I DVR most every television program I want to watch of late.....just to avoid the commercials. I love to be able to zoom past them. My time to actually watch anything is limited, you know. Well I decided to check out a new show on USA in the wee hours of the morning when I couldn't sleep. I was inundated with an ad for the new eyelash growing drug that is being touted by Brooke Shields.
How vane are we? I do wear make-up and try to enhance the features I do have. Like my mother I was not blessed with long, thick eyelashes. Even if I had money for such, I doubt I would even want to try it. It must be a relatively new drug on the market. It has side effects....said so in the ad. I am sure that not all the side effects were mentioned. Irritation to the application site was one of them. That alone is enough to make me not want to try it. I have allergies that cause my eyes to be irritated and itch. What happens if you accidentally get this stuff IN your eye?
I don't like to take any prescription drugs, but I especially don't like to take newly released ones.
Makes me feel like a guinea pig. Have you noticed how many drugs come under question after being on the market for several years? Now, if I had some life threatening or debilitating disease I would no doubt have a different opinion as to a new course of drug therapy.......... but for eyelashes?
