Hello i am beauty student in Taiwan and this is my first post.

Last week my boyfriend came back from America and gave me Jan Marini eyelash grower. It is terrible product. After 3 times use (each time use my eyes feel hot and watery), my eyes sweel and turn red. Then full of white crust. I cannot open eyes, go see doctor. He say I have allergic reaction and infection - throw away product. Just now getting better.

Very angry with Jan marini. Do not use this product. I almost go blind.

Hi nancy,

Sorry you had an allergic reaction to JM. I had a reaction to talika as well. Too bad you threw away your JM. I am sure you could have swap it or sell it no problem.

I miss taiwan's food Drool

Sorry to hear that Nancy. My eyes' rims turned red for 1-2 days use of RL. Nothing serious like yours though. Sad

Can someone using the new version of JMAIE post the ingredient list? I'm curious to know what they changed....

Mtview, I don't think it's a good idea to swap an eye product especially when there's an infection involved. I'd not buy a used one because you're putting this stuff near your eyes and you want to make sure you're not getting someone else's infection. I can be pretty serious. I think eye doctors would tell you to be careful when using eye drops not to touch your eyelids with the tip of the eye drops, too. Because then you can get reinfected (in case you're treating an eye infection). I went through a period of getting an eye infection, so I am super paranoid when it comes to eyes.

My eyes little bit better now, but still feel sore, and look red and puffy. I read everyone's eyes turn red too. Why use Jan Marini like this? Why tell me to sell to someone else so make their eyes go blind too?

Doctor say should complain and ban dangerous product like this. He say toxick.

Complain who? where? Taiwan or US? Boyfriend buy from US. How can US allow this product to sell?

nancy,

If you do want to file a complaint, you may have to file it with JM in the US since the product was bought in US. That is my guess. If your dr can provide you with some sort of documentation that may be very helpful.

I have not tried JM eyelash product myself but it seemed to be the "it" product Rolling Eyes

Oh dear, I am really sorry to read about your plight, nancylo Crying or Very sad I hope your eyes recover quickly from this nasty experience without being permanently damaged in anyway. Our sight is so precious to us and we don't really come to grips with it until situations like this arise.

There was talk about this in an earlier thread (do a search for Jan Marini ingredients), and some EDS members referred to it as "poison", but they wanted to continue using it because they were convinced it gave them longer eyelashes. I think the only explanation for this is that many of us are very vain women with high disposable incomes!

I think the idea of complaining to Jan Marini in US is a good one. PLUS you should also CC this to an appropriate government agency in the US. The FDA (Food & Drugs Agency, I think?) comes to mind. US residents would know which is best and there are many of them on this forum.

Alternatively, if you contact Jan Marini directly, they may just pay you a lot of $$$$$ to keep quiet.... think about it.

More importantly, take care and get well soon.

Is it necessary to dip brush in tube again after applying to one eye or will one dip do both eyes?

Much thank you for kind words. Slowly getting better. I wear sunglasses to look at computer and TV still because light can be paintful. I will take your advice, I think. Because this product is so bad. Nothing I put on eyes before hurt bad like this.

Depending upon how much you "scrape" off on the edge of the bottle before you apply it, then one dip should complete both eyes. Remember -- the active ingredient is VERY potent so you only need to use the tiniest amount! It is not necessary to saturate the lashline or lashes with the product in order to attain results -- when you apply it, the serum should be completely dry on your lashline within 30-45 seconds of application or it means you are applying too much....

HTH,
Carrie

It appears to be, or else a form of, Travopost (the Rx glaucoma med).

But JM and RL always say it isn't the glaucoma med. In their ingredient list, do you know which is the active??? Is it legal to use an RX in an over the counter if you're using small amounts? I'm just curious.

See this thread: http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=21211 Apparently the "gooble-dy gook" on the newly revised label with which they replaced "EyeLash Growth Factor" is -- in fact -- the chemical makeup for a form of the glaucoma med. I'm not a chemist so I can't colloborate that supposition, but that is the way it is starting to appear....

Happily, my lash growth serum does NOT reply on illegal Rx meds! Razz

Hey nancylo, if you are watching this thread, there is probably a darn good reason why you reacted the way you did.

Put on your sunglasses and see here:

Carekate! You must realize you have just made a ton of women happy (including me) with this announcement. We have been waiting forever for your lush lash serum which is both effective AND safe to use.

The next question is how do we buy it? I already PM'd you before that I wanted to be on your wait list to buy the product, but haven't heard back if I'm already on your wait list or not. Also how do I pay you? Do you take paypal?

Thanks again! Woohoo. I am really happy because I've been worried about using Revitalash. I feel that it may be drying out my eyes.

I was always skeptical of JM , although I have wanted to purchase it. All the articles say the negative effects are cumalative & possibly permanent.
