Hah! That got your attention! I sincerely hope that I never post photographs of what I look like when I am alcoholically ‘lashed’ – that may put people right off! What I mean, is that I had eyelash extensions – what I would call quick fix eyelash extensions, ones that last for a week or so – you have them put on, you do your thang, you go back and it takes 5 mins to get them soaked off. Easy Peasy. This is a really fab solution for holidays, weddings, parties ya de ya,
Helen, from SmoothAs Chipping Norton asked me to review the eyelash extensions. I was a welcome candidate and a willing one as well. I seem to have lost my eyeballs from lack of sleep and my eyelids have developed droopy hoods, I’m blaming it on The Baby, but in the back of my mind, the slippery slope of my 40′s has started already. Anyway, I digress. Eyelashes. To be specific – Lash Express lashes which cost £35 at Helen’s treatment room on New Street. This includes the soak off. The lashes are mink and soft and flexible, so you don’t feel like you have spikes attached to you. There are a variety of lengths and they can be applied to look natural or a more ‘va voom’
Honestly, WHY do I do this to myself! No makeup, can’t be arsed to retouch coz I’d be here ALLLLL day. This is it folks. This is what I looked like when I rocked up for my treatment. My diet of 4-5 hrs sleep a night for 11 weeks is knocking 5 bells out of me!
The total bonus for this treatment is that you get to lie down for 30 mins. Felt like a refreshing lifetime!
This is the lovely (and god, she has AMAZING SKIN) Helen who did my treatment. (check out her special deal at bottom of blog post)
And this is what went on whilst I kept my eyes shut!
Christ, I’m booking in for botox or a course of CACI Facials FAST having seen these!
These are the shots of my lashes being applied. One by one. Its painstaking and is quite a skill.
And here we are once my lashes had been done.
And finally, with some makeup on in my perfect world, where I have a perfect baby and everything is just amazing and awesome and brilliant…….Life with a lovely instagram filter……
My verdict. I LOVED them. I was very sad when they had to come off. And now I keep thinking about having the semi permanent ones…..I didn’t have a party or wedding or holiday to go on, but they just made morning routines so much faster and I felt that I had eyes again! Lash Express are available all across the UK – check out their Facebook page for other therapists
