MyChelle Ultimate Lash & Brow Serum!

WOW!!  This one works great! Wanted to try a lash serum for awhile but was afraid of the nasty side effects so I was thrilled to find this one from MyChelle.  When I was younger I didn't need to wear mascara but as I got older the need grew!  Then I noticed a gap in my lashes on my right eye and would dab eyeliner at the base so it wouldn't be as noticeable.  Hoping that the ducts hadn't closed up I decided to try this serum and am so glad that I did!  It took a solid 3-4 weeks to see "sprouts" in my gap and within 3 months the area was completely filled in.  I stopped using for about a month to see if they would go back to the way they were before I started using this serum but they didn't.  Now I just use several times a month and my lashes look great! The best part is that this serum is half the price of Latisse and doesn't have any of those nasty side effects!!  The only thing I noticed after using every night for the 3 months was a small dry patch on one lid which went away with a little extra moisturizer.  It only happened one time and may not have had anything to do with the serum but worth the mention.  All in all I highly recommend this one if you have ever wanted to try Latisse but didn't want the side effects.  Not much to lose and just beautiful lashes to gain! Any questions just drop me a line!
