Review of Unlisted Brand Careprost (Generic Brand Latisse) by felgoj
I love this stuff! I have never used the brand Latisse but I use another brand (Lumigan eye drops by Allergan) of the identical generic ingredient (bimatoprost 0.03% in benzalkonium chloride aqueous base). The MD Rx for this is covered by my insurance for a $35 copay per bottle (each of which lasts @ least 4 months for me). Latisse is an out-of-pocket expense that is unreasonably priced IMO.
After using this nightly for 2-3 months I am now using it on a maintenance basis only once or maybe twice a wk. I was confident in using this right off the bat b/c prior to this I used the original Enormous Lash growth serum ($100) before the formula was changed (the prostaglandin growth ingredient was outlawed in OTC cosmetic products). So my lashes shriveled up to their original stubby length until I got a prescription for Lumigan.
These eye drops come in a dropper bottle, so I have to transfer it to a clean eyeliner container (which was difficult to find, so I sterilized an emptied transparent eyeliner container). Now I always see how much product I have left & whether it's getting mucky from repeated use.
I get lots of compliments on my long lashes now, especially when I wear mascara, & look more feminine w/prettier eyelashes to bat. :)
I especially love using this in the winter when I'm feeling blah. I used to stop & start, but now I just make sure to maintain weekly which is basically effortless - just have to remember not to forget!
Nowadays when I see girls w/monster long lashes, I KNOW they're using the same kind of stuff I am, lol (or at least most of them).
