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.
