When it comes to the cosmetics market, it can be very difficult for the buyer to select which products would best meet her beauty needs. Such a choice is crucial when it comes to eyelash growth products. It is not enough to buy an eyelash growth stimulant that will restore beauty to your deficient lashes; it should be safe enough to use so that you do not inadvertently damage your eyes and your sight. For this purpose, online reviews are very helpful in guiding you into making the right choice. This review focuses on Essential Lash.
What is Neova Advanced Essential Lash
The product’s full name is Neova Advanced Essential Lash. It is specially formulated as an eyelash growth enhancer. Neova, however, emphasized that their product should not be used on the lower lashes, citing the risk of the serum getting into the eyes and causing redness and irritation, even if it is formulated to be hypoallergenic.
Except for Avocado (Persea Gratissima) Oil Unsaponifiables, Essential Lash consists mainly of chemical compounds, which include Glyceryl Stearate, Stearic Acid, Sodium Behenoyl Lactylate, PPG-2 Myristyl Ether Propinate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Neopentyl Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Tridectyl Stearate, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, Tocopheryl Acetate, Allantoin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Cetyl Alcohol, Squalane, Prezatide Copper Acetate, Diazolidinyl Urea, Propylene Glycol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, and Purified Water. If you are concerned about carcinogenic parabens, you might want to steer clear of this product.
How to Use Essential Lash
According to the manufacturer’s instructions, application of Essential Lash is the same as most liquid eyeliners. First, wash your face and eye area with soap and water. Make sure that you remove all makeup, particularly eye cosmetics. Dry your eyelids. Apply a thin layer of the product along your upper eyelash line every evening.
Because Neova is a well-known cosmetics brand, many women tried out Essential Lash—despite its expensive price tag of $99. Unfortunately, the results proved rather disappointing. Most women did not see any changes at all in their lashes even after 8 weeks of use. Others chose to go beyond these 8 weeks and only noticed new growth of eyelashes between the 12th and 14th weeks, making it a slow-acting product. Aside from a lack of improvement in eyelash length, there are also no significant changes in terms of thickness, strength and fullness. In fairness to the product, however, there are a few reviewers who gave glowing testimonials of lash growth within 2 to 4 weeks, but again, these are just a handful of women.
Given the mixed reviews that Essential has garnered from women who have checked it out, I personally would not like to recommend it. If I were to tell friends and relatives about it, I would like to be assured that not only will it give the desired results, it will be worth the hard-earned money that they spend on it, considering that it costs $99.
If you are patient enough to wait for months for results to show, you can try Essential Lash, although I believe there are other much better products. But if you want to see results fast, give Idol Lash a try today instead. It’s also a lot cheaper!
