OOH LA LASH UNIMART REVIEW & HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR EYELASH EXTENSIONS



DEAR DREAMERS
Moms need pampering sessions too, right? As I mentioned in my Hey Sugar reviewNailaholics, Ooh La Lash and Hey Sugar recently opened at Unimart, Greenhills. All three beauty salons were able to give me a professional, clean and relaxing pampering experience.

Eyelash extensions are a Godsend to those who have short and thin eyelashes like me. It’s not my first time getting eyelash extensions, I have done so twice in the past. However, my experience at Ooh La Lash takes the cake.

EXPERIENCE
At first, I assumed that I would be getting the usual eyelash extension service but surprisingly, a massage and collagen eye mask was part of the pampering.

As for the eyelash extension itself, I was warned that it would sting during application but fortunately, it did not. It’s best to wait for the glue to dry because when I opened my eyes a little too early, it stung a bit.

Of course, getting the synthetic eyelashes onto your eyelashes is not the hardest part, it’s definitely the maintenance. I can’t resist rubbing my eyes but I have to resist.

WHAT PREPARATIONS DO I NEED TO DO BEFOREHAND?
According to the lash experts at Ooh La Lash, you should:
1. Make sure to cleanse your eyes and remove any eye makeup or product applied as it may interfere with the adhesives and may cause reaction.

2. Make sure you don’t have the following conditions: Conjunctivitis, Cataracts, Glaucoma, Styes, Alopecia, Blepharitis or if your are undergoing chemotherapy.

3. You cannot have eyelash extensions if you have had an eye operation/eye surgery within the last 6 months.

4. If you have scarring to the eye area, eyelash extension service should be performed 6 months after the scarred area has been healed.

5. Contact lenses cannot be worn before and directly after the eyelash extension service.
6. If you wear glasses, don’t forget to bring these with you so the lash technician can make sure there is room for your lashes to grow.

7. Lastly, don’t forget to inform the lash technician if you suffer with claustrophobia or have any neck problems. They are well-trained and capable of answering any concern you may have.
You’d be surprised to know that there are a lot of options to choose from when it comes to lash extensions. At Ooh La Lash, you have the freedom to choose your curl, length and thickness. Go for Light and Natural (30-50 lashes) for natural-looking lashes that would go unnoticed, Classic (51-85 lashes) that’s has the perfect length and curl to add oomph to your everyday look, Diva (86-130 lashes) for voluminous lashes with ultimate curl and length that scream va va voom! and Vixen (Unlimited lashes) for long and beaut-full lashes to die for.

DO LASH EXTENSIONS HURT?
Generally, it is not a painful process but it may be uncomfortable to some since they would have to close their eyes for almost an hour –But hey! As they say, “tiis ganda”. However, once you see the results – any feeling of discomfort goes away. It would be best to consult the lash experts at Ooh La Lash to asses which kind of extensions are best for your lashes. Some might have thin lashes that may be too weak to carry a heavier extension.

If you still have any hesitations by now, it would be best to know that all products and materials used by Ooh La Lash are FDA-approved and are safe and globally-accepted and all lash technicians are certified by TESDA.
