CLEANSING AND MOISTURIZING: HOW TO CARE FOR LASH EXTENSIONS

CLEANSING AND MOISTURIZING: HOW TO CARE FOR LASH EXTENSIONS

To let our skin breathe, we all need to take a break from makeup and beauty products every so often. Today, we’re delighted to share some expert tips from Shelley, one of our corporate training stylists, about her own beauty, cleansing and moisturizing routines and how to clean eyelash extensions.

“Go-To” Products for a Fresh Face and Lashes

As we’ve mentioned before, not all beauty products are safe to use with lash extensions. But don’t fret! We have some incredible products here at The Lash Lounge that we not only sell in our salons, but that we use and love ourselves.

In fact, if you’ve been tuning into our weekly #TrainingTakeoverTuesday stories on Instagram, you have probably seen Shelley share her favorite cleansing products to keep her face fresh and her lashes clean.

As she mentioned, Shelley usually wears a full face of makeup each day. When it comes time to cleanse, her “go-to” product is The Lash Lounge’s Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover Gel. The great thing about this product is it’s not only incredible for safely removing eye makeup (yes, even with lash extensions), but it’s also wonderful for removing all-over face makeup. Then, when she’s ready to get her lash line squeaky clean, she uses our favorite dynamic duo: our Eyelash Foaming Cleanser + Brush.

How to Safely Cleanse and Moisturize With Lash Extensions

Let’s look back at Shelley’s cleansing routine. When it’s time for her to wipe her face and gently remove the cleanser from her skin and around her eye area, she does this with a lint-free cloth like the MakeUp Eraser.

Why use this type of cloth over a regular washcloth? A polyester-blend cloth won’t catch, pull or snag your lashes. So, the next time you’re leaving your lash refill appointment, ask your stylist if they carry a cloth like this. If they do, be sure to grab one. Otherwise, make sure to pick one up the next time you’re at the store. Trust us, you’ll never go back to a regular cloth again!

Like Shelley, most of us want to keep our skin and area around our eyes moisturized. But how do we do that while also keeping that extra moisture and oil-based products away from our lashes? See how Shelley does it! She strategically keeps it away from her eyes, especially her eyelids for optimal eyelash extension care.


We hope these few simple tips will help you care for your eyelash extensions, keep your skin clean, moisturized and looking flawless!

Stay tuned to our Instagram each Tuesday as Shelley (and the rest of our fabulous training tribe) share more of their knowledge and fun behind-the-scenes moments from life at The Lash Lounge!
