7 reasons why you get dark circles under the eyes
Is there anything worse than large, prominent dark circles and bags under the eyes? We can barely imagine anything more annoying, especially since it makes you look so much more tired! Read on to find out 7 reasons why you get dark circles and bags under the eyes. We also reveal our best solution to the problem!
1. Poor, too much, or too little sleep
Prioritizing good sleep has several benefits. It’s no coincidence that you call it beauty sleep! Researchers believe that a regular sleep of about 7-8 hours, among other things, prolongs life, gives a healthier brain, makes you more productive, gives a better immune system and improves the mood. In addition, you can experience that you get healthier and better skin. If — on the other hand — you suffer from lack of sleep, too much or too poor sleep, dark circles and bags under the eyes can easily occur. If you don’t get your beauty sleep, the skin can become paler and dark blood vessels under the eyes can be seen more clearly. Lack of sleep can also lead to fluid accumulating under the eyes, which can cause bags — and might also be a reason for dark circles, since bags can create shadows that then look like dark circles.
If you already easily get dark circles and bags under the eyes, they can become even clearer if you sleep poorly.
Therefore, always try to get enough sleep — to feel good overall, but also to avoid dark circles and bags under the eyes. However, it’s not just lack of sleep that affects these things. There can be several other causes for dark circles.
2. How you sleep might also make it worse
Did you know that the position you sleep in might affect the appearance of dark circles and bags under the eyes? If you sleep on your stomach or on your side you may be pressing your face into the pillow, which puts strain on the skin around the eyes. Try instead to sleep on your back since this can counteract early signs of aging. If the bags under your eyes are extremely visible you could also sleep with an extra pillow, which makes your head rest higher and prevents fluid from accumulating under the eyes.
3. You rub your eyes too much
We all have itchy and irritated eyes from time to time. It can be due to allergies, dry eyes, eczema or reaction to makeup. Because the skin around the eyes is much thinner and more sensitive than the rest of the body, it’s important not to give in and rub or scratch. Did you know that the skin under the eyes is only 0.5 mm thin? The skin on other parts of the body is about 2 mm thick. Therefore, if you scratch a lot around the eyes, it can increase swelling, lead to inflammation and ruptured blood vessels. This can make dark circles around the eyes more prominent.
If you have difficulty not rubbing your eyes, we recommend that you go to the nearest pharmacy and ask for a cream or eye drops that can offer some relief. You can also put cold slices of cucumber on your eyes to treat them with extra moisture. However, if you suffer from eczema, we recommend that you see a doctor to get the right treatment.
4. You don’t protect your eyes from the sun
Your dark circles under the eyes may also be due to pigmentation that may have been caused by sunlight and UV radiation. As we mentioned earlier, the skin here is much more sensitive and a tan around the eyes can lead to both the formation of crow’s feet and that dark circles are more clearly visible. To prevent you from developing dark circles due to pigmentation, we recommend that you invest in a pair of sunglasses that have 100% protection against UV radiation. It is also important that the sunglasses cover the entire eyes and preferably the skin underneath so that the radiation cannot penetrate.

5. Age might matter
The older you get, the thinner the skin under the eyes becomes. This is because you lose healthy fats and collagen needed to maintain skin elasticity. As a result, the blood vessels under the eyes become more prominent, which both worsens and causes dark circles under the eyes.
6. It may be due to your genes or bone structure
Unfortunately, some people are more likely than others to have dark circles and bags under their eyes. It may be because you have inherited it from your parents — that you have simply had bad luck in the gene pool! Your parents may have passed on thin, delicate and transparent skin under your eyes. All this makes the blood vessels under the eyes more visible, which creates an effect of dark circles and bags under the eyes. Sensitivity to certain diseases, such as hypothyroidism, might also affect.
In addition, one’s face shape and bone structure can make dark circles more prominent. The area under the eye (so-called tear trough) may naturally be deep, which makes the area appear darker.

Facial massage — what is it and how does it work?
Xlash Cosmetics lists the benefits of massaging your face and why you should include it in your daily beauty routine!
What is a facial massage?
Did you know that we can affect the skin in more ways than just using skin care products? Facial massage is a beauty trick that can help improve the skin’s appearance and well-being, both inside and out. By massaging your face five to ten minutes a day, or a few times a week, you can slow down the aging process and tone your facial muscles.
One tip is to use a Rose Quartz Facial Roller or Gua Sha which are gentle facial tools that improve blood circulation. Both give a soothing feeling with the help of their cool temperature which helps to reduce any swelling and inflammation.
