Rapid Lash Review & Side Effects
Rapid Lash Eyelash Renewal Serum promises long, dark and full lashes in as little as four weeks, at a fraction of the price of other eyelash serums. RapidLash has recently been making waves because of its claim that it can indeed produce longer and thicker lashes.
Using the product is quite simple. Rapid Lash Eyelash Renewal Serum comes in a tube, and is applied on to the base of the lashes once daily. It should be applied right before going to bed, yet it can also be applied at the start of the day, and can be used underneath mascara. It can also be used along with eye make up, eyelash extensions and contact lenses.
What’s Wrong With Rapid Lash?
While the product is claimed to be effective by some users, there are also those that have been left disappointed, not only because of the ineffectiveness of the product but because of the side effects as well.
All in all, the information available on Revitalash is shady and sketchy. Their official website does not even contain any information about the company behind it. At the same time, adequate information on the active ingredients of the product is also lacking.
Almost all eyelash conditioning and lengthening products produce the same mild side effects such as itching, mild irritation and eye redness. Eye irritation and stinging can also occur when the product gets into the eyes.
Darkening Of and Around The Eyes
Rapid Lash Eyelash Renewal Serum also causes an unexplained darkening around the eyes. The effect is similar to wearing eyeliner. While this effect is temporary, plenty of people dislike this darkening effect.
Most of the mentioned effects of the product are just mild. However, it also has its own share of alarming side effects. One of the most alarming effect caused by RapidLash Eyelash Renewal serum is change in eye color.
Some users have experienced a change in eye color while using the product. People have witnessed their eye colors changing from blue to dark brown, or almond to dark brown.
This eye color change is oftentimes a permanent one, and can lead to eye problems like blurred vision. This effect is also said to cause eyesight damage and loss of vision in the long run.
RapidLash Active Ingredients
RapidLash does not contain bimatoprost, which is used by other eyelash lengthening products. Bimatoprost is a chemical component that has been used to treat patients with glaucoma. While it has been effective in improving the length of eyelashes, it has been subjected to much scrutiny because of its dangerous side effects.
While RapidLash does not contain this ingredient, it still contains other active ingredients that also produce its own set of side effects. The active ingredient Isopropyl Choprostenate, for example, is the main active component of RapidLash. It is derived from prostaglandin, and while it also has lash lengthening effects, it is unapproved by the FDA. This is the component which causes change in eye color.
Some ingredients like Chlorphenisen, Phenoxyethanol and Panthenol all cause irritation to the eyes. Both Chlorpehnisen and Phenoxyethanol relax the central nervous system of the body, and this can cause nausea, vomiting and headaches for some.
All in all, these side effects are enough to cause any person to worry. While these side effects will definitely not affect all users of the product, they can occur to anyone.
Presently, Rapid Lash is conducting an independent trial in order to gauge and find out how harmful their product is. For the meantime, it would be wise to steer clear of this product and use something else until the results of the trials have been released.
