Careprost from alldaychemist......r/o
 
Has anyone used this product to make their eyelashes grow? It is the equivalent to Latisse but less expensive.

i don't know about this product at all. you might find some reviews on www.makeupalley.com

ardell (the folks that make false lashes) has a growth product. i bought some from sally's for $15 w/ my coupon. not sure if it works yet...just wanted something to strengthen lashes and maybe give my brows a fullness so we'll see.

also www.makeupartistchoice.com has a lash/brow product. many of their products are good quality.

good luck

Careprost is another brand name for Latisse (generic name is bimatroprost). I have been using bimatroprost for my eyelashes since last April, and, yes, it does make them grow. I wouldn't say my lashes are super-duper-lush, but they are as least as nice as they were in my youth (I'm 48, and my lashes had gotten very skimpy). Bimatroprost is really the only thing that makes lashes grow. Any of those over-the-counter or expensive cosmetic products do.not.work.

I've purchased Careprost from alldaychemist.com. Their products are authentic, but they're from India, not the USA, so you should be aware of that. Their overseas shipping is high, but it's a flat rate of $25 to the USA no matter how much you buy, so when I purchase from them, I usually buy a lot to make the shipping worthwhile. I buy my Retin-A from them also.

Do you not order from MedsMex anymore? I looked at alldaychemist and they don't seem to have Retin A in the .1% cream that I am currently using. Do they not carry it or are they out?

RedCatWaves 01-11-2010 07:38 PM

I don't use medsmex.com anymore. They raised their prices and they don't carry everything that I need. ADC has 0.05% Retin-A cream and 0.1% micro-gel. I use them both.

alisons79 01-11-2010 07:48 PM

Is the Micro gel different than the cream? If I use .1% cream Retin A, would using .1% micro gel be the same?

RedCatWaves 01-11-2010 08:19 PM

Yeah, it's pretty much the same. The "gel" is microspheres in a cream base, so it looks like cream anyway. It's supposed to be less irritating for most people.

Aren't any of you worried about the side effect that they report can happen....where it can permanently darken your eye color? I understand this to be a very rare side effect but it is still a possibility.

That is the ONLY thing that has stopped me from using this stuff.

Nope. Not worried a bit.

The side effect of darkened irises happens in less than 3% of people who use bimatroprost for glaucoma. They are instilling the liquid directly into the eye. People using bimatroprost for lash growth are only applying to the lash roots. In the studies that have been done for lash growth, none of the subjects have had darkened irises. They don't think the risk is anywhere near the 3% that happens with glaucoma patients, but they mention it just in case someone eventually has that happen. If it turns out to be me...well, I'll just live with it. I've had my green eyes for almost 50 years and I love them, but I would gladly trade them for brown eyes with nice eyelashes.

I can recommend a reputable pharmacy (Lumigan Careprost) - http://en.pharm4all.com Good price and quality.

I order Renova from ADC. To save on shipping costs, I order with a group.
Here's the woman's website She's from makeupalley but is no longer allow to organize thru makeupalley.

I've been using the RetinA cream .5% for over 6 months (this time around.. I've used Renova on and off for over 5 years. I'm 36) and am not noticing any difference under my eyes. I have some fine lines. I'm adamant about sun protection, etc. Think I'd get a better response with a different product?
I use a BHA or AHA lotion daily. Then apply the Renova over it. I'm always flaky under my eyes despite exfoliation and moisturizing... I can quit the BHA or AHA and even the Renova and still battle with the flakes. Any ideas?
Thanks

You shouldn't really use acids in the eye area.

You could try adding a copper peptide to your Retin-A regimen. In the winter, I mix CP with Retin-A before applying. The CP helps build collegen and really helps reduce the flaking from Retin-A. I'm not sure it helps much with fine lines, although there are some studies that say it does.

I use Super CP Serum from Dr. Pickart's Skin Biology, but there are others:

Warning!!!! Do not buy from AllDayChemist! I just bought from AllDayChemist - Prescription drugs, Generic medicines, online indian Pharmacy and highly recommend you find another company. The company is from India and the regulations there are more relaxed than in the U.S. so that is why we can get Careprost from there without a prescription (as well as other prescription products). Since they are more relaxed in their regulations, they give you expired products and do not have the obligation to refund your money or provide replacement bottles. I have emailed them photos of my expired bottles as proof. They didn't want to correct the problem. Unfortunately, when I was ordering their credit card processing was down, so I mailed them a check instead. As a result of writing them a check, they gave me a discount. AllDayChemist already cashed my check and the bank can not do anything about it. I will never use them again. Please find another provider for Careprost.
