Longer, full-flutter lashes – who does not desire them? With this in mind, SA Palette says it has made an eyelash and eyebrow product to stimulate eyelash length and thickness. It is with keen interest that we embark on a review of Eyelash & Eyebrow Growth Formula, which utilizes the power of botanical extracts, vitamins, peptides, and amino acids to give you voluminous lashes. So, what kind of results can you expect and after how long? SA Palette says lashes typically grow 56% longer after 6 to 8 weeks, but they can grow up to 82% longer.
What’s In SA Palette Eyelash & Eyebrow Growth Formula?
The key ingredients are:
- Green tea
The polypeptides are the building blocks of amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein, which is all-important for growth. Aloe soothes and hydrates, while grapeseed, green tea and ginseng all contain antioxidant properties to stop cell breakage and premature aging. They also strengthen the lashes at a molecular level. Together these ingredients also contribute to the shiny, healthy appearance of the lashes. Our concern though is that as good as these ingredients are, they are not tailored specifically for eyelash growth. The aloe-grapeseed-green tea-ginseng formula could, for example, just as well be an anti-aging and renewing skin formula, or half of an anti-stretch mark formula, among many others. The specific ingredients shown in top research journals as vetted by leading scientists include Vitamin E, Marula oil, pea sprouts, Vitamin B5 and resveratrol, but these are missing. This means aspects of deep nourishment, collagen stimulation, age reversal are absent from the formula. It weakens the product offering.
How Do You Use SA Palette Eyelash & Eyebrow Growth Formula?
Make sure your face is clean. Apply the formula to the base of the upper and lower lash line with a single stroke. Start from the inner corner of the eye to the outer edges. Use twice a day, morning and evening. Apply makeup only once the product has dried, and expect lashes in 6 weeks. After three months, by which time you should have seen full results, use the product only three times a week.
You’ll pay $69.99 for the wand. There are no discounts.
Is There a Guarantee?
The company’s external communications make no mention of a guarantee or return policy. This is not something which is view in a positive light. Any manufacturer confident in the kind of results their product will produce, should, in theory, be proud to back it with a guarantee at a minimum, and a returns policy at best. We have seen that the products which are proven to work the most efficiently come with standard 60-day return policies. In some cases, there are even 365-day return policies.
The Conclusion of Our SA Palette Eyelash & Eyebrow Growth Formula Review
We like that the manufacturer has very clear guidelines in place for when you can expect to see results. This eliminates the need for guesswork. It is also great that you need to follow up with a maintenance routine only, as you’ll then need less of the product. Ginseng is somewhat of an unusual but amazing ingredient to include in an eyelash serum. It has some of the most potent anti-aging properties found in any botanical.
Surprisingly though for a wand in this price range, the company does not make mention of any patented ingredients that are used. The benchmark in this aspect is a minimum of five patented ingredients, as patented ingredients assure you of high-intensity potency, delivered to where it’s needed in the most stable, accessible form so that the results are superior. Secondly, the company offers impressive improvement statistics in dedicated time frames which is great but fails to provide any links to the studies or trials on which these claims are based. Finally, although some of the ingredients included are to be lauded, there are not-negotiables we expected to see included (based on high level, peer-reviewed research), but which were missing. These compromise the long-term effectiveness of the formula and, therefore, in all likelihood, the kind of eyelash enhancement that is possible when using this serum.
