Traditional lash lift services around the city costs about Php 1,500.00 and up. I bought my own lash lift kit for only Php 499.00 at Shopee in hopes of saving myself some cash.
The instructions come with the package itself. There are four vials that comes with it: first, the perming lotion; second, the fixing serum; third, the conditioner; and lastly, the glue remover. Just like how the traditional lash lifting process works, you have to do it on your own or ask for a friend’s help. First you have to glue your lashes on the lash pads provided, which I found to be extremely hard to do. Gluing my lashes took the most of my time here! But in the end, I was able to do it. I worked with one eye at a time. So when I was able to glue on my lashes, I started to apply the perming lotion, and left it for 20 minutes. As the timer sets off, I cleaned my lashes with a q-tip and proceeded to apply the second vial which is the fixing serum. It’s supposed to fix your lashes’ upward position after the perming lotion has disbonded the haircells of your lashes. I left that for 10 minutes, and cleaned with a q-tip. I then clean wiped everything off with a cotton pad soaked in the glue remover that comes with the package. And the results?
The package comes with an instructions manual, which I followed. In addition to this, I did not wet my lashes for 24 hours just to make sure the product cures properly (just like any other hair treatment).
I am writing two months from when I applied the product and my lashes are still curled, and I did not experience any sort of infection or adverse effects on and around my eyes.
The product claims it can last up to three months. I think it’s permanent up until you grow a new set of lashes, in which case you’ll need to reapply the kit. But in any case, your money’s worth will give you multiple applications, considering the amount of product you’ll receive. It’s a good investment.
The product indeed does its job, and at a cheaper price. However, use the product with extreme caution. You are applying it in a very sensitive and delicate area of your body, so you must always practice a high degree of care. Don’t rush and always follow the instructions. Although it may work perfectly just like in the lash lifting salons out there, I still find the process extremely excruciating to do. It’s a pain in the ass. But considering the amount that I’ll be able to save by doing it myself, and that I only have to do it once in every three months, I say it’s still worth to buy and do.
Good luck and happy lash lifting!
