Kellie76 here! Approximately two months ago I began my RevitaLash journey with curiosity, hope, and of course trepidation. I have to tell you that my skeptic radar was on high alert for this product. But for the greater good, i.e. all of you, I decided to find out, “Does it really work?”
For those of you who don’t know, RevitaLash Eyelash Conditioner was created by Dr. Michael Brinkenhoff for his wife who was recovering from breast cancer. This labor of love was designed to improve the quality of her lashes which were damaged from chemotherapy. Seldom do you find a product that was created with such good intentions. The company even does one better by donating a portion of their proceeds to breast cancer research and education.
According to the company, “RevitaLash is a unique eyelash conditioner that will help you achieve the natural beauty of Longer, Thicker, Fuller looking eyelashes. A very small amount of RevitaLash is applied once a day. No matter how brittle, short, fragile, thin, or sparse your eyelashes are, RevitaLash can help you achieve your very own long, beautiful, healthy looking lashes.”
I would like to make it clear that I have never had particularly sparse lashes. I would say that my lashes have always been normal or average. So I was not sure of what I could expect when I started this process almost two months ago. I have used this product faithfully every night during this time period. The directions suggest that you apply a very thin layer to your upper lash line. So being a somewhat good student I have only been using this on my upper lash line. But I also know that some people apply a layer to the lower lash line as well. I cannot stress enough to you all the importance of applying a very thin layer of the product. I experienced some mild irritation when I first started using the product. But I feel strongly that this was because I used too much. As soon as I started using less, the irritation subsided. A lighter hand will also extend the product to give you more bang for your buck!
I feel that I can say with certainty that this product does really work. But I think that just like anything on the market it works differently for different people. My theory is that because I started with fairly normal lashes I did not experience dramatic results. But I did have an overall positive experience with this product and would definitely purchase it if my lashes need a boost. I have experienced at least a minor increase in overall lash length. I feel that it is not incredibly visible in the photos mainly because the tips of my lashes are somewhat blonde. But the length increase is much more obvious when I wear a bit of mascara. I feel that the major fringe benefits that I have received from my RevitaLash usage are thicker, fuller, and stronger lashes. In my opinion I do show an increase in thickness and fullness. And I lose less random lashes now then I ever have.
Based on anecdotal accounts that I have read, many people experience results similar to my own, just as many people experience even far more dramatic results. It is also important to realize that any product can have side effects. RevitaLash is no exception to this rule. Some people will have side effects while others will not. I am typically very sensitive to products and often have reactions. But happily the only problem that I encountered with this product was from my own incorrect usage. This quickly subsided when I followed the directions and used the appropriate amount. I really recommend researching the product ingredients to make sure that you have no known allergies or objections to anything on the list.
The bottom line is that I especially recommend RevitaLash if you have skimpy or damaged lashes. This has the potential to really make a huge difference. The key is to stick with it over time and to closely follow directions. If you do this you may be very pleasantly surprised by the results. And if you are normally a drugstore deal kind of a gal don’t let the luxury price of this item necessarily deter you. When used correctly, one tube can last for 3-5 months, which could break down to under $1.00 a day. Ultimately, this is not a lot to pay for the immense pleasure of batting your eyelashes to get what you want!
