Can You Reuse False Lashes?

The simple answer is - yes! You’ll be pleased to know that false lashes can be used over and over again. But the length of your lashes' lifespan depends on a couple of factors, such as the brand you choose and how well you care for them. 

Faux mink lashes are the best type of false lashes on the market as they’re cruelty-free, affordable, and long-lasting. In fact, all of our silky faux mink lashes can be reused safely up to 15 times (with the right care of course). 

To get the most out of your much loved falsies, take note of our do’s and don'ts below! 

How To Make Your False Lashes Last Longer 

Do...

1. Clean your false lashes regularly 

Cleaning your false lashes after every wear will keep them clean from bacteria, general dirt build up and will help maintain their general condition. Is there really anything worse than dirty falsies? (The answer is no!)

After cleaning your lashes, we also recommend brushing them with a spoolie brush to remove any additional residue and help to keep your lashes separated and fluffy!

2. Remove your lashes gently 

When removing your lashes, pull them off ever so carefully by the lash band, starting from the outer eye and working inwards. We recommend using tweezers or a quality lash applicator to assist you. 


Avoid pulling on the individual lashes as this may ruin the shape of the falsies, making them damaged and unusable. 

3. Store your lashes safely after every use 

When your lashes are not in use, safely store them in their original packaging and ensure they’re kept in their original position to help maintain natural shape. 

We also recommend taking your eyelash case in your bag when going out in case you need or want to remove lashes while you’re out (e.g. on a night out or at a sleepover). Chucking your lashes into your bag with no protection will most likely result in them getting damaged or lost.

Don’t…

1. Use mascara on top of your lashes

Although it may be tempting, avoid coating your falsies in mascara. Heavy mascara build-up will shorten the lifespan of your lashes. Even if you clean them after each use, the more intense clean up process will add additional wear to the lash hairs. 

Instead, try coating your natural lashes with a flick of mascara before application or opt for bold lashes

2. Use heat to dry your lashes 

After cleaning your lashes, always let them air dry. We highly recommend that you do not blow-dry your lashes as this can melt them, altering their shape. 

3. Soak your lashes

It's really important not to soak your false lashes. When washing your face, we recommend washing the top and bottom portions separately. This way you can avoid submerging your lashes in water.
