Re: I Miss mY Eyelashes

I lost all my eyelashes, and I hated every minute of it. Around the time they started growing back in (badly), I received one of those annoying advertising emails from Real Age. This time, though, I gave in to temptation and followed the link to the DermStore. I bought the advertised product--SmartLash--because it was the only time I've ever seen it on sale for a reasonable price. It's usually $100/tube, and I got mine for $29.95. There was also an option to sign up for 30 or 60 day automatic deliveries at the same price. To sweeten the deal, they sent me a free bronzer (that I didn't need) and a one-year subscription to Shape magazine (that I also have no use for).

Really, I'm not sure what's up with all that--if they'd just offer the product at a reasonable price to everyone all the time, they'd have plenty of sales (based on the reviews, it does work for most people, and unlike Latisse, it won't make your blue eyes brown).

With all that said, a couple of days ago, another one of those emails arrived in my box. I can find nothing in it to prohibit my sharing the link, so if anyone here ever wanted to try SmartLash, here's your chance.


Well, that's embarrassing. I have no idea why it pastes that way (I've never seen a copied link do that), but if you hover on it, you can see the unobfuscated link. It will send you straight to the DermStore through Real Age. Maybe they get a commission.

This one time I have to say "thank you, Dr. Oz, for spamming me," because my eyelashes are growing in thicker than they've been since I was in my teens.
