Mavala Double Lash – The Results

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 17 - 2010

A few months ago (read 5… yeah, I’m slacking), I started trialling Mavala’s Double Lash that I’d picked up in an effort to improve the condition of my eye lashes which had been breaking and looking a little sparse ever since giving birth to my daughter.

Anyway, how did I get on?

Here’s how my lashes looked back in October:

…and here they were when I finished the trial at the end of December:

I applied Mavala Double Lash every night as directed for around 10 weeks.

They say:

Eye lashes are an essential element of face beauty. Double Lash contains proteins which strengthen, cover and protect the lashes allowing them to become healthy, long and resistant.

It is the natural active ingredients in Double Lash which stimulate growth of the lashes giving them a lovely luxuriant and silky appearance.

I think I see a teeny bit of difference if you use my eyelid crease as a benchmark.  I felt on occasion that my lashes were longer and thicker (particularly when I was wearing mascara) but I just wasn’t convinced that I couldn’t attribute at least some of those feelings to plain wishful thinking.  Unless there’s a significant difference with things like this, I think it’s pretty tricky to judge.

I didn’t experience any irritation using the product, and it literally took seconds to apply each evening.  But, I guess the crux of the trial can be summed up with this simple observation… I haven’t bothered to repurchase it.

Mavala Double Lash is available online priced from around £8.50

Tell me, do you see any differences?

    Honestly? I can’t see ANY difference! If anything, your lower lashes seem longer/fuller in the first picture (albeit by not much). I definitely won’t be buying this one!

  2. Dvoradivine says:

    Teeny weeny bit! I still might give it a go. :)

  3. I do think I see the slightest bit of different, but maybe not enough to go out and buy this product. I don’t know if I believe any of these lash serums/treatmeants or whatever will ever make that much of a difference!

  4. So not “double” lash by a long stretch!

  5. Meeta says:

    They seem a little longer, but in terms of fullness I think I prefer the first pic. I personally prefer L’Oreal’s Renewal Serum as I have noticed improvement in length and thickness of my lashes.

  6. Rhamnousia says:

    The only difference I can see is that they’ve curled a tiny bit. They looked fine in the first place!


  7. They looked great before you started! I can’t really see a difference to be honest, not enough to make me go buy it anyway. Thanks for doing this though! :)


  8. Beeks says:

    I can’t say I see any difference between the “before” and the “after” pics, but jeez do you have nice lashes! It looks like you have two or three rows of lashes all growing one on top of the other! If your lashes are sparse, then there’s just no hope for me, ha ha!

  9. I think they look the same? Sorry. =/

  10. pomme de terre says:

    £8.50 is not too bad actually. Your lashes look as if they had a little pick me vitamin shot. They were already looked good to start with, and so much longer than mine. x

  11. Judith says:

    Honestly, I don’t see any difference either, sry! But I would KILL for your natural lashes in the first place 😉
    I’m trying Talika’s Lipocils right now, but not long enough yet to tell any change :/

    Greetings from Germany 😉

    They seem like they might be the TEENSIEST tiniest bit longer, but they actually look fuller in the first pic. D:

  13. Ondine says:

    I’m sorry – gotta say I can’t see a scrap of difference.

    That said, you have very lovely long eyelashes anyway, you lucky thing!

  14. I dont see a difference either, but your lashes have the loveliest natural curl :)
