What on Earth did I do without this stuff??? I am so happy to have found this generic Latisse! It is like liquid magic....and for only $10 per bottle!!! I would have never known about this if it wasn't for my fellow MUA'ers, so thank you! I have been using this around 9 months and my lashes are insanely long and thick. I have grown several new rows of lashes, I kid you not! I finally put my mascara and eyelash curler aside, because with it, my lashes look so long, it's ridiculous...like up to my eyebrows. People always think I'm either wearing eyelash extensions or plain old glued falsies. When I tell them it's my bare lashes, they are completely shocked. Check out my photo gallery here on MUA to see before and after pics. I'm still amazed, myself!
I started using Carepost on the 9th of this month and within the first week, I already saw some lengthening! I was really surprised that this stuff works so fast. I was using Rapidlash for 7 months then went straight to using Careprost. Although Rapidlash did make my lashes a bit longer, I wanted more length and this seems to be the ticket.
There was no side effect for me whatsoever. My boyfriend has not had any either(I put this on the roots of his lashes every night cause I want to see how long his lashes will grow lol) and his eyelashes did start getting longer also within the first week of using Careprost.
Update 9/11/12 :
It's been 2 months since my boyfriend and I started using Careprost. 1 bottle lasted us a month and a half which is really great. My eyelashes are now really long and thicker because I grew new lashes that weren't there before and I noticed my eyelashes are now very shiny and each lash very fat. I use a 10x mirror so I see all the little changes. My boyfriend's eyelashes are also long now and very pretty and fluttery like mine. :) Still haven't experienced side effects. Can't wait to see the full result in 2 more months.
I've been using Careprost for almost a year now and it has given my eyelashes astonishing growth! Everyone who sees me thinks I'm using fake eyelashes. I buy mine for $30 a bottle which includes 2 applicators. The company I buy from does 2-3 day shipping for free anywhere in U.S. I love my eyelashes and I will always use Careprost as it is the cheapest in the market. If anyone wants to buy it cheap and gets to you within 2-3 days, you can contact the company I buy from, their email is email@example.com. My friends and I are in love with this product :)
Hi. My eyelashes were short and had some areas of "balding" which I believe were due to going through menopause. Been using Careprost for about 6 weeks now. The first month, I had more curl in my eyelashes and little to no visible growth. Then I started to see the "bald" areas begin to darken. Now I still have the curling effect with growth. Some lashes tend to be longer than others. I will not trim them as some reviewers say they do. I purchased my Careprost for $35. from an ebay carrier because I could use paypal. I do not have any darkening under my eyes because I first apply emu oil as a barrier and attempt to let it dry before sleeping. I still use it faithfully every night. I use an applicator brush from another eyelash growth bottle. It is very small and provides just the right amount of coverage. Do not let it drip on your skin. I have applied the excess to my brows and they are full. The benefit of longer lashes for me is important because i have small almond shaped eyes with not much eye lid showing. I can see the growth particularly when I look upward in the mirror. My eyelashes nearly touch my eyebrows. When I use mascara and eyeliner, my eyes really pop. I am hoping there will not be any side effects that would prohibit my use of Careprost. I hope you have great results!
I've been usuing the product for over a year now and it's amazing. I used to wear false eye lashes when I would go out at night, but my lashes are so long and thick now that I don't need to anymore. After about 2 months of consistent use you will definitely see a difference and I think after about 4 months you will see full results. After 4 months I started to apply it ever other day or every 2 days and my lashes are so long that when I look up they touch my eye brows! I don't even have to look straight up, just slightly above eye level. If you want really long dark lashes, you have to get this stuff. Just remember, consistency is key with this.
I have been using this for about 3 years - get it from AllDayChemist. When you start you must use it everyday. When you reach full potential then you can go every other day. For those of you getting darkined skin here is how you stop that. Apply it under the lashes at the base of your lid instead of on top. You might also want to get a better brush then the one that they send you, one that is softer. I also apply my eye pencil, powder or gel the same way from underneath and push it up through the lashes. Give it as try.
This is the product through which i discovered this site, makeupalley! I was considering this when my anesthetist wrote me a prescription, but nearly had a heart attack when i called a few pharmacies to inquire the price. I then cruised around the net and found these reviews. The first bottle i purchased was from Amazon, at around $50. That bottle lasted me 18-20 weeks. One drop is enough to use for both eyes and brows. I used a tiny little, i mean TINY little brush included from the vendor. The brush included from alldaychemist was more like a lip brush, and i like it because it does get tedious using that teeny little brush. the pros of using the teeny little brush is that it itches less.
