I tried castor spread all over my eyelids for eight weeks diligently, I did not even try the lemon. Mine has gone completely. My GP diagnosed the xanthelasma 20 Dec 2014, I bought the oil a day later and there is no trace of it. It was right on my eye line, the lashes had stopped growing where it was bulging. My doctor referred me to a skin specialist to have it removed. I have save a fortune thanks to this blog. The oil cost me six dollars. Giddy up. I smothered my eyes every night, it didn't seem to irritate like you think it would. Thanks.
