I used latisse for 6 months starting last summer and had fabulous results. My derm had only given me a scrip for 3 bottles, which I filled for about $118 @ costco(I think). I was also able to stretch each bottle out for two months. I stopped using latisse in the early part of winter and three months later all my beautiful lashes were gone. I wanted to try it again but didn't want to pay the $118 or go back and get another script. After some research I found out about careprost. I ordered it from adc and received it in a little over a week. I ordered 2 bottles bc shipping was high.
I have been using careprost for just 4 weeks now and am having equal results to that of latisse. The only side effects I am experiencing are a faint purple line by lash line. This line usually fades in time and itchy eyes sometimes. I also experiences these same symptoms with Latisse. It took time but with Latisse I saw maximum results bw 3 & 4 months. At 4 weeks with Careprost I am noticing more lashes but not more length. I am pretty sure that results with Careprost will be the same to Latisse. I will update in another 4 weeks.
**Update** 7/21/10Sorry review has taken longer. I am still using product and am still very happy with the results. I no longer get the faint purple line after applying and my eyes no longer itch. I am now just now noticing a nice length to my lashes and when I use mascara they really look great. The only thing I have noticed and it was the same with Latisse is my right eye grows faster. Its not noticable to others but I just can tell. I am almost done with my second bottle of careprost and I think this time Im really gonna stockup.
