Eyelash growth products with prostaglandins almost all work, but all too often cause side effects, as our readers have reported with, for example, Lilash, such as severe irritation and even hair sprouting in cheeks. Our Five Best picks - Hydropeptide, Folligen, Marini Lash, Dermalash and Keracyte-B - are prostaglandin free and we have tested them and know that they work on lashes and eyebrows.

    Can you use Folligen Cream on your eyes and lashes? It appears to be intended solely for hair loss on your head and hairline.

    I've been using RapidLash on my eyebrows for about 1-1/2 months and it has caused new hair growth. Unfortunately, the new hairs are not like my other brow hair - they are either curled or sticking straight out or so long they need to be trimmed. It's possible that the hibernating follicles have aged so I'm going to continue using the RapidLash to see if they eventually produce normal brow hair. I haven't tried the product on my lashes because I'm afraid new lashes might come in going in all directions and then I'll be in trouble with them poking me in the eye.
