Unfortunately, not all women possess such lovely lashes, so they need to go the extra lengths to conceal their inadequacies with mascara, false eyelashes or eyelash extensions. Sadly, these measures are only good for the short term. Worse, they can cause further damage to the eyelashes, making them thinner and more brittle, thus making them very prone to breaking and/or falling out because of the added stress.
Over the years, there has been a surge of eyelash growth products that supposedly claim to make the lashes grow longer. These products come in the form of serums, ointments or gels. The first of these products to come out are prescription drugs. Prostaglandins, their derivatives and analogues were originally used to lower the elevated intraocular pressure in patients who are suffering from glaucoma. What the pharmaceutical companies did not expect with the use of these products is that one of the side effects is increased eyelash growth. Because of this, they reformulated these glaucoma drugs into eyelash growth preparations.
However, as more and more women started to use these products, disturbing side effects to the eyes were reported, ranging from eye irritation and eyelid discoloration to actual changes in eye color in women with blue or hazel eyes. This has prompted the U.S. FDA to crack down on products containing prostaglandin derivatives. At present, Latisse is the only prescription drug for eyelash growth, but there are some products that contain prostaglandin analogues which have escaped the FDA's scrutiny.
With this great concern for prescription drugs in eyelash growth products, cosmetics companies have decided to come up with products that do not contain prostaglandins. However, the results of these products have been relative mixed, with only a handful of them to show consistent positive results. One such product that has been the most consistent in producing the best results and has been earning rave reviews is Idol Lash.
If one were to base it on customer reviews, Idol Lash is, arguably, one of the best eyelash growth products today. It does not contain any prostaglandin derivatives. Its strength lies in its special formulation of polypeptides, proteins, vitamins, and natural deep conditioning herbal extracts. Not only does it stimulate eyelash growth, it also strengthens and conditions the lashes so that they become thicker and fuller and less prone to breaks or fallouts. Studies on Idol Lash have shown that the product is very effective among women between the ages of 24 and 82. One can expect significant changes in her lashes within 4 to 6 weeks of daily use, certainly a shorter time compared to other products that offer results within 6 to 8 weeks. Some women have reported changes as early as 2 weeks. Unlike other products, Idol Lash has not produced any side effects.
Such is the confidence that the manufacturer has in the product so that they offer a 90 day money back guarantee in case you are not satisfied with the results. They even have a special incentive if you buy two or more of the product. No other company offers such great deals.