Benefits of massaging your face
Improves blood circulation
With a healthy blood circulation, the skin absorbs oxygen and nutrients in the blood, which in turn promotes cell renewal. Regular facial massage can help improve the texture of the skin and give more radiance. Facial massage not only increases blood circulation, but is also said to start lymphatic drainage to clear waste and toxins to keep the skin healthy and clean.
Relieves muscle tension and tones your face
Do you have a tendency to tense your facial muscles when you feel stressed, concentrated or tired? Then add facial massage to your beauty routine! Muscle tension in the face can cause the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time. Facial massage helps the skin to relax and relieve any muscle tension.
Take your time and enjoy! Facial massage is just as good at calming emotional tensions as it is at relieving tense facial muscles. Therefore, take your time when massaging your face and relax properly — because you’re worth it!
How to do it
We’re inspired by skin care expert Abigail James who has shared her best facials for over 20 years. Watch Abigail’s YouTube video showing how a facelift massage can help tone the facial muscles and improve blood circulation.

Interview: How to keep the motivation for a healthy lifestyle
We have interviewed Linn Ehrenström who is a personal trainer, model, and loves Xlash. Check out her video for a quick and intense workout you can do at lunch or an afternoon break at home — completely without equipment.
You’re personal trainer, model, tennis player, and run your social media! How long have you been active for?
I have always loved photography and film. When I was 12, my sister asked me to “model” so she could try out her new camera. I think that’s when I realized how much fun it was being in front of a camera. 3-4 years ago I started posting more frequently on my social media, a lot of it was from the tennis court and tips on exercises that can help me become a better tennis player. There I noticed that my following increased and that many appreciated my tips.
I started playing tennis (with a foam ball!) when I was four years old and started competing a lot when I was ten and I loved it. When I turned 12, I started going to a sports school where I got to play tennis during school hours, after 9th grade I started at the tennis high school in Uppsala to really be able to give it my all. I have been to Dubai and Kuwait in international youth competitions, got a few Swedish Championship bronze medals and played in the elite series.
After graduating I wanted to compete more internationally but unfortunately my back injury stopped me. I tried rehab and competitions for a year or so but then I couldn’t do it anymore. Today, over three years later, I can play for 1-2 hours a week before the pain takes over.
How do you get your everyday life together?
I have been very organized ever since I was little, I think it’s mainly thanks to tennis and the responsibility I’ve had to take on myself. Packing bags, preparing snacks and being on time were all parts of my everyday life already when I was a child.
Do you feel pressure regarding your appearance as a model and influencer?
There are many good things about social media: you can be inspired by others, get tips and meet new friends. But I don’t really know if the positive outweighs the negative. Luckily, I haven’t experienced that much online hatred yet, which may be due to the fact that I don’t have a huge amount of followers.
But one thing I have subconsciously been affected by is the focus on bodies on social media. There is an ideal you’re supposed to live up to, and if you don’t meet the criteria, you are not accepted. That’s why I try to encourage well-being and personal development in working out. Exercise should be something that makes you happy — you should exercise for yourself and your own goals, not for what the world thinks your body should look like.
How do you maintain the motivation for a healthy lifestyle?
I 100% believe in finding something that you think is fun to do. Whether it’s taking your dog for a walk, playing padel with friends or focusing on a sport doesn’t matter. As long as you enjoy what you do, it’s easy to keep your motivation up! I also don’t really believe in setting demands that are too high.
What do you cook when you don’t have a lot of time? Something quick and easy!
My go-to meal when I’m in a hurry is definitely a smoothie. The only requirement I have is that it should contain the three most important energy sources: carbs, fats and protein. My favorite recipe is: Banana, frozen strawberries, oatmeal, an egg, any kind of nut butter, quark and a little water.
Your best beauty hacks?
Wash your face properly and use a good moisturizer. Xlash Eye Gel Patches are magical!
When did you discover Xlash and what’s your favorite product?
I found out about Xlash a few years ago and was very impressed by what the eyelash serum could do for your lashes, then I got to try out some products last summer and now I’m hooked. I use the waterproof mascara every day since I don’t need to wash it off before working out. I can finally sweat and rub my eyes when working out without ending up looking like a raccoon!
What do you look forward to in 2021?
