RevitaLash, Latisse Offer Latest in Fringe Benefits


When we glanced in the mirror this morning we did a double take. Our eyes were looking far more glam than we’re accustomed to in the a.m. Had we forgotten to take off our eye makeup?

We rubbed our eyes. No black smudges. And then we remembered: A few weeks ago we had begun brushing the eyelash enhancer RevitaLash along our upper and lower lash line each night. We’d been inspired by a beauty-savvy friend who had given up her monthly $200 eyelash-extension appointments once she discovered her naturally stubby lashes grew to rain-forest lushness with a few swipes of the lash conditioner.

Now we understand her decision: After less than a month our own weepers are already sporting a decidedly more dramatic fringe.

In the winter of 2007, as you may have heard, there was a bit of an FDA dust-up when Allergan filed suit against several manufacturers of lash conditioners that contained the ingredient bimatoprost, which the pharmaceutical company sells in its anti-glaucoma eye drops. The over-the-counter lash products tweaked their formulas, and Allergan is now marketing Latisse, a brush-on version of its glaucoma drug, as a prescription remedy for “hypotrichosis” or “inadequate” lashes. Latisse will cost $120 for a one-month supply. (A $150 tube of RevitaLash lasts five to six months.)

All this intrigue means more options for the beauty consumer. But be aware that both Latisse and Revitalash have one limitation: Stop using them and your beefed-up lashes will return to their pre-treatment state.



  1. Peter von Berg says:

    If you are buying REVITALASH or LATISSE you are definitely paying far too much. Check out BEAUTYLASH MD, which uses a similar active ingredient, lasts for 5 to 6 month and sells for ONLY $ 59.–. It also comes with a 90 day money back guarantee which the others don’t offer.
    That’s what I call a fair price in this hard economic times. I hope you publish this that your readers
    will know about this fantastic offer.

  2. I would take caution before using Latisset. in my opinion, the pros out weigh the cons. Side effects are dark circles, change in the color of your iris, red/itchy eyes… hmm, I would think that out weighs having more eyelashes. Not to mention, why go through the hassle of a prescription when I can purchase Revitalash from my salon??

  3. Revitalash post the same warnings about iris darkening and the hyper-pigmentation at the base of the lashes and the possibility of sensitivity. You can read it right on their website. However since it has never been FDA tested who knows? Revitalash can spread infection because the applicator is not disposable, and it goes from eye to eye back in the tube. With Latisse you use one applicator per an eye and you don’t let it touch the tube. Revitalash does not disclose its active ingredient, because it is a drug parading as cosmetic to get around the law, which is dangerous. I would rather get such a potentially dynamic product from my ophthalmologist with FDA testing and approval than from a nail tech at a salon with a soppy PR story.

  4. As VIV’s editor, I’m glad to see your comments on this story–VIV has been following the lash-growth product area for some time now and we promise we will continue to stay on the subject. (Watch for a story in the May/June issue.) I do want to respond to Kathy’s comment, though, about safety. As of November 2007, RevitaLash reformulated to take out what was alleged to be bimatoprost, the same active ingredient found in Latisse. Today, RevitaLash contains fairly standard cosmetic ingredients which you can in fact find listed on its website. The first two? Water and salt. As far as the applicator goes, a reusable applicator here is no more dangerous than an eyeliner or mascara wand. Sure, you could throw those out every time, but why? We’re not endorsing any of these products, but I want to be fair in balancing the criticism of them. Which, if any, you choose is entirely your call.

  5. As an Aesthetician, I am very picky about what I use on my face. I first tried Revitalash a year ago. I’ve tried a couple of other eyelash growth products (including Latisse) but found them to be extremely irritating to my eyelids. Revitalash is the only one that doesn’t cause irritation and gives amazing results. Plus, an MD developed it, so you know it’s safe.

  6. i have foregone having an eyelash extension in favor of Revitalash and didn’t have regrets one bit. It didn’t cause redness or itchiness. It just gave me longer and thicker lashes. I love it!

  7. Samantha says:

    Latisse is the worst thing you can use on your eyes , same things applies to revitalash, both product cause itching, eye redness, and above all you are putting harmful nasty chemicals in your eyes.
    Envyderm and lashfood are a way better alternative they are both natural, paraben free, and clinically tested to work

  8. Lissa23 says:

    I am sorry to say this but I have been using the eyelash conditioner from revitalash for almost a year. I am very satisfied with it, it never gave me any discomforts like irritations and itchiness because if it did, I will never have the 2nd thought to switch to another brand. However Revitalash eyelash conditioner is responsible why my eyrebrows now are looking naturally enhanced, looking fuller, darker and strong. Why would I switch when I am very satisfied with it? I am sticking with Revitalash!

