I was on Folica.com the other day and saw that Neova Advanced Essential Lash Eyelash Conditioner was on sale, so I thought I’d give it a try. This purchase was partially spurred on by my lashes being shockingly short and brittle that day – while into every lash line a short cycle must fall, I’m rarely as short as that. We’re talking so short that I had trouble threading my lashes into a curler. So lash conditioning product + short lashes + sale priced = let’s give it a try!
I immediately liked the formula. It has great conditioning agents – AHK Copper Peptide Complex, Panthenol, Lysine, Keratin, and plenty others. And unlike some lash conditioners that I’ve tried, it doesn’t cause irritation, which is great. Just apply the clear formula to the upper lash line at bedtime and you are set.
Now, the Neova writeup contains a disclaimer that the product does not promote the growth of lash hair. But is stands to reason that a conditioned, healthy follicle will produce a thicker lash hair for a longer period of time, so your lashes will probably gain length, and as I mentioned, Neova does it without irritation, which is a definite plus in my book.
In my somewhat unscientific study of the efficacy of the product in the past week, I can say with certainty that my lashes are longer and thicker than they were before I started using the product. Now, with past eyelash conditioners, I tend to get results far quicker than the package states is typical, so you may not have results as quick as I have, but Advanced Essential Lash definitely produces longer, fuller lashes with continued use. And while my lashes usually grow in all sorts of crazy directions, they seem to be growing in smooth and straight, not randomly pointed down or clumped together like normal.
The pic below was taken after four days of use. I wish I had taken a picture to show where I started when my lashes were really short, but I didn’t think that Advanced Essential Lash would work so quickly (and speed up my natural growth cycle as much). I’ll post pics as I continue usage in the next few weeks…and hopefully I’ll get better at taking a picture with my eyes closed or get someone else to do it for me so the pic is a little less fuzzy.

As a side note, I had applied Stream Cosmetics Foundation in F2 as my concealer on my undereyes. It’s a fairly dewy, bright look, isn’t it?
