Natural Extension

While mascara and eyelash extensions can give you the illusion of lush lashes, Wink goes to the root of the problem to actually promote hair growth. And the best part is, Wink delivers thicker, fuller eyelashes and eyebrows—naturally. The formula contains no parabens, sulfates, pthalates, hormones, prostaglandins, or artificial dyes. Wink is the brainchild of Megan Cox, a self-professed "cosmetic-crazed science geek from MIT" whose quest for beautiful lashes led her to create an all-natural, hypoallergenic solution that stimulates the hair follicle to leave the "resting" phase and enter the "active" phase. In addition to encouraging natural eyelash and eyebrow growth, Wink also acts as a conditioner to help strengthen and prevent further breakage. Specifically formulated to be gentle on the skin, Wink appeals to people of all ages and all stages of life; it has even been used by those recovering from the effects of chemotherapy. One bottle goes a long way, containing a two-month supply for both lashes and brows. Apply daily for visible results in as little as 2 weeks and full results in 8 to 12 weeks. Unlike other cosmetics, Wink doesn’t just mask the problem—it helps solve it.

    Eyelash extensions are becoming more popular by the day, and I get it, I myself was totally captivated by the idea of instantly possessing thick, full lashes -- until I found out that in addition to being a serious time and money suck, it's also dangerous: if the aesthetician doesn't apply them right, it can cause fungus, the last thing you want anywhere near your eyes.

    We wanted a product that produced thick lashes, naturally and effectively - so we created one, and we volunteered ourselves as the willing test subjects. We're proud of the final result, and we're excited to share it with all of you! Please let us know if you have any questions about the science, mechanics, or results- thank you!

  • Megan
    Megan – Special Guest
    6/25/2014 1:27 PM

    @Chris You will want to remove your contacts before applying to ensure none ends up on the contact. After using for a while you will get the hang of having your extended wear contacts in and also applying Wink.

    Is the result permanent? or is it permanent while in use?

    How many times a day do you apply?

    Thank you.

    Hi Claudia,

    Amy from The Grommet team here. Great questions and you can always find this type of information in our details portion which you'll see when you click into the box that says "Buy". The results are not permanent and you should apply once daily for the first 12 weeks. You can then decrease to a "maintenance" stage, 3 times per week.

    Sounds like a great product, but how does it work? What are the 'active' ingredients that promote these results? (I have sensitive skin and very, very light colored lashes...so I would LOVE to have thick, full lashes that you can actually see!) Is it applied to just the root line of the lashes and brows? How many times per day? Possible side effects? Thanks for your help

  • Megan
    Megan – Special Guest
    6/25/2014 1:32 PM

    @Guest Wink works to stimulate your dormant follicles, and strengthens the lashes and brows you already have. Yes, you apply to the root line of the brows and lashes. We have had very few people have sensitivity to our all-natural formula. Apply once a day, but it is safe to use two or three times a day. We do suggest you clean off all makeup before applying, which may limit how many times you wish to apply it.

  • Megan
    Megan – Special Guest
    6/25/2014 2:27 PM

    @guest To follow up on the active ingredients question- Wink's active ingredients are essential fatty acids which work to restimulate follicles in the resting phase to the growing phase.

    6/25/2014 1:25 PM

    Mary, because it's all natural, there are no side effects unless you have a sensitivity to one of the natural ingredients. It can be worn under mascara, although it is naturally oily. It washes off with mild cleanser and water

    Do you have any real before/after pictures? It sounds like a great product, but what a time investment. The time investment is of greatest concern since everybody values their time immensely. In your pitch video you mention that you must be diligent about using the product, so I'd like to see some results if you have them from folks who HAVE been diligent.

  • Megan

    @Susan To ensure the highest quality, the lash enhancer itself (liquid) is sourced from and created in the United States. The bottles are filled and assembled within the United States.We tried to source the packaging from the United States, but every cosmetics packaging company in the United States has a facility in China. We will continue working on that piece of the supply chain.

    The FDA does not offer clinical trials for cosmetic products, but we are compliant with all FDA cosmetic and labeling standards.

    We have conducted several tests on the product, including stability testing. The ingredients are safe for ocular use, according to the physician's desk reference. We have not yet connected with an opthalmologist, but will look into it!
