When I was updating or roundup of eyelash and brow growth products, I noticed that our post on Lilash containing a prostaglandin had attracted a ton of comments - so many, in fact, that the feedback on whether Lilash works and what kind of side effects people experienced is probably statistically significant. These consumer reviews are a must read for anyone thinking about buying Lilash or any other eyelash growth product. To save you the trouble of sifting through them, here is a summary.
Twenty three people reported irritation. Most typically, the reaction has been red, swollen and itchy eyes. The extent varies, but for some people it is so severe that they give up using Lilash pretty quickly. However, there many who report that the adverse reactions stop after a week or so and they continue use without any irritation.
It seems as if those that do persevere seem to get the desired result of longer, thicker lashes. A total of 17 people said they were happy with the results of using Lilash.
However, there a few horror stories. I was shocked to find that a total of seven people reported that 'cheek hair' started to grow as a result of using Lilash and there are specific reports of new hair sprouting up somewhere between the cheekbone and lower lashes.
Less alarming, but nonetheless undesirable, is pigmentation. A total of seven Lilash users reported darkening skin or red lines where the product was being applied.
