*update* Jan Marini Eyelash Conditioner

I'd say this stuff works!

*UPDATE*

Yeah, this stuff works great but you might not be able to see the results if you continue to use it.

FDA RECALLS EYELASH CONDITIONER

I'm no longer using this product. My eyes were feeling a bit strained lately and I thought it was due to the computer screen but perhaps that's not the case. I also noticed that I wasn't able to see the cable guide on our bedroom TV as clearly. After learning about the recall my tube is headed for the trash bin.

Thank you to those who commented about this and posted the recall information. I LOVE new products and was amazed at the results but I never would have pimped this product had I known there were "issues" with the FDA.

That is awesome! I wish I had long, fluttery lashes like that. Little Sister S has them, but mine are more dense and thick as opposed to long and lustrous like yours. Very cool.

Wow! Looks great! I think I've used their mineral foundation before if they have that in their line and really liked it. I always like your recommendations, I am using the Oil of Olay Regenerist and Freshwave products right now and am very happy! Do you get that Beautytube sampler every 3 months? I've thought about it...

I hope you're happy.

I used to have a recurring nightmare as a child, where I'd walk up to a fence with a knothole in it and then - suddenly - an eye would appear on the other side.

I'd wake up screaming. SCREAMING.

Years and years go by...and I've forgotten about it.

UNTIL NOW.

Great.

Happy New Year.

Wish me well tonight...I won't be getting much sleep.

kbl: You too can have these lashes! This stuff is great. I was worried because I was losing a lot of lashes everytime I washed my face so this definitely helps.

mindy: what's the beauty tube sampler? I'm not familiar with it. You just reminded me-I have another amazing product I need to post on here!

moooooog35: I really wish I had photo shop on my laptop because I would cut and paste my eye into the knothole of a fence just for you! Sweet dreams...

Go to newbeauty.com and it is called TestTube. From what I've read, they send you 4 tubes a year and you pay $30 a tube but it has a ton of products in it. I have been wanting to try it out.

Those are great eyelashes. :) But I just read that the FDA recalled all her eyelash conditioner products. Did you guys hear that yet?

Mindy said...

Didn't know about the recall but I found this response. Sounds like some bureaucratic BS.
Jan Marini Response

That stuff about the ingredients scares me. If I was going to use anything, I'd try something I heard the women are using over in Taiwan. My friend spent a year over there teaching English and lots of the women use Keracyte, which is cheaper than Jan Marino for a larger portion of the product. It conditions the hair follicles and succeeds in making eyelashes thicker and longer. You can read more about it at www.keracyte.com.

I agree, Jan Marini Lash Conditioner really worked, but has been discontinued! My friends are using Revitalash and love it so I will switch based on how great their lashes look! I found great pricing on www.theskinspecialist.com and they gave me a new customer coupon when I emailed them. Don't say I told you! :) They were SO nice and really knew their stuff. I was told Jan Marini's conditioner does not expire until 2009, but I will try Revitalash before I stock up.
My lashes are truly amazing but given how happy my friends are with Revitalash I will give it a try! Did you Jan M. also has a product for thinning hair?
Sad to see Jan Marini go.... they have updates and articles on that website I mentioned, (theskinspecialist.com) about the products and comparisons. Hope you guys get a coupon too!

I thought Revitalish contains the same ingredients as Jan Marini's product? I'm afraid that may not be safe to use either. I've never tried either product and was curious about both but after seeing all this I'll stick with my stumpy lashes and use my Dior mascara.

Mindy said...

The whole Pet Food Recall showed me how inept the FDA really is, and whose side they are really on, and it's not the consumer. The fact that there are still other products on the market with the exact same ingredients as Jan Marini's is another good example. I need to figure out something funny that the acronym FDA should really stand for...

Smileygirl said...

How about "F*cking Dumb Asses?"

I'm sure it's only a matter of time before the other products are pulled.

Mindy said...

I love it. I am so disappointed that I didn't think of it myself, but I had just woken up.

browneyedgirl81 said...

That really stinks about the symptoms you are experiencing with your eyes! I hope it is just a case of being over-tired or something. Maybe try to rest more, sleep and relax your eyes.

For my URL, I linked a page on my website where I have posted an article I wrote on relieving tired eyes. Maybe something in there can help...

Hopefully it's just temporary strain!

Revitalash will be pulled as well. They are being sued by Allergan. Besides, it causes darkening of your IRIS (if you have hazel/blue eyes, i would not use Revitalash). Revitalash had to reformulate their product because FDA was after them. Since they changed it, the product does not work well anymore.
Also, Revitalash can decrease your vision over time.

Revitalash has a serious side effe ct. Andrew Iwach, M.D: "In some patients there can be a change in the color of the iris."

That's right, the iris color can actually darken or even change - especially in hazel eyes and the change is permanent.

I use Enormous Lash, it gives you the same gorgeous lashes but has NONE of the harmful side effects like these other lash conditioners have! It doesn't contain the prostaglandin since it's reformulation. I have seen amazing results, and the product has a great record. It also comes with a money back guarantee, It's hands down the hottest beauty product on the market!!!

I don't know what "anonymous" is talking about...I have hazel eyes and have noticed no side effects and no changes in my eye color. Just long beautiful lashes! And I've been using it for a year. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
