I have put a picture here showing my results after 3 months. You can really tell they are longer and have new growth on the inner and outer edges. Now for the review... Results: Yes, my lashes are longer and a bit fuller only after 3 months. I know I will need to use this forever to keep the results because if I discontinue use my lashes will go back to their natural growth cycle. So I probably will use this for a while. My lashes hardly fall out now and they look almost fake (in a good way) when I wear mascara. Someone actually asked me if I had false lashes on. Also, my eyelashes have always been straight and this did not change that much so far. Side Effects: The only side effects I have noticed is the reddening around the eyelid and under and the eye sensitivity the first week or so. The reddening/darkening does not bother me, however, because I have dark circles from heredity so I have to use cover up regardless. The sensitivity and dryness did bother me, but it did go away after a couple weeks. Packaging: I gave the packaging a 4 because though I am not low yet on the product (it's supposed to last 6 months and I've been using it about 3) I can tell it may be difficult to get the product out at 5 or 6 months of use. Price: Here is the big CON... it's so expensive. It's $139 on their website, but when I purchased it there was a discount code and I paid $118. Yikes! Hopefully it does last the full 6 months. I'm not sure how much lash extensions cost, but I bet this is cheaper than those.
My hair has seen so many straighteners and relaxers it is crazy. I have tried the Keratin and Japanese straighteners. I love the Japanese, but my hair started to feel the damage and it got too expensive. This relaxer is great! I personally had my hair stylist do the process for me. It costs more, but it is worth it, believe me! As you're applying the first part of the product it hardens almost like clay. I could only imagine how difficult it would have been to do on my own. I purchased the one for delicate/fine hair. I have a lot of hair, but the actual strands are fine. The entire process took about 1.5 hours. When she was finished, the texture felt very dry and straw like. I was really scared at first because I hated the texture. Then, after the first wash it was amazing! I shampooed twice and conditioned 3 times. The result was soft, shiny, frizz-free hair! I let it air dry and it was beachy type waves and soft! I love it! It is not cheap, but I would definitely repurchase and use this relaxer. It is all natural and so far did not seem to damage my hair.
I have been meaning to write this review for a very long time. I have been using this foundation for a little less than a year. Let me preface this by saying that I believe I have tried every type of foundation under the sun. I had acne when I was younger up until my early 20's. I am still prone to breakouts, especially using the wrong foundation and products. I have used drug store brand foundations (Maybelline, Revlon, etc) and top of the line foundations (Lancome, Estee Lauder, Yves Saint Laurant, etc). I have also tried different mineral make up such as Every Day Minerals, Bare Escentuals, Pure Luxe, etc. Wow, I've wasted a lot of money! This foundation covers most of my scars, goes on silky and smooth and looks natural. It dries mostly matte, but does not dry my skin. Since I have combination skin I have this problem with matte foundations. It has not caused me to breakout at all. I have actually received compliments on my skin while using this foundation. The only negative comments I would have would be that it is hard to get the foundation out when you are getting low. You do have the option to open the top and pour it out. I do love the pump style bottle though. Also, it does last pretty long but it will have a little transfer as your oils build up throughout the day. I expect that anyway from any foundation, but it does stay fairly matte and natural looking. I have never used a foundation that did not transfer. If they say they don't transfer at all they are lying. One more thing, the color selection is not great, but I have learned to mix two different shades. When I am tan I mix golden peach and peach bisque. When I am not so tan I mix white peach and peach bisque. Works great! By the way, I am a teacher so I do have long days so this is my honest review from wearing this every day for almost a year. PS- I love it and as long as it is being made I will never try another foundation again!
