City Lash Review
Many products have hit the market proclaiming you can get longer, thicker lashes using their products. According to CITY Cosmetics the difference between the others and theirs is, City Lash uses the potent Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 as its main active, the other products use over hyped- mineral oils This ingredient has been proven through many clinical trials to get results – with the average being 54% and the highest at 72% increase in lash line.
I had heard of a few of these eyelash enhancers but being the skeptic I am had never tried one, until I was offered this review. Even then I hesitated, but the only way to know if something truly works or not, is to give a try so I agreed.
I received a tube of City Lash, it looks the same as a mascara or eyeliner style container, the applicator is a little pointed brush. You apply City Lash on clean, dry skin, at the base of your lashes, twice a day and in 40 days should see thicker, longer natural lashes. According to City Lash, what I read stated, “Even for the most sensitive skin and eyes, CITY Lash is safe, natural, fragrance free, never tested on animals, and contains NO prostaglandin or paraben, which can damage eyes and skin.” Along with many testimonials, and articles in magazines, it sounded totally safe, and like people who tried it love it. I decided it was something I felt comfortable giving a try, I hate my skippy eyelashes, and they have become worse with time.
I was never blessed with beautiful eyelashes, and I’m not a lover of fake ones, so if City Lash worked it be great especially for the summer. I started out being faithfully using the product for over a week, then I had a horrible sinus infection and slacked off, not really wanting to even touch my face. But once I felt well enough, I began using it daily again.
You apply City Lash to your upper lashes only, use the little brush and apply right at the base of your natural lashes. Simple, and quick, it really felt like nothing was even applied. A little wet feeling that goes away quickly, and that was it! You can then apply your normal makeup, including mascara. I had absolutely no sting, no itching, nothing and I have sensitive eyes!
So twice a day, somedays once, and about the 30th day or so, I did infact notice that my lashes looked darker with no mascara. Then I realized … they’re not darker…they really are thicker! My lashes were in fact noticeable with no mascara, and with my short, skimpy lashes that was huge! I normally look like I have next to nothing for lashes without mascara. Only now I could see them.
What City Lash does is extends the life of your older lashes while encouraging new growth, thus more lashes at the same time which means thickness. I now can add mascara and instead of coat after coat of application, I apply one quick coat and have noticeable nice looking lashes, thicker and So I continue to use it, hoping for even better results, full results are suppose to be within 40 days.
Old lashes normally fall out and are replaced without us noticing, but as you get older you may notice your eyelash are thinner, mine are and they were never thick enough to start with! So I have to say I am impressed with the results I obtained with City Lash. It’s on the pricey side a tube, which should last roughly about 2 1/2 months. Once you stop applying you will notice your normal eyelashes returning to their normal thickness and length, as they go threw the normal growth and loss process. So bottom line is its a product you would want to keep using to maintain the results. I myself I think it is worth it especially for summer months when I least like wearing mascara. Between my allergies the heat and water activities going without mascara but still looking like I am wearing some is awesome!
I don’t have picture of my own before and after only due to a lousy camera, that did not let me get a shot that wasn’t blurry. Above on on their site you can see ones from City Lash, all I can say is for me I did in fact see a noticable difference. This summer I will be able to wear less makeup for a more natural and comfortable look.