2020 has been a rough year for everyone, and what I look forward to most in 2021 is a summer full of hugs and cozy barbecue evenings with family and friends. Apart from that, my goal is to get my companies to grow and get the chance to help my clients achieve their goals and dreams. It would also be great if my back could cut me some slack so I can pick tennis back up and start competing again!

Beauty boost your brunch—5 simple additions
If there’s one thing we love when the weather (and mood!) gets a little better, it’s brunch! Xlash Cosmetics lists what you can add to give yourself a real beauty boost on the inside that will show on the outside. Luster, strong nails and better beauty sleep? Yes thank you!
Blueberries really are super berries. They don’t just contain heaps of antioxidants but also vitamins C, B, and minerals that help the body’s functions. Vitamin C has quickly become a must-have in the bathroom cabinet due to its luster inducing and smoothing properties, so make sure you get it from the inside as well!
The super-ingredient collagen is best absorbed with vitamin C. Therefore, mixing 1-3 teaspoons of collagen into the juice is perfect. It can also mask any flavors. Our skin is made up of approximately 75% collagen which is broken down by aging and external stresses. Therefore, using it in skincare and supplements has become very popular.
P.S if you don’t want to take collagen powder, our Hair Growth Formula contains both collagen, biotin and lots of other vitamins and minerals for hair, skin and nails.
Don’t be skeptical of spinach! It’s a good and easy way to get your greens — just mix it into the smoothie. You basically can’t taste it along with banana, berries, and your other favorite ingredients. Spinach contains a lot of good vitamins and minerals, but the ones you usually talk about are Vitamin A, Vitamin K, and folic acid. Vitamin A strengthens the immune system, vitamin K strengthens the skeleton and folic acid is needed to produce protein.
The ultimate sandwich must be avocado, salmon, and egg. Not only incredibly tasty but also contains lots of healthy and necessary fats and proteins that take care of your skin, hair, and nails. Salmon contains omega-3 which is said to give luster and moisturize from the inside out, avocados contain vitamin E which is a real skin hero, and eggs contain antioxidants that contribute to young and healthy skin!
FOR THE YOGURT
Yogurt (both dairy and vegan!) contains lots of good bacteria for the stomach. Add seeds for a simple beauty boost! Pumpkin seeds are good for a lot but help, among other things, beauty sleep. It’s the tryptophan that’s converted into the sleep hormone melatonin.

Xlash Eyelash Serum
BEHIND THE SCENES: THIS IS HOW XLASH IS MADE
Are you also curious about how Xlash Eyelash Serum is made? We have interviewed our laboratory located in southern Sweden! What is it exactly that makes the lashes grow, how is the quality guaranteed and what does a lab actually look like?
WHAT DOES XLASH EYELASH SERUM CONTAIN THAT MAKES THE LASHES GROW?
Xlash has a triple-acting formula — it contains active, moisturizing and soothing ingredients. An example of an active ingredient is biotin peptide which is a combination of biotin and peptide that helps your natural eyelashes grow. A moisturizing ingredient is, for example, hyaluronic acid which can bind moisture a thousand times its own weight. We have also added soothing ingredients such as extracts of green tea and chamomile to make the formula as gentle as possible. The serum contains no artificial scents or dyes.
HOW MANY EMPLOYEES WORK WITH XLASH?
There are six people involved in different roles. It can be production, quality control and analysis lab.
HOW IS XLASH EYELASH SERUM MADE?
There’s a lot of planning of the physical premises because it’s not allowed to manufacture different products on the same day. Distribution of roles in production usually looks like this: one person prepares and weighs all the ingredients, someone else prepares the mixer where hygiene control is to be performed before starting, mixing starts and takes about four hours. After that the tests begin and they take about three hours. When the mixture is preliminary, it’s quarantined awaiting further checks. So it’s a pretty long process.
After a week, when the formula is approved, we start filling the container and have an individual check of the entire bottle to make sure that everything is in the best condition it can be. They are sent into the filling machine continuously. After filling we check weight and for any leakage, and then close. The containers are then plasticized and packaged in its final packaging. It’s then sent over to Xlash Cosmetics’ own warehouse!
WHAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT XLASH?
The quality controls and choice of ingredients. We perform many tests on incoming raw materials and ensure that they meet set regulatory requirements. We also do a lot of microbiological analyzes to establish purity.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE XLASH?
It takes around five days from raw material preparation, mixing, control analyzes and then bottling.
HOW IS QUALITY CHECKED?
