Oil or No Oil?
That is the question.
The first thing you should determine when choosing a suitable lash remover for lash extensions is whether or not you want to use an oil-based lash remover. Though most eye lashes remover gels or liquids on the market contain some type of oil, there are oil-free options available for women who aren’t comfortable with applying oil to their eyes. It’s usually the case that those who wear contacts are wary about putting oil anywhere near their eyes. And that’s understandable. However, it’s important to consider lash remover oil is typically more effective. This is because the oil interacts with the glue to rapidly break down its tackiness. If you’re using waterproof mascara on top of your lash extensions, you’ll definitely want to choose an oil-based lash remover solution for maximum effectiveness. This is because the oil acts as a lash remover and eye makeup remover. If you’re worried about residual oil seeping into your eyes, make sure you look for a clean-rinse formula.
Individual Lashes or Lash Strips?
Another factor you’ll need to take into consideration when selecting an eyelash glue remover for lash extensions is whether you use individual eyelashes or eyelash strips. If you’re more accustomed to using individual lashes, an individual lash glue remover with a precision wand is more appropriate.
Take our Plume Individual Lash Remover for example. Similar to a mascara wand but adjustable for better precision, the applicator that comes with this lash remover allows you to target individual lash extensions without affecting your natural lashes. If you're using lash extension strips, we recommend choosing a more immersive lash remover, such as our Gentle Refreshing Cleansing Water. Formulated to remove lash extensions and eye makeup at the same time, this lash remover liquid combines water with a cleansing oil suspension for better penetration. Infused with 7 different plant extracts, the liquid leaves behind no trace of residue but it also immerses lashes as it’s rubbed in to soothe and soften the skin around the eyes, prevent irritation and reduce redness. We even offer a brush-on cluster lash glue remover for ladies who prefer cluster lashes to individuals or strips.
Is it Clean, Gentle & Cruelty-Free?
Not all lash removers are created equal. Some contain heavy oils and other ingredients that can clog pores. This is why we suggest looking for an eyelash remover that meets your standards when it comes to purity, potency, and cleanliness. Safe, clean, and cruelty-free, our lash remover formulas are popular among eco-conscious women. Unlike other brands, we never test our products on animals. And when we say never, we mean it. BEYELIAN beauty products and more are all responsibly produced from the finest and purest ingredients. Our formulas are fragrance-free, dye-free, and alcohol-free. No burning. No drying. No irritation whatsoever.
There are so many eyelash remover options available that it can be overwhelming to pick one that will work for you. Sometimes you have to try them out for yourself to see which removal method you’re most comfortable with. When shopping for a lash remover to remove lash extensions, remember to look at the ingredients and decide which application method is more suitable for the removal process. Lash glue adhesive stands no chance against Beyelian lash remover products. We have taken the time and put in the work to create lash removers that make it simple and easy to remove lash extensions at home.
We hope our how-to guide has helped you decide on a lash remover. Whether you choose an oily lash remover liquid, lash remover serum, or oil-free eye makeup remover for lash extensions, your best bet is to choose a cruelty-free option made from clean ingredients found to be unharmful to the eyes. This is especially imperative if you happen to have any sensitivities or if you wear contacts. You certainly don’t want to expose the sensitive skin around your eyes (or your eyes themselves) to any toxic ingredients that may cause redness, blurry vision, itching, or irritation. Stop scrubbing and rubbing. Get yourself a lash glue remover that dissolves and eliminates adhesive-like magic.
