Today (19th January) QVC have a Today's Special Value on REVITALASH

(12 Posts)

I don't work for QVC by the way wink

I possess the Worst Eyelashes in the World and my eyebrows aren't far behind (though that's my fault due to heavy handedness as a teen/20s)

The offer is Revitalash eyelash treatment + eyebrow treatment+ a mascara primer+ curlers.

I don't wear mascara every day. I'd like to have halfway decent eyelashes.
My eyebrows need a load of pencil fill-in. I've tried dyeing them but it emphasises how short and weedey they are.

So:
I've got 30 days to try it. (I can get a refund in that time) It might take more than 30 days to get a result.
I'm going to take a photo of my eyes before I start, then every 2 weeks to check progress.

Has anyone used this?
If anyone has and didn't get the result they were promised- did you use it every day?

I used the rivitalash and got great results. Someone has posted on the qvc Facebook page that there are some dodgy ingredients in it though. Makes me a bit wary.

Agree it is a fab deal though!

Oh what sort of dodgy ingredients? (Worried now)

I've been using it since July, and it has filled in the gaps in my lash line and made them a lot longer (and they don't shed as much). I now use it every other night to maintain, and have experienced no side effects (and I have sensitive eyes and wear lenses too). I found it took 3 weeks of daily night time use to notice any change. I got it in a TSV too with their mascara (which was crap), and am now experimenting on my brows! Don't know how much it is, but you might be better off just getting the lash conditioner instead?

She said it was something to do with the main ingredient being the same ingredient as is used in eye drops for glaucoma. The girl said it made her eyelashes grow in random directions, all sticking out etc.

Not trying to scare you as I was going to buy the TSV until I read this!

Some of mine do point in odd directions at times, but nothing a quick squeeze with a lash curler and slick of mascara doesn't sort out! I know some lash serums can cause darkening of hair and skin, but as I have dark skin and black lashes I've not experienced any of these.

OP - massaging castor oil into eyebrows helps hair growth (according to my threading lady)

Oooh I don't fancy castor oil on my eyes, I don't even like oily eyemake-up remover .(Thankfully I don't wear mascara often, I use the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish on my eyes for make-up days)

I can cope with random direction eyelashes- just as long as they grow grin. Like Moo said I can use the curlers and my hair is dark (which is why my eyebrows look so silly if I dye them)

The inventor is an Opthamologist (I'm presuming USA) apparently. Invented it for his DW .

I'm going to try it when it arrives (bought on EasyPay) . Wish me luck, I'm going in grin

As I understand, the drug was invented for glaucoma and people found out a beneficial side effect was the lash growth. This is quite common for lots of pharmaceuticals. Not tried it myself though

I thought the glaucoma thing was related to the 'Rapidlash' serum? Don't think Revitalash has the same ingredients, but could be wrong!

I got my parcel yesterday.
I started using it last night.
Took some Before pictures of my woeful brows & lashes on DD iPod.

I'm waiting for results. Will re-photo in 4 weeks and maybe post them if there's an improvement.

I don't know if they are talking about the same product as they couldn't name it for legal reasons. However, it might be worth reading this article from last Sunday's You magazine:
Is lash enhancer safe to use?
