My concern......is it safe to put near/on your eyes. I'm not gonna jump in and try that.
My head says yes. No telling the chemicals we use around our eyes all the time. Aside from it going on your lashes, I'd think it'd be no different than using a CBD eye cream. Hell, if it works well, I'm game. 50+ is not kind to lashes, in my case :(

Wait till 60+;) That is a pricey mascara though.

When I went through that nasty treatment a few years back, I lost all my eyelashes. They did eventually grow back but they have never been the same. You have a good point, It is probably fine. Guess I will start rubbing a tiny bit on the lash line in the evenings and see if anything comes of it after a month or so.

Reminds me of vaping. We've all kinda been guinea pigs. Are we the same with CBD? Granted, there has been research done with both, and positive research at that.

Well, I got an email from Sephora reminding me of a free bday gift, just one of those trial size thingies they give you with a purchase. I looked to see what the options were, and how bout this, it was for this mascara and a lipstick, or something.

I tried it today for the first time. The mascara lasted all day, didn't have those dreaded "raccoon eyes", lol. Fresh on, my lashes looked longer, not much more in volume, but I hadn't seen lashes like that on me in years! I wish that effect had lasted all day, but it was a long, hard day. Was kinda warm, so I stayed hot all day. Mascara is pretty much all I wear to work, I really just don't like putting on a face, and I'm lazy. I run a lot while I'm there, I stay a sweaty mess, so I was happy to see it at least didn't run off, or even flake.

Would I pay $12 or more for it? Don't know just yet. I wanna see how it goes for the rest of the week, then I'll decide. Kinda pricey.

Today didn't fare quite as well as yesterday. Toward the end of the night I was in the restroom, washing my hands, putting a bit of cool water on my face and noticed the mascara hadn't stayed put as well as the day before. Maybe I used too much, or maybe it was just that I'd be HOT ALL DAY! Wearing masks all day doesn't help that, either.

I'll keep using it for a bit to get a fair assessment, lol.

Forgot to post further on this one. I gave up on it. As much as I liked the initial length it was giving me when I applied it, it just didn't have the staying power that I'm used to from my trusty L'oreal, lol.

At least it didn't really cost me anything.

Well boo. Thanks for trying it out though. :) Just saved me some $$ as I was thinking of getting it. I have the cbd oil I make though and I have been rubbing a little of that in. Haven't noticed any change but I am horrible at remembering to do it every night.
