Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have the long, full eyelashes of your youth again, the eyelashes you had before they became thin, sparse and brittle with the passage of time and a lifetime’s worth of harsh mascara and eyeliner? This is a dream shared by many women, and according to Susan Lin MD, the creator and manufacturer of MD Lash Factor, it’s a dream that can now become a reality. Below we will take a closer look at MD Lash Factor as described by its manufacturer, and provide some insight into what some of the customers of this increasingly popular product are saying via reviews.
What Is MD Lash Factor and How Does It Work?
MD Lash Factor is billed as the ultimate eyelash and eyebrow conditioner. Utilizing a patent-pending formula created by Susan Lin MD, the product is rich in essential proteins and vitamins, and takes the science of eyelash and eyebrow beautification to new heights.
MD Lash Factor eyelash conditioner is applied in the exact same manner as you would any eyeliner or mascara. Lin suggests that customers apply the nutrient-rich, topical serum once a day, preferably right before bed time, to the bottom of each eyelash, right where it comes into contact with the eyelid. When used consistently, some people will see noticeable results—results that include longer, fuller and more resilient eyelashes—in as little as one week. However, for most people, maximum results are not attained until after 4-8 weeks of regular use.
According to the official website, 95% of MD Lash Factor users report longer, thicker and fuller lashes after just 2 months. This success is credited to Dr. Lin’s research into scalp hair regeneration and conditioning, through which she discovered how specific antioxidants and cytokines could benefit both the eyelashes and eyebrows, without the use of drugs or growth hormones. Important to note, however, is that unlike other products of its kind, which claim to aid and actually stimulate eyelash growth, MD Lash Factor includes a disclaimer on their website, clearly indicating that the product is merely a conditioner and not a growth stimulant.
MD Lash Factor retails for $140.
MD Lash Factor: Ingredients
As we mentioned, MD Lash Factor uses a combination of essential proteins and antioxidants to fully condition eyelashes and eyebrows, which in turn gives them a fuller and more distinct appearance. Below are the ingredients that help to accomplish this:
Water, Hydrolyzed, Glycosaminoglycans, Phenoxyethanol, Triethanolamine Acrylates/C 10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Caprylyl Glycol, Panchenol, Sodium Chloride, Biotin, Sodium Lactate, Sodium PCA, Alcohol, Sorbitol, Panthenyl Ethyl, Ether, Alcohol Denat. Inositol, Milk Protein, Lactose, Acetyl Cysteine, Acetyl Methionine, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, L-Ergothioneine, Proline, Sodium Phosphate.
MD Lash Factor: Pros and Cons
- All Natural. MD Lash Factor is all-natural—a very important selling-point for many customers. This means, as mentioned above, that it contains no drugs or prostaglandin analogues, the latter of which has recently received plenty of bad press for the danger it poses.
- Easy to use. MD Lash Factor is applied just like eyeliner, leaves no mess, and washes off easily after use.
- Hypoallergenic. MD Lash Factor is hypoallergenic and causes no allergy-related side effects.
- Conditions only. Unlike other products in this same class, MD Lash Factor is not an eyelash growth stimulant, but merely a conditioner.
- Expensive. At $140, the product is very expensive compared to other products in the same class, especially when you consider that the best results are not seen until after nearly 2 months of continued use.
If you’re merely looking for an eyelash/eyebrow conditioner, and money is no object, then MD Lash Factor comes fairly highly recommended. The product is drug-free, easy to use, hypoallergenic, and seems to work somewhat for most people. However, at $140 a bottle the product is approximately double the cost of similar conditioners—conditioners that claim to produce the very same results. Therefore, for the sake of frugality if nothing else, we recommend you shop around first before taking the plunge on MD Lash Factor. Odds are you’ll be able to find an equally effective product, without the enormous price tag that comes with MD Lash Factor.
