New Giveaway Contest: Xtreme Lashes AMPLIF-eye Lash & Brow Fortifier

Congratulations to ne-knopka! Anna won the AMPLIF-eye Lash and Brow Fortifier!Everyone wants lush, long eye lashes, and I'm no exception. I'm depressed by the eyelashes that fall out regularly on my eyelid scrub pads. I know they grow back, but who wants to wait? Mascara can only do so much if you don't have eyelashes. That's probably why most mascara models and celebrities promoting mascara are wearing faux lashes. And what about those occasional gaps that form naturally when you've lost a few lashes in one spot - or the brow hairs that get temporarily thin in one spot, making you look lopsided?

Xtreme Lashes sent me Xtreme Lashes AMPLIF-eye Lash & Brow Fortifier ($119 for a three-month supply), which will be launched on Monday. In October, I reported to you that I had been using it for a couple of months, and my reaction was pure love. It made my lashes and brows thicker, and I'm sure it facilitated growth.

The living proof was a little spot on my left brow (at its widest spot) that had thinned. I had been using AMPLIF-eye only on my lashes, but I decided to try it on my left brow. Was I impressed! Within what seemed like a week of use, morning and evening, my eyebrows were even again as little brow hairs started to fill in the gap. Xtreme Lashes says that most users will see a difference in two-to-four weeks - and I did!

Working with the world leaders in eyelash growth technology, Jo Mousselli, President and Founder of Xtreme Lashes, developed a prostaglandin-free formula that delivers proven results without the drug-related side effects. In this highly competitive field, the ingredients and delivery system make this product a standout in a category filled with non-performers. "I had three objectives in developing AMPLIF∙eye Lash & Brow Fortifier," explains Jo, "it has to perform, it has to be safe, and it must be compatible with Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions (she's world-famous for those!)." She has succeeded on all three fronts.

Why is AMPLIF-eye different from (and more effective than) other lash conditioners or the lash-enhancing drug LATISSE? The most important thing is that it does not contain a prostaglandin. The prescription drug LATISSE contains Bimatoprost, a prostaglandin analog contained in glaucoma medication, and that's the ingredient that can make your blue eyes brown or discolor your skin - or even make your eyes red and itchy. I'm not willing to accept the risks of using a prostaglandin on my eyelids - even a small risk. I was surprised to learn that some lash fortifiers contain a non-prescription strength prostaglandin, which means it's present, but you may not realize it! I think that's creepy.

Xtreme Lashes worked with their own in-house chemist to develop the formula for AMPLIF-eye, which does contain a concentrated growth-stimulating triple peptide complex. The three peptides comprise a full 35% of the product, which is pretty powerful. Competitors claim to have peptides in their formulas, and they do, but peptides are expensive ingredients. They are often included in other products in very weak concentrations. Xtreme Lashes told me that AMPLIF-eye has twice the peptides competing products have.

The peptide complexes rejuvenate and restore the amino acid production that decreases naturally as we age. The penetration of the amino acids is facilitated by an organized phalanx of botanicals that pump a protein-enriched bath of oxygen-infused blood to the follicles to maximize growth. Besides the super-effective peptides, AMPLIF-eye contains green tea, borage, saw palmetto (a beloved herbal remedy for hair loss), evening primrose, nettle, rosemary leaf, ginseng, apple, sugar cane, and witch hazel. Sounds pretty natural to me! Intrigued? Check out the Xtreme Lashes Web site. If you head over there, check out their other products. GlideLiner is fabulous!

Now, I'm thrilled to announce that, courtesy of Xtreme Lashes, I have one AMPLIF-eye to give away. That's a $119 prize!

I think I've always been a neurotic beauty addict but the one thing I have always dreamed of was having those long, dark, gorgeous, flirty eye lashes, the kind you see on the animated Disney Beauties like Snow White, where all she has to do is bat her luscious eyelashes as all the men drop to their feet, starry eyed and in love. I've tried lash extensions which although they looked gorgeous for the time I wore them, when I finally did remove them, off came my real lashes as well.In a panic, I tried practically all the new serums on the market ignoring the potential side effects until I started experiencing some of them. Everything I've read about this product, including your review and how the product helped you to grow back the space between one of your lashes,has convinced me that this new product soon to hit the markets just might be the real deal. I get excited easily by most new beauty products but this one is sending my head in a tizzy.I'll be keeping my fingers and my toes crossed as good luck for a chance to try this magic serum. Thanks for another great giveaway.

I also retweeted as well about this contest on my twitter page at www.twitter.com/DianeLori.

Finally, I am an email subscriber (kleimanlaw at aol dot com) and I also follow your blog as well as follow you on Twitter.

Happy Holidays and good luck to all.

What a great contest, I definitely want a shot at trying this! I have practically nonexistent lashes, but do not want to chance the side effects of Latisse.
