Being a nut about spelling, I often cringe at the weird spelling that manufacturers use in order to come up with a memorable name for their product.
Featuring the Boots No 7 Fanomenal Lash Review!
Case in point is Boots No 7 Fanomenal Lash. The big question is this (in correct spelling, mind you): “Is Boots No 7 Fanomenal Lash PHENOMENAL enough to make a FAN out of me?”
How to Use Boots No 7 Fanomenal Lash
The application instructions are simple enough.
You brush the product at the base of your eyelashes on both your upper and lower eyelids. But you should stay away from the inner corner of your eyelids.
The manufacturer also claims that the product is good for your eyebrows. It’s affordable too at $15.99.

Review – Pros and Cons Boots No 7 Fanomenal Lash
Now, let’s go down to the nitty gritty.
Just to be sure, I performed a skin test first to make sure that I’m not allergic to the product.
Thankfully, I didn’t get a reaction so I proceeded to use it as directed in the instructions. The product is very easy to apply and it dries very fast and clear.
I used Boots No 7 Fanomenal Lash for two weeks and what was noticeable is my existing lashes becoming fuller and thicker. I did not notice any significant changes in length though.
On the third week, this is when I made a big boo boo.
While I was applying the product before going to bed, I ended up getting some of the serum in my right eye and it painfully stung. Although I washed it out fast with water, my right eye became very red and persisted until the next morning.
Not only that, the skin of my right eyelid had swollen up. I ended up going to my ophthalmologist and he said that, aside from an irritation, I experienced a delayed hypersensitivity reaction to the product.
He ordered me to stop using it right then and there.
I was a bit disappointed because I was seeing some improvements in my lashes, although not in the length department.
Anyway, if you are suffering from allergies, I recommend that you stay away from Boots No 7 Fanomenal Lash.
If you are allergy-free, give it a try and tell me how it worked out for you in the full eight weeks required to use it.
I can say for certain though that it does help in conditioning and moisturizing your lashes.
