I read about this product in a magazine (LouLou - think) a few years ago. It had strong reviews and got me interested, even though I have very long lashes naturally. It was pricey, so I thought I'd look for it on eBay and if I found a deal I'd give it a try. Well, once I started using it, I noticed a substantial difference in about a week. For me, it's totally worth the cost.

I quite like this product!
I use this on my eye lashes every night and have noticed a vast improvement the length of lashes and the density of lashes on my lash line.
I purchased this product on 27 April 2010 and it's still going strong - it has lasted for over 3 months!
I also used this on my brows and this pretty much saved my brows after I overplucked them. I will definitely buy this product again.

This product is not worth its money. I purchased this product because i recently had eye lash extentions done and they ruined my lashes.
I pretty much was left with week fine hardly any lashes, and saw this product and thought what did i have to loose.
The product is hard to apply the comb does not evenly distribute on the lashes, i have used the product 4 times and noticed a reaction to my upper lid. Not only did it irratate my lids, as well as under my eyes it was itchy and puffy.
From that experience i have not used it again. Not worth the money.

I will warn anyone that if you use this on your lashes but get it on the either the top or bottom waterline, it WILL sting and you'll need to rinse you eye area out immediately. I once poked my eye with the applicator (being a little clumsy) and dear lord I nearly cried my heart out. Anyway, this does work but it took me about 4-6 weeks to see any difference. While it hasn't given me wonderful lashes nor the thicker brows I need (I'm Asian and have extremely sparse facial hair) I can certainly tell it helped with the growth of my lashes on my lower lashline.
For $42 I wouldn't repurchase - I'm going to try some cheaper options like Ardell Lash & Brow Growth Accelerator or Mavala Double Lash. But I've heard better things about other lash growth products, I don't think this is worth it at all.

I requested this as a gift from my partner last Christmas as I wanted to try it out. It's a good product for conditioning lashes after the stripping they go through when removing mascara. It also provides some growth stimulant but it has to be used consistently every night (before bed on a cleansed face) for at least two weeks to see any difference. I found it worked better when I used the end of the comb applicator to massage the formula into my lash line (I only did this on the top lid) where you would usually put eyeliner. I also put it on my actual eyelashes to help condition the lashes that I already had. I didn't need to put the formula in my brows so I can't comment on how it affects brow hair growth. The only downside is the consistency with which you need to use it to see any results. I didn't use it consistently long enough (I kept forgetting), to comment on long term effects (1 month +). I'd definitely buy it again as it is a great alternative to (far) more expensive lash growth stimulants.

I used this every night for a 6 weeks hoping to thicken brows and lashes but this has not changed them at all. I still have the exactly the same thin patchy brows and long but fine and sparse lashes.
The plastic applicator comb is hard to use and boy does this product sting when it gets into my eyes. Probably because of the lemon extracts. And why did they put all those parabens in it? It bombs that I actually paid NZ$52 for this useless product.

Compared to its competitors this is CHEAP. I'd say a 1/4 of the price.
It was recommended to me by the International Eye Brow Champion (can you believe there is such thing??), Jo Miles.
I've been using it for a few months now and when I wear mascara my eyelashes easily touch my eyebrows. I have seen a difference and would repurchase.
It didn't sting at all on me.
Plus, it seems to be lasting a long time.

I bought this to thicken and lengthen my eyelashes. I did not use this on my brows. I found that this product performed as advertised. Within a week of use as directed (apply nightly) my lashes were noticebly longer and thicker. Additionally, I had new lash growth along a bare patch I have always had on my left lower lash line. I found that I had to be careful when applying this because if I applied it too close to my waterline it stings so badly that I would have too wash my eyes, so I took a star off for that. This problem is easily solved by applying the treatment to the upperlashes using a downward motion with the eye closed (instead of going underneath the lash go on top). Overall, I was very impressed with this product. It does what it claims and yes, I would purchase again.

