5 Best Cleansers to Use on Your Eyelash Extensions

by Joan Wong

We all know lash extensions are expensive and you also spend a lot of time on the procedure. So, lash aftercare is an important step and highly advised! 

One of the best ways to maintain your luscious and long eyelash extensions is to clean them with a gentle makeup remover. Yes! Even though you are not wearing any makeup. It is best to wash your lashes for healthy and clean lashes. And most importantly, cleaning all the dirt, debris and oil buildup accumulated during the day.

How often do you have to wash your eyelash extensions

We recommend you wash your lash extensions every three days or 2 to 3 times a week. But if you wear makeup, it is best to wash them daily. This is to avoid makeup residue buildup in your lash extensions causing the bond to weaken and fall off, prematurely. 

What’s the best way to remove eye makeup

On How to Clean Mascara Off Your Eyelash Extensions, we talked about the importance of using cleansers when removing your mascara. But the truth is, we need to clean our extensions every 3 days to help keep our eyelash extensions last longer. And the best way to do that is to use lash cleansers. But which one? Here, we listed five of the best lash extension-friendly cleansers:

Borboleta Lash Bath - Foam Cleanser

This foam cleanser is formulated to replenish and hydrate your lashes without damaging your lash extensions. Some of the ingredients used are amino acids and moisture-binding hyaluronic acid known for their strengthening and conditioning properties.

people with sensitive eyes.

Keratin Lash Shampoo

We greatly advised that you only use oil-free eye makeup and water washable eye makeup but if you use waterproof eye makeup without meaning to, how can you remove it? The answer would be this Keratin Lash Shampoo. 

It contains Keratin and Panthenol known for their skin conditioning. This lash bath shampoo removes dirt, oil, and makeup without irritating and stinging your sensitive eye area. It will not leave any pore-clogging residue as it completely removes all residue even your waterproof eye makeup. 

Just remember to shake well before using it and rinse thoroughly about 5-6 times. Then pat dry using a lint-free cloth or makeup remover cloth. Just be gentle!
