Lilash Eyelash Stimulator gets mixed consumer reviews

Reviewed by Marta July 3, 2013 48 Comments

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 after using Lilash. 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 are many who report that the adverse reactions stop after a week or so and they continue Lilash use without any irritation.

It seems as if those that do persevere 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.

Ingredients in Lilash:
Water, Glycerin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Panthenol, Lupinus Albus Seed Extract, Prunus Amygdalus Seed Extract, Silica, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben, 9 alpha, 11 alpha, 15S-trihydroxy-17-Phenyl 18, 19, 20-Trinor-prosta-5Z, 13E-Diene-1-oic acid, Isopropyl Ester.

    I started using this product in 2008, I've found for years that lilash worked very well for me, till last year. I thought maybe I got an old batch, but since I've ordered three more, I've found this product has stopped working for me. I use it just about every night. Was wondering if anyone else has had the same problem?

    Further to my previous comment I have received my refund and am very happy with their prompt service. In view of this it's certainly worth a try as you haven't got anything to lose. Would have still preferred for it to work though :(

    After 2 months of using this, it hasn't made one bit of difference apart from darkening the skin around my eyes. It's going back, now I will see how good they are about the refund.

    I've used the product in the past, when I could by it locally, and from the company directly, and it worked extremely well. My lashes grew so long they reached my eyebrows, and I had "trouble" wearing sunglasses, the lashes kept hitting the lens :) I'm not sure whether it was serum or stimulator. When I tried to reorder and they wouldn't ship to the US any more, I found some on Amazon, but that definitely was fake, because it didn't work at all. I've just ordered some via as per Michelle's recommendation. In the meantime I found another product, but that one hasn't worked, I hope I'm getting the real thing via Overstock. I'm wondering whether the product "brings back" lash length as they used to be when I was younger, because I have friends who've tried it and were happy with the results but their lashes never got as long as mine.

    I was reading through the comments posted and diane mentioned that lilash stimulator is not the real product. I started using LiLash back in 2010 and saved my boxes and containers and they all say stimulator not serum and I loved the results I had. I stopped using it in 2012 and wanted to start up again. I went online and noticed most of the boxes said serum. I think older LiLash was Stimulator and newer LiLash is Serum. By the way my application brushes were all orange. I went ahead and ordered the serum thinking it's newer I hope it's not fake and it works as great as the stimulator did when I used that.
