A Deep Dive Into the Super Prep DUO Bundle
Unfortunately, every Lash Tech knows the struggle of running out of their favourite Pretreatment product at the most inconvenient time. And what’s worse than that? Running out of two products at the same time! Why might this happen? Well, this could be because you’re using a combination of different Pretreatment products when trying to achieve the perfect clean base for your lash extensions application. To combat this, we have created a handy bundle with two of our best Pretreatment products to make your eyelash re-supply easier and save you money in the long run. Our Super Prep DUO bundle of Cleanser and Primer is the perfect pair when it comes to prepping eyelash extensions, and here’s why:
Cleanser is used by Lash Artists to strip away all of the oils, proteins and traces of makeup from a client’s eyelashes to ensure excellent retention. Clean natural lashes are necessary to ensure your Lash Glue can form strong bonds without any interference from oils or makeup which will compromise those bonds. After all, you don’t want your client to leave your lash salon only for their new extensions to slide right off their natural lashes because there is still oils and residue on the natural lashes which have compromised the eyelash glue’s bonds. Using Cleanser will help you to make sure that these obstructing factors have been removed to create a perfectly clean surface to work with and apply lash extensions to.
When using Cleanser, you can either choose to directly apply a drop onto a Micro Fibre Brush, or, place a drop of Cleanser onto a Glue Stone and dip the brush into it. It’s also important to make sure you remove any excess product onto a cotton pad before application. Then, using a second Micro Fiber Brush or Cleansing Applicator, gently sandwich the natural lashes between the two brushes and softly sweep from the base to the tips, with careful focus on the roots of the lashes.
Once you have finished cleansing your client’s lashes, not only have you removed all the oils and dirt, but you will have also removed any moisture from the eyelashes too. For the best lash extension retention, your client’s lashes should be hydrated and not brittle, you don’t want any potential issues such as breakage. Well, this is where Primer works its magic.
To use Primer, simply follow the same steps as you did when using Cleanser, but of course, swapping out the product. Make sure you thoroughly brush the Primer through the natural lashes for consistent and even results. Lash Primer rehydrates and adds moisture back into the natural eyelashes, providing the optimal surface for the lash glue to bond with. Furthermore, Primer also helps to speed up your glue’s drying time. For context, because the natural lashes are dehydrated, Cleanser will slow down the drying time of your lash glue and cause it to form brittle bonds. Whereas Primer will speed up your glue’s drying time because it rehydrates the lashes after Cleanser, and restores it back to what it’s supposed to be for the lash glue to form strong bonds. You can also use more Primer on the lashes during treatment if the humidity level in your salon is super low and you need the added moisture.
