Drastic Measures

Long, Lush Eyelashes just a few months away

I spend at least five minutes a day starring at my eyes, looking for any evidence that my small, thin set of eyelashes are actually getting thicker. I have asked my husband, Bill, to look into my eyes, but he thinks I am trying to hypnotise him, so he won't do it. Unless I am hallucinating, I am starting to see longer, beautiful lashes.

It has been three weeks since I began applying Jan Marini's, Marini Lash eyelash conditioner. The product was recommended to me by Linda Elia at her office Wax 2 Max in Scottsdale, Arizona. Linda is known around town as giving the best Brazilian Bikini wax and awesome massages (even though she hardly weighs 100 pounds!). On my last visit to her office, I was complaining about my small eyes and tiny lashes. She said many of her patients have been pleasantly pleased with their results, so I was ready to try it on for size. Literally.

Hoping that a product will work is different than believing that a product will work. I am a bit of a skeptic by nature, but as I grow older and tend to be open to more ideas and concepts, and of course, new products. I do think that the cosmetics companies know that many 50+ women will try anything once and that's why the market is flooded with products to improve our looks. That's why you need a trusted opinion from someone, like Linda, to steer you in the right direction with new products.

I also found this site that ranked eyelash conditioner products which I found helpful:

Here are my eyes (one without mascara, one with mascara) in the third week of applying the lash conditioner. I will take new pictures each week and you can be the judge. Am I spending my money wisely? Can you see the difference? Use the comment space and let me know what you think.

I say - don't waste your money on this type of product. You look beautiful just the way you are.

Yes, I can definitely see a difference!! They look great and its only 3 weeks. Yeah!! I don't sell anything I haven't tried first. So I knew it would work. Many also use it on thinning areas of their eye brows. It comes in a mascara tube and when used every night the tube will last about 6 months. If used on both lashes and brows it will last 3 months. Jan Marini is a professional product and is sold at my office wax2max. To place an order call me, Linda at 480-664-6649, also check me out at Unfortunately, orders cannot ba taken online due to the rules. Many doctors, hotel and high end spas sell it for so much more, that we are not allowed to post pricing. Thank you! Please do not leave messages or orders with the receptionist, for she anwsers the phones for the entire building. If you get a voice mail, it is because I am with a client or not in the office. Thank you, again!

Please upload another photo. I think it has been a month since this picture, and I'd like to see the difference.
