Castor Oil or Vaseline for eyelash growth. Y or N?

I've tried them both. The castor oil seemed to add thickness and strengthen my lashes.

I tried eyelash extensions and loved them--till I couldn't afford it anymore and was left with short, damaged lashes. I then started applying vaseline every night, which seemed to help them grow back quicker.

Have you girlies tried these?? What did you think?

    I tried both years was a big fad among my friends in the 1970's to put vaseline or castor oil on lashes every night and supposedly it would help them grow longer/stronger/better. Um...didn't do a thing.

    Latisse works really well though.
