A very sensitive eye with hazel color iris could have some darkening but this is very unlikely in the amount recommended. ...Read more

Thank you. If the revitalash works, why does it stop working after if I stop using it and just those lashes fall out again?

Thank you. If the revitalash works, why does it stop working after if I stop using it and just those lashes fall out again?

Revitalash: RevitaLash has a prostaglandin that thickens & lengthens eyelashes present (side effect of original medication used for glaucoma).

My inner eyelashes are missing from pulling them out months ago. Usually my lashes grow back but these arent. Are they gone for good? What can I do?

Perhaps: Lashes when pulled, usually grow back within few weeks. If your lashes have not grown back in several months, there is a good chance that their roots are damaged and they will not grow back. You should not pull your lashes since they can grow in a wrong direction and be quite irritating and damaging to your eyes. Consult an ophthalmologist if such problem occurs. ...Read more