We keep a close eye on the suppliers of all ingredients and ensure that they meet quality standards. Canopus must regularly carry out supplier evaluations to guarantee good quality and traceability. After the containers are filled, they wait in quarantine for up to two weeks for all analysis results before they are approved for sale.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LASH LIFT
Are you curious about how a lash lift treatment works? Xlash Cosmetics has interviewed lash expert Linn, who shares everything you need to know about the treatment.
Linn Stivert is trained in lash lift and works at Stylepoint, which is located in a clinic in Solna. She started working with lashes in 2014 and has since then also trained in a number of different beauty treatments, including as a dermatologist
WHAT IS A LASH LIFT?
Lash lift is a treatment where the lashes get a perm and a nice curl — perfect if you want to avoid eyelash extensions and mascara! The treatment opens the eyes and gives a more vibrant look, while creating the illusion of longer and fuller lashes.
HOW DOES A LASH LIFT TREATMENT WORK?
1. The eye area is cleaned to remove makeup and impurities
2. Spool size and curl are chosen based on the customer’s lash length and preferences
3. The lashes are attached to the spool with glue to hold them in place
4. The perm fluid is applied from the root to the middle of the lashes and left on for about 10-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the lashes
5. Then the perm fluid is carefully removed with a dry cotton swab
6. The neutralizing fluid is applied from the lash root to the middle of the lash and left on for ten minutes
7. Then the neutralizing fluid is carefully removed with a dry cotton swab
8. If the customer wants, the lashes can be dyed to get dark and defined lashes — also recommended for dark lashes to get a mascara effect, but also because the lashes are thinner at the end
9. The treatment ends with a caring keratin treatment to strengthen the lashes
A lash lift treatment usually takes between 45-75 minutes per customer.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO CHOOSE WHICH CURL YOU WANT FOR YOUR LASHES?
Of course! The customer usually gets to choose from three different curls for the spools: L-curl, U-curl and C-curl. L-curl gives a straight bend and is optimal for short lashes that need a dramatic effect. U-curl gives a very natural curl and is excellent for thick lashes. C-curl gives a strong curl and is perfect for long lashes.
WHAT CAUSES THE LASHES TO CURL?
The things that create the curl is how long the perm fluid is left on for, the size of the spool, and the curl on the spool.
WHAT SHOULD YOU KEEP IN MIND FOR YOUR TREATMENT?
• Preferably don’t wear any makeup
• Don’t wear contacts
WHAT SHOULD YOU KEEP IN MIND AFTER YOUR TREATMENT?
If you’re not careful with your lashes during the first 24 hours, the perm can drop and give a worse result. Therefore, it is very important to think about the steps above after a lash lift treatment because the fluid is still processed during the first day. Make sure to:
• Not rub your eyes
• Be careful around the eyes
• Avoid makeup, showering, steam and heat for the first 24 hours
• Not use strong makeup remover
• Avoid waterproof mascara
• Use oil-free products around the eyes
CAN YOU USE MASCARA AFTER A LASH LIFT?
Absolutely! Just remember to avoid makeup the first day after treatment so that the perm can settle properly. Once the first 24 hours have passed, using mascara is fine. Try to avoid using waterproof mascara so as not to impair the result or durability of the lash lift. The less you wear on the lashes, the longer they last.
WHAT RESULT CAN YOU EXPECT?
With a lash lift treatment, you can expect to get naturally curled lashes that make the eyes stand out and give a more vibrant look. With the help of lash lift, you can skip mascara completely and still feel good in the morning.
CAN XLASH HELP THE EYELASHES?
God, yes! Xlash Eyelash Serum helps especially if it’s used regularly before a lash lift treatment. With the help of Xlash, the quality of the lashes improves while they grow longer and fuller — which will give a better treatment result.
It’s also possible to use the eyelash serum after the treatment to boost the lashes with caring ingredients that can help prolong the result.
HOW LONG DOES A LASH LIFT TREATMENT LAST?
A treatment will usually last for six to eight weeks.
DOES IT HURT?
No, not at all! The treatment is completely painless and very relaxing.
WHO CAN DO A LASH LIFT TREATMENT?
Anyone can do a lash lift treatment. The result will vary depending on your own lashes and conditions. Short and scarce lashes will for example not get the same effect as long lashes would.
HOW OFTEN CAN YOU DO A LASH LIFT?
After about six to ten weeks, it’s okay to do a new lash lift. It’s important not to get them too close together, so as not to wear on the lashes.
