We’re always hearing a lot of hype about the “next big thing”. Every company has their shining star product, the one thing that keeps customers coming back for more.
While Rodan & Fields is rumored to have a lot of great skincare products, their shining star is Lash Boost. Lash Boost is a special serum, formulated to help your eyelashes grow longer, thicker, and darker. It has a number on ingredients including panthenol, which moisturizes your lashes, and biotin and and keratin, which keeps them strong (making them less likely to break or fall out).
Pam recommended using every night, it would take 8-12 weeks to see it’s full effects, although I could notice a difference in as little as 2. And she wasn’t wrong.
It seemed like merely days before I was saying to myself “hey, my lashes turned out really good today” a lot more often. It had only been a few days so I wasn’t seeing a huge difference in length yet, but it just seemed like my mascara turned out especially great, after only a few days. It was definitely improving my lashes almost immediately!
After 2 weeks I did notice my lashes were a little longer, a little fuller, and definitely darker.
After 4 weeks I noticed my lashes were a lot longer, a little fuller, and a lot darker.
After now, 6 weeks I noticed my lashes were definitely longer, definitely fuller, and definitely darker…This stuff works.
Lash extensions are really popular right now, but they have a lot of downsides.
#1. They are expensive
#2. They require a ton of upkeep (refills every 2 weeks)
#3. They require a lengthy appointment to apply (often 2+ hours in a chair)
A serum like lash boost can get your similar results for a much less, almost no upkeep, and it takes only seconds to apply. I’ll take that any day!
Lets do the math. A local salon near me charges $150 for a set of lash extensions and then $75 for a refill after 14 days. That makes it $225 a month upfront and $150 per month after that. That brings us to $1,875 a year.
I did notice that Lash Boost requires persistent use to be effective. There were a few nights in a row…maybe 4 or so, last month when I wasn’t feeling well so I neglected my “before bed” routine so I could get to sleep as quickly as possible. Not only did my skin break out because I wasn’t taking care of it, but I noticed my lashes were much more lackluster than before due to not using the Lash Boost. In order to maintain your results, it will require consistent use. Luckily, like I said above, it only takes seconds to apply
I will say that it should be used sparingly. Not only will using less every night make your tube last longer (maybe get 4 months out of it instead of 3), but using too much can make your eyes red, dry, itchy, and irritated. I’ve found it’s best to make sure you wipe the excess off of your brush before applying it to your lid. At first, I was just pulling it out of the tube and straight up lathering it on my eye. This not only caused my eyes to feel dry and itchy, but some serum would often drip down into my eyes and that did not feel great!
Here are my results so far:
Left: Before Right: After (No Mascara)
After; without mascara
After; with mascara
I’m in love with my results!!
