For those that do not know what lilash is here is a quick overview. It is a product that stimulates and encourages lash or eyebrow growth. It claims to lengthen and thicken your eyelashes in 4-6 weeks. On their website they assure you that the product is "physician formulated & clinically teste, safe for even the most sensitive eyes, the only non-irritating lash conditioner, less natural breakage than extensions". RRP is US$139.97 so not a cheap buy. You really need to be desperate for long lashes to spend this amount. I was! And I still am but with more products out in the market now I definitely won't be going back to Lilash. I have to admit though Lilash has done WONDERS for my eyelashes. They use to be short and unflattering, now they are noticeably longer but unfortunately not thicker!
In the recent email that I got from my seller I was inform that they do not sell Lilash anymore. This is due to the overwhelming amount of people complaining of the side effects. The side effects noted are darkening of the eyelid skin, eye vein distension, redness, swelling, itching, eye pain, and lash fallout. Some claim that after 2 years of use their eyelashes start to fall out (my seller included). I myself have noticed darkening of the eyelid area, redness, itchiness and hair growth in unwanted areas like below my eyes (towards cheek). My lashes now are still long but I feel not as dramatic as when I was using the first tube. Could this be because I am getting more resilient to the product? I don't know. What I do know is that after I finish my current tube I am switching! Lilash costs too much to just throw out mid tube. Even through all the side effects I do not want to give up long lashes. The things we put ourselves through for beauty, shocking!
Please for anyone that is considering Lilash do your research before purchasing! There are other products out there that are less aggressive and cheaper. When I 1st purchased Lilash it was relatively new so although I did A LOT of research there weren't many, if any, bad reviews or feedback. However now that it has been on the market for at least 2 years there are a lot more information about the product on the internet.
Other products that you could look into: My seller informs me that MD Lash is as good as Lilash but without the side effects. Clinical tests have shown a 48% increase in lash length in just 4 weeks. Theres also Marini Lash, Revitalash, Lashfood and some people have even claimed that Castor oil on the eyelashes boost growth and thickness?
If anyone has had experience of eyelash stimulator products please let me know. I'm very interested in hearing your story. Thanks for reading :)
