With a post like this, I really should do before and after shots but trust me on this, you wouldn’t want to see my face up close! But equally I’m going to ask you to trust me when I say that this is an amazing product that really works.*
Now usually if I had come across a product like this with such a hefty price tag (more about that later) I would have just walked on by. It’s the cynic in me! But because I witnessed its effects on someone first, I really wanted to give it a go.
Although my eyelashes are dark, I wasn’t blessed with long ones. Now whilst it’s obviously not the worst affliction in the world, I’ve always wanted longer lashes. And then, when I was having my make-up done by a make-up artist a couple of months ago, I commented on how fabulous her lashes were and I asked her if they were false. She told me that they weren’t, that her lashes used to be like mine and that she used Revitalash. And in my mind, the deal was done!
Now, at £65.95 this is by far and away one of the most outrageous purchases I’ve made but I’ve squared it off by trading in more expensive mascaras for cheaper ones for the next….ten years or so.
So as to how it to apply it. It comes with a very fine brush and you simply “paint” the product along your top lashes. And you have to be patient – very patient. At first the changes are imperceptible – just as they would be if you were measuring your hair growth. But then suddenly they look much longer and there’s more of them. And then with mascara they really come into their own.
I’m not sure when they reach their “optimum” length but I’ve been using this for about 6 weeks now and I’m definitely getting there.
As an alternative, I’ve recently come across this No 7 Lash Impact Lash Serum (£16) and the reviews for it are really good too. I will definitely be investigating it in the future.
This product seems to be great for people whose eyelashes are thinning due to the menopause, or which have suffered due to having false eyelashes, or if the lashes have fallen out through stress. Or if you just fancy a little va-va-voom in the lash department.
*I should just mention that although the product has worked for me and I’ve never had any problem with it, I do think that it’s worth doing your research and reading the reviews before buying – just in case you decide that it’s not for you. I would love to hear from anyone who is a long term user, who has used different brands and what they think of each, or from people who hated it!
