have been using this for about a week and i have seen a difference. I have used it on my brows and lashes. I have seen a difference. I use it every night and sometimes an extra in the morning. I dont use mascara, except for on occassions. I have short "asian" lashes. I think this may make a difference. I can see a slight difference in length and volume. The first day I got a little in my eye, and it got a little irritate. It didnt last that long though. I found i at Rite-Aid for $3.99.
My brows have patches on the end with sparse hair, and i am seeing a difference already.
I will update after a few more weeks.
I've been using this for about 4 weeks now, and I think I'm starting to see a change. Initially, I got this because I wanted to keep the lashes that I do have to use as a conditioner because a lot of them seemed to fall out when I remove my makeup at night. However, I'm not going to lie- I frequently forget to use this, so my use has been roughly every other night. But I have seen a difference. My lashes don't fall out any more, and my top lashes are definitely a minuscule amount longer. The biggest difference has been my lower lashes. I literally used to have about 4 lower lashes on each eye, something handed down to me by my mother (who at 50, lost all of her lower lashes completely, and that's what had me worried). But now, I actually have a row of lower lashes, and I do hope to keep them. I believe that if I committed to using this every night, I'd see more of a difference. I think this product has been DC'd by the company, which is really too bad because it was cheap and effective.
Well when i first got this product I thought it did nothing. I used it for about 2 weeks and it seemed to me that nothing happened. Then I took a break and started using it again. And i must say I love it. With that being said this product did not grow new lashes for me. What it did was kept the ones I had and made them so that they did not fall out. naturally we shed lashes and with this product i noticed i was not shedding any. The result is A lot more lashes than normal. So my advice is to use the product a while and you will see resultsss.
I love this product!! You can't beat the price.
I bought four from drugstore.com as backups because it's always sold out in drugstores.
I have short asian lashes and after using this they're longer and stronger. The only thing I don't like is waking up with crusty eyes from the residue. The smell doesn't bother me as much and one tube lasts a pretty long time.
I put on a couple layers on clean lashes at night so I don't get mascara flecks into the tube.
I also use it on my brows sometimes to shape them. Overall, great product!
This product is actually not bad.
I'm 100% Asian. However, I don't suffer lashes and eye-shape problem like other Asians. I can say my lashes are pretty long. But they are extremely thin and spare, and my brows are even worse. By looking at my picture you can tell why I want a treatment for lashes and brows so bad. http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd206/anhthu777/SDC11220.jpg
I've been using this gel for 3 weeks. After the first week I could say my lashes grew a bit longer. But then, I saw nothing more after the 2nd week. The good thing is it does give some length for my lashes and my brows too. That's actually surprising for under $5 (ridiculously cheap price). But it does not give any thickness for fullness. My lashes are still too thin that I can hardly see the length unless I put the mirror against my nose to look at them. And since it doesn't give thickness, it's useless for my brows. Who want length for eyebrows? My lashes still fall off usually, and I even noticed that my brows started falling off more than usual.
I would continue using this until the 6th week to decide if it's work well but it irritates my eyes really bad. I even got some tiny acne around my eyelids. So I guess I give up on it.
Bottom line, I'm not saying that this does not work. It just doesn't work well on me.
So I'm kind of weird, but usually asians have short straight lashes. I have pretty long lashes (people ask if they're fake) that aren't stick straight. Most of my friends would probably kill me if they found out i was using a lash growth product lol! like when I wanted to get shu uemura falsies they were like "say what?!" I'm not about to go out and get a prescription for latisse. however, I pride myself on my lashes and when I have one of those days where like 3 lashes fall out, its like time stops around me and I freak out at the loss of these precious things. my lashes are long but i don't have a lot! This is where ardell comes to the rescue. I can honestly say that after 1 1/2 weeks of use, I have seen an improvement! they are longer, but more than that, I have more lashes! its amazing and I'm not quite sure how this works since it's like mostly castor oil, but i have this whole other row of lashes and spots that used to have no hair have hair sprouting out. maybe its cuz theres less lash fallout so the lashes that would have replaced the fallout just join in on the fun.
couple of things though: do NOT put on before putting in ur contacts. I did this and i got oil on my contacts and had blurred vision the entire day. also dont sleep with your contacts in (not that you should) and have this on. same results.
also put this on my brows and i got pimples. I never get pimples on my brows, so I'm gonna say ardell is the culprit.
also ive only been using this for a short-ish time, so i dont know the full extent of its potential/if it's gonna turn evil on me. but so far its pretty cheap and it delivers. sounds like a winner to me!
This is my everyday "mascara" now that I use latisse/lumigan. It is all I need to enhance my lashes and it keeps them soft and conditioned. I use it to groom my brows too. I love this product but only gave it 3 lippies because I do not think it, on it's own, does a thing to accelerate growth (you need latisse for that).
I've used this product for years now, and, yes, it did make my lashes grow in length (although it took 3-4 weeks for me to notice any results). I use it as a mascara primer and also a gel to set my brows. I will continue to repurchase this jewel!
I've been using this product for about a month. My lashes have become longer, bare spots have filled in, and I'm showing the beginnings of a second row of lashes about the first. How can you beat a product that is not overpriced, not over-hyped, not over-packaged, and it works?
Okay, so this really works if you stop wearing mascara for a while. I find that mascara breaks down lashes. In the summer I didn't bother going out wearing mascara regularly and applied this product nightly. I noticed a week or two of use that my lashes appeared fuller and longer. It's not as effective if you wear mascara regularly. I wear mascara pretty much everyday and the only effect I get from this product right now is that it makes my lashes stronger I guess? Before ever discovering this product when I would remove my mascara at night several lashes fell out. Now I rarely ever have lashes fall out when I remove my make up. This product is dirt cheap and I'll continue buying it.
