Thirty Days of the Dime Eyelash Boost Serum

For the past month I have been using the Dime Eyelash Boost Serum to test out how it performed. It is a serum that is applied each night and I have been using it as my last step in my skincare routine in the evenings. I figured that as long as I placed it with my moisturizers and other skin care items there was less of a chance that I would forget it.

And with products like this continued application is sort of key to getting them to perform. Before I get into my month long experience, let’s take a quick look at the product claims.

Now I did a first use post of this serum when I started the trial if you’d like to look back for reference (I’ll be using the before pictures of my lashes from there.) The application is a thin brush. The brush is very good at applying the product to the base of the lashes. It is perfectly designed for that. And I know that applying serum to the base of the lashes helps them grow strong. It was somewhat of an annoying application to apply to the lashes themselves. I found myself wishing for a wand like a mascara would have. I think that would have been better. I often ended up with kind of clumpy droplets on my lashes with the application. I think with a mascara brush I would have achieved greater distribution on the lashes.

As for longer lashes, I can’t say that I see that much difference. I will say that the lashes feel healthier. And they might feel a little fuller. which is not a bad result actually. My lashes were fairly healthy going into this trial and they just got healthier with the serum. The amino acids, aloe, Vitamin B5 and various fruit and vegetable extracts all conspired to make my lashes soft and healthy. I think that if my lashes had been less healthy I would have seen more of a difference.

And that seems to be the trick with these eye lash growth serums.

I spent a while trying to come to terms with false eye lashes and only succeeded in ripping out the bulk of my lashes and discovering that there are a few lash glues that i am allergic to. As an aside, let me tell you, finding out you are allergic to lash glue while using it on your eyes is not the way to go. even though it feels strange to test stuff like that on your arm do it. It is much better to have a reaction on your inner arm then on your eyelids. I also ended up deciding that false lashes just aren’t my thing. I like the look, I’m just going to content myself with my lashes and better mascaras.

The point of the adventure was that I ripped out many of my lashes and irritated my lash line and then spent quite some time growing my lashes back. If you are in a state where you are trying to grow back lashes or improve the health of poor lashes, then I would recommend something like this. Is it my favorite? No.

It sort of sits in the good for you but not spectacular range. For growth I would go for the Grande lash serum as it worrks fantastically well and for general healthy lashes and lash conditioning (to prevent breakage) I would go to the Dermelect version. The Dermelect has a Mascara like wand so you can ensure even distribution and it really keeps the lashes healthy. Both products are spectacular.

This Dime Beauty Version is a good lash conditioner. After a month of use, the tube of Dime Beauty eyelash Boost Serum is mostly empty of product. There are a few drops left so i will use them up and let the tube go. I would use this product if it came into my life again, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase it. It is a fine product, I just know that there are better ones out there.

First Use Dime Eyelash Boost Serum

I love long silky lashes but I will be honest, I am not a fan of false eye lashes. I have pretty decent eyelashes to start with, but when I try to add in false eye lashes, I inevitably end up ripping out my own eye lashes and then, I don’t have decent lashes of my own any more.

Which sort of defeats the whole point.

The last time I gave in and used false lashes for a while, I love the way they look, hated losing my lashes and tried a lash boost serum. It was the Grande Cosmetics Lash Enhancing serum and it was fantastic. I have also used the Dermelect XL Lash Volumizer, which I think made my lashes really healthy. I thas been a while since I’ve used a lash enhancing serum though. However i am always willing to extend my lashes, as long as I keep them healthy.

This Dime Eyelash Boost Serum came in a recent Boxy Charm. I’ll be honest, I’d never heard of the brand before. According to the brand…

Apply nightly to the base of the upper and lower eyelashes. Continue using to aid the condition and appearance of your lashes.

Apply every other day if a mild tingling sensation occurs. As Eyelash Boost gets low, shake the bottle to ensure the product is on the application wand before use.

Caution: For external use only. Avoid direct contact with the eye. If irritation occurs, rinse with cool water and discontinue use. Consult with your physician if you are pregnant or nursing, being treated for any eye-related disorder, or actively undergoing cancer treatment. Keep out of reach of children.


I admit when it comes to my eyes I am kind of picky so I went through the ingredients list with a dine toothed comb. I found nothing I was allergic to on the list and then I tested it of night on the inside of my arm. There was no adverse reaction so I decided to go ahead and try it out. (I also made sure to use it in the bathroom near a sink so that if any burning occurred I could rinse out my eyes fast.

I like long lashes, but I’m not going to make myself blind to get them.

The tube is heavy feeling in the hand. I know it is probably a marketing ploy but the heavier tube did feel more luxe in the hand. I also like the sleek black tube with the gold lettering. It is an attractive looking product. The wand is a very fine point brush. There is no real scent to the product. I applied the product on the base of my lashes and then brushed it along the actual lashes themselves, as directed.

There was no stinging or burning sensations. No tingling of any kind. It simply felt wet. I sealed the tube up and then left the bathroom. It took about five minutes for the Dime Serum to dry down on my lashes. I did go a bit heavy handed on this first application since I wanted to see if i would have any problems. For me, since i routinely wear a silk sleep mask to bed, the dry time of the product is important.

After five minutes my lashes were dry and felt a bit stiff. I brushed them with my finger and the stiffness faded. I think it was just the consequence of having something dry on the lashes. A quickly brush over the lashes with my finger and the stiffness wasn’t an issue. (and by brush I mostly mean I ran the side of my finger over my lashes by holding my finger in front of my eyes and blinking).

Clearly I am not going to see results in just one use, but i wanted to try the serum out and see how it would effect me before committing to a month long trial. Plus I find that if I post the before and first use pictures here there is less of a likelihood I will accidentally erase them and lose them. Since there were no ill effects then i will be trying the Dime Lash Boosting Serum for the next thirty days. At the end of March I’ll post again and we’ll see what sort of results my lashes show. But for a first use, this product performed pretty well. I’m actually kind of excited about this trial. When I used the Grande Lashes, it was because I had damaged my own lashes and needed to regrow them. Now my lashes are healthy, so it is all about keeping them healthy and seeing how long they can grow. And while repair is sometimes necessary, this is just plain fun.
