There was a time when the cosmetics industry was largely dominated by American, British and French companies.
In recent decades, however, these three stalwarts have been finding serious competition from Asian cosmetic manufacturers. I want to mention now here, FEG Eyelash Enhancer.
Personally, I don’t have any problems with Asian-made cosmetics, except for the ones from China which reportedly have lead in them.
However, what disappoints me about these Asian products, eyelash growth products in particular, is that I do not see any complete list of ingredients.
Having very sensitive skin and eyes, I would prefer to know in advance if a product contains any substances that I’m allergic to. This is the case with FEG Eyelash Enhancer Growth Liquid/Serum.
What is FEG Eyelash Enhancer
FEG Eyelash Enhancer Growth Liquid/Serum is being manufactured in Yunnan, Mainland China. It is being advertised as a cheap, but effective eyelash growth mascara, wherein the user can expect to see longer, darker and fuller lashes in just 7 days.
FEG Eyelash Enhancer Ingredients
What is known about the product is that it contains a unique eyelash growth factor developed from “micro-molecule disposing technology”.
It is this growth factor that promotes both new and existing lashes to grow longer.
Some of the botanicals also serve as conditioners to help nourish the eyelashes.
According to the product ad, these botanicals have been specially formulated so that they are easily absorbed by the hair follicles, thus promoting both growth and nutrition of the lashes.
How to Use
How do you apply the product? Dip the supplied brush into the vial and then spread the serum to the eyelashes, starting from the roots going to the tips.
For faster results, it is best to use the product every morning and evening. It is estimated that new eyelash growth can be seen as early as 7 days as well as a slight increase in thickness and a darkening in color.
By the 16th week of regular application, the product is at full effect and more lash growth is to be expected.
To sustain this effect, it is advised to continue using the product beyond 16 weeks. Irregular application between the 1st and 16th weeks may lead to your lashes reverting back to their previous state.
Judging from the reviews that have been posted in Amazon and other distributor sites on Ebay and Alibaba, many women have given FEG Eyelash Enhancer Growth Serum two thumbs up.
These women have reported seeing new eyelash growth and lash thickening within the prescribed first week of daily use.
One woman used the product as a replacement for Latisse, and she was very happy to report that FEG worked better for her than the former (which is an expensive, prescribed treatment owing to its prostaglandin content).
There were some women though who reported that it took time for the product to work on them.
The more common time frame for these women is between 1 to 2 months, which may seem like a long time for those who want quick results. Others did not see any changes in their eyelashes at all.
Cost FEG Eyelash Enhancer
With a price tag of $25, FEG Eyelash Enhancer Growth Liquid/Serum is within the reach of everyone’s wallet. However, I still would recommend that you perform a skin sensitivity test first prior to use, especially if you have known allergies to certain cosmetics ingredients.
Review No. 2
Anyone who has cancer will tell you that it’s very difficult to look for a product that delivers on its promise of hair and/or eyelash growth. I’ve been undergoing chemo for the past four months.
Both my hair and eyelashes have fallen out and my eyebrows are thin and wispy…until I was referred by a friend in my support group FEG Eyelash Enhancer.
Unlike in Amazon US, the product description in Amazon UK is more complete, not to mention very honest.
According to the description, FEG Eyelash Enhancer works by activating dormant hair follicle germ tissue in order to induce rapid eyelash growth.
The manufacturer guarantees that you will have longer, thicker and naturally darker eyelashes in 20 days. You can use it on your eyebrows too.
How do you use this product? You apply it directly to the skin of the upper eyelid margin, specifically at the base of the eyelashes, using the sterile applicators that come with the product.
If any excess solution goes beyond the eyelid margin, you should blot it off. It is not to be applied to your lower eyelids or directly in your eyes. If you wear contact lenses, you should remove them first and then reinsert 15 minutes after application.
This is where honesty comes in. The manufacturer says that you don’t need to put more of the product because it will not increase eyelash growth.
If you discontinue application of the product, it will return to pre-treatment levels, but you can maintain the eyelash length that you have attained by using FEG Eyelash Enhancer twice a week.
FEG Eyelash Enhancer Ingredients
FEG Eyelash Enhancer contains only a few synthetic ingredients. There are no natural ingredients in the product.
Among the ingredients are benzalkonium chloride (which acts as an antioxidant and preservative), citric acid, purified water, sodium chloride, disodium phosphate and cellulose gum.
Now, you’re probably wondering if I used it and did it work. Well…I can say for certain that I’m glad that my friend recommended it to me because IT WORKED BEAUTIFULLY!
During the first two weeks, the most noticeable change is that my eyelashes were stronger and thicker, definitely holding up pretty well against the ravaging effects of chemo.
By the third week, I noticed tiny lashes growing at the upper eyelid margins. By one month, my eyelashes were restored. It also worked on my eyebrows. They are now as full and thick as they were before. It was true what the manufacturer said though.
When I ran out of the product, I noticed my eyelashes going back to their original state.
Thankfully, FEG Eyelash Enhancer is affordable at just $15.99 in Amazon. I opted to go for the cheaper 3X FEG Eyelash Enhancer promo. That’s three eyelash products for a lower price.
Just to make sure that I keep both by eyelashes and eyebrows, I firmly intend on using FEG Eyelash Enhancer for the entire duration of my chemo. I might even use it after my treatments are done. That’s how much I love this product!
