This is the best generic eyelash growth serum you can find. It's way cheaper than the expensive brands out there. This product really works well and lasts forever. I started seeing results in just 4 days!
Just got mine today from eyelash123.com. I ordered it last week. Hopefully this thing will help me grow my awful eyelashes. Will update you guys later.
Updated: It's almost 2 weeks since I used this and I already see great results!!! My lashes are growing longer and thicker! I'm so happy!!! =))) oh, and it's cheap too, compared to what's out there. The website says one bottle can last about 2 months.
Yes it did make my sparse asian lashes get more curl and a little teensy bit more length.
That being said, while I am on my vacation, I managed to experience a lovely side effect of ----
dry eyes/itchy eyes/redness.
That is horrible because I am now on tour in Italy and am unable to even pop into a pharmacy to get any allergy medicine to see if that will settle it a bit more.
That being said, I should've been moe cautious.
This was alright for a few weeks when I was home in Canada, but I'd always wake up to gunky eyes.
Should've stuck to my gut and stayed away!
II have been using this product for more than 6 months. I love the results. It made my eyelashes look really full and long. I was looking for a website to sell this cheap, and most of them are intentional and charged really high shipping cost. Finally I found http://eyelash123.com/ which sell Careprost for $30 included shipping, especially it located in US.
I am so glad I found this product! I've always had pretty nice eyelashes, but my eyebrows had gotten much more sparse over the years, and one actually had a little spot where no hairs were growing anymore, or not much anyways, and I had to fill it in with pencil. After reading the reviews here and learning about the generic latisse, I thought I'd try it. I ordered from alldaychemist.com for super cheap (around $11 I think). The shipping costs were high, but this still only brought my order to about $35, which is not bad for generic lastisse. And it works!! My eyebrows quickly began to fill in, and the semi-bald spot completely filled in. For this alone I would give it 5 lippies, but I have also used it on my lashes and I can see that they have gotten longer too. Not sure about thicker, and they don't seem darker, but they do look great with mascara. Oh, and I have been very sporadic about using it - maybe 2 or 3 nights out of the week, when I remember and am not too busy or tired to do it. I use the two drops in the cap method, and that has been enough for both my lashes and brows. I clean the little brush they give you with alcohol after every use. Also, I have blue-gree eyes and I haven't noticed any pigment changes, which was my biggest concern with using it. So overall, great product, fast acting (saw results in 2-3 weeks) and not a bad price considering how much the non-generic costs.
I have serious eyelashes already,like Rachel Weisz eyelashes, so I don't think I would have ordered this on my own. A friend gave me a bottle to try and it does work. I started getting super long lower lashes that looked odd and it wasn't worth it for me.. (only put the tiniest amount on my upper lashline once a week but somehow it transfers)
I would like to just mention, to anyone that orders from ADC or any overseas pharmacy- you might want to use a Visa gift card instead of your normal credit card. I have heard of people having problems with unauthorized charges so to be super cautious I use a store bought gift/credit card when I order Tazorac online..
Update- I had a few people ask about using a visa gift card with ADC. One person had problems trying to use one and her card was rejected. If you have a visa gift card and are trying to order from ADC make sure you go to the visa gift card site and register your card first. When I tried to use one without registering the card my order was rejected from ADC. I haven't ordered from ADC for awhile and it's possible that they no longer accept these cards ???
