Not too long ago, I wrote a feature for this blog suggesting all sorts of products to help enhance your lashes. I had requested GrandeLash-MD to include in that review, but didn’t receive it in time. http://www.advicesisters.com/uncategorized/how-to-enhance-your-eyelashes-for So I’m adding my thoughts on this product. I did not, and cannot, review anything long enough to really claim fantastic results. But there is no reason why GrandeLash-MD couldn’t work well.
Lashes are like any other part of your body. Environmental and other stresses, plus overuse of eyelash curlers and mascaras, can thin them out or damage them. But, like hair, lashes can benefit from nourishment. High quality eyelash conditioners provide essential that help lashes grow back stronger and sometimes, longer. Key ingredients hydrate and moisturize, so your lashes look healthy and shiny. Some lash enhancers provide ingredients that stimulate hair follicle growth. GrandeLash-MD was developed by a physician, but it’s not a prescription medicine. It’s a natural formula with ingredients such as Vitamin E to hydrate, Sodium Hyaluronate to help lashes retain moisture, Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans to support hair follicle health, Panthenol to moisturize, Chamomile extract to soothe, Ginseng to boost circulation, Palmitoyl-Hexapeptide 11 to improve shine, Palmitoyl-Pentapeptide 4 to strengthen, Bearberry Extract to calm, Grape Seed extract to prevent damage, Methylamido Dihydro to encourage growth, Noralfoprostal to reduce inflammation, and Vitamin C and A to help repair. That is a good cocktail of benefits, and the product is also paraben free. Since you don’t apply the product directly into your eye, you shouldn’t get color changes (as with Latisse) but you still have to be careful not to get it too close to your eye. And, if you are pregnant, breast feeding, or undergoing medical treatments, you shouldn’t use anything that can be absorbed through the skin. You can get a full listing of all the ingredients on the GrandeLash-MD web site.
These types of product do work, but a key thing to remember about any eye product is that if you put something close to your eye, especially along the line line (where all eyelash enhancers seem to be applied), you risk getting the product into your eyes. If your eyes are sensitive, you may find these products burning or irritating. And you need to be patient. For some, results will begin to show in about 3-4 weeks, but for others, the results may take 3-4 months. And monthly supplies of these special enhancers are not inexpensive. Although GrandeLASH-MD has an elegant, brushed gold tube, it costs $59.95 for a 4.5ml tube, which the website says will last you 5 months (used once a day — twice a day theoretically gives you better results). Most of these lash enhacers only give you enough for a few weeks at a time anyway, and since GrandeLash MD also comes with an impressive, 90-day money back guarantee (purchase on the web site), it seems like a good choice if you want to try a lash enhancer.
If you want your own, natural lashes to look lovely without having to resort to false lashes, fiber fillers, and tons of mascara, it’s worth a try. Visit the GrandeLash-MD web site to learn more and to purchase.
