It definitely works, it is just painfully slow for me.

I've been on topical for 13 months and oral for 9 months....you would think I would see wonders in that time, but I've just had OK improvements, not even noticeable unless you look closely. Will probably need to be on 2yrs for a decent beard and 3yrs for a good beard.

I find it tedious to put on so only do it once a day. My dose of oral is 2.5mg.

Currently it hasn't been worth the effort...I might feel differently in 6 months. At least it is accumulative progression so it is a matter of just keep going on.

Eyelashes it made much longer...Best improvement

Eyebrows improved slightly...if I could improve density by 25% it would be a great improvement

Beard maybe doubled on my cheeks, but still doesn't cast a shadow.


I've found a new cope now with retinol...but will just do both.

Cope it's a vasodilator use it with retin a and your skin will be god tier
Youve never even used it before how do you know lmao. And i don't have foam available where i'm at so i have to settle for the liquid that contains propylene glycol which ages your skin

I’ve just started using it this week, will continue to until I get some decent growth for stubble
will be using the foam version once a day tho to minimise any side effects

oral can lower libido or something like that

raypeaters warned me about it
You don't need libido without stubble in 2021 anyway.

I clean shave(razor) about every 2 weeks...I am the only clean shaven adult male I know
