Most women don't have time to apply fake lashes every morning. We barely have enough time to use an eyelash curler. Have you ever thought of splurging on a vial of Latisse to get those celebrity lashes but it's just not in your budget? Or thought of eyelash extensions, but found out they are too high maintenance? Admit it, we all want that sexy flutter. No worries ladies! I have the solution for you.
The solution is Careprost. We can all thank my mother for finding this product!
Careprost is a Bimatoprost Ophthalmic solution used to treat glaucoma when the solution is actually dropped onto the eye itself . When the solution is applied with a brush applicator to the upper lashes, the active ingredient Bimatoprost acts by increasing the density, thickness, and length of the eyelashes.
I cannot say enough good about Careprost. I have been using Careprost for 6 months now and it truly does what it promises and it is EXTREMELY affordable. My mother and I were both Latisse junkies before finding Careprost. I have to say that Careprost gives your lashes the same results as Latisse if not better!
Is this product safe?
Careprost is NOT yet FDA approved. Latisse is the only product FDA approved for eyelash growth. Neither my mother nor I have run into any side effects that are possible with either of these medications. You have to remember both Latisse and Careprost are ophthalmic medications. With any medication there is always the chance of developing side effects. Possible side effects from Latisse and Careprost include dry eye, vision disturbances, burning of the eye, unfamiliar sensation, darkened eyelashes, conjuctival edema, discharge, infection, and possible change in the color of your iris. Will you be prone to side effects? It's hard to say. If you happen to develop any of these side effects, please contact your physician right away.
Where can I buy Latisse or Careprost?
You do not need a prescription for Latisse or Careprost to purchase them. Any plastic surgery center or skin renewal spa will have Latisse for sale ranging from 100-120$ per vial. I purchase Careprost at the alldaychemist.com. Six vials for less than 70$. A great way to split the vials up with your girlfriends to help with cost.
How often do I apply the solution and how long does a vial last?
Both Latisse and Careprost solutions are used once-a-day. You apply the treatment with a applicator brush to the upper lashes only, each evening before bed when your contacts are out. DO NOT apply in your eye or to the lower lid because hair growth outside the treatment area may occur. If you happen to get the solution in your eye, it is not expected to cause harm due to Latisse and Careprost both being ophthalmic solutions. You will see results with either product in 4-8 weeks with the best results in 3-4 months. If you decide to stop using either solution, your eyelashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months. Either vial will last you 3 months when used daily.
What about Eyelash Extensions?
Do you want BOMBSHELL peepers? The Kardashians wear lash extensions like we wear mascara. There are three types of lash extensions with sizes ranging from 6mm-17mm. Once your lash artist selects the correct ones, the lashes are applied one at a time using a semi-permanent glue (there are different types of glue based on your sensitivity) that will not irritate the eye or damage your natural lashes. The first application can take up to 2 hours and set you back 250-350$. That's not all. Lash extensions need maintenance by a lash artist every 3-5 weeks setting you back another 150$ per visit. They will fall out naturally if you are looking to get them done initially for your wedding or an event.