I started out using a bottle of Latisse and then got in on a group-buy for Careprost from AllDayChemist, so the last few months I've been using the generic Careprost. I've noticed nothing different with the two formulas. I am currently at 10 weeks and wanted to write my review for my results SO FAR and then update at 16 weeks when growth should be complete. I am finally, this week, starting to walk past a mirror and stop and do a double-take, looking again to see that YES! I can see my lashes looking so much more profound on my face! This is when looking from afar... I am so fair and blonde that usually NOTHING stands out on my face at ALL! It's just a big wash-out! But prominent lashes are what I am seeing at week ten. I'm so happy to see this! Finally! It's almost changed the way my face looks! I can't wait to see final results at 16. I will update then. I will do whatever I need to do to continue these results! The only pesky side-effects I can report are so minimal and so tolerable, it's almost not worth mentioning, but in the interest of being thorough, I will say that it can give me dry-feeling eyes, and sometimes maybe a little redness/irritation, but nothing consistent, and certainly not enough to stop my magic lash potion!! UPDATE- I think my initial awesome results were from initially using LATISSE. Then I switched to Careprost and I'm realizing now that my lashes never really reached that "amazingly long" length that everyone else has had. I'm wondering now if it was because of the switch to Careprost? Grr. I think I need to return to Latisse, because it just hasn't been the same since switching :(
This is a fantastic product. I used it every night in a line on my upper lash line & noticed longer thicker lashes after about 6-8wks of use. Initially I also did the bottom lash line but found that the localised redness on the bottom lashline was too noticeable while the upper eye lid doesnt show it as much. Also, even doing only the upper eyelid, I have noticed my bottom lashes are growing longer & thicker without direct application. After 3mths, I have gone down to 2-3 applications per week. I get compliments on my eyelashes all the time & people cannot believe they're real. It is a relatively safe product used to treat huge numbers of older people with glaucoma so the amount used topically for eyelashes is even safer. Aside from the very slight redness where I apply it, I've not noticed any other side affects. I've noticed a double layer of lashes growing & getting my lashes (light brown) tinted black once a month saves me having to use mascara. I love this product, looks like eyelash extensions without the expense or hassle !!! continued >>
This absolutely works. I purchased it mainly for by sparse areas in my brows (worked great) and thought I might as well try it on my already longish lashes. After 4 weeks I had to cut back to 1 x weekly as they were getting too long and at my age I think it looks kind of silly.
I did have some issues with dry eyes, itchy eyes & headaches but persevered with it and now I don't suffer any side effects at all. Have stocked up from ADC recently with no credit card problems so far - but my card is maxed anyway, so no one can use it ! : O
UPDATE 30/7/11 - Stopped using this on my lashes 4 weeks ago as lashes were growing in weird directions - I'm actually glad to have my old lashes back, Works great on brows though, just don't overdo it !
This is a good product in the sense that it did deliver what i hoped it would: longer, thicker lashes and i noticed results practically during my first week of use.
However, please have in mind that this is also a dangerous product with some very unpleasant side effects.
You do need to be extra careful not to get it into your eye and you should discontinue use if necessary. Please inform yourself as much as you possibly can and try to be aware and monitor how you feel during the treatment.
Today, on my week 6 of use i am sad that i have no other option but to quit using Careprost because i can't tolerate the side effects any longer.
In my case: headaches (mild, yet constant feeling of pressure, especially on my temples) and damaged skin.
Applying Careprost (as prescribed, above the upper lashes using one drop per both eyelids, very carefully) has dried out the skin around my eyes terribly. I've got two deep wrinkles on both sides now, which i dearly hope will decrease somewhat.
As for the pain, i'm a bit ashamed that i endured light but unsettling headaches and feeling of pressure on a daily basis just for the sake of having longer eyelashes without mascara. I hope there is no long term lasting effect on my health and that my natural lashes don't suffer because of this and do grow back after my Careprost lashes fall out, as they undoubtedly will.
I have encountered reviews online that talk about damaged eyelash follicles and women who are terrified because their natural lashes look much worse and are very fragile after discontinuing treating them with Latisse/Careprost.
Good luck and please be safe!
EDIT: less than a month later,
my skin is recovering (curiously, the wrinkles underneath my eyes are less deep and the skin on my face is more elastic and less dry. seemingly i had an allergic skin reaction), the headaches are subsiding (i still get a 'Careprost headache' which is different from anything i ever had earlier but they are fewer and fewer) and the feeling of pressure is gone.
no serious or abrupt shedding of eyelashes although there is no new growth, seems they are falling out gradually.
i can say that i'm glad i discontinued using Careprost and wouldn't go back unless i absolutely had to.
