What I experienced:
I initially was given this product for free from my eyelash extension specialist since I think she may have felt bad that my natural lashes got a bit destroyed by the extensive use of the extensions. I looked up the cost on the net, Amazon sells it for 50$ and I found some on Ebay going for about 30$. When I started using this, my lashes looked terrible, they were super short and less full, so I started using this everyday and I def. did have them grow back, and they grew back longer than they were normally, I noticed a definite difference when I would curl my lashes but I didn't notice a huge difference in the thickness. This absolutely requires patience as it took me 4 weeks to see the benefits. The only problem I had was I noticed that after about 3 months of using it, it didn't seem to be working too much anymore, maybe I wasn't applying it as religiously, but I also suspect that the potency of the ingredients may have oxidised and lost some of its power...I'm back on track of using it 2 times a day and I'll know then if the problem is that I stopped using it twice a day and went down to once a day, or if in fact, the product just stopped producing results and needs to be replaced before the content finishes.
I also recently started applying castor oil to my lashes as I've read that it is a natural way to enhance the look of your lashes. Soon I'll post on the results of that remedy.
