Hey, beautiful ladies out there! It has been very long since I was willing to write a review on a product I used and shared my experience of using Bimatoprost Ophthalmic Solution Careprost with you all. Here is a briefing of my experience:
I had very sparse and thin eyelashes. Although the lash hairs were long, they were very sparse and were not thick enough. I wanted to have eyelashes like that of movie stars thick as well as long. For the temporary purpose, I tried false eyelashes, but they were too tricky and time taking to apply with perfection.
So, I ordered Careprost to see whether it works as it is claimed in its advertisements. I bought two bottles from the online site and used it for a period spanning over four months.
The cost of the product: one bottle of Careprost (0.03%) of 3 ml is the US $ 20 and with a brush, it costs around the US $ 25. One bottle of Careprost, when used daily, lasts for around one month.
Active ingredient: Bimatoprost Ophthalmic Solution. It was used first used to treat certain eye diseases like glaucoma; later it was identified that the solution resulted in longer, thicker and darker eyelashes.
It was not that I jumped and used the product as soon as I received it. Earlier I was very apprehensive about using the product as I thought it would come with built-in applicators like other eyelash enhancing serums, but later I became comfortable with the application using the brush.
I used the product by applying a small drop of Careprost on the brush and then applying on the upper lash line. In just a week, I started noticing the difference within a week of daily use. Now, I have used two complete bottles of Bimatoprost Ophthalmic Solution, and I can say that I am more than satisfied with this product.
After 4-6 weeks of application of the product, I could find my eyelashes grown darker and thicker too. I applied the product on a daily basis for two months, and now I am using the product twice a week to maintain the desired lash length I got after using Careprost. I can say that Careprost is a cheaper and much more effective product available in the market to increase the lash length.
Here are the pros and cons of Bimatoprost Ophthalmic Solution (Careprost), that I found while using the product:
- Make your eyelashes grow longer, thicker and darker
- Causes no damage to your natural eyelashes
- Comes in a very compact bottle
- Less spillage
- Easily available online
- Not approved by FDA for eyelash enhancing properties
- Can cause side effects like discolouration of eyes, if it accidentally goes into the eyes for very long
- It is not a permanent solution when you stop using the product your lashes go back to their natural length
- You have to apply it daily till you get the desired length and then maintain the length by applying it twice a week.
