Can You Use Micellar Water With Eyelash Extensions?
I get asked this question a lot, can you use micellar water with eyelash extensions? Since I went back to wearing eyelash extensions you all have had a lot of questions (yay!) and I’ve been happy to answer them! Micellar water is probably the number one question surrounding them. I talk about my favorite cruelty-free micellar waters and makeup wipes to use with eyelash extensions in this post.
Best Oil-Free Micellar Waters
Yes, you can use an oil-free micellar water with eyelash extensions. Below are my top 3 cruelty-free micellar water picks:
- Ofra Perfecting Elixir (vegan, fragrance, and alcohol-free)
- Pacifica Coconut Micellar Water (vegan)
- Nyx Stripped Off Micellar Water
Polished Lash Spa (the salon I go to for my eyelash extension service) in Tampa also sells a cleaner, which I’ve purchased. It works very well! The lash salon you go to should sell a cleaner if you do not want to use micellar water. They often also sell special eye makeup wipes.
Best Oil-Free Makeup Wipes
I’ve also been asked, can you use makeup wipes with eyelash extensions? The truth is you can use them if they’re oil-free. They’re actually the ideal texture for removing makeup from your eyes with minimal damage to your lash extensions. Here are some oil-free makeup wipe recommendations.
- Bliss Makeup Melt Makeup Wipes (vegan, oil free, paraben free, pthalates free, sulfate free)
- Ulta Sensitive Skin Makeup Wipes (Paraben-free, oil-free, fragrance-free)
- Yes to Blueberries Makeup Wipes
If you are thinking about eyelash extensions, you definitely need to avoid oil-based cleansing products for your eyes so that the glue that bonds the extension to your natural lash doesn’t break down.
