Ok. I’ve been using this for a little over two months (photos posted show before/after results). It works, but I’m not overwhelmed. It’s possibly because my lashes really need more thickness than length, or that I’ve just gradually gotten used to the results over time.
I wasn’t overly concerned about my eyebrows, which have always been a bit sparse at the “tail”, but of course I applied this to them as well, and I’m very pleased with those results.
Overall a good product that delivers results as promised with minimal side effects (may be a bit irritating as would anything on sensitive eyes).

This stuff actually works! I've never used an eyelash serum before and didn't quite know what to expect. I decided to give it a go after my lashes were becoming weak when noticing individual lashes falling out when taking off eye makeup. I have been using religiously every night for about 2 months now and my lashes are definitely so much longer and stronger! They also appear more voluminous due to the growth. I definitely notice a difference and although it's pricey I think it's worth it as you don't use as much mascara and eye makeup becomes quicker in the morning.

I have green eyes and didn't want to possibly endanger my natural color by using Latisse. Instead, I've been using this product nightly for about 3 months, and I would estimate that my lashes are now about 1/3 longer and thicker-looking than they were naturally. I would say that I began to notice a significant positive difference after about a month. I've stopped using eye makeup entirely because I am so happy with how my lashes now look! There is now a slight reddening/darkening at my lash line (I have extremely sensitive skin), but it's not bothersome.

The first tube I had workd great. The next one did absolutely nothing.
Curious, I looked up the ingredients and discovered along the way that older tubes (before 2014) contained the same active ingredient (although not in as high a quantity) as Latisse, a very effective prescription-only eyelash serum.
Allergan, the makers of Latisse, got wind of this and threatened to sue the company that makes RapidLash. The ingredient that made RapidLash do what it's supposed to do is now gone, so if you're lucky enough to wind up with a tube that was manufactured before 2014, it will work. If not, then you've just taken that $50 and basically run it through a shredder.

A woman in my local Sephora store told me to try applying castor oil every night before bedtime, applying it to the lashline with a cotton swab or eyeliner brush (there are lots of tutorials online). She said one of her friends who had had skimpy, thinning eyelashes tried this, and she could actually see the difference in her friend's eyelashes after a few weeks. She couldn't recommend anything else that worked better (including any of the eyelash serums offered in her place of employment).

So hey! I got myself some cold-pressed hexane-free castor oil at the local natural food co-op and will be trying it on my lashes. It sounds a lot safer than a tube of chemical glop that doesn't work anyhow, AND it's a tiny fraction of the cost.

BEFORE: My lashes were dark at the roots, but really stubby and short, basically not visible because they were so short.
BOTTOM LINE: gave me a triple row (before I had a double row) of dark, longer lashes.

Read on for more details...
AFTER 6 weeks of use, they have become something closer to average length. I tried Rapidlash on one side only to avoid being tricked into believing something that wasn't really true, but I can see a difference on the treated side. There is a thicker row of lashes, and they are somewhat longer, so it shows up especially if I use mascara. So far no negative side effects, no irritation, redness etc
Will continue to use to see if they can transform into Elizabeth Taylor-like lashes, but don't hold your breath - I started out with very short lashes.
So far, solid good progress, but nothing dramatic.
AFTER 10 WEEKS: definitely longer, just a little longer than average now (remember I started out with stumpy short lashes, so there was a long way to catch up)
Gonna keep going to see how long they will get....so far, so good!

AFTER 14 WEEKS; There's for sure a change...Longer lashes now with a triple row of lashes, but individual lashes are not much thicker (sigh..can't have everything, probably the diameter of individual lashes is genetically determined)
AFTER 5 MONTHS: Nice and long, quite a difference between the 2 sides, but since the individual lashes (although I have a lots more of them!) are individually thin and have pale tips I have to use mascara for evenings - I use CoverGirl Professional waterproof and it is the bomb. Never smudges, once I fell asleep overnight after a great party without taking off my mascara (rarely happens, but still, my bad) and it still did not smudge.

This stuff is amazing and it works! I just finished my first bottle and it lasted about two months. I use a good amount though, every night, top and bottom. I also use a bit on my brow where I have a bald patch. I know this one is different from the brow one and I believe it's probably less strong but I didn't want to buy the brow one just for that small spot since I do have really full brows aside from that spot. I also wonder if they'll ever grow in that spot since castor and other things seem to not work. I also have one tail end that's less full and I use it there and I have seen some improvement there.

