Post-holiday Update

Just found a few minutes to take some photos and post an update. It's been just over two weeks, 18 days to be exact, since I started using Careprost. So far I've kept applying it religiously every night (except one night last week when I was a little worse for wear after copious amounts of prosecco and amaretto, ahem!) and I haven't found it to be an inconvenience, even when I was away in Italy. 

I think I can see a bit of a difference in my lashes already, although this could just be wishful thinking as I don't think you are meant to see any real difference until around week four. Also could be due to the fact they were sparse anyway after my eyelash extensions.

I finally got around to taking some photos tonight anyway, although despite being in the same room, with the same light and same camera set-up, they look completely different to the last lot I took. Taking decent, reproducible photos of your own eyes is actually trickier than it looks clearly!

In terms of side effects, I have been lucky so far... no itchiness after the last episode, no skin redness, no pigmentation (although it might be a bit early for that?), no stinging or redness of they eye itself. I'm being very, very careful that it doesn't actually get into my eyes though, especially as I don't want to risk iris pigmentation.

Anyway, here are my 'day 18' photos - please excuse the fact that I'm (over)due for an eyebrow wax...

I have also been using this on my eyebrows, I'm not sure it's doing anything much, but I'll keep doing it for now as a single drop of Careprost is more than enough for both lash lines and it seems a shame to waste it! 

Will update again in a week or so - Pea x
