I made up an eyelashes-related self-diagnosis. I am allergic to salons offering eyelash treatments until I can get over my previous bad experiences with them and I have money to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool to indulge in getting better eyelash treatments from better-known places. Right now, I am placing my faith in a cheaper alternative to do the job for me: a tube of RevitaLash Advanced. Yes, I still want gorgeous lashes.
Initially, this product contained a prostaglandin analogue comparable to bimatoprost, better known as the active ingredient in Latisse, which is said to increase eyelash growth. Due to patent infringement issues, the manufacturers now claim that eyelashes will be more beautiful and more nourished by using this product, which has a blend of calming botanicals and powerful peptides mixed with a secret combination of established functional cosmetic ingredients. Sounds… scientific. But frankly, I understand it to be no different to a typical mascara. Even the survey, which claims that 97% of users of this product who participated in the study saw remarkable improvements in their lashes after using this product for 3 weeks, doesn’t really convince me. Still, I decided to try it out and apply it at my upper eyelashes in the evening after reading numerous reviews and reports saying that it did really do wonders for them especially with the new formula.
Be informed, however, that some amount of attention is needed to understand the instructions. It states that one should “apply a thin line of RevitaLash to the base of your lashes, above the level of your skin” but the drawing makes it look like you should apply it as you would apply eyeliner. The brush confuses even more since it does look like something to be used with eyeliner. Note that the product should go on your lashes and not on your eyelids.
I noticed that it felt cold when I applied it but it was not of the uncomfortable kind. After using it for several days, I didn’t experience any adverse reaction or irritation to it. My lashes are still not long enough to produce wind to power windmills but I’ll be monitoring its effects by keeping a photo journal and measuring my lashes. Yes, that’s the lengths I would go to see if it does work as advertised.
I’ll be posting updates soon on how my relationship with RevitaLash Advanced will work out. And, did I mention that they also have something for the eyebrows called RevitaBrow? You might want to check it out before going out to get an eyebrow tattoo or an eyebrow transplant.
