How to wash my face while wearing my DIY lash extensions?
While we do not recommend submerging your lashes regularly, it is okay on occasion. No more splashing your face with water ladies! To properly cleanse your lashes, we recommend using the WinkClique Lash Cleanser or any oil free and lather free cleanser to properly remove any oil, makeup, or debris from your WinkClique lashes. After carefully using your cleanser, gently dab away the access from your lashes with a wet microfiber cloth. Don’t worry, we have you covered with the most luxurious Microfiber Cloths! Once you have cleansed your lashes and face —- do not touch them — let them air dry and allow the Adhesive to become “tacky” again. Once dry, use your Lash Presser to press and seal your WinkClique lashes to your natural lashes and be on your way!

The steps to ensure your lashes last during your shower are similar to those while washing your face. Be gentle with your WinkClique lashes while in the shower and do not rub them.
