Mavala Double Lash Trial

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 10 - 2009

Since having Leila, I’ve noticed that my eyeslashes have been breaking more often and generally looking a bit sparser than normal.

I’m not in the market for lash growth solutions like li-lash and revitalash, but I do want something that promises to keep them in tip top condition.

Enter Mavala Double Lash:

They say:

Double Lash contains proteins which strengthen, cover and protect the lashes allowing them to become healthy, long and resistant.

To be fair, I’m not holding out much hope, I’m sure it has all to do with post-pregnancy hormones and no amount of proteins is going to alter that.  However, Double Lash is inexpensive and I figured it can’t hurt to try right?

The bottle is huge! It would take me a year to get through that much product!  I’m going to apply it to my lashes (and brows) every night before bed and see if there’s any differences to be seen in 30 days time.

Here’s the obligatory “before” shots:

Mavala Double Lash is available online from FeelUnique priced at £8.25

    Your lashes look pretty thick beforehand, I thought those were after shots.

    Anywho, whenever I feel my lashes are getting a bit weak I just smear Vaseline on them and they grow and get super soft themselves so if this product doesn’t work, try Vaseline, the wonder product

    Rhamnousia, how do you apply the Vaseline? Do you rub it all over the eye, or do you brush it on like mascara with an old mascara brush? I would be worried the Vaseline would make my eyes puffy!

    Hey Alicat, Vaseline won’t make your eyes puffy at all, you know how it makes your lips soft? It makes your eyes and lashes that soft, I either close my eyes and get some on my finger and roll it down my lashes and then open my eyes and watch tv for a while (about 10 mins) and then take it off with a tissue/cotton buds. Or I apply it with cotton buds in the same motion as above and then taken it off. I tried the mascara wand method but didn’t get a lot on there so gave up with that.

    Can I ask… how do you get such detailed images? The lighting, the close focus… just brilliant. I want to start doing images and applications on my blog but not sure how to get them to look correct. Any advice would be appreciated! xx JT

  6. Hi Jessica, Thanks!

    Lots of good light is the single most important thing. All cameras achieve better focus in good light.

    Having said that, I do have a gorgeous DSLR camera which goes a long way to making things easier!

    All the shots above were taken in the evening with my flash.

    Hope that helps :)

    I don’t know if you’ve heard about this, but where i come from castor oil is said to be lash enhancing (recommended for your hair too). I have been using it for a long time and found it really, really good. I apply it with an old brush from what used to be a lash treatment that was 15 times the price and no use. So you might give it a try :)
