Plus a look at RevitaLash’s mascara, primer & brow conditioner!
The original RevitaLash formula wowed our testers, both with its performance and the touching story behind its creation. If you missed the original review, here’s a recap: RevitaLash was developed by Ophthalmologist Dr. Michael Brinkenhoff after his wife Gayle’s breast cancer fight left her once-lush lashes fragile and thin. Inspired by Gayle’s recovery, Dr. Brinkenhoff set out to restore her lashes and we all benefited from his research with the launch of RevitaLash.
Now it’s time to welcome RevitaLash ADVANCED, a new, improved version of our favorite lash conditioner. Joining the latest formula is a range of equally exciting products designed to enhance the brows and lashes safely and effectively. The RevitaLash line is used and endorsed by a list of celebrities longer than my arm (or my lashes, come to think of it), and now that I’ve tried it, I understand why.
We’ll get to my review in a moment and take a look at some before and after photographic evidence of Stef’s lashes, but first let’s check out all four products the team received from the RevitaLash line:
RevitaLash Advanced ($98 – and on sale now at drugstore.com for $65) – the updated version of the company’s original product, contains a proprietary blend of ingredients, including peptides and botanicals, designed to both beautify and nourish the eyelashes. RevitaLash ADVANCED is both dermatologist and ophthalmologist reviewed, non-allergenic, and extremely effective in clinical studies. The scary possible side effect associated with the original formula (possible permanent darkening of the iris) has reportedly been eliminated with the new release.
RevitaBrow ($110) – this is a similar product to RevitaLash designed for use on the eyebrows. What’s worse than brows that have been damaged through overtweezing or waxing? Not much. RevitaBrow, with a formula that includes peptides, botanicals, and a Prostaglandin, is designed to strengthen, condition and nourish the eyebrows, leaving them fuller. One swipe of the applicator daily on a clean brow is all it takes for healthier looking brows within four to eight weeks.
RevitaLash Volumizing Mascara ($24) – this mascara has a clump-free formula for building thicker, fuller lashes. The brush is designed to separate and define the lashes for “an eye-popping finish.”
Perfect Primer ($24) – RevitaLash’s newest invention, this matte mascara primer comes in a blue hue designed to enhance and intensify both eye color and whatever shade of mascara you’re wearing. It also moisturizes eyelashes to help prevent breakage and provides a smooth base for mascara. It contains an anti-bacterial agent to keep the tube free of contaminants, and, like the mascara, comes with an specially designed brush that picks up every lash.
I tested RevitaLash ADVANCED and RevitaBrow. I started using both on the same day, and the results crept up on me in a sneaky kind of way. I was constantly checking for changes and not really seeing them. Then, about three weeks into testing, I was putting on mascara and noticed my lashes looked somehow better. I can’t say that I saw new growth, but my existing lashes definitely seemed thicker and longer. I also noticed I was losing fewer lashes, which made me very happy.
A few days later, as I was putting gel on my brows, they seemed more substantial – not that there was more hair, but that the hair I had was thicker, if that makes sense. My brows were already full and dark before I started testing, but RevitaBrow makes them look more abundant and well-groomed.
After a solid four weeks of use, my results for both lashes and brows are subtle but undeniable. Lashes look longer and thicker; brows appear more lush and healthy. I’m not sure how many more weeks of use I will get from each product, and these conditioners involve commitment; if I stop using them, the progress I’ve made will be reversed. But if you’re desperate for longer, fuller lashes, here’s your answer.
Not convinced? Let’s take a gander at wht co-founder Stef’s RevitaLash ADVANCED results!
Stef says that these images were “taken three months apart, with near daily use. I forgot to apply about once or twice per week.” Pretty impressive, no?
One Final Update: in the two months or so since I originally wrote this post, I have begun to see more length in both my lashes and brows. The lash growth is the most impressive thing. I feel like I’m wearing makeup even when I’m not, and I’m more confident without mascara then ever before in my adult life.
As for my brows, the individual hairs are thicker and I actually had to trim a few long, crazy strands that sprouted like weeds. Yes, this is powerful stuff and if you stick with the regime, you will see results!
