It really scares me when I catch sight of falling eyebrow hairs and eye lashes. Also after reading about how drying lash and brow mascaras can be I went on a mad quest to find a CONDITIONING treatment for lashes and eye brows. Not a primer, rather a conditioner. Something I could wear at night.
The Talika Lipocils range is pricey and I was hesitant to spend that much so when wandering around Windsor House in Causeway Bay I spied a shop with the Zino Lash Builder I decided to look into it.
First thing I did was read the ingredient list. It did not have Alcohol. I also liked the fact that I can wear it at night and not just as a mascara primer.
Also it’s not very expensive, around HKD 198. So a purchase worth a try.
From what I gather from their website, Zino is a HK company and their 1998 launch product was the Eyelash Enhancing Serum.
Now this is the one I wanted to buy but did not because it didn’t have the ingredients in English. The shop assistant kept telling me “it’s has a discount” but nothing helpful about the ingredients. Pretty normal for HK shop assistants. I honestly know more than them!
Anyway I passed on the serum (sigh:() and bought the lash builder instead.
A lash builder is not what I am after, but hey!
It’s clear, obviously. Doesn’t feel crispy, in fact the lashes feel very soft. The liquid gave me a slight watering of the eyes. It’s the fragrance. Mildly ‘medicinal’.
Will report back in a month’s time.
