Spend Or Skip: Rodan + Fields Lash Boost (18 weeks)
It’s been six, not four, weeks since my last Lash Boost update. I stretched the time between posts in hopes I would have some notable changes to report. So, here goes…
My lashes are not darker (I think this is just not in the cards for my blonde eyelashes, alas) or longer (though I’m okay with that; they’d became so long by the three-month mark, they were verging on freakish). I do, however, think they are thicker, which I’m happy about. When I apply mascara, I no longer have that spider-leg effect, with annoying gaps between the long and average-length lashes.
I also believe that applying the treatment to just the outer third of my top lashline has helped temper some of the crazy-long fringe I was getting in the inner corners of my eyes. Now, my longest lashes are near the outer corners, which, on me, is more flattering. And I could not live without a spoolie brush like this one to comb through and separate my lashes after I’ve applied mascara. A downside to long lashes (just like long hair): tangles.
One bonus: Applying the serum more conservatively has made my Lash Boost last. At 18 weeks, I am still on my original tube. I believe easing up also finally helped with my eye dryness (a decrease in pollen count couldn't have hurt either). But I’ve not had any irritating symptoms since early June.
A number of you have requested photos, so I've posted a few to my @medium.blonde Instagram account. The BEFORE is from month 1—I didn't take any when my lashes were true Lash Boost virgins. Sorry. The AFTER is from week 19. But I think it will still give you a good sense of the progress...and why I don't want my lashes to grow any longer than they currently are!
Thanks for all the feedback, updates, advice and questions. Keep them coming; I think we are learning from one another. And if you're new to MediumBlonde and want to track my Lash Boost progress from day one, you can start here