Each person loses about three to five lashes a day. By waiting six to ten weeks before the next treatment, new and stronger lashes will have formed.By using Xlash Eyelash Serum regularly, the lashes will become stronger while growing longer, fuller and thicker. Xlash is the perfect product to prepare your lashes with before a lash lift treatment. Many customers experience that their lashes have become longer since they started using Xlash, which has given them an even better result when they get a new lash lift treatment.

6 SMART TIPS ON HOW TO GROW OUT YOUR EYEBROWS
This spring and summer, the styled Instagram brows are stepping aside to give place to the natural and bushy. They no longer need to be perfect or sharp. So, put the tweezers away and read on to learn 6 smart tips on how to grow out your eyebrows. Whether you have naturally thin or fuller eyebrows, you can get the most beautiful eyebrows of the season!
Did you know that eyebrows tend to grow faster in the summer? Experts believe that this is due to the heat. In the winter, they’re less active and growth slows down. Spring and summer are therefore an excellent time to put a little more energy into making your eyebrows grow more. Especially since it’s a period where we use less makeup and instead let our sun-kissed skin take center stage. Full eyebrows are a perfect complement to that look.
Before you learn everything you need to know about making your eyebrows grow faster, one detail in particular is the key to a pair of healthy eyebrows. Moisturizing — just like the skin, our eyebrows do well when being fed regularly with moisture.
1. STOP PLUCKING YOUR EYEBROWS AND PUT THE TWEEZERS AWAY
If you want your eyebrows to grow thicker and stronger, this is the first thing you need to do. You’ve most likely experienced only meaning to pluck off a few single hairs — but all of a sudden you’ve removed half the eyebrows. Therefore, if you want to let the eyebrows grow out, you must stop using the tweezers, right now. To achieve the best results, it’s important not to remove a single hair in at least two months. For the first few weeks, you will probably be bothered by hairs growing outside your eyebrow shape, but hang in there — we promise, it’s worth it! Use an eyebrow pencil to fill in the gaps and cover individual hairs with concealer.
2. GROW OUT YOUR EYEBROWS WITH THE HELP OF AN EGG MASK TWICE A WEEK
Using eggs for the eyebrows may seem a little strange, but we promise, this will do your eyebrows good! Eggs are something that most people keep at home in the refrigerator and are rich in both keratin and biotin. Two substances that together boost the growth of the eyebrows. Keratin is a protein that makes up the eyebrows and eyelashes. By boosting the eyebrows with extra keratin, you contribute to them becoming stronger and thicker.
Separate the egg yolk from the egg white and whisk it into a smooth batter using a fork. Dip a mascara brush into the mixture and use it to comb through the brows. Gently wash off the yolk with warm water after 20 minutes. Repeat the treatment twice a week to accelerate growth.
3. ACCELERATE GROWTH WITH ALOE VERA GEL
You’ve probably used aloe vera gel to soothe the skin after a sunburn. But you can also use this smart and natural ingredient for much more. Among other things, to accelerate the growth of your eyebrows! Aloe vera contains aloenin, a substance similar to the protein keratin, and it promotes increased growth. In addition, aloe vera helps strengthen the brow hairs and thus prevents them from falling out. But that’s not all: this super ingredient also reduces oily skin and opens up the hair follicles, which also contributes to increased growth. We like that aloe vera is quickly absorbed by the skin, without leaving a sticky feeling.
Rub aloe vera gel onto your eyebrows and let your skin absorb it. There’s no need to rinse it off.
4. GET YOUR EYEBROWS TO GROW WITH THE HELP OF CASTOR OIL
People have been using castor oil to accelerate hair growth for decades. And of course you can use it to get thicker eyebrows. Castor oil contains several beneficial substances that nourish the hair follicles and thus stimulate growth. Among other things, castor oil contains proteins, fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins.
Rub a couple of drops of castor oil onto your eyebrows and leave it on for 30 minutes. Then rinse it off with warm water.
5. STOP TRYING TO COPY THE INSTAGRAM BROWS — USE AS LITTLE MAKEUP AS POSSIBLE ON YOUR BROWS
This is almost as important as hiding your tweezers. If you’ve embraced the Instagram brow trend, you probably know that that result requires a lot of different products. Your eyebrows will love you if you go for something more natural. Just as the skin feels good from being completely free of makeup, the same goes for your eyebrows. Partly because they get the opportunity to rest and recover, but also because you don’t have to expose your eyebrows to all the stress required to remove makeup. The more products you use to style your eyebrows, the more aggressive the process of removing it all. And if you do this every day, it can result in you pulling out several hairs in the process.