I then took the advice and purchased it from alldaychemist (careful: not alldaychemist and not alldaySchemist) with a mastercard that isnt used very often or have a big balance, just in case. They unfortunately dont take paypal, my main form of payment for online purchases.I have had no problems, however.
after the second week to one month i noticed initial growth in length. I was substantial; i kept staring at them in the mirror, absolutely fascinated. Then it stayed static until the very end, about 10 weeks in, i started to notice thickening. It wasnt until the very end of 16 weeks that they grew to final length and thickness. It is exactly as others have described; one day upon waking up the lashes' growth and density seem to explode. I am now into the 7th month of use, and yes, i use every other day. I should reduce to every 3 days.
I do use this product on my eyebrows and lower lashes (shame!) but not until after the 16 weeks of growth on the top lashes only. I dont really notice it as much on the brows, but very much notice on the lower lashes. It is difficult to apply, and the product does turn the skin slightly darker. The top lid has a line of darker skin along the lash line, but i do use a little eyeshadow and it covers it right up. There is a spot on my lower eye, just inside the lash that i have touched with the product and that dot is still there. Its fading though.
To say this product has transformed my lashes is an UNDERSTATEMENT, as my lashes are freakishly long and have received many comments, "your lashes are the longest ive ever seen" or "are those real" or "who does your lashes" are some of them. They are so thick too, not just the length, which i would have been happy with. It is beyond expectation
It is easier to apply mascara, as i dont have to butt up to my skin very closely anymore; they also curl with the mascara alone (no more lash curler needed).
I hope they dont fall out, as i have heard from some, after long term use. If they do, then i hope to take a break and resume, as i am spoilt rotten how gorgeous they are and how they make me feel so sexy and confident! I do have some shedding once in a while, but only one or two and maybe once a week. If i shed before, i didnt notice, so this may be perfectly normal. I will use this forever: i consider this the one product i would have with me on a deserted island.
Ive had some breakage on the left side, but dont think its due to the product. Its been itchy lately, so i think its a bit of over zealous rubbing. I sure do hope so, because i would be SO SAD if i couldnt use this anymore. I still have a full bottle unopened and a bottle ive only used for a a month. It must be the bigger brush im using. The more product the more side effects but not not more results! Time, and not more product will get your results.
So I think I'm using this for already a year or so...probably my 3rd bottle. I also ordered from alldaychemist with no problem but the last time I ordered from 4nrx pharmacy.
It's TRULLY unbelievable!!! you so have to use it every night for 6 weeks to see the first results and of course keep using -otherwise you'll go back to your regular length..:) I did kinda get fed up with applyng everyday so for a while I skipped here and there and ended up with my short old lashes.. I still skip once a week now, but it's fine.
It definitely lengthens and I think I have more lashes now..
I know one of the side effects is getting darker eyes (and I have green and dont wanna loose them..) so I check every once in a while my eye colour :) I'm quite sure nothing has changed till now..but I dont know what will happen so I'll keep checking.
CONS: I did start to get this redness around my eyes, like where i apply it and right under my lower lashes, and a couple of people mentioned that to me. But since I wear mascara and eyeliner - it usually isn't very apparent, though it still is annoying and not very nice.
Overall: I bought this again and will keep on doing so!
I'm 49 years old and absolutely love Careprost. I had been a previous RapidLash user, and while RL did make my barely-there lashes a little longer, I really wanted the length that product like Latisse gave. Then I heard about Careprost and that it contained the same ingredients as Latisse at a fraction of the cost. Not to mention one bottle lasts me over 4 months.
It took about 6 weeks to notice a difference (same as RapidLash), but after that my lashes seemed to lengthen overnight. I'm going to add a picture collage to show the difference. I am just blown away with the results and will remain a Careprost cliet forever!
I've been getting my Careprost from Isis-Cosmeceuticals, 4 bottles for $99. This is the best deal I've found since I stopped using Latisse, which was way expensive. I've been getting awesome results with careprost my lashes are so thick & long they look a bit fake and i love it! A few girls even asked me where I get them done at and Im like "these are my real lashes" hahaha I just recently started using it on my eyebrows too, I still shaped them up, but I want them thicker so I can stop using liner to fill them in.
