Eyelash serums have been all the rage recently and there are a ton of options out there. But one in particular seems to stand out from the rest.
Lash Boost from Rodan + Fields was released in October of 2016 and has already generated over $200 million in sales. That’s actually more than the most popular mascara in all of 2016.
What is Lash Boost?
Lash Boost is a serum that, when used nightly, promises to make your lashes look longer, darker and fuller. It works by moisturizing, nourishing and protecting your lashes.
That means you can have beautiful, glamorous lashes that are all-natural and all yours without shelling out for expensive lash extensions and spending hours every few weeks getting fills.
How to use Lash Boost
Lash Boost should be applied to clean, dry eyelids. You will need to completely remove any makeup and mascara first.
One swipe above the lash line on each eye every night is all it takes.
Swipe the serum right where your lashes meet the skin. The ingredients need to get into the skin to actually be effective.
For the best results, alternate which eye you start on each night. Otherwise, your lashes could grow longer on one side and be uneven.
Don’t apply to your lower lashes. Some of the serum will naturally migrate down to them while you are sleeping.
And you shouldn’t need to re-dip the wand while applying. You definitely do not want to apply too much or you could cause unnecessary irritation. Applying a lot at once or applying more than once a day won’t give you any better results than just following the instructions.
To avoid applying too much, wipe the tip of the wand against the inside of the tube as you pull it out. If there is a concentrated droplet on the tip of the brush, then there is too much serum on it. If you notice any dry residue the next morning, then you applied too much.
Absolutely do not put Lash Boost directly in your eye. If it does get in your eye, rinse with cool water.
How do I use Lash Boost along with other skin care products?
Remove any makeup, then use your cleanser and toner.
Apply Lash Boost.
Wait 90 seconds before applying any kind of eye cream or anything else to the eye area.
Apply any other serums or facial creams that you are using.
How soon will I see results?
First of all, you’re only going to see results if you are consistently using the serum every single night. You may start seeing results as soon as 4 weeks, but most people see noticeable results at 8 weeks. By 12 weeks, everyone else is going to be asking you where you get your lash extensions done and you can say “oh no! they’re all natural”! 😉
How long does Lash Boost last?
One tube of Lash Boost is guaranteed to last 60 days.
That said, I have seen several people get 3, 4, even 5 months out of a single tube. The problem with stretching a tube out that long is that the serum loses its efficacy over time once the tube has been opened. So while there may still be serum in the tube after 3 months, if you continue using it after it has been open that long, your lashes might start slowly going back to the way they were before.
I recommend starting a new tube every 3 months after opening.
Does Lash Boost actually work?
Yes! I have tried it myself and watched many friends try it with fantastic results. My full personal review will be posted soon as a separate blog post.
Lash Boost has also been clinically tested in an 8-week study in the United States. Results showed the following:
- 90% noticed an improvement in the appearance of full lashes
- 85% noticed an improvement in the appearance of long lashes
- 63% noticed an improvement in the appearance of darker lashes
How much does Lash Boost cost?
Lash Boost retails at $150, but it’s super easy to get it for less.
Preferred customers get it for $135 and free shipping.
If you aren’t already a preferred customer, then there is a one-time fee of $19.95 to become one. With Lash Boost, you will actually save money by ordering as a preferred customer, even if you never order anything else ever again.
Here’s the math…
Still sound expensive? It’s a premium product with premium results that have been clinically tested. And this is one of those cases where you get what you pay for. Also, when you consider that the tube will most likely last 3 months, then the price doesn’t seem so outrageous.
Finally, Independent Consultants get an even bigger discount on the product, but they do not get free shipping. Since there is a minimum cost of $45 to become a consultant, then this actually turns out to be the most expensive way to try the product the first time. $45 + $112 + 9.95 = $166.95. However, you can save money over time if you are using more than just Lash Boost. I don’t recommend signing up as a consultant for the discount unless you are actually interested in having an online skin care franchise.
What are the ingredients in Lash Boost?
- Panthenol and Sodium Hyaluronate helps your lashes to be more flexible and resilient by attracting moisture to the lashes

Lash Boost does contain almond oil, so you may not be able to use it if you have a nut allergy.
Can Lash Boost be used on eyebrows?
Yes! After one swipe on each eye, apply whatever is left on the brush to your eyebrows for the same benefits.
Is Lash Boost safe?
Yes, Lash Boost has been clinically and ophthalmologist tested and was found to be safe and non-irritating.
All of the ingredients are FDA approved.
However, if you are allergic to nuts, then you may not be able to use it because of the almond oil.
Like with any cosmetic product, if you have any medical concerns or are pregnant or breastfeeding, then double-check the ingredients with your doctor before using it.
What are potential side effects of Lash Boost?
Some customers have experienced redness, itchiness or slight irritation when starting to use Lash Boost. That is usually because their skin needs to adjust to the new ingredients.
If you experience any of that, just stop using Lash Boost for a day or two. You probably need to ease into it and work your way up to using it nightly.
If you experience any bad irritation though, then stop using it right away and go see a doctor.
Can Lash Boost change my eye color?
Nope, Lash Boost is will not change your eye color or cause your irises to darken.
This question comes up because medicated prescription lash serums and eye drops for glaucoma have turned some people’s blue eyes brown. The ingredient that causes that is bimatoprost, which is not present in Lash Boost.
What happens if I stop using Lash Boost?
Your eyelashes will gradually revert back to how they were before you started using Lash Boost. If you want to keep your results, then you will need to continue using the serum.
Can I use Lash Boost if I wear contact lenses?
Yes, but if you apply it while your contact lenses are in, wait 90 seconds after applying Lash Boost before taking them out.
Can I use Lash Boost if my eyelashes are tinted or I have eyelash extensions?
Yes. I started using Lash Boost before I had my eyelash extensions removed. It did make the extensions fall out a bit faster though.
Can I share a tube of Lash Boost with my spouse/sibling/friend/etc?
Absolutely not. That would not be sanitary. And for something that is applied so close to the eyes, you definitely do not want to risk the possibility of an infection from sharing the wand or the tube.
How to buy Lash Boost
Lash Boost needs to be purchased online from an Independent Consultant’s website, but it is packaged and shipped directly from Rodan + Fields.
If you already know a Rodan + Fields consultant, then get in contact with them for their website address.
If you need to find a consultant, then you can request information from Rodan + Fields, or you can go to my Rodan + Fields website since I’m an independent consultant.
Can I buy Lash Boost on eBay or Amazon?
Technically, there are people selling Lash Boost on both eBay and Amazon, but I would never buy it there. There is no guarantee that what you are getting is the real product and hasn’t been tampered with.
For something so expensive and also something that is applied so close to the eyes, I would only ever buy it directly from Rodan + Fields.
Another benefit of buying Lash Boost directly from Rodan + Fields is that they offer a very generous 60-day return policy. You can open the product, try it out, and if you don’t like it, send it back for a refund.
