I was searching for something else but found this article.

Do you believe this? If that's the case, why in the world did I pay $90 for Revitalash?

Seriously...IF I am patient (as in being able to wait a whole year), and IF I am NOT already using Revitalash at night, and SAS KGF for brows on lashes in the morning, and Ardell during the day (after the KGF dried up), THEN I would like to try the Vaseline method. Maybe when all else fails....I'd give this a chance. It sounds so sticky though. I wonder how you get the vaseline on your lashes without it getting inside your eyes.

Actually, this definitely works. And it feels soothing (to me) -- plus there's nothing to get IN your eye.

I did this back in high school. It worked great.

Also -- I never bothered with a mascara wand. What's the point? I just smeared it on with my finger. Very simple -- and it didn't take no year to see results, either. Smile

Actually it does work. As a teenager I would use vaseline on my lashes instead of mascara, I would just apply it with my finger. I was always getting comments on my lashes.

I stopped using it and definitely noticed a difference, my lashes were nowhere near as long. A couple of years ago I tried the Talika and my lower lashes went mad, so much so that I had to start cutting them as they looked freaky with mascara on. I then tried the JM, but only for a few weeks, mainly for the top lashes, I wanted them to be as long as the bottom ones.

I now don't use anything BUT still I have to cut my lashes, especially the lower ones because they're just far too long. They look really weird with mascara on and I even apply the mascara normally and then pinch it off the ends so it's not so noticeable.

I had just as much response from using vaseline as using the JM and Talika.

I have tried using vaseline on my lashes & it adds a nice natural glossy shine, but I think it's a bit messy to use. I just prefer using Ardell. Smile

I'm glad you reminded me of this, I haven't done it for ages. It definitely does help. I have quite long eyelashes anyway, but I find when I use vaseline as an eye make up remover, they definitely look slighty longer and healthier.
Ooh I just bought a new tub, I'm going to start doing that again!

I am not going to believe everything I read. First, it that blog doesn't tell you why it works or how it works it just makes some bogus claim. Vaseline is just petroleum, how in the world will petroleum make your eye lashes grow longer??? I would like to believe it works, and this post has piqued my interest, but to have to use it up to a year in order to see results seems extreme. Just food for thought...

and i would like to see pictures of these long eye lashes

It moisterized my lashs well, kept them from breaking, made them look darker from root to tip, from conditioning. But for me it never helped any in growth or thickness.

Same with Caster oil, or Mineral oil.

For me, it was just a good conditioner.

This most def does work, I've said this for a very long time, it won't happen in 3 weeks as with JM, but its at the very least a great conditioner!!

I would like to add that I used it for years as a teenager, not just a few weeks, don't know how long it took before I noticed they were longer, but it worked for me.

I'm sold! I'll definitely try this after I'm done with RL. If RL doesn't work for me to make my lashes super long in 3 months, I'll just keep conditioning them to make them healthy. I'm ok with the way they are right now since they're full and medium length like most normal people.
