Latisse, the New Eyelash Growth Product

Do you think this new eyelash growth product, Latisse, really works??

Yes, it definitely works and seemingly, on everyone. Everyone notices an increase in length and sometimes, an increase in thickness.

But here are some points to make about it:

  • You need to use it for at least 8-10 weeks to get full growth and thickening of the lashes
  • It’s not cheap: $125 for a 4-week supply. I recommend using your own tiny eyeliner brush (rinse and air dry after using), which will make your supply last 6-8 weeks or longer
  • It’s not for everyone and it is a prescription medication, so you need to talk to a doctor or PA-C who can prescribe it
  • You can try it on your eyebrows if they are sparse.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
