I used it and looked like I was crying my eyes were red all around. Yes Keller 4621, it does turn blue and green eyes brown. I have blue eyes and did not want to lose them! READ COMMENT

Only thing I buy from GR is proactive. I don't care for GR, so I don't want to buy anything else from them, but I have been buying proactive for years to use whenever my skin acts out. It is the best and safest treatment I have ever... READ COMMENT
