I had short,thin lashes. I also had a problem with my lashes falling off. My hubby, who is an md, gave me latisse. He doesn't believe in many cosmetic products, but this...I've only used it for a month and it's longer and thicker. My lashes also stopped falling out. It did irritate my eyes and the skin around my eyes for about a week. I eventually got used to it. It does leave a discoloration around your eyes (sort of like dye). It's only been 5 weeks and it looks like I'm wearing fake lashes.
