Eyelashes might seem like a small thing, but having long, healthy lashes can have a big impact on your appearance. Whether you’re tired of the hassle of extensions or want to combat any thinning as you age, Obagi Nu-Cil™ Eyelash Enhancing Serum is a topical treatment that can give you fuller, thicker lashes. At Park Meadows Aesthetics, we recommend this serum for its simple application and beautiful results.
Does Obagi Nu-Cil Work?
Obagi Nu-Cil Eyelash Enhancing Serum uses a combination of these four powerful ingredients to target eyelashes in their anagen (development) phase to nourish and promote growth:
- Biotin: A healthy hair-growth powerhouse that supports keratin production to increase fullness and thickness.
- Panthenol: A compound that hydrates and enhances shine.
- Sodium hyaluronate: A form of hyaluronic acid that provides moisture for voluminous-looking lashes.
- Proprietary liquid compound: A combination of eyelash-supporting ingredients that target hair in the growth phase.
In a 2021 16-week double-blinded study, 93% of participants reported their eyelashes showed visible improvement, with 89% saying their lashes looked thicker and more densely packed.
How Do You Use Obagi Nu-Cil Eyelash Enhancing Serum?
If you’re struggling with nitpicky adhesive extensions every morning or spend extra time removing stubborn mascara in the evening, this application process will be a breath of fresh air.
Each night after cleansing the skin, you can apply a thin layer of Obagi Nu-Cil Eyelash Enhancing Serum to the base of the upper lash line. After waiting ninety seconds for the product to dry completely, you can finish any other steps in your skincare routine.
How Long Does Obagi Eyelash Serum Last?
If applied daily, one tube of Obagi Nu-Cil lasts about two to three months. You can typically expect a noticeable increase in lash density after about 16 weeks.
To enjoy consistent results, you should continue to use the serum nightly. Because Nu-Cil targets eyelashes in their anagen phase, you might see increased thickness for several weeks after discontinuation. However, your lashes will eventually revert to your normal growth cycle.

Eyelash serums can be a great alternative to heavy makeup application or extensions.
