A few weeks ago I wrote a review - based on researching the ingredients - of Dermaquest's Dermalash eyelash growth product. I said that having looked at what was in it, I couldn't imagine that it would work. Within what seemed like minutes, Dermaquest's public relations person reached out to me and asked me if I would be willing to give Dermalash a try. So I did. And I'll be damned.

My lower lashes, which were a tad sparse and stubby, have filled out nicely. Overall, my lashes are longer. Dermalash doesn't seem to activate the virulent growth that Jan Marini's eyelash product does. But then Dermalash doesn't contain a glaucoma drug and that maybe a good thing.

On the other hand, I have no idea how Dermalash works. Perhaps it is the extract of imperata cylindrica, which considered one of the world's most invasive plants. I shall try to find someone at Dermalash who can give me the lowdown.

    Marta - Is it OK to use BOTH Dermalash AND Folligen? Also, what (if anything) is the difference between Dermaquest - Dermalash and Dermaquest - anti-aging - Dermalash??

    Hi Tracy

    Thanks for pointing out the phenoxyethanol. And you are quite right about safety and the concentration etc. These preservatives are pretty hard to avoid, so I say if you like something use it. Hopefully, manufacturers will start to find safe alternatives though. As much as anything else, we don't know what the cumulative effects are. Dermalash probably uses a safe concentration, but when you add in your shampoo, eyeshadow, cleanser.....

    Hey Marta,
    First of all, thanks for sharing such useful information with us. After reading your posts for a while I've decided to buy Dermalash, so I did a bit of research. On this website I found that the ingredients of Dermalash contains Phenoxyethanol, a cosmetic preservative that MIGHT have negative effects on the brain and nerves. Copley has also mentioned about this chemical in
    I just thought that I'd point it out; I'm still determined to get Dermalash though. There's barely any cosmetic products out there that doesn't contain traces of negative chemicals, it could be either dangerous or perfectly safe depending on the dose and mixture, and how much (and the way) you apply it, isn't it?

    Thanks Marta! :)

    Dermalash sounds very promising.. with either of these, what were your results like, especially with the upper lashes?

    Dermalash or Folligen - although some readers have said Folligen has stung their eyes. This has never happened to me. You need to apply both carefully.

    Hey Marta- thanks for posting your reviews!! In your opinion, which one product would you say is the best, but does not contain any drug whatsoever? Also, with that product, what were your results like (how much longer)? I really want something that will provide me with the MOST dramatic results, but won't harm my eyes as I wear contacts. Thanks!!!

    <p>your review in Arpil 22, 2008 for Dermaquest's Dermalash eyelash growth product, have you found any more positive results from women using this product. I would love to try something to help my lashes grow without the worry of potentially changing my eye color or effecting my vision as well as using dangerous ingredients.</p>

    <p>Thank you!<br />
