Fancy longer lashes? A review of M2 Lashes by M2 Beaute

by Katie on November 23, 2010

A few months ago, I was tempted to a lunch meeting at La Durree, Harrods by the ever lovely beauty PR. At this stage, I thought, so far, so macaroons and champagne. The added bonus treat would be the gleaning of information about a new rave beauty product which I was promised and one can also do with new rave products in one’s life.

I was introduced to M2 Lashes by M2 Beaute, a company founded by Marci Marek and her business partner (Elke Moysies) in Germany to answer the call for serious luxury lash growth through premium, well tested and researched product. This revolutionary and luxurious M2 Lashes Eyelash Activating Serum increases the length, thickness and strength of your eyelashes dramatically.

Now why should this be any different from the current slew of lash growth enhancers on the market? Because it works, dear readers, and leaves hardly a trace of knowing that you’ve actually applied the product. That’s not to say that the others don’t. But from people ‘in the know’ you hear both good and bad. Bloggers dish the dirt. And, to tell you the truth, I’ve always been a trite ‘scary mary’ re things applied around my eyes. I can’t even bear to have mascara applied by a professional make-up artist lest they miss and poke my eye out. Plus, I am a lazy cow. Least number of beauty routines required evah is one of my aims. Up there with a massive engagement rock, a Chanel 2.55 and some serious Valentino. I have enough to do with the bathing, the day/night cream, the serum, the fine line reducing eye product etc. Need I go on? It’s tough being a beauty junkie with an aversion to time spent on application.

M2 Lashes though is a simpler affair. Marci gave me a top tip so I shall pass this on: keep the lash enhancer on your shelf by the sink so you remember to actually use, and apply as a fine eyeliner stroke every evening. Hells bells, even I can manage a stroke. (I really should re-word that but you get my drift). So for the past 9 weeks or so, I have been dutifully applying only forgetting when too *ahem* merry and/or forgetful of an evening and there have been a few but mostly, I have applied the two tubes. One after the other. One as the serum to enhance lash growth and the other as a ‘gloss’ conditioning treatment, stroked on the lashes. One vial contains enough serum to last a minimum of 4 months of recommended use. I’ve been promised that maximum results are still to be achieved, by week 16.

And boy, have my eyelashes grown! I almost can’t believe it. It’s when applying mascara that I really notice the increased length, texture and thickness. When applied daily, the M2 lashes serum makes lashes longer, thicker and stronger, but also makes them noticeably naturally curl slightly, limiting the need for mascara application. But hey, I love my mascara and the two combined have given me eyelashes to rival falsies.

The key active ingredient in all this is a complex MDN, a prostaglandin derivative, which in an alternative form is used in ophthalmology. This modified and carefully dosed ingredient compound stimulates eyelashes at their roots to increase the number of lashes whilst extending the growth phase and delaying lash loss.

Additional Beneficial Components include:

• Panthenol (Vitamin B5) dispenses moisture and promotes shine

• Biotin (Vitamin B7) strengthens lashes and restricts the cycle of lash loss

• Hyaluronic acid keeps the lashes moisturised and healthy

• Prodew 300 absorbs and retains moisture

• Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans (GAG) retains moisture and provides the lashes with more elasticity and strength

And, in keeping with the M2BEAUTÉ philosophy, M2LASHES contains only ingredients that have been scientifically proven to be safe and effective. The products are hypoallergenic and suitable for contact lens wearers.

If you fancy splashing out, I’d definitely recommend this product. *bats lashes*
