Long, luscious lashes represent beauty, youth and femininity, and by using the best lash growth products, you can grow lashes like every woman dreams about. For the women who were not blessed with lashes to die for, there are many lash-enhancing products available today that help stimulate lash growth and promote a beautiful fringe.
Latisse is the only lash enhancement product on the market today that is approved by the FDA. Available by prescription only, Latisse’s main ingredient, bimatroprost, which is used to treat glaucoma, was discovered accidently when glaucoma patients reported eyelash growth as a side effect of their treatment. The pros associated with using Latisse are longer, darker, and thicker lashes. However, there have also been negative side effects associated with Latisse, such as eyelid skin darkening, eye color changes and itching, burning eyes. Yet, if long eyelashes are something you vie for, Latisse is one of the most trusted lash enhancing products to try.
Found in various salons and spas, Revitalash is an eyelash conditioner that claims to grow lashes in three to ten weeks. The main ingredient in Revitalash is not bimatroprost, however, it is still a prostaglandin-related analog that promotes hair growth. Yet, unlike Latisse, Revitalash is considered a cosmetic, not a drug. Longer and healthier lashes have been reported with the use of Revitalash.
Available online only, Lilash is said to be one of the more natural products on the market to enhance lash growth. Created by Cosmetic Alchemy, Lilash is a cocktail of botanicals combined with cutting edge technology. The purified formula restructures hair fibers and promotes healthy lash growth. Lilash darkens the lashes as well.
While luscious eyelashes certainly enhance a person’s looks, be aware that most of these lash-enhancing products come at a price (between $100- $160) and may cause you an allergic reaction or undesirable side effect. Shop wisely!