I bought this product in Feb 08.....my lashes are short, not sparse. I am always looking for something to add volume and length. This product is the thrid lash growth stimulator I have tried, first being Lipocils, Talika, and Ardell's. I was "faithful" in applying this as directed, every single night. The verdict......no growth, no volume.
As a conditioning product, I guess this is ok, but the down side to this, is it BURNS!! Then my eyes are tearing.....I used this consistently for 5 months. If all you want is conditioning, save your self some money and buy Ardells, it is just as good for "conditioning". I have recently purchased Dr Denese Eyelash and Brow treatment, a review will follow for this one after I have given it a fair trial:))

I had originally bought this for my lashes, however when I read earlier reviews of how well it worked on eyebrows I decided to give it a try as I had scarring around the end area of my left brow . Well, considering it was a scar my expectations may have been too high, but I can say I have seen results in other areas of my brows where the hair was thinner. So yes, the product does work, just give it a week or so. Since I've only been using the product for that long it's possible that it could help hair grow over bald patches from scarring, but I'll have to wait another week or two to give an update on that.
As for lashes, I would use this as a nighttime treatment only. The product didn't sting my eyes, but after an hour or so of applying it I washed my face, forgetting completely about the lash conditioner and for 20 minutes or so had slightly irritated eyes. But as long as one is careful and keeps it out of the eyes it works ok. You won't get thicker lashes, but it will strengthen them to help them grow longer. I have another lash conditioner from dermitage that I prefer to use, but I will sometimes rotate as this works pretty well too (and is much less expensive)
My only issue was the wand, I felt that applying it to the eyebrows was difficult and took some getting used to- especially if you're trying to apply it to certain small areas and you end up getting a big glob of it on your brows. (which isn't too much of a problem, but keep in mind the product works, so too many accidental slip ups and you'll get catarpillar brows)
The only reason I would not purchase again is because just one is enough. Overall a good product that does work.

I just got this today and just put it on for the first time. I used it only on my lashes. The applicator is a comb and the stuff goes on thick and white so you can see it. It is not clear like the Talkia Lipocils I usually use. I was scared at first since a previous reviewer said it really stung, but it doesn't sting me at all. So far so good. I will add more info in a few weeks since I obviously can't say for sure how well it works. I am also using revitalash. That DOES work :)

I wanted to wait a full 2 weeks before reviewing this product, since it claims to "restore over plucked brows" within that time period. I can actually say that this helped--better than Talika Lipocils for me. I don't have Brooke Shield's brows, but they're better than before!! For the naysayers, this formula is based in castor oil, which has been proven to renew hair growth. I was only using it on my eyebrows, since I'd like to thicken them up a bit. After a few days of using this formula, I noticed little dots of hair beginning to grow where they hadn't grown for a long time. I'm starting to get back my natural arch, which is great. Also, the comb/wand applicator really helps to push the product into your brow line (this may also exfoliate a bit, helping the product absorb better).
I was surprised at the previous review of this product, since this formula did not sting or irritate my skin in the least. Actually, it's rather creamy & really conditioned my brows & surrounding skin. Since the ingredients are not posted anywhere online, I thought I'd include them here for reference:
Water, Caster seed oil, Dipropylene glycol, Phenethyl benzoate, Polysorbate 20, Pentylene glycol, Ethoxydiglycol, Hydrogenated lecithin, Inositol, Glyceryl laurate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Brassica Campestris (Rapeseed) Sterols, Xanthan gum, Lemon peel extract, Hexapeptide-17, Biotin, Gynostemma Pentaphyllum Leaf extract, Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, Folic acid, N-Acetyl cysteine, Lemon fruit extract, Butylene glycol, Glycerin, Cetearyl alcohol, BHT, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben.
The parabens in this product would probably prevent me from buying this again. Also, if you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you can just pick up some castor oil at the drugstore. But for the convenience of this, I would definitely recommend it.

Holy hell does this stuff sting! I do not know if it is different from the ModelCo Lash Boost reviewed by others, but it is definitely more expensive. Having read the lash boost reviews and now using the lash + brow stuff, I think they are the same. The lash + brow is white (like the boost was described) but the applicator sounds different. In the Lash + Brow it is like a tiny comb.
In any case, I am returning this to Sephora asap. I usually use Talika Lipocils (with excellent results) but never liked the mascara wand type applicator so thought I'd give this a try. Ouch, ouch, ouch!!! The formula stings like no one's business. And I do not have sensitive eyes at all! Total waste of money and possibly dangerous for eyelashes (safe eye products should not sting...not to this degree). It should be pulled off the shelves immediately!!!
ETA: The 'stinging' I experienced was when I applied this to my lashes as directed. When I returned it to Sephora, the SA said it probably stung because it has lemon extract in it. Either way, I would not put this stuff on my EYELASHES with a gun held to my head. Having said that, I doubt I would experience any stinging if applied to eyebrows or skin, like the reviewer above. In other words, the reviewer above misread my post....I applied the product to my lashes, not my skin or eyebrows. So, if you're looking for something to grow EYEBROW hair, it may be ok. If you want to grow eyelashes, try Talika Lipocils (for lashes).
