There’s only so much even the best mascara can do. And if longer, healthier lashes are what you’re after, you’ll want to start with the root. Enter: Dr. Lara Devgan Platinum Long Lash Serum ($150). During quarantine, many turned to the serum in place of pro-grade eyelash extensions, and the results it delivered quickly catapulted it to “viral” status on TikTok. And based on the science behind it, there’s a clear reason why.

Nourishing ingredients like peptides and Vitamin B5 deliver a noticeable difference in lash length after only a few weeks of use. “Vitamin B5, also known as pantothenic acid, keeps your lashes thick and healthy while strengthening the hair follicles,” says Lucy Chen, MD, a board-certified dermatologist with Riverchase Dermatology, adding that forms of pantothenic acid are used in shampoos to aid in improving the condition of your hair. “The first change to be seen is usually eyelash length, followed by thickness and darkness in the lashes after continued use,” she adds. In a clinical study, after only thirty days of usage, 70% of users saw an increase in lash density. After sixty days of regular use, patients average a 45% increase in new lash growth. While it may take three to four months of regular application to see a full transformation, longtime users also report a drastic reduction in eyelash loss, which is reason enough to take the time (and money) to invest in the product.
Applying the lash serum morning and night is a great way to speed up results. Simply trace the wand across the root of your lashes (the product is safe for contact wearers) and move on with the rest of your a.m. and p.m. routines. It’s worth noting that with daily use, the package lasts for about two months, which is comparable to what you’d spend on a regular extension regimen.
As far as over-the-counter eyelash growth goes, there’s nothing quite as beloved (or TikTok famous) as Dr. Lara Devgan’s Platinum Long Lash Serum. Shop it for yourself, and get ready to kick your usual mascara to the curb. After all, you won’t need it anymore.
