Librow for eyebrow growth looks a lot like Lilash

Eyelashes & Brows

Librow, the eyebrow growth product from Lilash, promises to restore even the most overplucked and moth-eaten. Like its lash lengthening older sister, Librow contains a prostaglandin.

This is a drug that it used to treat glaucoma and was found to have a desirable side effect: it made lashes longer, thicker and blacker. Unfortunately, it can also have less desirable consequences such as irritation of the surrounding skin, staining of the skin, red and burning eyes and, in some rare cases, change of eye color.

Still, it works. Recent research has shown prostaglandins can stimulate head hair growth as well as eyelashes. Revitalash, another lash enhancer brand, has just brought out a hair growth product with prostaglandins as the active that we will be reviewing in full in a few weeks.

There are three botanicals in Librow: krameria, sarothamnus and walnut leaf. None have anything to do with hair growth, but in this combination, they are marketed together as something called Melscreen Black for preventing gray hair from looking yellow-ish by despositing dark pigments. The same three are also in Real Lash Mascara. I imagine that these dark pigments make lashes and brows look darker and therefore give the impression of being longer and thicker.

It seems likely that Librow will work as well as Lilash and given that it is used further away from your eyes there may be less irritation. Do post a comment if any of you have tried Librow.

    I love Librow! Without it my, eyebrows are almost nonexistent. Librow gives me full, perfectly colored brows. The difference is dramatic. Wouldn't want to live without it!

    I have used LiBrow for the past 8 weeks and have noticed next to no changes. I didn't even pluck, which should have made for some very bushy eye brows with this product. Not sure if anything is going to still change, but I will maybe try it for a couple more weeks to be sure.

    Hi, I've used Librow. I have very thin eyebrows since birth. I had tried a lot of natural therapies like, olive oil, castor oil. etc. but none had worked. Used Librow 2 yrs back. And it really worked. within a month, i had a good defined eyebrow. And didn't need to use eye pencils. The only drawback which i found was, it only lasts till you use it. I could not use it for 3 mnths straight. And i found my brows went back to how they were before. This was certainly disappointing. I've started using it again, and its giving me results.
    The bottle lasts for long so that is good. Also eye pencils are only so good when you are not out swimming. Since i do a lot of that, its good to have a nice looking eyebrows even when your face is clear of all make up. Thats the main reeason why i still use librow.

    I applied Librow for the first time two nights ago and I woke up with dry and red eyes. Didn't apply it last night and still feel it. Is this something that subsides with continued use or an indication I should stop? I'd hate to give up so soon after dropping $115. It's tolerable, but if it got worse I'd be too nervous to continue.

    Revitalash has a prostaglandin just like Lilash.
