I have a drawer filled with makeup, gadgets and formulas for making eyelashes grow. I’m not one of the narcissists that always wants to look better and better. I just wanted eyelashes. Mine were so short and thin. My own mother noticed it and talked with me about it as she had the same issue. She used a product containing bimatoprost. It is a medication that is used in the treatment of glaucoma, but it also has been discovered to make your eyelashes grow. Though I could buy it over the counter as an eyelash growing preparation, I wanted to ask my eye doctor about it first. I was told to make sure to only use the applicators one time to avoid getting an eye infection. Apparently, people would reuse the individual use applicators, and that is not sterile. When you are putting something on that can get in your eyes, you want to be a sterile as possible.
Other than practicing common sense protection of my eyes, there was no other issue. I looked up the side effect potential. I am careful like that. Plus, I made sure to get bimatoprost that my mom was using as she did not have any trouble with it either. It took about four months, but I noticed personal results that I am pleased with. I would recommend taking a series of pictures from the same angle in the same lighting to let you see the real results you are getting. Looking closely at your eyelashes every day can get you to see anything from no results to extraordinary ones. Having picture proof is something you can even show others for proof of how bimatoprost is working for you and your eyelashes.
I do not keep using it. I got the results I wanted, and my eyelashes are okay for now. I do not know the growth cycle of them yet, and I am thinking I might need to reuse it later on.