But aside from all that...for lashes it's been really amazing. I will admit my lashes weren't short or sparse (maybe because I use vaseline with cocoa butter every night for years) but who doesn't want a little more!? In just two months I see growth and so do others. I will say that there was a *slight* burning sensation a few times when I started this. I wasn't sure if it was from this or other things/being tired, but a few friends mentioned it as well. Nothing really obvious or irritated, so if you do get red or itchy I would definitely stop. Mine was verrryy mild but I wanted to mention. For what it's worth, castor didn't grow my lashes either and gave me styes. :\


I also wanted to talk about volume vs length. I don't really have the problem of not having volume from this like others do. I think it does add a little of volume, but I don't know how it works with our bodies and hair follicles (if you only have so many, and therefore this can only add length) but I did have one area that was more sparse on bottom and I feel it's filling in a little. I think that will take longer to see though, since they have to start from nothing as opposed to the rest which is growing just a little but we see it quicker. Also, compared to the rest, it will look shorter and maybe never 'catch up' since the rest are growing next to it. And I do agree, I prefer volume as well. But if your lashes are short or even if they aren't, some extra length is nice and then mascara adds volume on top of that. My friend that recommended it has been using it for years and she has crazy long (but not too thin) ones, everyone asks her if hers are fake lashes. Even with latisse users, you do sometimes see length that's too thin and it gets weird. But you can stop when it feels right. I don't know if it goes back or just stops there, but you also don't have to keep applying if they are getting too long. But personally, I find that this creates a really nice effect.

But I feel prettier without makeup now, too. I used to choose mascara as my only one item of makeup if I had to choose, because it just pops the eyes without looking weird when you're obviously not done up. But now I really have that without and with mascara it's even more so. Especially the last few lashes have a few extra long strands which adds such a pretty look. I bought two more and I plan on using them continuously. I will update if I get weirdly long and have to stop, but I sort of doubt it.

Update: I still like this but it definitely gives me small styes occasionally. They're not too bad so I don't really mind but that could be a deal breaker for some. I also sort of feel like there's a stopping point with this where you don't see much more growth. Maybe that's just me. I still use it though.

Note: intended use was for eyebrows. Rapidbrow isn't sold in Canada I guess and was told the formula is the same.

edit: I've come up with a good way to prolong this product while maintaining lash growth (or at least prevent them from falling out?). Every other day, using castor oil/emu oil combination instead. In fact, the growth has increased since I started this!>
--

It has been just about 3 weeks since I began using this (once or twice a day, and skipped a few days once in a while). I have seen results in growth and a second row of lashes has began growing above the first. Even without mascara the difference is obvious. So yes--it does what it says.

So far results are the same as they would have been had I used castor oil/coconut oil combo. Of course, that is far cheaper.
Will continue use. Have been using alongside emu oil to aid in absorption (and also because emu oil is said to aid in stimulating follicles). Unsure about repurchase at the moment.

Soo I learned a lesson here: A) This really works for both my eyelashes and eyebrows, and B) I...actually DON'T like my natural lashes when they're super long. After a few weeks, I put this on my eyebrows only because it was getting difficult to put on mascara. This stuff gave my lashes a lot of length, but didn't make them any more voluminous, which is why I still wanted to wear mascara. If given the choice - and if I could only have one - I would prefer volume over length. So, I used this up on my brows, which looked fabulous (finally, after months with no regrowth). I did not repurchase after I ran out, and my brows still look better than before! My lashes, however, are back to normal. The only reason I'm not repurchasing this is that I'm planning to have my eyebrows microbladed, so I don't want any "extra" growth (which may not come back in the future) to influence the artist's work. If I really want to change up my lashes again, I'll just do extensions.

I have been using this for about 6 weeks. I have only used it on my lashes because my eyebrows are already bushy enough without wanting to add more length or thickness. I have pretty average length, light colored, fine, eyelashes which while not sparse are not really plentiful either.

So I have used this on my lashes every night for about 6 weeks and I definitely have longer lashes. Note, I said longer, not thicker. I am happy that they are longer but they also could be on the verge of spidery, because they are fine, which is also not a great look. I make sure to use a very thickening mascara (plus sometimes a lash primer) and lots of it, especially at the roots, when I put makeup on.

My take on this product (and this is an experiment with only one participant so take it as you will) is that it might increase the length of the lashes you already have but it probably won't make them more plentiful or more thick and luscious. I would estimate that my lashes are about 20-30% longer, which I love, but the hairs are not thicker nor do I think that there are more of them. I will also say that I do feel a little bit of a numbing feeling on my lash line right after I apply it. Nothing that lasts but it is noticeable to me so if you are sensitive you should take note.

So I am going to continue to keep using this product. I like my longer lashes and with the right mascara and tight lining they do look long and flattering and frame my eyes. I just don't know whether you can expect to grow lashes where you didn't have any already. Just my 2 cents. YMMV. Cheers.
