ActivLash Overview

ActivLash is an eyelash growth system that promises to produce longer, fuller and thicker eyelashes within weeks. The official website for the ActivLash brand is very impressive and user-friendly, being easy to navigate with clearly headed sections.

Although there are no clinical studies shown to prove that ActivLash works, the company does claim that it was developed by a team of physicians, chemists and aestheticians and has undergone ‘scientific studies’. The product has also been tested for safety in terms of potential skin irritation, particularly important when it is to be used around the eye area. However, it is said to cause a tingling sensation when applied. ActivLash is also supposed to be the only product of its kind not to cause blurry vision or darkening of the iris, although there is no evidence to back this up.

The website shows a few very brief customer testimonials and there are two ‘before and after’ shots which appear to be of genuine customers. No FAQ section is included but the product does seem as though it is easy to apply and can be used not only on the top and bottom row of eyelashes but the eyebrows too.

ActivLash – Product Description

ActivLash

Like similar eyelash conditioning products, ActivLash is contained in a mascara-like tube and applied to the baseline of the lashes, like a liquid eyeliner. It is to be applied twice a day, morning and evening and because it is a clear serum, once dry, the consumer can apply their regular make-up.
The full list of ingredients is featured on the ActivLash website and the benefits of the key, active ingredients are explained. A blend of anti-oxidants, vitamins and herbal extracts, ActivLash works on a number of different levels. Swertia herb extract and glycoprotein both increase the blood flow to stimulate the hair follicles, green tea and grape seed extracts use anti-oxidant properties to fight damaging free-radicals, bilberry conditions and nourishes and a vitamin and flavanoid complex helps slow the aging process which may cause brittle and dry lashes.

ActivLash contains no parabens or fragrances, but it is still a good idea to test the serum on a patch of skin before using, in case of allergic reactions.

ActivLash – The Bottom line

Nothing about the ActivLash eyelash growth serum particularly makes it stand out from the other similar products on the market apart from the fact that it does contain some powerful anti-oxidants in the formula. Price-wise, it fairly expensive, costing $129.00 for a supply that is supposed to last at 4 months. Even so, most consumers would want to see more proof of positive results before spending this amount of money, and until ActivLash can provide that, they may be wise to purchase a more reputable brand.

There are quite a few eyelash enhancing products on the market today, many of which appear to be capable of providing a few key benefits. Specifically, in addition to providing improvements in eyelash length, volume, and texture, an eyelash enhancer should also contain only quality ingredients. Furthermore, these ingredients must be able to nourish lashes so that they stay well conditioned and strengthened against premature breakage. Because of the importance of these characteristics of an ideal eyelash enhancer, along with the large number of eyelash products sold today, we've listed several of the top eyelash enhancers below.
