extension studio! 

SALE ALERT– Book your New Volume Set with @keraviebymegan to save $30 off this look using code WETLASHLOOK** until April 5!

(Reg. $190, Sale $160)

 

WHAT IT IS: This look mimics the look of your lash extensions when you get them wet; creating a spikier and more wispy effect. 

HOW WE CREATE IT: Using a bundle of ultra-light and ultra-fine volume lash extensions, we make straight to very narrow fans to apply to each of your individual lashes. 

Wet Lash Look Bundle in 0.03s

The Wet Lash Look appears similar to Classic Lash Extensions, but they are thicker and bolder looking because of the wider appearance of the lash bundles. 

We’ve been combining the Wet Lash Look with Strip Lash Mapping Styles by using varying shorter and longer lengths in a stylized pattern and we are loving the effects! 

BEST SUITED FOR: Natural lashes that are moderate to full. Generally speaking, we wouldn’t recommend this look for someone with sparse lashes since sparse lashes benefit most from volume fans that are fat and wide as opposed to skinny and straight like the style demanded from this look.
