Prolong Lash Cleanser is loved worldwide by eyelash professionals and clients alike. The reason? It is an honest and hardworking cleanser from humble beginnings.
Created to solve a problem
The problem: Why are my clients extensions falling out so fast?
Back in 2006, our founder struggled to find a product that she could recommend to her clients that were safe for use on eyes and actually oil free.
The full story of how Prolong Lash came to be can be found here.
Prolong Lash Cleanser does just what it says it does
As many of us know, keeping your eyelash extensions clean not only extends their lifespan but also increases hygiene of the eye area and reduced chances of infection. We also know that oils contribute to the premature breakdown of eyelash extension glue. This is where Prolong Lash Cleanser really shines, a truly Oil Free product specifically designed to be used with eyelash extensions.
Not just for Eyelash Extensions
Wash your natural lashes
Eyelash extensions are not the reason a lash line develops build up. There are many reasons why natural lashes need to be thoroughly cleansed twice daily.
The job of natural lashes is to protect your eyes from dirt, dust and debris, therefore they build up in the lash line. Sometimes when wearing extensions the collection of these particles in the lash line is exacerbated as there is generally more surface area for them to collect on.
Use of oily makeup and cosmetics can clog pores, and block hair follicles.
And of course, our old friend the ‘Lash Mite’ is always there to keep us company. Everyone has a small amount of Demodex mites on their eyelids and lash line, in order to clean up dead skin cells, but when eye hygiene is diminished, they can overpopulate and become problematic.
So whether you’re having a break from extensions, decided they aren’t for you or have never even worn them before, eyelash hygiene of the natural lash line should still be on your priority list.
Remove your make up
Paired with our snag free make up remover cloth, Prolong Lash Cleanser makes removing make up a breeze. The cleaners thick and creamy nature, allows the foam to get right to the base of the lash line and our snag free make up cloth is guaranteed not to tug on eyelash extensions. Our make up remover cloths can also remove make up simply used with water, so even on those nights when you’re just too pooped to go through your cleansing ritual, you don’t have to compromise the health of your skin or eyes, just add water!
Wash your face
Prolong lash cleaner is pH balanced, and when it comes to facial cleanser pH is important. pH refers to how acidic or alkaline a substance is.
The usual pH balance for skin is around 5.5, this means the skin is slightly acidic. This helps to keep skins moisture in, and germs out. A pH balanced cleanser will be able to break down dirt and oil, without disturbing the acidic layer of your skin and causing dryness.
Replacing your regular facial cleanser with Prolong Lash Cleanser means that you have an all in one, lash and facial cleanser, making your cleansing routine that little bit faster and simpler.
Wash your hands
Now, more than ever, we know just how important it is to wash your hands.
Who else has dry and cracked skin on your hands from the never-ending washing and sanitising?
Remember when we spoke about pH a moment ago? The typical pH level of a bar of soap is 9-12, this is too high for keeping in moisture. Prolong Lash Cleanser is a great trade in for that old bar of soap. Even better, if you get your hands on a bottle of Prolong Lash Cleanser Concentrate, all you need is to keep the old foaming hand soap pump bottle you just finished, rinse it out, add 1/3 Prolong Lash Cleanser Concentrate, and 2/3 distilled water, and you have yourself a perfectly pH balanced hand soap. Your hands will thank you for it.
Wash your make up brushes
How many times have you looked at your make up brushes and cringed at how much old make up is caked into them? Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone, but we have a solution for you! Prolong Lash Cleanser cleans make up off brushes just as well as it cleans make up off your face and lashes. Simply wet your brush, fill your cupped hand with a few pumps of cleanser and then rub your brush vigorously into the foam on your palm, rinse well with clean running water, and repeat until the water runs clear, squeeze brush fibres gently in a towel and allow to air dry.
However you use it, Prolong Lash is versatile and does the job!