  9. sara evans says:

    “I originally wanted the Jan Marini Eyelash product but it is very hard to get. When I called, the esthetician recommended Revitalash and I have to say, it is great! I have only been using it three weeks but have started to notice a difference already. I am a lifer…”

  10. I love everything about RevitaLash! I’ve already been able to tell a huge difference. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone!

  11. I just got my revitalash yesterday and I will start using it tonight im excited on the result. I really wanted to have long thick and fuller lashes like a doll.

  12. I agree McKell, everything about Revitalash is really lovable. It really makes a difference and the satisfaction you get is amazing!!

  13. have you tried surfing at or

  14. VeniceLey says:

    Hi Serina! You are absolutely correct. Revitalash is the only reason why my brittle and dull lashes, are now looking fuller, darker and healthier. I’ve been using it for a year and a half for now and noticed the changes after 5-6 weeks of using it. You’ll just have to be patient and that’s all it takes.

  15. Woow!! I was surprised, I’m using revitalash for my lashes as well and just like CarlaS, it really changed my lashes gorgeously. My sisters kept asking me what I applied to my lashes and told them it’s revitalash.

  16. Camille says:

    Anyone using MaximumLash here? I’m using Maximumlash Eyelash Conditioner and I love my eyelashes now. I tried other eyelash conditioners before but we can’t say which is best for us until we try them. So now I am using maximumlash and so far I love it. How about you ladies, are you satisfied of what you are using now?

  17. Exactly Ladies! I have similar experience with some of the ladies here. My brittle, short and fragile lashes before are now looking fuller, darker, longer and healthier. All because of the Revitalash eyelash enhancer that i’ve been using for about a year now. Thanks to revitalash. I don’t intend from switching to another brand. I am loving it.

  18. I am using Revitalash mascara and I am very happy with it. It lengthens my lashes 2 times and when I go out wearing it people look longer in my eyes.

  19. Camille is right, some won’t notice the effect or the improvement of our eyelashes unless they will see us for quite sometime. I’ve been using MaximumLash Eyelash Conditioner now for 6 weeks. What I did is that I took a picture of my eyelashes the day I started using it. Now my lashes are absolutely beautiful. Most of the times my friends won’t appreciate of what I wear anymore because when they see me it’s my eyelashes they will notice. Thanks to MaximumLash! You should try it, it’s better for me and it may be the best for you.

  20. I saw significant growth on my lashes in using Revitalash it’s healthier, longer, and thicker. Revitalash is one of the product that are safe to use and affordable

  21. I have allergy problem with some cosmetics and skin care. I was recommended Revitalash by my doctor and I’m glad that it doesn’t cause any allergy reaction. Also, it makes my eyelashes look so awesome.

  22. It’s been about 6 weeks since I first posted about my sister and me using different lash-growth products. I’ve been faithful with my Maximumlash Eyelash Conditioner and am quite happy with the way my lashes look. They are definitely longer and oddly enough–curlier!!! I’ve also been using it on my eyebrows and have noticed they’re starting to fill in. My sister, on the other hand, gave up on the other brand she’s using after 3 weeks. She found it terribly irritating and hated the brown discoloration it caused all around the eye area. I have to say, it didn’t look good. So, I recommend her to use Maximumlash Eyelash Conditioner than any other brand.

  23. It’s true. I’ve been using RevitaLash since March. And it really works on my lashes..At first, I just bought the eyelash conditioner..and now, I’ve been using mascara too. It gives me more stunning eyes. Many of my friends noticed my fuller & thicker lashes. Thanks to RevitaLash!

  24. If you have sensitive eyes the best time to use Revitalash is once a day before you put on your makeup or before you go to sleep and have cleansed your face just a small amount. No matter how brittle, short, fragile, thin or sparse your eyelashes are, Revitalash can help you achieve your very own long, beautiful, healthy looking lashes

  25. Definitely true Linsha, me? I’ve been using Maximumlash Eyelash Conditioner and for me to a cleaner look better apply something into your eyes when everything is dry to avoid mess…with my eyelashes there’s no need for me to do more about it coz it already have its perfect shape, thanks to the famous and trusted eyelashes shaper no other than the Maximumlash! Use it! It works fast and effective.

  26. Rosemarie says:

I felt so well-situated using this product, I am very thankful with what it did to my lushes. From a brittle and dull lashes, now is looking fuller, stronger and healthier.

  27. Hi Rosemarie! Yeah! Maximumlash Eyelash Conditioner is already now out in the market. Try it! And you’ll never regret it like Linsha. Using any cosmetic enhancer doesn’t work overnight for you to see the result the question is, is it worth the wait? In Maximumlash it’s a yes, because you really can see a result for a couple of weeks of using it and you can proudly recommend this product. So far I’ve had no allergies or side effects with Maximumlash. I think it’s great!!
