Masks made it easy to forego certain beauty treatments which once felt essential. With the bottom half or our faces covered, the part of us that all attention was drawn to… was our eyes. According to Kimber Jaynes, lash-obsessed Founder of Borboleta, “lash care is the most overlooked piece of our beauty regimens.” Post pandemic, it seems that’s about to change. Learn how easy it is to make lash care a part of your routine and get the fuller, longer lashes you’ve always dreamed of.
Q&A With Kimber Jaynes, Founder Of Borboleta
Q:I had extensions prior to quarantine and haven’t been to an expert since. What should I be doing at-home to care for them?
“No matter what you have on your lashes; extensions, lift, natural lashes etc. the base health of the natural lash is key. I recommend using a serum nightly to keep lashes healthy and looking long and thick. Our Borboleta Lash Serum is packed with lash loving ingredients like peptides, Swiss apple stem cells, fatty acid rich pumpkin seed oil, Keratin and Biotin. You can also use a daily Lash Bath Cleanser to keep lashes/lids clean and nourished.”
Q: I’m new to lash care but want to incorporate it into my routine. Where do I start?
“I recommend investing in makeup remover (to dissolve makeup and condition skin and lashes), a Lash Bath Gel, Lash Serum, a Cleansing Brush (to loosen makeup from lash line and lashes without damaging them), and a Calming Eye Mask (for depuffing under the eyes). We put them all together in our Get Obsessed Kit. Once you start your lash care routine you will be wondering how you went without it. Not only will your lashes be looking better than ever, the skin around your eye area will look vibrant and nourished.”
Q: Are lash growth serums safe to apply at-home and how long before you see results?
“I have been using serum consistently for over a year and get stopped all the time by people asking who does my lash extensions, even though I’m not wearing them! The key is to apply it every single day. If you happen to miss a day that’s okay just pick up the next day and try to be as consistent as possible. You’ll typically start to see results about 4 weeks and by 8 weeks, you’ll be obsessed. We offer a serum that is ophthalmologist approved and clinically tested to be safe and effective.”
Q: Over the past year, I’ve embraced my natural lashes but I miss my falsies and extensions. Will having them applied again compromise the health of my lashes?
“That’s a great question and I get asked it probably the most. As long as you start off with healthy lashes and use a trained and experienced lash artist you can apply anything to your natural lashes. Make sure you have vetted your artists work, read their reviews, and know they were trained by a credible company. After getting the service, it’s crucial to keep up with your lash care, especially serum everyday!”
