I've been hearing good things about the Dr. H mascara but because my eyelashes feel out with just about every other brand out there I'm too afraid to try. Instead, I started using the Talika eyelash gel and love the results, and kept my eyelashes to boot!

I've tried the Dr Hauschka one based on Mabsy's review somewhere here on EDS. I *really* like it and would buy it again. It is completely non-irritating to my sensitive and overworked eyes and totally separates my lashes for a natural look. I can't say that it does any super lengthening, but it does a good job of thickening and separating them. You just have to remember that it takes longer to dry after application than regular mascaras.

I actually found the Blinc Mascara great for my sensitive eyes just for the fact that I didn't have to rub the area under my eye to remove it, the skin under my eyes is much less of a red colour after using it.

The Dr H mascara is nice aswell, and the ingredients I assume are preferable over the Blinc mascara. I use one Of Talika's eye makeup removers to remove my mascara and it's great for sensitive eys too

I bought the Dr. H mascara and it's great for separating lashes. I didn't get lengthening or volume from it, but I think the ingredients are as gentle to the eyes and you can find in a commercial brand mascara. I am hoping that the new Dr. H volume mascara will do more for my lashes.

My eyes are frustratingly sensitive, particularly in the winter when the air is very dry, and I've been very happy with Dr. H mascara. As others have said, it doesn't add significant volume, but it is non-irritating and it feels good on my lashes. (They feel silky and supple, not brittle or stiff.)

I've also had good results using Dr. H eye solace as an occasional treatment. It doesn't make my eyes less sensitive, per se, but it is soothing and seems to make it easier to tolerate dry air, pollen, etc.

Another vote here for Dr H. I've always had sensitive eyes and many products caused me irritation from minor itching to dry eczema type rashes. I've been using Dr H mascara for years with great success. I absolutely love it! I highly recommend it and as you can see, many others here at EDS have great things to say as well.

My mom has ultra sensitive eyes and she swears by Mary kay mascara; it's the only one she can use.

I agree with Dr. H. I have very sensitive eyes and it's all I can use. I contacted the company to find out when the vollume mascara will be out and their response was:

[size=9][size=7]Thank you for your recent inquiry. We will be offering three
new volumizing mascaras in the late summertime! There will be Black,
Green/Gold and Aubergine.

Thanks again for writing,[/size][/size]

Do you have dark eyelashes? If you do, what about a clear mascara?

I like Cover Girl Clear mascara and it's very cheap.

I my Dr H mascara!

I have always had super sensitive eyes but this stuff doens't worry me in the slightest. Plus it looks totally natural and doesn't clump.

I can't say I noticed any significant lash lengthening myself, but my Mum asked the other day whether I had tinted my lashes because they looked really long, so it must make a difference Very Happy

Dr Hauschka's mascara is good for sensitive eyes but it does't add any lenght. It doesn't add much color either.

I'm a Dr. Hauschka user with sensitive eyes too, and I recently purchased their newish volumizing formulation. I found that version to be much more irritating to my sensitive eyes - I think it's the higher alcohol content, plus it's definitely harder to remove. It was nothing compared to a non-natural brand, but still... stick with the regular formulation if you're very sensitive (I personally like the consistency and overall effect a lot better anyway, though lots of other people are into it).

I use Blinc's Kiss Me mascara. It's very different from regular mascara, in that it forms tubes around your lashes, as opposed to just coating them with color. This makes it completely smudge-proof. You remove it just by getting your eyes really wet and lightly rubbing. It does a great job with color, and a decent enough job with lengthening. Separating - eh. But I've never really experienced a mascara that did that well all the time, without a comb.

I am currently going through the driest, most sensitive eyes you can imagine (due to allergies and medication). I seriously can't open them in the morning without emptying half a bottle of eye drops on top of them to seep in before I try to pry the lids up. Any product that gets within a few inches of my eyes turns them bright red. But my eyes are completely oblivious to this mascara.
