...SO, I purchased this to try to bulk up my lashes again and regrow and re-pigment them. This stuff is the BOMB. I've only been using it for a couple of weeks, and I can already tell my lashes are fuller, and a bit darker.
Great product, awful applicator
I've used TALIKA in the past, but not the "Expert". I can't find the regular TALIKA anywhere so I figured I'd give the Expert version a go. The product itself is great. I really do notice a difference in both existing lashes and new growth, but you have to be patient and give it time. Like taking vitamins for your hair, you're not going to see overnight results. 4 - 6 weeks minimum. Also, you need to get the product along your lash line and kind of massage it in. Don't just depend on brushing it onto your lashes.
Here's what I love: gentle formula (I'm a contact wearer) that doesn't irritate; the product works for me (not only do I see new growth, but a noticeable reduction in the amount of lashes I lose over the course of a month); works great under mascara - just be sure to let it dry before you start your makeup routine.
Here's what I loathe: the applicator tip at the end of the brush. I get the point of it (you have to get the product onto your lash line), but it makes it so hard to get into the inner corner of your lashes with the brush, and I feel like it takes up a lot of/wastes product in the tube. It seems like I go through a tube in 4 weeks when the smaller tube with just the brush (no applicator tip) lasted me 6 -7 weeks.
THINK it's working
I'm not sure if it's a combination of this product and supplements, but this serum seems to be working. Even though I only apply it in the morning, I'm seeing some lash regrowth (my lashes mysteriously fell out in one part of one lid). Try this with prenatal vitamins!
Great skin cleanser
I have very sensitive skin, and this a very mild cleanser. It still does a really good job without causing any irritation.
Seems to work
I ordered this and have been using it for about 3 weeks now. I have noticed that my lashes have darkened and are longer. It is too soon to really say much more. So far so good. I will do another review in a few months.
this did nothing for me
i used it as directed and used one full tube - and i didnt notice even the SLIGHTEST differnce. i will say that it made my mascara go on nice and smooth, but that's not what i was looking for. won't be buying it again.
I CAN REALLY TELL A DIFFERENCE IN MY LASHES! THEY ARE FULLER AND WHEN I CURL THEM THEY ACTUALLY STAYED CURLED.
Didn't work for me
Unfortunately, I didn't notice any difference to my lashes over an extended period of time (I even took periodic photos to check my progress.) For the high price and the goopiness it leaves on your lashes, I just don't think it's worth it. I think I'd just rather try lash extensions or something.
I've been using this product religiously night and day for the past few days because I chopped off a chunk of my eyelashes with a cheap eyelash curler... After a huge freak out session, I purchased this product to help grow my eyelashes back. I must say, I am impressed! After using it for less than a week, I can see slight improvements. The only reason why I am giving this product four starts instead of five is because it does not blend with the mascara too well. However, it may be due to the fact that I seriously glob the product onto my eyelashes before applying mascara...
I bought this a few months ago and have noticed a significant change. My lashes were long to begin with but they are much fuller now. This is a very worthy splurge!!
