Best Latisse Dupe Careprost Lash Growing Serum,and Without a Doctor's Prescription

Latisse Before and After

If you've landed on this page  through search then you probably  know what Latisse is already and how absolutely phenomenal and effective it really is, because it will most definitely give you those silly camel eyelashes.  Serious.  It's no lie.  And if you have never heard of Careprost, the Latisse dupe, then read on.


The before and after photos that you will see below are photo's taken off the web with the proper credits listed below.  My lashes are still laughably short and flimsy to bother showing because of my Asian genes...









Before and After

On Asian lashes,  sorry, we're still fucked, it won't get as camel'ish.  No matter what lash growing serums we slap-on, it simply won't be as thick or as long. And I've tried quite a few of them to know.  It's just in our genes (the best hair, but the worst lashes *sigh* IMHO).  Well, might as well get the cheapest and the most effective, I say, and embrace what we got.

 The biggest plus from using this for me is that my flimsy Asian lashes has started to curl, and it no longer grows straight out or downwards.  I noticed this phenomenon after about 6 months of use.  :)

  Yes, this serum will most definitely and without a doubt grow your lashes longer, curlier, darker, and somewhat thicker, and even grow hair that stopped growing for many years from over plucking.  However, it won't compare to falsie.  No, falsies will always give you the best lashes. So if your plan was to use this and stop using fake lashes, then I don't think you will be as happy with the results.  I'm telling you this from a personal experience of using it nightly for a year.   If someone or some company tells you other wise,  they're fucking lying.

The only horrible down side of using this for me is that, it's more painful to pluck my eyebrows now, in fact I stopped altogether and started shaving it.  I guess the serum that I apply to my eyebrows migrated down so that all my pesky little hairs got rooted down a bit firmer... Whatever, it hurts like a bitch to pluck!...

We know that it's a brilliant little product and that it's the only FDA-approved prescription treatment that grow lashes, but gosh it's so damn expensive at $140+ a bottle and requires a doctor's visit on top of that. With today's  drowning economy who can afford to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on a lash serum... 



Thank God for Careprost, the Latisse's Dupe, which has the exact same ingredients (0.03%  bimatoprost) and cost about $12 (with $25ship) and without a doctor's prescription at that. What? Uh huh... But there is a catch (what doesnt),  read on -

If you don't want to read this review fully and merely want to know where to buy it -  buy Careprost  here .


What is Lattise  growth serum?  I don't want to get redundant, so please read this blog about lashes in general that I had posted previously to get the basic facts.

Little over a year ago, when I discovered  Careprost, there really wasn't many sites or companies that sold this product, it was mostly unknown.  And the companies that did sell them were all over seas, like in India/China, or was sold by weird looking sites that sold things like Viagra pills, sex drugs, how to stay erect for hours serums - and God knows what other strange vitamins.  It made me feel like I was druggie buying a  hardcore, illegal drug on the black market.  haha.

It didn't help that the most common and the cheapest  site - All Day Chemist - located in India, was going through a credit card scam scandal, with  numerous bad reviews from unhappy buyers.  Even now there are people complaining bitterly about this website on numerous cosmetic forums.

  I encourage you to Google and do your research BEFORE ordering from this particular web site, and I'm sure you will be tempted to because they're still the cheapest site on the internet.


latisse and careprost bottle side by side

These days, gosh how words have spread, they're pretty much sold on any pharmacy sites.  If you google Careprost - they're even sold on Amazon (usually the cheapest and the most secure buyouts) which is just astonishing to me.   Personally, I would gladly spend a few more bucks knowing that my personal info is safe and sound than save $5~10 to get my credit card possibly hacked, my identity stolen from using a site that even PayPal kicked off their program, and there are numerous sites like these on the web, you've been warned.

Funny story - when I first purchased this, I thought I had discovered a reputable web site in Canada that sold these for just few dollars more($3), so I placed an order without much thought put in it.  Well,  it ended up being the All Day Chemist's sister site.  AND I had used my real credit card info on it, you can't imagine the stress I went through for couple of months after that ...

Careprost

There are ways around it of course, you can buy a prepaid credit card, but make sure that it's international prepaid credit card.   

I would buy this from sites that accepted PayPal ONLY and you should too.  Do your research, don't get scammed - and avoid ADC or their sister sites all together, no matter how much they're trying to do some PR patching right now... I've read too many bad reviews of credit card scams by this company to EVER use them. Why, when there are other options out there now.  Peace of mind is worth more than saving a couple of bucks.

If the seller is sold out then use this store, but ultimately, try buying it from Amazon.




How to apply Careprost

How to Use:
One drop of the serum on the bottle's cap (shown above) will cover both eyes.  Will need  a drop  per each eyebrows.


What brush to use with Careprost

You can buy a piece of shit brush for a $1 from these companies that sell the serum but I use the $3 e.l.f. Studio Small Smudge Brush to apply nightly.  It has been the best brush for me because it fits my lash line to perfection and it absorbs the perfect amount of the serum per application so none is ever wasted.

This new anti bacterial, synthetic haired Taklon brush is softer and more absorbent and can be used with wet or dry products. Be a professional makeup artist and create a flawless look with this e.l.f. studio brush!

Contact wearers.  It's advised that you not wear your contacts until the serum has dried completely (15mins after use) before putting it in.

Again, please read my Lash Blog to get the bare minimum facts of possible side effects before trying it.

<< UPDATE:  10/27/12 >> ( New Supplier)

Hello, ladies!  Thank you for your patience.

 Ok, so I've been looking online, reading reviews, speaking to other bloggers and forums to find us a reliable source of the Careprost since Amazon seems to be out of stock at the moment. 

