Due to this cycle, refills are recommended about every 2-3 weeks to maintain a consistent/ full look.

NO most facial cleansers are to oily or creamy to be used around the eye when wearing lashes. (Oils will strip the glue bond and your lashes will fall out)
What do I have to do for upkeep?
Fills every 2-3 weeks to replace lost lashes is recommended. Purchasing a lash sealant or shampoo is also very helpful for the longevity of your extensions. Avoid oil based cleansers and moisturizers and keep the lashes dry for 48 hours after your appointment.
