Simply Naked Beauty fiber lash mascara with castor oil

Simply Naked Beauty, the makers of one of Amazon’s most-wanted mascaras, has created the eyelash product of our dreams — a fiber lash mascara that makes your lashes look crazy good and helps them grow at the time same.

The 3D Fiber Lash Enhancing Mascara, which has over 1,000 positive reviews on Amazon, is exactly the same as Simply Naked Beauty’s original super-thickening fiber mascara (which we raved about last month), with the addition of a well-known natural hair growth enhancer: castor oil.

“Castor oil is anti-inflammatory and has antibacterial properties, and because it has those awesome properties it is completely safe for the eye area. Castor oil is extremely moisturizing, can stimulate hair growth, nourish hair follicles, and deeply condition your hair,” dermatologist Debra Jaliman, MD previously told PEOPLE.

Simply Naked Beauty’s lash enhancing mascara comes with three tubes: a gold tube that contains the castor oil-infused mascara, a volumizing gel, and a fiber tube. While that might seem a little complicated, the set comes with step-by-step instructions, and it’s surprisingly easy to use. Just swipe on the nourishing mascara on first, then use the boosting gel, brush on the thickening fibers, and add one more layer of the gel to seal the fibers in. You can repeat as necessary until you get your desired look — users love that the product gives them the same effect as eyelash extensions or fake eyelashes, but with a lot less work involved.

“When I turned 50, I noticed my lashes were beginning to fall out. It had gotten to the point where I had obvious bald areas on both eyes. Horrified, I tried conditioning with every oil imaginable. Nothing worked. I decided to get a fiber lash kit and based on reviews I chose the Simply Naked Beauty Lash Science Gold kit,” one particularly enthusiastic shopper wrote. “THIS MASCARA HAS BEEN LIFE CHANGING!!! I immediately fell in love with this mascara! It went on beautifully, never clumping and it was truly waterproof. After about 3 weeks I started noticing my lashes were coming back, and after 4-5 weeks I noticed they were actually getting longer than I’ve ever had. The only thing I have done during this time is use this nourishing mascara. It alone has brought back my lashes and they are beautiful. I will NEVER use anything else – EVER.”

The mascara, which uses USDA-approved castor oil, is made from mostly natural (and non-toxic!) ingredients, including green tea microfibers. It’s hypoallergenic, waterproof, smudge-proof, and claims to make your eyelashes look up to “300 times their normal volume and length.”

Shoppers love using all three tubes for the maximum lash length and thickness, but say that even using the gold tube by itself is worth it for its conditioning results. “I love this mascara, it’s my absolute favorite without a doubt! Just the gold tube is totally worth the money, the other two are extra. I love the gold tube so much I would probably buy it separately because I use it the most,” wrote one reviewer. “It’s amazing because my eyelashes have never been longer or healthier. I have bought this mascara for some of my friends because I love it so much.”

So, forget that $100 eyelash serum you’ve been tempted to buy (yes, like the one Meghan Markle loves for her lashes) — this $22 mascara could just be the miracle product you’ve been searching for.