 What I found was that, I think it's a safe bet to use the site that I've used once before ( the one I *think* is linked to All Day Chemist ).

reliablerxpharmacy - Careprost

 After using this company last year, it completely stressed me out for  months worrying, I will not lie, but ultimately, my experience with them was good over all so I'll be ordering from them again if Amazon doesn't stock up.  And yes, I most def, DEF did read up on our options....I won't BS or mislead you. 





  • Sent me a confirmation email promptly
  • Gave me a Tracking #
  • I received my mail within few days.
  • And I had NO problems with my Credit Card.

I caution you to be weary of the suggested links and stores posted in the comment section.  Some of them are just spammers/sellers trying to make a sell by any means (and making ridiculous claims at that).  I do delete them when I see it but in case I don't see it in time, please be careful!

  4. You can use pre-paid Visa cards. You can buy them at grocery stores. Choose the ones which are for travel beause All Day Chemists do not accept the ones for local use like Greendot cards. Just put in enough $ in the card to cover what you need plus shipping.

      If I remember correctly, there is an option to use a credit card - but you need to read the wall of text to find it, but its most def there..

    2. I did everything you said and this is what I get: Payment method

      Pay By eCheck Pay by eCheck - For USA Clients only (Get a discount of US$10*) Applicable on more than US$ 150.00
      Pay by Check / Pay Order/ Draft Pay by Check / Pay Order/ Draft ( Get $ 5.00 rebate)
      Wire Transfer Wire Transfer. ( Get $ 5.00 rebate)
      Online Banking Online Banking (for outside USA clients only)

      Im in texas, so i dont know why I would have this problem... do you recommend echeck? or which one is the safest?

      Delete
    3. That is so strange... You don't see the page I took a screen shot of? As soon as I log in, it takes me to this page with the option to use a credit card.

      I would try creating a brand new user account and see if that will fix the problem.
      Then if that doesnt fix it, email them and ask why you're unable to use your card. I'm also going to send them a email to see what the deal is as well. If you're in the US they will accept a CC.

      I don't feel comfortable using my bank account anywhere, unless it's PayPal, so my advice to you is to call your bank and ask what your options are. :)

  10. Quick question ( 2 actually): from your experience how long does one bottle last you and did you really notice good results? I have been using an all natural product that worked a little bit, but nothing too extreme, I want extreme growth so that I dont have to worry about wearing mascara everyday, ugh! its such a bug taking it off and seeing all those lashes come off :(

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi!

      My bottle last me about a month and a half to three months, but I no longer apply it every day, more like every 2-3 days since it's grown out to their max. :)

      I would say AMAZING results. You will not see the difference for a least 3~4 weeks.... then one day, when you're applying your mascara, you'll stop to think... WOW..my lashes look just AMAZING!... Then continue to grow and thicken. It also grew hair on my eyebrows that wouldnt, because I over plucked them in the 90s ..

      Down side... plucking my eyebrows became very painful because they're so firmly rooted, I guess? ..So I now shave them.



      Best of luck, Please, please come let me know how it went. Take pics so that I can post it in my blog! <3

      xoxo - Tina

    2. Forgot to add -- You will still get better lashes with a mascara or fake lashes - no serum will grow your lashes to look like falsies.

      I use Careprost and still use fake lashes with mascara!~ :)

    3. ok great! thank you for replying, my your FAST! lol so how long did your first bottle last? and do you recommend I purchase with echeck?

      Delete
    4. My first bottle lasted me a while... about a month and a half. As far as using a echeck, I'm sure it's safe but I would call your bank first to hear about other options before using it. :)

  11. go to ioffer its the only place i know (well amazon as well but it keeps getting taken off that site) where you can read reviews from other customers. They are real customers not made up reviews because you have to buy to make a review.

    Do NOT use all day chemists I did and my card was used I know this has happened to a lot of other people.

    reliablerxpharmacy.com is a reseller buying from all day

    2. Hi Kate.

      I use Reliablexpharmacy with a credit card. I think they don't accept CC right now on new members only. If I'm not mistaken, it's an error from their system, might be fixed in the future. I had purchased from them last year so I had an account with them.

      I just got my 2nd order of Careprost and my CC is fine..but I'm watching my account closely and I'll report back if there are any problems.

  14. Ok just got my order......but!! They did try to run my card twice for the same shipment... Luckily, I had spoken to my bank previously and they recommended that if I shop online often just to open a shopping account, it's free, and just load on there the amount that I need for each purchase. I'm so glad I did that because I think that it would be such a hassle to get your money back. Maybe my case is few and far in between but I'm glad I got the snooping account so speak to your bank about echeck s. Jen

      HOWEVER, my account got canceled 2 weeks ago for no reason. When I emailed them asking why, they replied back saying they were having system issues... eh... o_O

      Whatever, so if that's the case, I will also have to start using my bank account to pay for it, so your info was a Godsend! :)

  16. There is actually another product called traveprost which is stronger. The strength is increased by by .01% which is .04% strength as opposed to latisse or careprost@ .03%. I purchased my careprost on amazon- 3bottles for about $90 which is a deal till I found alldaychemist.con which purchases direct from manufacturer@$10 per bottle with shipping of $25- which is ultimately a steal! Down time is the shipping which is about a month. I plan on trying traveprost after careprost which I have three bottles to still kill! Also for sanitary and safety purposes- something as delicate as your eye, washing a brush all the time umm isn't exactly whats recommended. I bought 100 disposable eyeliner brushes on ebay for about $14 so thats an easy 3 month supply. Also the instructions do say that the product must not touch anything but the brush because it can be contaminated easily. JUST FYI for everyone! I used lilash in the past and loved the results- lashes were longer but not really thick but very costly! Hopefully I can update with good results!
