Will an Eyelash Conditioner Give Me Longer Fuller Eyelashes?
Eyelash conditioner, eyelash dying and eyelash extensions, are products with rapidly increasing popularity among consumers. Long full eyelashes brighten the face and make you look more alive . . . who doesn’t want that?
“Eyelash Conditioners Help for Tired Eyelashes”Recently, a reader asked: Can an eyelash conditioner, that sells for $150.00 really make my eyelashes grow fuller and longer?
Top sellers of the eyelash conditioner in more than 7000 salons and spas nationwide include, Marini Lash Eyelash Conditioner , and RevitaLash Eyelash Conditioner and Latisse which is a relatively new prescription to help eyelashes that are thin and weak to grow stronger and longer.
Jan Marini pioneered the eyelash conditioner and others have picked up her lead ever since. She has produce both Marini Eyelash Conditioner and the new Marini Mascara with Conditioners. RevitaLash was developed by an ophthalmologist who wanted a safe alternative for women who needed help with thinning eyelashes. The developer’s wife’s eyelashes were emaciated from chemotherapy treatments and he wanted to create something that would help her with her self-esteem. The Brooke Shields promoted Latisse is an FDA-approved prescription treatment and the only one classified as a drug. FDA’s position is if you make a claim regarding eyelash growth, you are making a drug claim.
The FDA requires that companies with cosmetic products can only advertise that the product can make eyelashes appear longer and fuller instead of guaranteeing results. So how does Marini Eyelash Conditioner weigh in on that? Here’s part of their product description;
Marini Eyelash Conditioner features a proprietary peptide blend which when combined with other essential factors produces extraordinary eyelash and brow enhancement.
Extraordinary eyelash & brow enhancement delivers gorgeous, dense & lush eyelashes
Next-generation non-prostaglandin technology dermatologist and opthamologist safety tested.
*Marini Lash Eyelash Conditioner is not intended to stop, prevent, cure, relieve, reverse or reduce eyelash or eyebrow loss or to promote the growth of eyelashes or eyebrows.
Like the hair on your head, eyelashes have a defined life cycle. Eyelashes fall out and replenish every 42 days or so in general, but as we age they don’t replenish as they once did. When used regularly an eyelash growth conditioner claims that it will fortify existing eyelashes so they don’t fall out as easily and grow back healthier. Although the results are substantial, they are not permanent. “No eyelash growth conditioner can change your genetics, so results will begin to diminish when the product is not used” Marini says.
Celebrities like Hayden Panettiere, Fergie ,Jessica Simpson and older celebrities like Helen Mirren and the cast of Desperate Housewives use an eyelash growth conditioner. “Makeup artists are continually stressing eyelashes with the use of glues and eyelash extensions,” Marini says. “This can lead to dry brittle and even sparse and missing eyelashes.” Marini said her eyelash conditioner gives the makeup artist a tool that overcomes these challenges. “Many of our celebrity makeup artists report they have to do little if anything to enhance the users’ eyelashes because they become so noticeably enhanced.”
I’ve tried glue on my eyelashes as a teen years ago and once was enough. But, I am at the age where I seem to have only a fraction of the eyelash growth I once sported. I am going to try Jan Marini’s Eyelash Conditioner and will report back what I’ve found to be true for me. A .23 oz. mascara-style tube with an eyeliner brush lasts about six months.
