Do Take Care in the Removal Process
Removing eyelash extensions needs to be done carefully. Here are expert steps to follow to ensure successful removals.
- After applying the eyelash extension glue remover, you must wait two to five minutes before touching the extensions. If you touch them, you will cause a blooming effect, spreading glue across your natural lashes.

Don’t Use The Cheapest Lash Glue Extension Remover
Removing lashes isn’t difficult, but it can become a problem if you choose the wrong products. Don’t GO for the cheapest on the drugstore rack when choosing an eyelash glue remover.
Glue removers are the most important factor in successful lash extension removals. Make sure your glue remover cleanses. Irritated eyes can reject eyelash extensions in the future. So, choose a glue remover that cleanses your skin as you use it. Make sure no ingredient can irritate the eyes. Read the warning labels before purchasing.
Do Buy Oil-Based Cleansers For Post Extension Removal
Using oil-based cleansers after applying lashes is a bad idea because oils break down the glue’s bond. However, when you are removing lashes, oil-based products are great. The same effect is applied after removing extensions. It makes removing excess glue simple and quick. Your eyes are not likely to become irritated or inflamed using oil-based cleansers.
Don’t Pull With Your Fingers
As mentioned previously, you should not pull at lash extensions with your finger when removing them. Doing so can irritate your eyes and cause lash glue to spread. Make sure you always use tweezers and pay close attention.
