EyEnvy Eyelash & Eyebrow Lengthener/Conditioner | Review

I don't know if it's just me but I'm always so jealous of those girls that have beautiful long, thick and curled lashes! Unfortunately I was not blessed with that but definitely wish I was. I have short, thin and straight lashes. How unfortunate for me, right? I came across this eyelash & eyebrow "conditioner", "enhancer" or "lengthener" as I like to call it. It is the Eyenvy Eyelash & Eyebrow Conditioner. I discovered this product when I went to get my eyelash extensions done and was recommended the product. I usually find these kinds of products very gimmicky and when they told me the price of the product I thought that it was even more gimmicky! Despite how on the edge I was about EyEnvy, I decided to take the risk and buy the product. p.s. I must've been quite desperate for long lashes at that moment for me to have agreed to purchasing the product. I do have to say though that I chose correct this time and don't regret the risk of blowing the bills on this one item!

If you don't know what EyEnvy is then here is a run down of the product.

What is it? 
Eyenvy is an eyelash & eyebrow conditioner.

What does it do?
"Clinical Studies have shown that EyEnvy helps improve the length and density of your own natural lashes". So really, it is supposed to improve the length, volume and thickness of both your eyelashes and eyebrows.

When should I use EyEnvy?
If you want to have nice long, luscious lashes or thick eyebrows. Some people even purchase EyEnvy because they have damaged their eyelashes from rubbing, pulling or irritating your lashes over time.

When can I see an improved appearance of my eyelashes and eyebrows?
4-6 weeks (side note: I saw an improved appearance after the 1st week but it wasn't until the 4th-5th week that I saw noticeable differences)

How much does EyEnvy cost?
I paid around $85

How long does EyEnvy last?
It holds a supply of up to 5 months

Is there constant up keep with the use of EyEnvy?
You need to apply it every morning to see improvement sooner! (personally, I put it on at night before I go to bed so that I am not touching my eyes as often) There are also instructions that come with the product explaining how to keep up with the use of the product. I just found that the way I am using the product was most efficient for me in getting longer lashes.

What is in EyEnvy made out of?
Combination of Vitamins & strengthening peptides! I know that is rather vague but here is a more detailed list:
1. Sodium hyaluronate (moisturizing factor that penetrates deep down into the dermis & promotes skin/blood micro circulation and nutrient absorption and maintain normal metabolism)
2. Grape seed extract (Potent antioxidant and wound-healing properties)
3. Bio-Peptides (Amino Acids - Helpt to rejuvenate and strengthen fragile hairs)
4. Tocopheryl-Vitamin E (Natural antioxidants to protect hair and follicles from environmental damage)
5. Ginseng root extract (Helps repair damaged hairs)
6. Chamomile (Helps soothe the sensitive skin)
7. Penta-peptide (Helps follicles reach their full potential)
8. Vitamin C (Acts as an antioxidant)
9. Vitamin A (Establishes normal skin function)
10. Vitamin B3 (Niacin amide - Cell communicating ingredient. Stimulates micro circulation in the dermis)

Were there any side effects of EyEnvy?
For me, yes, there were. After using EyEnvy for about 2 days my eyes became so red that it looked like I had pink eye! There was no pain but there was slight itchiness. I did use pink eye drops though to soothe my eye whenever it needed to be soothed, which was not very often. After consulting with my friend who also used the product, I came to the discovery that she had the same side effect as well when she first used the product. I am not sure if it is common or happens among all people but that would be the only "issue" I have with the product since they claim that you will have no side effects with the product. It was not a big deal to me, as the problem did go away in a couple of days. Another "side effect" of the product would be the mild darkening of the skin at the base of the eyelash that may occur, it will fade with discontinuing use. I don't feel like it bothers, at the moment!

My Experience:
I have been using this product for a total of about 3 months and have been quite pleased with the results that is has been giving me. I can really see the length and fullness in my lashes now! Of course my lashes aren't ultimately where I want them to be but I will definitely continue using the product until I have none left to see the progress of my lashes at that point! I understand how expensive it was to purchase the product at once but I wouldn't mind purchasing it again as it really only costs $17 a month, technically, if you were to break the total price down. I think it would definitely be worth purchasing the product again since I really am seeing results in the length, thickness and volume of my eyelashes. Here is a before and after picture for reference (p.s. I have NO makeup on in either photos!)

Before - October 8, 2013
After - January 26, 2013
So, after seeing the dates of when I took these pictures I can see it has for sure been at least 3 months since I have started using the product. As I write this post, this is also my first time seeing my before and after picture in comparison side to side. As you can see, in the photo there is much more thickness and volume that you can already visualize right away! My length has gotten longer, which you can't see so well in the photo, but I would still like improvement in the length regardless of how long it is now. Referring back to earlier in the post, in my after photo you can see the mild darkening of my skin at the base of the lash line. In person, I feel like I can not see the darkening as much which  is why the issue does not pose any glaring concerns for me. Actually, the picture seems to form a shadow that looks like darkening of the skin...when there actually is none! Overall, I am quite pleased with the improvement of my eyelashes through the use of EyEnvy and would recommend it to anyone who is seeking some luscious lashes in their life!

I hope this post and my experience will help give you an educated decision on whether EyEnvy is right for you, gave you a comparison to another brand or just gave you more knowledge about the product!

If you have any questions regarding the product feel free to tweet me, email me or leave a comment below! I would love to hear from you!

Do you have any tips and tricks for helping you grow out your eyelashes?

Cheers,

  1. This product does work. My friend had noticeably lovely thick and long lashes that I thought she must have had lash extensions for her wedding day. I am definitely going to buy this product.
