WHAT IS VIRGIN LASH GROWTH SERUM
Virgin Lash Growth Serum is like any other eyelash growth product in the market today – enticing the unwary consumer of longer, thicker and stronger lashes, a promise that has been heard many times, but which very are capable of delivering.
And, yet surprisingly, based on positive reviews, this little serum is capable of doing what it promises.
VIRGIN LASH GROWTH SERUM REVIEW
A review of the ingredients list reveals nothing new. Except for the 3% Adenosine Triphosphate(ATP) Growth Stimulator/ Follicle Dilator, the ingredients of Virgin Lash are essentially the same ingredients that you find in other eyelash serums.
Among the natural ingredients are Castor Ricinus extract, Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, and Borago Officinalis Seed Oil.
It also contains vitamins compounds, like Retinyl Palmitate and Ascorbyl Palmitate. The other chemical compounds in the product are Dimethicone, Panthenol Oil, Mineral Oil, Stearic Acid, , Glycerin, Glycol Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetyl Acetate, Acetylated Lanolin, Alcohol, Triethanolamine, Tocopherol, Lecithin, Cholesterol, Carbomer, Peg-40 Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Tryglycerides, Ester Waxes and Water.
Basically, the product doesn’t contain peptides, which may eyelash growth stimulators contain. It is mainly composed of amino acids, moisturizers and conditioning compounds. But based on the rave reviews, it does promote fast eyelash growth.
Since it costs only $19.99 (as of this writing), I decided to try out Virgin Lash.
HOW TO USE VIRGIN LASH GROWTH SERUM
To use the product, you apply it along the rootline starting from the outer corner going to the inner corner of your eyes every night before going to bed.
In just two weeks, I noticed that not only are my eyelashes longer, there are also tiny new lashes growing at the roots. By one month, I have full, thick lashes.
Now before you think it is a miracle product, I advise you to err on the side of caution. Upon further digging as to Virgin Lash’s great effects, I discovered several reviews stating that the active ingredient is no 3% Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Growth Stimulator/Follicle Stimulator. What it actually contains is the drug Bimatoprost; yes, the same drug in Latisse.
Not mentioning Bimatoprost as the active ingredient is a grave error on the manufacturer’s part especially since products containing this drug are prescribed by a doctor.
It is not advised to use any Bimatoprost containing product without a prescription because of the drug’s side effect of changing eye color. In addition, once you stop using the product, your eyelashes will revert back to its original state.
I strongly recommend that you first consult with your doctor before using Virgin Lash or any product that contains Bimatoprost. Only your physician will be able to tell you if you can use the product and, more importantly, instruct you on just how much of the serum you will need to apply.
