Don't lash serums make your eyes darker ? I thought there's some warning on them

I had heard about this before I started using them so I spoke to various doctors at work about it. Basically, the story I got is this:

They discovered the eyelash growth serum principle when treating patients with glaucoma. They noticed if patients only had one eye undergoing treatment, the eyelashes on that eye grew much longer. So obviously something in the treatment was causing it. It was also well known that undergoing glaucoma treatment sometimes made patients irises change colour.
Obviously, the eyelash serum we buy over the counter is not the exact same formula as the treatment for glaucoma. The cosmetic nurse in our specialist suite specifically told me that the ingredient that changes iris colour is not in LiLash.

I was still unsure and did a lot of research online. I did find anecdotal evidence of people (usually with blue eyes) saying their eyes had changed colour. However it wasn’t clear whether a) they were using the same brand or b) the same formulation (companies change formulas over time). Also, a lot of ladies at work were using it and one of them stopped because her eyelids were reacting to the product. I was particularly worried because my eyes are very light blue.

In the end I decided I wasn’t going to know unless I just tried it. It seemed to be anecdotally possible but unlikely. I have used it on and off (usually for 2-3 weeks at any one time, with a few months between) for a year or so. I’m always very careful not to get it in my eye and not to rub my eyes when it’s on. I figure if it’s not actually coming into contact with my eyeball, it couldn’t have an effect.

I recommend everyone does their own research and makes up their own minds about cosmetic products (not just eyelash serum) as basically any product can have side effects.

one of the reasons i see you as a positive person is that you don't seem to have the negative anxiety/underlying self-hatred spirals that a lot of people deal with. i think your ability to calmly accept and move forward and not get flustered is positive and also very rare and immensely helpful and admirable. also, your sense of humor about everything gives off a positive vibe. and your love for walks/nature/food/life/learning/giving is so contagious

This is so sweet, I have read it about 10 times.

You must be very intuitive because you’ve pointed out a few things I hadn’t even really thought of myself (and I am constantly thinking about myself huehuehue)

It really is so nice to be in this place now. So so nice. And I’m glad it seems contagious and I get to rub my feels all over you guys too :3

New lashes? They're looking particularly selfie-tastic right now.

Hahaha yes! The latest selfie is the one with new lashes! My natural lashes have been looking more lush than usual lately as I had a ~3 week break from getting extensions and during that time I was putting growth serum on them. You can see my natural lash full glory in the ~beautiful skin~ selfie (fully recommend lilash and revitalash - they definitely work with consistent use)

You have fairly tan skin... Is that a natural tan, fake tan or heritage??

Ethnicity

The level of “tan” I am right now is not tan at all for me. I haven’t been out in the sun much since January

In one of those moods where I feel like I couldn’t even pay a boy to hang out with me bahahaha

90% of the time I love being by myself and just kicking the worlds ass and then 10% of the time ~the feels~ sneak up on me and I really miss affection and having someone in my life who really cares about me

P.S. I just ate $12 worth of delicious salmon

Are you on birthcontrol? I hear this helps with skin and yours is just glowing!!!

Hahahaha no and what birth control does to your skin depends on a) what birth control it is and b) your current hormonal profile. You have to get the right match to get good results. No two people are guaranteed to have the same good outcome from the same birth control

The last birth control pill I tried made my skin the worst it has ever been and I won’t be trying again any time soon

Firstly, my skin is feeling amaaaazing after my facial. If anyone in Hamilton is looking for a beautician for waxing/skin care etc message me off anon and I will give you her contact details.

Secondly, last night I made my whole family keto pancakes. Mum gave me my Easter eggs since I’m leaving today and can’t get them this weekend. I ate most of them last night heh heh heh.

Thirdly, we went out for lunch to the vegan/raw/paleo/etc cafe. I had a chocolate peanut butter protein smoothie and the big breakfast. I really wanted to try the raw vegan banoffee pie but I wasn’t in the mood after all the Easter eggs last night.

Fourthly, I went shopping and bought a new coat and a dress and FOUR skirts ha. I am getting my winter wardrobe sorted.

And finally THE PROGRESS TEST RESULTS CAME IN AND I SCORED ABOVE AVERAGE IN MY CLASS. People actually did manage to score negatively, which is possible because incorrect answers make you lose marks. I’m so so happy to be in the top half of my class. Ever since I got into medicine I’ve had massive imposter syndrome, feeling like I’m not smart enough to be here. The last picture shows my results for specific areas of medicine. I scored well above average in women’s health, skin, mental health and homeostasis. I scored well below average in child health, digestive and general duties. Argh I cannot explain how happy I am to have come in in the top 50%. Those people in the yellow “Excellent” group (which is the top 5% of our class, as you can see the top 5% got results ranging from 23-62%) must have some mad prior knowledge to have scored that high - most likely graduates with undergraduate degrees in biochemistry or nursing or pharmacy or public health or perhaps even physiotherapy, or potentially med students who are repeating the year. Remember this test was set at the level of a graduating doctor! My score was 17%. I know 17% of the content a graduating doctor is supposed to know!!!!

Wow I guess I’m not going for my usual beach walk today

Left is last time I went… Right is today

You remind me of a Siberian husky, the dark eyebrows and big blue eyes.

Lol!!! If I am to be compared to a dog at least it is a beautiful majestic one

Weeee I’ve spent today hanging out with my little brother and cats and soon I am going to my friends beauty clinic for a facial and maybe I will get her to wax my moustache off
