Revitalash advanced eyelash conditioner review

Revitalash Advanced Review

The RevitaLash Cosmetics company launched in 2006. The brand’s aim was to help women regain confidence and beauty by helping regrow and create thicker, fuller eyelashes. The company started with one product and has since expanded to bring consumers a full line of products meant to enhance natural beauty safely and effectively. The company is known for giving back, and finances compassionate causes, including breast cancer research. Created by a doctor, RevitaLash is meant to not only create beauty but to inspire women and refresh their spirits.

RevitaLash Products

If you’re looking for how to grow eyelashes, lengthen lashes, and reduce breakage, RevitaLash claims to produce results. RevitaLash Advanced is an eyelash growth serum and eyelash conditioner. The product nourishes lashes while improving the overall health of eyelashes. According to the brand, eyelashes will improve significantly, becoming shinier, stronger, longer, and hydrated.

It’s easy to apply using the included thin brush, similar to applying a liquid eyeliner. You simply apply the product to clean eyes on a daily basis for best results. Most users see results in roughly six weeks. Though this is the only eyelash growth serum the brand offers, RevitaLash has a line of products to create dramatic and beautiful eyes.

RevitaBrow has the same effect on eyebrows that RevitaLash does on lashes. It’s a conditioning treatment that adds moisture to brows to create shiny and healthy eyebrows. The clinically tested formula swipes onto brows using a doe foot applicator, and like RevitaLash, it works best if applied daily.

Before applying mascara, apply RevitaLash Volumizing Primer. This formula is said to condition lashes and prep them for mascara, creating a longer-lasting look while adding shine and volume to lashes. Finish your look off with Defining Liner, Volumizing Mascara, and Hi-Def Tinted Brow Gel.

RevitaLash Advanced Ingredients

RevitaLash prides itself on a unique formula. This formula contains peptides, green tea extract, biotin, lipids, and panthenol. Peptides are proteins created from amino acids. These are responsible for reversing the signs of aging as well as refreshing and restoring skin and hair. Peptides can also reduce hair loss. Biotin is good for hair growth, and lipids and panthenol offer hydration as well as thickening properties and the ability to repair breakage.

Green tea extract and other natural extracts work to prevent lashes from falling out and add strength to existing lashes. Vitamin B also boosts lash health. Plant extracts keep lashes growing as well as nourishes lashes. Conditioning ingredients improve lash shine by revitalizing lashes.

RevitaLash Advanced has been tested by ophthalmologists, and the formula is hypoallergenic, which means there is less irritation and it should be safe for users with sensitive skin and eyes. The formula isn’t tested on animals and it’s vegan, and you can use it safely if you wear contacts or eyelash extensions.

RevitaLash is free of parabens, phthalates, and BHT, meaning there aren’t any harmful preservatives in the product. Parabens can cause a host of issues, and some tests have found them to be linked to certain types of cancers, including breast cancers, so it’s best to opt for eyelash growth serums that are paraben-free for this reason.

Reported RevitaLash Side Effects

Though there haven’t been many severe side effects linked to RevitaLash or its line of products, there are some effects to look out for. These include eye irritation, swelling, or redness, along with some other things to consider, such as darkened skin around the eye area or weak, stiff eyelashes. A small percentage of users have reported change in eye color, or even blurred vision. Most side effects will reverse themselves once you discontinue the product. If you notice side effects that are becoming increasingly severe, stop using RevitaLash. Minor effects like redness or irritation may discontinue with use.

RevitaLash Reviews

Some RevitaLash users notice a difference in the length and volume of their lashes within a few weeks. Other consumers reported curly lashes that needed little mascara. With consistent, daily use, many RevitaLash purchasers have seen continued results that included long, full lashes; strong, healthy eyelashes, and strong eyelashes that don’t fall out. According to many users, the only downside to the product is the price, but one customer says it’s ‘cheaper than eyelash extensions,’ which makes it worth the cost.

Other women are often asked if they’re wearing ‘falsies’ due to the dramatic change in lash volume and length. While some users have reported slight eye irritation, side effects seem to be minimal, and the overall consensus is that RevitaLash does work with consistent and daily use. Customers mention the fact that their lashes seem shiny and ‘more moisturized’ as well as mentioning the ease of application of the product.

Some women have found that RevitaLash fills in bald spots where eyelashes have fallen out in the past. Others remark on the product’s ability to create somehow healthier lashes than they had before. The product is known as a ‘holy grail’ beauty product among its devoted fan base.

Health Risks of RevitaLash

Revitalash is a formula that when applied to the base of the eyelashes, claims to help grow thicker and darker eyelashes. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration has recalled and seized previous formulas, but the latest formula for the makeup has been approved. When using this product, you might notice some changes and side effects. Some of them are minor, while some can lead to major health risks. Apply carefully and see your doctor if you notice changes in your body, especially on or near your eyes.

Iris Pigment Color Change

Some women, especially those with lighter eye colors, like blue or gray said that the iris of their eyes became darker with use of the Revitalash. This health risk is likely nonreversible. However, according to the Revitalash website, the product should never touch the eye when used correctly and, therefore, this pigment change should not occur.

Brittle, Sparse Lashes

Many users report that Revitalash has the opposite effect on their eyelashes than they were hoping for: eyelashes become stiff and brittle and can break easily. This may be a health risk as well as a cosmetic risk: Eyelashes help to shield the eyes from sun rays and foreign particles, but brittle, broken eyelashes can not protect eyes effectively.

