In 2016, Rodan + Fields (or simply R+F), the company behind the famous Proactiv brand, has launched Lash Boost. It uses a proprietary blend of keratin, biotin, and peptides to boost your eyelash health and make them appear fuller, darker, and younger. new product to compete with other eyelash enhancers available now on the market.
It’s a relatively new product, though, so there have not been that much reviews about it yet. But according to some women and other review sites that we have read, it’s a product that works.
Lash Boost comes in a tube costing around $150. It’s an expensive product, but that one tube can last for several months. And with proper and regular use, you will notice visible results in 4-8 weeks.
Probably the best thing about this product is that you don’t need any prescription in order to use it unlike other eyelash growth serums, such as Latisse.
Furthermore, clinical studies showed patients 90% increase in eyelash thickness/volume, 85% increase in eyelash length, and 63% increase in eyelash darkness.
There haven’t been any side effects noted with the use of this eyelash serum. In fact, it is marketed as clinically and ophthalmologist-tested, and found to be safe, non-irritating, and have no eye-color changing side effects.
However, since Lash Boost has not been on the market yet for long, we can’t guarantee for sure that this product is totally risk-free. Knowing the possible side effects may help you plan and manage them. If you experience any of the following, immediately stop the use of the product and consult with your healthcare provider.
For some, especially if you have very sensitive eyes, a mild tingling sensation may occur. But this is said to disappear with continued use. Just make sure that none of the serum will get into your eyes to avoid this side effect. If, for instance, some of the product accidentally gets into your eyes, rinse them thoroughly with water. Some may also experience temporary eye redness for the first few days, especially if too much product is used. See a doctor if redness and itchiness persists.
Since Lash Boost is applied closely to the eye, it is also possible for your eyes and/or skin around the eyes to become irritated while using the product.
Make sure to use it correctly, and wipe away the excess before applying it to your lash line. And for those with nut allergies or any health concerns, please consult with your doctor prior to using the product. Lash Boost contains almond that may not be safe for those with nut allergies.

Rodan + Fields is a well-known American company specializing in skincare products. Lash Boost is one of their latest products launched in 2016, which promises to make lashes appear fuller, darker, and longer and is available for use for almost all skin type. However, despite its tempting claims, we can’t totally recommend this product to those who want to get beautiful-looking eyelashes. It’s a new product and still unproven. We can’t even find reasonable amount of reviews to say that this product is really well worth a try. If you are considering Lash Boost, though, we advise that you see your doctor first before trying it.
