Because of a price increase in my medical benefits, I had to budget and cut corners. So I stopped Latisse at $107.00 and got Careprost at 30.00. Smart move on my part because this works just as well.
Honesty counts with me though and I'll be honest with you. I"m almost 58 years young. Any woman my age has most likely gone through losing lashes that were once lush, thick and plentiful.
This is not going to give you the lashes you had when you were 20 years old--neither is Latisse. However, it WILL give you much longer lashes. Longer lasher = a more lush appearance. Yes. I still have to wear my much maligned mascara, but with the equation of Careprost + Mascara, my lashes look great. I've even been asked if I had lash extensions or fakes on. Will continue to make the purchase, but I do wish that there were a better way to package this. I use a slim eyeliner brush to apply.
Careprost is such an amazing product, I've been using it for over a year now and you can tell the big difference on my picture from day one! Now, I'm just using it every other day for maintenance so a bottle lasts for over 2 months. I purchase my Careprost from Lifetime Lashes because they are local and they give applicators for free, with free shipping. I heard about ordering outside US and they get credit card fraud, so be careful with that. Just make sure that you are ordering from a safe website. One thing I notice though is it makes my upper eyelid pinkish which is not really an issue to me since I cover it up with eyeliner. Over all I'm happy with the results!!! Couldn't ask for more, you can check my profile picture to see it for yourself!!!
I've been using Careprost for almost 2 years now. And it has created a dramatic effect on my eyelashes. I get compliments left and right. I have hazel eyes and they didn't get stained or dark. The only thing it makes your upper eyelid a little pinkish which I don't really mind because I use eyeliner everyday. I buy mine from a local website in California called lifetimelashes. They provide free applicators and free shipping so I receive my order in just a day or 2. All I can say it, it's one of the best things that happened to me, i love my eyelashes now!!!
My eyelashes are super long. I have been use Careprost for 3 months. I just love Careprost but, I wouldn't buy from alldaychemist. They used my banking information and another forum I was on, many said the same thing. I research on the net for a trust worthy company. The company I buy from has the biggest Careprost community on Facebook. (Careprost Essentials) I would rather spend my money with a trusted company then compromise my credit.
PLEASE DO NOT GIVE A LOW RATING OR EVEN WRITE A REVIEW ON THIS PRODUCT (Or any product on makeupalley) IF YOU HAVE NOT EVEN USED IT. THIS IS NOT A REVIEW OF ALLDAYCHEMIST'S SERVICE OR WHEREVER YOU BUY IT FROM. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE REVIEWS ON THE PRODUCT ITSELF! Pffft sorry but stupidity pisses me off.
Moving on to MY REVIEW, I love it! Saw results after 2 weeks of using it! So far so good, I will update when I have reached the 16th week mark!
Also, I bought 10 at a time from alldaychemist and sell some to my friends to save on shipping cost. So you might wanna do that :)
I purchased my Careprost from ioffer for $27.00 with freeshipping, it arrived in 3 days (Feb 11th, 2012) and I started using it immediately. Since starting I have noticed a patch of eyelashes that I pulled out while removing my extension is growing back in. I will keep everyone updated with my progress once I complete the bottle. I say so far so good!
I have ordered several times from ADC with no problems. I do think this past time it has been irritating my eyes a bit...red eye and watering. I ordered several and will throw out what i have been using and try a new bottle asit could also be allergies. I have used Latisse in the past and have had no problems, HOWEVER I think their applicators are non-effective as they absorb most of the liquid(pricey) before it even gets to your eye! And I think ridiculous to use 1 for each eye. I put one drop in palm and use tiny eyeliner brush and this is AMPLE for both eyes. I think it is a marketing ploy to get you to use one bottle a month.
Dunno about this. I started using this nightly on January 7th. It is now the 25th and I see no lengthening results. I will say that my lashes are much stronger. I haven't lost one lash since starting this treatment. Most ladies in reviews said that they saw result in 2 weeks and I was hoping to be one of them :(. hasn't happened for me, though. Will update when I see some lengthening. For now, 1 lippie for the strengthening.
***UPDATE*** 3/11/2013 Been using this for 2 dull months now and it is working!!!! I'm really excited and am bringing up my review from 1 lippie to 3. It is just 3 lippies because I now have longer lashes but no more thickness. Also, it is uneven, my left eye has curlier lashes (always has) so the growth while there, doesn't show. I am still on my first bottle and I use a smashbox eyeliner brush to apply, use the excess on my brows. I do have some eyelid itching and under eye darkening as I use this on the top and bottom lashes. I ordered 2 more bottles yesterday as I plan to see just how long my lashes can get.
Purchased this product from inhousepharmacy.biz
$30 per bottle.
The product took about 10 business days to arrive. They provide tracking info, which is nice. Packaging was standard. If you order in bulk you get a better price. If you can find a few friends who want to go in on it with you, I'd recommend taking that route.
As far as the actual product goes, I love it! Saw some pretty promising results after the first 4 weeks. By 8 weeks I had people commenting and asking if I'm using extensions or fake lashes. I usually use Maybelline Colossal Mascara and Benefit Bad Gal mascara (first one for length, second for volume) and I have to say, my eyelashes really do look fake. They almost touch my eyebrows, and forget about wearing glasses. I experienced some irritation on my lash line (redness that usually disappears by morning, slight darkening as well). No dark spots on my iris (I have very light blue eyes and this was my biggest concern). I use a very thin eyeliner brush and wash it well after each use.
At 12 weeks, using mascara is almost too much. I had my lashes tinted ($35 at my local salon) and now I go bare lashed while at work or at home. I still get compliments on them, and now people can see how long they actually are, as opposed to giving credit to a great mascara.
Would I recommend this product? Absolutely! The only other thing you need for great results is patience.
I would definitely buy it again, because you can get it for $40.00 on Amazon and Latisse is $100. but I have the same problem with it as I did with Latisse. 1. Medication - prescription-possible side effects
2. application - carry a brush with you, drop in a cap... couldnt they find a better way to apply this stuff?
3. I do get slightly irritated on my upper lashes. I still will buy it, even my favorite two products in eyelash growth are Lilash and Fysiko