Skin Irritation

You may see that after application, the skin at the base of your eyelash becomes irritated. This is most likely an allergy to the formula, and its use should either be discontinued or applied in a way that none of the formula touches the skin. The Revitalash website recommends you not saturate the brush but rather wipe away excess formula before applying a very small amount to your eyelashes only.

Skin Discoloration

Revitalash users may notice a darkening of the skin around the base of the eyelashes 2. This is most likely because some of the formula is dripping from the brush onto the skin and giving it a darker pigmentation, much like the pigments it is adding to the eyelash. Remove the excess from the brush and take care to not touch the skin.

Blurred Vision

One of the reasons that previous formulas of Revitalash were not approved by the FDA was because they caused blurred vision in some subjects, due to damage done to the optic nerve. If you do find that your vision is blurry after using this product, discontinue use immediately. You may have gotten a hold of an older, nonapproved formulation of the product. See your ophthalmologist for a check-up.

With our lab test showing an impressive 14% increase in the length and 8% improvement in the volume, it’s no surprise that this topped our 2018 lash growth test! 80% of testers noticed an improvement in their lashes within 5-6 weeks with many commenting that their lashes were longer and even made their mascara look better! The product was easy to use with its thin applicator brush and it dried quickly upon application.

I’m reaching out today to all of the follically challenged in the land. i.e. those who struggle to grow hair past a certain length!! I too am one of those people, be it arm hair, leg hair, the hair on my head and of course eyelashes! Once those follicles reach a certain length, they just sort of give up the ghost, keel over and die!! Come on hair you can do better than that!!

Sometime this is a blessing of course, my waxing bill over the years has been significantly lower than others…. however for the hair that really matters – you know the stuff people see on a daily basis!! I’m basically left with stumps!! Stumpy eyelashes and stumpy mid length hair!!

To make matters worse, Stu, his two sisters and now Ettie are all blessed with amazingly long eyelashes, so long that they sweep their face in a graceful feather like motion when they blink! So it’s even more embarrassing that I’m now the only girl in the family with stumps.

I’ve tried eyelash extensions, strip lashes, cluster lashes… but nothing seems to work because I’ve got really deep set eyes, so they all just sort of sit there awkwardly like a dead fly on my eyelid!

I was recommended RevitaLash Advanced Lash Conditioner when I was 8 months pregnant, but it says on the packet that it isn’t recommended for anyone pregnant or breastfeeding so I had to wait patiently with my stumpy little eyelashes for 11 whole months!!!!! – In reality the wait wasn’t that bad as the Mums in Baby Sensory really couldn’t give two hoots about my eyelashes, we were all just happy to be there with our eyes open. But looking at the pretty packet sitting on my shelf knowing I couldn’t use it was still quite frustrating! when I was 8 months pregnant, but it says on the packet that it isn’t recommended for anyone pregnant or breastfeeding so I had to wait patiently with my stumpy little eyelashes for 11 whole months!!!!! – In reality the wait wasn’t that bad as the Mums in Baby Sensory really couldn’t give two hoots about my eyelashes, we were all just happy to be there with our eyes open.

Review

The product comes in a little bottle with a brush applicator wand which you apply to the top of your eyelash line once a day. Seems simple – however in my new mum, sleep deprived haze, I messed this up for the first month and applied the product directly to my lashes. I didn’t see any clear results for the first month so I’m not sure if it was because of my inability to read simple instructions, or because that’s how long it takes for the product to get working. But it wasn’t until month 2 that I noticed I actually had lashes that reached beyond my eyeliner line!

How it works

The RevitaLash Advanced Lash Conditioner formula works by increasing the length of your eyelash growth cycle by preventing them from falling out so they have the opportunity to grow longer. It’s not an eyelash conditioner, it’s biologically affecting your lashes and how long they can grow.

The Price

At upwards of £80 a bottle it isn’t cheap, but this sized bottle lasts for six months, so if you add up how much you’d usually spend on eyelash extensions, strip lashes and last perming treatments it might be worth it for you.

Did it Work?

Unfortunately I don’t have a ‘before’ shot to show you as I didn’t realise I would be writing about it three months later. But I’ll try to explain: My lashes were probably around the same length as a button on a phone, perhaps 6mm. You couldn’t really see the top of them above my eyeliner line, even if I curled them, and they all grew at wonky angles so eyelash extensions didn’t really work for me!

This is the aftershot after using RevitaLash Advanced Lash Conditioner for 9 weeks.

You can see that whilst they still aren’t amazing, they are definitely visible above my eyeliner line (I’m not wearing any in the pictures to make it clearer). To me this is massive as I actually feel confident wearing less make up, letting my fluttering lashes do all the work.

The Verdict

If it is a fuller, thicker false lash effect which you’re seeking, then I don’t think RevitaLash Advanced Lash Conditioner would work for you as I only noticed an improvement in the length of my lashes and they are still pretty thin.

However if all you desire is a simple enhancement to the more natural look, then I would definitely recommend this product. Whilst the initial outlay is a expensive (and I’m always skint!) I consider it an investment to prevent bad make up days when you’re face just isn’t playing ball! I’m so happy with my lashes now, I wear a lot less make up, just letting them do their thing. Plus I can recoup the money I would have spent on strip lashes!

I’ve been using my bottle for two months and there is probably around a months supply left. I’m not sure how long it will take for the effect to wear off once I stop using it, but I will be investing in it again as I can genuinely see a difference.

Update : I have edited this post to add this photo as I recently had my eyelashes permed and the beautician took this photograph which I think shows the length of my lashes better than the photos I took myself! These are my own lashes with no mascara, just eyelash tint.
