Beauty

Lash Envy. You know what I’m talking about – you’ve had it. It might be a friend, coworker or girl at pilates class. You’ve even given in and asked her what mascara she uses. You rush out to Bendel’s to buy the same brand and find yourself utterly deflated when you slather on layer after slick black layer, only to find you resemble a raccoon more than a sexy doe-eyed siren.

Well, my friend, I am about to deliver a little holiday gift to you…5 months early. You CAN ACTUALLY IMPROVE YOUR LASHES. Yes, I’ll say it again. YOU CAN ACTUALLY IMPROVE YOUR LASHES! Nope, I’m not talking about another $30 tube of mascara or fake lashes that eventually fall out (inevitably on your cheek or plate, at the most inopportune moments, and always taking a few of your own meager lashes with them). I am talking about how to really improve your lashes by actually nourishing them.

Ok, so I agree with you…it’s amazing how the most obvious things sometimes take the longest to really ‘get’. I mean, lashes are hair, and we condition our hair regularly. Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before now!?! Don’t even dwell on it, sister, I have spent plenty of time on that myself. All I can tell you is that, as of today, you have the chance to change your lashes.

FNS (Folicle Nutrient Serum) Nutrilash by Osmotics is the answer to your “if only I had those lashes” prayers. To quote the company on the specifics, “Based on ground breaking research in wound healing, this proprietary mixture of vitamins, minerals and amino acids provides the essential nutrients for growing strong, healthy lashes and brows. This all natural formula is ocular tested, completely safe, and non-irritating. Uniquely designed for the eye area, Nutrilash is packaged in easy to use, hygienic, single dose applicators.”

In my own words: I tried the Nutrilash product. I found it easy to use, even though I wondered how on earth I’d make it a full 28 days to see the results (the company says it takes about 4 weeks to see results). After about a week and a half I started noticing a change in the texture of my lashes; I even received several compliments on how thick they were. By the third week, I got a taste of life on the other side of Lash Envy; getting compliments almost daily, from friends and strangers alike. Now I use Nutrilash once or twice a week for maintenance and my lashes have never looked so healthy or felt so strong. Mascara goes on better, when I even bother wearing it. I’ve also used it on my sometimes over-waxed brows, and have noticed some added fullness there as well.

Take the first step towards healthier, thicker, fuller lashes by picking up your own FNS Nutrilash kit at www.osmotics.com or at your local Lord & Taylor or Nordstroms.
