Prolong Lash Cleanser, the ratio and the dealio.
I came across Prolong Lash Cleanser in my intensive search to find The One. One that didn’t sting the eye, one that was profitable for resell, a good quantity size of product and something that enhanced my retention. Simple needs that were far exceeded when I came across Prolong. This cleanser is designed for lash extensions and made for ultimate retention. It’s naturally pH balanced, so no burn, ever! It’s free of all oils and glycerin. Made with top quality products and even smells heavenly, like roses! It’s 100ml of product compared to a lot of 50ml options I had seen available to me. They’re an Australian company though, so shipping was not cheap!
Fast forward, I’m randomly scrolling DEEP into my email inbox searching for something one day, when I see an unread message from Kerry, the owner of Prolong Lash. A message sent several months before I ever came across and purchased the product, but never saw it. She was inquiring about my interest in becoming an American reseller for the cleanser. WHAT?! Hell yes!! I replied and not soon after was on a Skype call with her. I raved about the solution and told her that we definitely need it in our industry here and that I would be so honored to make it accessible to my customers. I shared with her that when I first got my bottle, I felt like their recommended ratio of solution to distilled water was more than was needed and unnecessary to achieve a really fantastic foam. I let her know that when I received my first cleanser, I played with it to see what kind of results I got. I first filled a 50ml foam pump bottle with just a little cleanser, added water, left space to prevent overflow from the lid going on, shook and dispensed. Wasn’t enough, too runny. Next time added more cleanser, tried it, loved it! So, I went with that! Which ended up being 2 parts solution to 6 parts distilled water, the remaining 2 parts was room for the top to screw on. By “parts” I mean I visually split the bottle in half and considered the bottom half 5 parts and the top half would be the other 5 parts, to make 10 parts, or 100% of the bottle. You can absolutely add more cleanser if you’d like a thicker foam, but I just didn’t feel it was necessary. I loved the result I saw and how well it cleansed with just about that much. Also I was selling these individual bottles as aftercare, so ‘just enough’ was good for me! I also believe you don’t want the foam too thick in the bottle you’re using to wash your clients lashes with, because you don’t want it to be too difficult to rinse out.
So, if you’re looking for an amazing product that provides even better results, don’t waste your time, I’ve found it for you! Join some of the best in the lash game who are totally hooked and give your clients the simplified luxury of what this solution provides!
