Fitglow Good Lash+ Review

When I became a Mom, I pretty much stopped giving a crap about how I looked (I haven’t brushed my hair in two days, but who’s counting?)
However, if there’s one thing I cannot leave the house without, it is mascara. Mascara is the product that can turn you from looking into a very haggard man with long unkempt hair, into a relatively sleep deprived woman with unkempt hair. Or something like that.
Enter Fitglow Good Lash+
A current cult beauty favourite, I had to get my hands on the mascara that seems to rival all drugstore (dirty and toxin filled) mascaras.
Behind the Brand:
Fitglow Beauty is evidence-based natural and organic makeup. After facing some skin problems and irritation the founder, Anna, decided to take matters into her own hands and formulate products that would perform without being filled with subpar ingredients.
Featured in Best Health and beauty magazine, the Fitglow Vegan Good Lash+ claims to be a 3-in-1 cure all for sad, dilapidated lashes. It increases volume and length of your lashes while nourishing them. The “potent” vitamins and antioxidants in the formula help to moisturize and improve the overall health of your lashes.
Helps to moisturize and condition lashes which in turn helps with their growth and overall volume.
Organic Horsetail Plant
The horsetail plant naturally absorbs high amounts of silica which can help to strengthen lashes.
Organic Rice Bran Wax

So how does the Fitglow Good Lash+ Perform?
I’m going to start by saying that I think I received a dud. The formula seems to be very dry and flakey, but I know from reading other reviews that the formula doesn’t seem to be that way for everyone. I’m not sure if it’s just a tube that happened to sit around too long or what, but I can’t seem to apply it without having tiny flakes fall into my eye.
Mascara flaking into your eye is no joke, that shit hurts.
Putting the flakey and dry formula aside, I find that the mascara applies pretty well. The brush is unnecessarily large (in my opinion.) My preference for a mascara brush is something a little bit smaller and more curved, like the Pure Anada mascara wand. However, after a bit of getting used to this also works well at grabbing each lash.
If you’re looking for volume, you’ve come to the right place.
I cannot deny that this mascara definitely gives lashes a must-needed boost. It can bring them from being sad and invisible to pow and in your face. Just scroll back up and take a look for yourself! I must admit it is pretty impressive for a natural mascara.
But does it last?
I was kind of disappointed when the first time I wore it I noticed that by the evening it had managed to make it’s way onto my eyelids. Leaving a horrible black line. I mean, I haven’t done anything too strenuous to make me sweaty… unless you count bouncing an infant in my arms on an exercise ball for hours a day a workout. (I guess in a way it is, but it hasn’t caused me to sweat.)
Overall I’m undecided on whether I’d give this product another go. It seems to have high praises in the Green Beauty community, but I just don’t feel that I experienced the best that this mascara has to offer. For the relatively high price of this product I am especially bummed out.
When you consider spending $42 on a product that has to be replaced every three months it can really add up. Especially when I wasn’t overly thrilled with the performance; but that could also be due to receiving a dud product.
