So I Placed My Orders....

I ordered Latisse and Retin A from the website RCW recommended. I couldn't believe the Latisse is only $10. My friend is getting hers from her dermo for $80 per bottle. I then ordered joan rivers a good hair day and a good brow day. I can't wait to get them in.

    I'm curious about the latisse. Please post back with your results. Hope it works great for you.
  • LotsawavesLotsawaves Posts: 8,660Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    I will. RCW has been using this for awhile and is getting great results. I got the order website from her.

    Lotsa, did you actually have to provide them with a prescription, as per their instructions? I don't have one. I get it directly from my dermatologist. I could get a script if I need one to order from alldaychemist. It sure would be nice to get it cheaper!

    No prescription was needed for either item.

    One more question - did you use a standard credit card with no worries?

    Yes. RCW has been ordering from the site for a while and she hasn't had any problems.

    I'm really liking Joan Rivers Good Hair Day. It took me a couple of tries to get it right. I wasn't using enough. Not only does it make my hair look thicker, but it covers the gray at my hairline. Normally I would be coloring my hair this weekend, but I don't need to. I can save money and time using this product.

    So, it will be 2 weeks since I started using the Latisse. I can't tell a difference until I put on mascara, then BAM! I have long lashes. I'm really loving this stuff. I can't wait to see the end result after 12 weeks. I may have trouble wearing my sunglasses. :glasses7:

    Lotsa,

    I just placed an order from alldaychemist for the generic Latisse. How long did it take you to get your order? Do you use it on both upper and lower lashes? Also what about eyebrows?

    I'm super excited! I hope it works for me.

    I can't remember exactly, but I probably got it within a week.

    I'm using it on both uppers and lowers and my brows.

    The commercial doesn't say anything about the lowers, but it shows the lowers getting longer, as well, so I'm assuming they are using it there, as well.

    We'll have to report our progress with each other. I'll be 2 weeks ahead of you.

  • eche428eche428 Posts: 2,782Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    Sounds good to me. I'm so looking forward to having eyebrows and lower lashes again. I mean I have brows but the inside is thinning so much. I'm the opposite of a unibrow! And I've always had really really sparse lower lashes as an adult.

    Yea, as I've gotten older I have to fill in my brows more. My lower lashes are almost nonexistent and I have/had thin short upper lashes. My friend who has been using latisse for awhile told me she also saw a difference 1st when she put on her mascara. I don't usually wear mascara on my lower lashes for fear it will smudge, but I think I'll try it tmrw.

    I'm really excited to see the results after 12 weeks.

    Finally got my shipment today (took forever). Now I have to figure out how to use it. How often do you apply it?

    I apply latisse once per day, usually at bedtime, but sometimes in the morning if I've forgotten the night before.

    I dispense a half-drop onto a clean surface (I use a tiny mirror) and use a clean eyeliner brush to apply that half-drop to both eyes. I apply to both upper and lower lashes, even though latisse says only to apply to upper lashes.

    I should try it on my eyebrows. I have a couple balding areas that could use a little help. I'll report back if I get any brow results.

    Thanks, RCW! I'm really looking forward to having "good" lashes again.

    I am so tempted to try the generic Latisse from ADC. I am concerned about the iris darkening warning for Latisse. Any longtime users see any of that?

    My eyes are still green after 16 months. Even if they turn brown, I'll have no regrets. I'd rather have brown eyes with lashes than bald green eyes.
  • LotsawavesLotsawaves Posts: 8,660Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    It's been a little over 4 weeks and my light green eyes haven't changed. I'm loving the results. I was shopping and having lunch with my daughter today and she asked if I had, had the individual lashes put on. Yea! it's working.

    I put it on my lower lashes, too, and of course the eyebrows. I'm not seeing much in the eyebrow area, but I'm going to keep applying. They say it takes 16 weeks for the max results.

    I still don't see a difference without mascara. Maybe after 16 weeks.

    I am going to keep an eye on this thread. With my luck, I will be the one in 1000 that has eye color change. I definitely have more sparse lashes than I did a few years ago, so I would considering ordering the generic with my next ADC order.

    So, I did my nightly routine and I looked in my magnifying mirror (don't do that too often) and I can see where I am getting new eyebrow hairs. Just so you know, it is working there, also. I wonder if it would work on my head hair.:happy11: I may need to order more.:D

    My eyelashes are so long now. I have to adjust my glasses, so they don't hit. I don't see them getting thicker, just longer.

    My eyebrows are getting thicker and darker.

    I love reading about these updates! I am so jealous! Maybe I will get brave enough to try it sometime. The generic Latisse is called Careprost (or maybe I have that product name mixed up with something else)?

    You are right on the generic name. I got mine for $10 a bottle. I'll be ordering more. I haven't seen my friend who is buying latisse for $80 a bottle. It will be interesting to see her reaction. My daughter has already noticed the difference.

    I think this happened with the higher strength one that is a glaucoma drug, not the latisse? But I think if you have light colored eyes maybe you would see even small changes, so might be risky.

    The warning about possible permanent iris color change is part of the verbal disclaimer in the Latisse commercials on TV, and in magazines. Maybe I will get some and try it on just my eyebrows. That sounds sort of promising also! :thumbright:

    I wouldn't buy Latisse just for eyebrows. Minoxidil (Rogaine) is more readily available (and in larger quantities...maybe even cheaper) if you want to try a hair-growth product on eyebrows.

    Just don't use Rogaine on your eyelashes. It's not safe for eyes.
