Expert Answer

This is honestly not the first question we’ve gotten regarding using a natural oil to make your lashes grow. The great thing about these oils be it castor oil, almond oil, coconut oil and even this time, argan oil, is that they are all natural. Which, for a lot of us, means that it’s safe from all the harmful chemicals that most makeup products have nowadays.

Now before we answer your question, its best that we discuss argan oil, its characteristics and components, so that our readers who are not very familiar with it can be a tad be educated on the topic. So Argan oil is also known as Moroccan oil since it hails from the beautiful place of Morocco. It comes from; you got it, the argan tree. It contains both vitamin E and antioxidants, which are just all around well known for what they can do for our skin. The vitamin E provides* the moisture while the antioxidants fight free radicals that are just holding our lashes down. Another component worth mentioning is the fatty acids which is great for moisture retention.

Like most natural oils it is best to apply this before you sleep so the oil can work its magic* while you’re blissfully in dreamland. You can choose to apply this using a clean mascara wand, q-tips or even your clean fingers. What’s important is that you don’t put too much since a little goes a long way and since this is very lightweight oil. In the morning, remember to rinse the oils thoroughly since it can cause clogged pores and you know what clogged pores can get you, that’s right pimples!

Those that have used that have noticed the following improvements:

Most people have also found that having argan oil in your cupboard is beneficial to you since it can do so much more that put it on your lashes. It can also do stuff like.

  • Moisturize your skin
  • Remove* puffiness and dark circles from your under eye area
  • Grow out your eyebrows if you have waxed or plucked it wrong
  • Moisturizing your hands and your cuticles


So as what’s been already discussed argan oil is just an already joy to have a round and it’s a pretty great idea to use it on your lashes. I mean it costs less* than most eyelash enhancers on the market today. And this product is chemical free if you opt to buy for yourself a 100% natural and organic bottle of this stuff.

Now we would like to answer your question by saying Be Patient. Honey, Rome was not built in a day. You cannot expect to see dramatic results in a span of 2 days. Companies that produce* eyelash enhancers usually promise* that you will see results in 2 to 4 weeks. However, this is hardly the truth. Most reviews suggest that the use of eyelash enhancers involves a waiting game and may even reach up to 8 weeks of use with even a hint of results.

Your lashes have their own three-step cycle that they have to comply and you have to wait this process out. The best thing for you to do is to keep at it. A lot of women who use argan oil confess to get dramatic results in two weeks’ time. So what we’re saying here for the hundredth time is to BE PATIENT. Just wait it out. Don’t get tired of the routine until you get to see results. You will not be sorry. And in case it does ends up becoming a flop, hey at least argan oil has other uses so you can’t totally say it was a waste of money right?
