Any try this? The aesteticians where I go for beauty treatments are using it and it seems to make quite a difference although, they also perm, tint dye their lashes etc. so its hard to tell exactly what makes them look so full and lush.

That stuff is like $150 a bottle...I'll probably never try it. I dye my lashes occasionally, and that makes a big difference.

I'm a total baby when it comes to getting my eyelashes dyed. I always twitch and the dye drips and stings and I wind up crying it all out , so I thought this might be a good alternative.

You can also find it cheaper on the internet and supposedly it lasts for severl months. Just wondering...

The active ingredient in it is prostaglandin, which is a part of prescription meds for glaucoma. One of its side effects is longer lashes, which this stuff kind of capitalizes on. But that also means that over time the "side" effects of this cosmetic stuff are often the same effect of glaucoma meds - darkening of the iris, changes in the pressure in your eyes, etc. I didn't think it was worth experimenting with when I read that.

I am cuious about these two products instead, but I haven't decided yet if I'm going to bother trying them:

KGF Growth Factor Serum

Ardell Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator

But either way, at least they're tons cheaper!

Yikes! No, doesn't sound worth experimenting with to me either.
