Review: Rimmel Lash Accelerator

Hello lovely ladies

I bought this mascara yesterday because well, I'm not really sure because I'm not feeling it's claims. Let's have a look at what this bad boy promises. .

A mascara and lash treatment in one that promotes natural lash growth for beautifully long and remarkably strong lashes - naturally.
Works both instantly and over time. Our advanced Ultra-lengthening formula delivers upto 80% longer instantly Used daily over 30 days, our innovative Grow-Lash complex promotes natural lash growth to create lashes that appear fuller, lusher and up to 117% longer. Clinically Tested. Containing Grow-Lash Complex known to have looking lashes
3 superior lash enhancing benefits:
1. STRENGTHENS - Helps minimise lash loss
2. NOURISHES - Supports lashes to grow strong & long 
3. RENEWS - Helps repair & restore lashes 

Yeah, maybe. Who thinks of this crap? 117% longer in 30 days? 117?!

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara - £8.99 (currently £2 off in Superdrug)

  I will be using this for the next 30 days and we'll see if my lashes really are lengthened by 117%. I actually can't get over the 117%. It's so ridiculous. 

First Impressions
Not too bad a mascara, nice consistency, does lengthen but doesn't really add volume. Easily layers without clumping, easy to use on bottom lashes. Works well with 17 Wild Curls/L'oreal Voluminous (although I didn't use these in the picture below)

Would I recommend it? Not sure yet.
Would I repurchase? Nope. It's not THAT great and I like volume more than length 

Have you seen this mascara? Think you'll try it?

Love Sophie xx 


  1. I went to Boots the other day to buy this, but they didn't have it :(


  2. Boots arent going to be selling it for a bit, I think superdrug got the head start! x

  3. You have such lovely looooong eyelashes already!!
    I'm interested to how this turns out tho, I'm always up for trying a new mascara, atm the No.7 Exceptional Definition is awesome, as is L'oreal millions...xx

  4. 117%? bit of a drastic percentage isn't it? love to know how it goes! x
