How it works
Basically this method is simply using the oil to gently and gradually loosen the bond of the glue, so they’ll eventually just slide off, leaving your natural lashes safe and healthy (rather than pulling and twisting them which could pull out your natural lashes prematurely). We know that not everyone has cotton buds, makeup rounds and mascara wands on hand so wanted to ensure nobody had to improvise and end up pulling lashes out (causing damage to natural lashes).
The key is to give it time to work and not try to rush it but pulling or twisting the extensions. After you’ve steamed your face safely, you could do the cotton swab step while you’re watching TV so that you take your time because it can actually be quite relaxing.
Compared to a Salon Removal…
If you get a lash removal in our salon we use a professional grade glue remover which is safe to use around the eyes but can cause stinging if left for too long. It basically breaks down the glue much more quickly than the oil, so your extensions come off within a few minutes.
Both methods result in your extensions being removed, the difference is that the professional glue remover is much faster. Glue remover can only be used by a trained professional, this oil method is safer to do at home.
