Hey there, Internet!
No idea why I stopped using lash boosters a few years back, maybe because in the end I thought they did not help? Maybe because I usually wear falsies anyways? But when I was browsing my local DM (drugstore) these two lovely things somehow jumped into my cart and I took them home with me and tried them for a month. And yes, Alverde is cruelty free!
Simple packaging of both the products
Alverde Over Night Coffein Serum: (8ml for 3.95€) Applicator equals some mascara wands, description says it includes benefitial oils and berry-wax. Promises to regenerate and strengthen your lashes. Clear to slightly milky pigmentation with a hint of sweet scent to it.
Alverde Lash Booster: (3ml for 4.95€) Has a brush applicator, applies and also feels like some clear-colored liquid eyeliner. They recommend using it 1-2 times each day right at the lashes (roots), described as a serum that will result in longer and fuller lashes.
Both sadly won’t say how long they are useable after being opened for the first time so I would go with the cycles you toss your mascara and eyeliner or get a new one as soon as they start to smell, feel or look strange.

Overnight serum applied during night routine, lash booster used during night and day routine. While the pictures might only show a little difference I definitely noticed some obvious changes, my lashes do feel stronger and I think they also grew a bit thicker and longer. It might seem to me this way simply because I know that I used the boosters though. In the end at least the overnight coffein serum (the one that is applied like a mascara) could as well be used at daytimes instead of mascara when you go for your falsies, it adds another layer to your lashes so they actually do look longer and fuller while still adding some benefitial oils to your lashes. There are some lash primers out there that probably will do the same but this one definitely will stay in my routine and will be used a lot. I also bought a backup of the lash booster (the one with brush applicator) and probably will use it for a few more months as well and when it is empty will rethink again if it is worth the money for me.
Do you use anything to take better care of your lashes? Have a nice evening!