6. GROW YOUR EYEBROWS OUT WITH THE HELP OF AN EYEBROW SERUM
This option is perfect for those who want thicker and bushier brows, but with as little effort as possible. An eyebrow serum is easy to use and helps the eyebrows to grow longer and fuller. See it as a great help along the way. The best part is that it only takes a couple of seconds to apply! A favorite of ours is Xbrow Eyebrow Serum, which helps the eyebrows to grow fuller and become more defined.
If you use Xbrow regularly for at least six weeks, your eyebrows will reach their full potential. Xbrow consists of biotin peptide, which helps the hairs to grow fuller and thicker. The formula also contains hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, vitamin E and niacin which all have a strengthening, caring and healing effect.
HOW TO USE XBROW EYEBROW SERUM
1. Start by removing all makeup and cleaning your face.
2. Apply Xbrow in a thin line with a brushstroke on the root of your eyebrow follicles.
3. Use Xbrow every night for at least six weeks to achieve optimal results. Then you can apply the eyebrow serum a couple of times a week to maintain your result.

Create the perfeCt eyeliner with Jackie
Applying eyeliner has never been easier thanks to Jackie’s 5 simple steps!
Jacqueline Aranguiz is a makeup artist with over ten years of experience. If you want to see more of Jackie’s creative makeup looks, we recommend that you take a look on her instagram, @jackie_makeup83.
Step 1: Use tape
Jackie’s first step in creating the perfect wing is to use tape — yes, you heard right! Using tape under the eyes is the secret to creating the defined eyeliner look. Place the tape underneath the outer corner of your eye and angle it as you wish. Make sure that the tape sits evenly on both eyes to get a uniform result.
Step 2: Make two dots
In the next step, you need to bring out your eyeliner and make a small dot on your upper lash line, where the eyeliner will be the thickest. Then make another dot where the eyeliner should end. The dots will guide you where to apply eyeliner.
Tip: Raise your chin
Then lift your chin and look down when applying eyeliner to prevent the applicator from coming into contact with the lashes. To create a defined wing, Jackie recommends using an eyeliner that has a pointed and thin felt applicator similar to Xlash Eyeliner.
Step 3: Work vertically
The fourth step is to take out your eyeliner! Remember to work in a vertical direction and meet the point when applying eyeliner.
Step 4: Connect the dots
The next step is to bring the dots together! Start by applying the eyeliner from the starting point (the dot on the upper lash line) and paint gently to the end point, where the wing should end. Repeat the step on the other eye.
Then remove the tape and voilà — now you have a sharp and perfect wing! If the result is uneven, you can always use a dry cotton swab or a little concealer to fix the wing.

Xlash Eyelash Serum
HOW TO APPLY XLASH EYELASH SERUM
Not sure how to apply Xlash Eyelash Serum? No problem, it only takes 30 seconds and Xlash Cosmetics shows you how to do it in a simple step-by-step guide. Check out the video below!
STEP 1: WASH YOUR FACE
The first step before applying Xlash Eyelash Serum is to remove your makeup using a makeup remover, followed by a gentle facial cleanser to remove any makeup residue and impurities.
If you wear contact lenses, Xlash Cosmetics recommends that you remove them to prevent the eyelash serum from coming into contact with them and causing irritation.
STEP 2: OPENING CAREFULLY
Carefully open the Xlash eyelash serum.
STEP 3: APPLYING ALONG THE LASH LINE
The next step is to apply a thin layer of Xlash eyelash serum at the bottom of the upper lash line, right next to the lash roots so that the thin eyelash serum applicator can get to every lash.
We recommend that the application of the eyelash serum takes place just before bedtime so that the serum on the eyelashes has time to be absorbed.
STEP 4: REPEAT EVERY EVENING
Repeat the above steps once a day for at least 28 days to achieve naturally long eyelashes. After about six weeks or when you have achieved the desired result, applying Xlash 2-3 times a week will be enough to maintain the length.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN XLASH AND XLASH PRO EYELASH SERUM
Xlash PRO Eyelash Serum has the same formula as the best-selling Xlash Eyelash Serum. The difference between the two products is the size: Xlash PRO is twice the size and contains 6 ml, while Xlash is in a smaller size and contains 3 ml.
A pack of Xlash lasts for about 2-3 months and is perfect if you’re considering starting to use eyelash serum. Xlash PRO is optimal for long-term use because it contains twice as much product as Xlash and lasts for about 5-6 months.
