Sensitive Eyelash Extension Adhesives

Eyelash extensions are a beauty craze impossible to ignore. If you’re a first-time lash client, read on for some key pointers so your results are maximized. Eyelash extensions have more options than lash length, thickness, design, and more. One very important component to achieve flawless results is the glue, also referred to (by professionals) as, adhesive. Experts at Quality Beauty Store know how important glues are for excellent results. This section will help you to select the right sensitive eyelash glue.

Here’s a tip! Consider what kind of glue the lash artist is using, especially, if you have sensitive skin or sensitivity to adhesives.

Is there sensitive glue for eyelash extensions?

It is not uncommon to ask for a patch test at any point in your lash extension journey. For best results, make sure you get a patch test at least 24 hours before your appointment. Patch tests are the best and most efficient way to determine if eyelash glue is for you. Lash artists will put a small dot of the lash glue on your wrist or behind your ear. The skin in those areas is the most similar to your eyelids, which lack mucus membranes, like your palms or soles of your feet. Sensitive eyelash glue has been designed to allow clients with allergic reaction to undergo eyelash treatments as it contains minimum amount of chemical substances. Most hypoallergenic glues from our store have little or no fumes as well.

How do you know if you’re allergic to eyelash glue?

Over the course of 24 hours, you will notice if your skin reacts to the exposed area. Reactions can look like small red bumps, itchy or inflamed skin. If your skin does react, you will know within the 24 hour time period of exposure. Reactions are similar to how your skin would react to an allergy. Even if it’s the tiniest reaction, imagine the reaction on your eyelid – not well. If your skin does not react, the lash artist can use the regular eyelash extension glue for your service.

What is the Difference? How Long Does Sensitive Lash Glue Last?

These are some of the most common questions we receive from clients concerned about reacting to the products used in their service. More often than not, the regular glue patch test is negative for side effects. For the ladies who DO react to regular eyelash extensions glue, don’t fret! There are several eyelash glues for sensitive eyes options for lash artists to use. Check out the selection at Quality Beauty Store as an example of glue options.The chart shows a comparison between regular lash glue and lash sensitive glue.

Why is this information important to you as a client?

Each of these categories affects the overall application time and results after your appointment. It’s important to consider your overall experience with eyelash extensions during and after your appointment.Drying time affects the time to apply extensions to natural eyelashes. Using eyelash glue for sensitive eyes can extend your appointment time. Each lash application can potentially double the time of your treatment. For example, Quality Beauty Store offers a drying time of 6 seconds and a retention time of 2-3 weeks with their sensitive eyelash glue.

Appointments vary by service, but here are approximate times for each service for lashes.

Regular GlueSensitive Glue
Full Sets1 to 2 hours2 to 3 hours
Lash Fills1 to 1.5 hours1.5 to 2 hours
Lash Removal15 to 30 minutes15 to 30 minutes

Bonding time is most important after your appointment. It’s the time immediately following your lash appointment. Most glues only require 24 hours post application for the bond to set. Meaning, your eyelashes cannot be exposed to: showers, hot yoga, steam, sweat or extreme changes in weather or humidity or moisture.

Retention time, with proper care, eyelash extensions can last up to 4-6 weeks with regular glue. Sensitive eyelash extension glue offers a retention time of 1-3 weeks, increasing your lash fill visits each month from (maybe) 1-2 fills versus 1-3 fills per month.

Fumes and odour of regular eyelash glue can cause watery, itchy, or red eyes. Sensitive lash glues tend to eliminate fumes, odours, and harsh ingredients.
