I really don't think mascara would be an issue. If mascara has any types of oils, very limited amounts would be absorbed through eyelashes. i don't know of anyone that has had problems with their origianl mascara.

LOL . . good! u need to feel good about urself, too! i think the doc was a little extreme on this one! Acutally, i didn't change any of my personal products, i.e. shampoos, conditioners, deoderants, lotions, etc. If i start to run into a problem, I will look at them, but did well in my first round!

Great Lash by Maybelline is water based and yes, it can be an issue according to Dr. Simeon. He prohibited it, but since GL is water-based, you should be able to use it.

I've been using Lancome's Definicils and Peter Thomas Roth's Mascara with no issues. I didn't even think about mascara. I also sometimes use a lash primer.

I looked up the ingredients to L'oreal Telescopic mascara and it's water based. No oils in it. However, most of the other L'oreal mascaras do contain oils. Read the ingredients.

Nothing that ends in ose, glycerin, oils, butters and lanolin. I found this disclaimer online as well. " Don't use if any type of oil other than mineral oil is found within the first eight ingredients"
