Who doesn't love long lashes? I spent many months getting lash extensions and while I absolutely LOVE the length and drama they added, I didn't love the cost or maintenance of them. When I heard about Rodan & Fields Lash Boost, I was super interested to try it, but also a little skeptical - especially when the price tag rings in over $100. When my friend Callyn sent me some to try (fun fact- Callyn and my mom grew up together and were best friends throughout all of high school. It has been so fun connecting with her through them!), I was super excited.
Today I'm sharing my progress and thoughts on this product with you! I've been consistently applying it for about 8 weeks now, and my lashes have NEVER BEEN LONGER. I get stopped by people asking "Are those your real lashes?" I even got asked by my dermatologist the other day if they were real, and what product I was using because she was so impressed.
When I started out I felt like my lashes, that are naturally long-ish, were short and blunt after months of lash extensions. I started applying the Lash Boost each night before bed. The application process is super easy - you just swipe a little bit on your eyelid above your lash line. A little bit goes a long way and at first I thought if I loaded more product onto my eye, it would help them grow faster but it was totally unnecessary. Plus, the less you use, the longer it lasts! Here's an outline of the process ::
-After washing your face and drying thoroughly, apply a thin line of Lash Boost to your eyelid ABOVE your lash line (key here is that you don't want to put it IN your lashes at all, because then it will get in your eyes)
- Let it dry for about 90 seconds before laying on your pillow, smearing it, etc.
-Let it work while you sleep!
I noticed results pretty early on, after about 2-3 weeks. I could tell my lashes were growing, and the progress only continued. Now I have MAJOR lash growth and with one coat of mascara they are so long that they sometimes hit the tops of my eyelids! I'm continuing to use the product and can't wait to see further progress! Here are some before + after shots.
BEFORE - it ain't pretty, y'all! Also note that this was taken in late winter, hence #pale and WHY is this bathroom light so horrid?! (you can see I still had a few stray lash extensions lingering but aside from that, my lashes were virtually unnoticeable)
