LiLash Purified Eyelash Stimulator works, but at what cost.

23 Sep

The good news is this product works, in only two and half weeks I was seeing results – longer, glossier thicker lashes.

The bad news.

It began to irritate my skin, it was only a mild irritation and itch but enough for me to look into the ingredients which is what I should have done before I tried this product. It contains Prostaglandin, the possible side effect from this chemical include eye colour change. What was even more worrying was the fact that it contains a preservative called methylchloroisothiazalinone. In high concentrations this could cause chemical burns and it is a skin and membrane irritant, thus the pigmentation changes.

    I bet if we knew half of what was in products we’d think twice about using them. I’m looking for a good organic hair dye, something that will cover grey, any suggestions?

    Yikes, I’ll cross that one off the list then!

    When I read the start of this review I worried because I’ve tried this product and had a bad reaction, so I was glad to read on and realise I’m not the only one. we all presume if something is sold in a chemist then it can’t be harmful. I’m going to start reading the list of ingredients in my cosmetics just as I do my food as they both go into my body.
