Hi Dusty1--no I haven't switched face cleansers. Only thing different is NOT putting on lash primer or mascara. I'm thinking that using it helped my lashes. Thanks for your kind words.

Hi gtx--I do use Bifical remover & it's funny because I thought the same thing! My lashes were so used to Lancome mascara, Cils Booster and Bifical I think they are protesting because I don't use them most of the time! LOL! Sure hope things get better. I never had this happen before.

I'm old so you may not get the same results, so take this as my experience only. I've always had very long, lush eyelashes. I've never had to wear mascara or curl my eyelashes and I've even had a hard time choosing a pair of eyeglasses because my lashes would hit the lenses. However, as I have gotten older, my lashes have gotten less and less full and thick. If I ever use a full face of make up, I need to use mascara.
Anyway, every mascara I've tried has dried my eyelashes out and they would break off. It was almost as if they had been fried they were so crispy.
I've started using Josie Maran mascara with argon oil. It is not waterproof but it has been very nourishing. It's almost like a treatment. I am rally enjoying the difference.

When I noticed my lashes were becoming "patchy" and many were ending up on my cheeks, I switched to Maybelline's Full 'N Soft washable formula and my lashes are no longer patchy and I don't find them on my cheeks.
I've been using this for years: I stock it when it's on sale. If it's ever discontinued I'll be devastated. It saved my lashes.

@Retired08 I've been looking for candid feedback about Josie's mascara, so may I ask if you sleep with it on (as Josie repeatedly advised and encouraged 'to nourish lashes') and if so, what has been your experience?
I began using Josie's last Fall, a few times I didn't remove it at night, then later something was 'bothering' my eyes. I felt like something was stuck inside an upper eyelid. But....there are other possible irritants and I'd like to wear her Mascara again at nite if users truly benefit from it.
Gotta be careful with the precious eyes.....But....gotta wear some enhancements!
(Note: the 'thing' stuck in my eye for a week FINALLY went away).

I stopped wearing mascara not because of it causing any problems. But it was removing it from my lashes that was causing problems...thinning mostly. So now I just use a Latisse type product (Careprost) to make my lashes long and thick. No need for mascara anymore unless I want the drama.
@stormey23 - I also use a Latisse type product - Careprost - as @SilleeMee . You may want to consider using a lash serum such as this one to enhance your lashes. She and I order ours from All Day Chemist at a very reasonable price.

I cringe when I see the models roughly take off their make-up.
Last night Deanna (sp?) used the Philosophy wipes to remove her make-up.
It looked like she was really pulling at her lashes.
I try to be very gentle when I remove my eye make-up.
I am fortunate to have very thick, and very long eyelashes with a coat or 2 of mascara.
Not using primer yet.
