PETER THOMAS ROTH “LASHES TO DIE FOR” – PTR’s full line of clinical skin care products are well-known to spa-goers and viewers of the shopping networks. In addition to a full array of facial and body treatment formulations, PTR joined the “new and improved lashes” bandwagon about a year ago with “Lashes To Die For,” one of the many Latisse-wannabe formulations on the market with prostaglandin-like ingredients that promises to lengthen, thicken and darken sparse lashes.  But does this product deliver like Latisse? 

Having been the lucky recipient of a large raffle basket of PTR products (generously provided by FaceLogic Spa in Mt. Kisco, NY) at the “2009 Best of Westchester” event in July 2009, I was thrilled at my good fortune, but pushed all products aside when I saw the LTDF. I was ecstatic. Knowing what Latisse does for lashes, I hoped for the same results from the PTR wand. Diligently, I applied a thin line every evening (I am a master of compliance) to both upper eyelids and waited patiently for new growth. It took about two months to notice any visible difference, but the wait was worthwhile. I started to detect longer lashes and longer-lasting lashes; less fallout. The final reward came from one of my closest friends who at dinner noticed and asked what mascara I was using.

FINAL VERDICT – GGI (GOTTA GET IT) – If you have short lashes or lash fallout, this product does deliver on length and wear. It seems to extend the growth-rate of natural lashes. However, my lashes are neither darker nor thicker than before, just longer. The real benefit of this product–at least this tube–is its longevity. I started using the LTDF in August and five months later, I am just starting to reach the end of the tube. That works out to about $25/month. Not a bad price point when comparing it to prescription-based Latisse.
