Blink and Go lashes

I had my Blink and Go lashes done at the Zen Lifestyle beauty networking event on the 4th of April. I need to be honest, I have always been unconvinced in trying anything more permanent than strip lashes. I’m a picker you see, constantly fidgeting with my eyes, rubbing them, picking off mascara. I also didn’t think I could pull off the whole essex lash look on a daily basis.

So what exactly are Blink and go lashes?
Here is a quick description from Zens website –
The great benefit of Blink & Go lashes is that they are quick – 20 minutes for a full set. The result is a stunning, full lash mascara’d effect. Blink & Go lashes last one to two weeks so they are great for holidays, the party season and special occasions. You can find their full details here – Blink and Go
My thoughts on the treatment: My Treatment therapist Ellie was fantastic (please let me have her name right, if not im sorry). A full consultation reassured me that I would have natural looking lashes, similar to mascara.

Before and after

The finished look was a strong but natural result (not a hint of Essex in sight). For me the best bit about the lashes was that I couldn’t feel them at all, they were super lightweight, even lighter than some mascaras. The lashes lasted me 5 days. They would have lasted much longer, maybe about 7-10 days but I’m sorry and ashamed to confess that the temptation was too much and I couldn’t help picking at them – slaps own wrists! In my defence I was very careful and loosened them with some oil beforehand. Please if you have them done make sure you go back to have them removed correctly.

I’m not sure i would have my lashes done again but I did really love the results. I just can’t be trusted not to pick.

What we say: Leanne and I both tried out this product along with my sister who often steals things from my room. We like it, it leaves hair feeling and looking good. Milkshake Whipping Cream Detangles hair in an instant and leaves a salon shiny finish. I am sure my hair also took less time to dry when using. It smells good enough to eat and according to my sister and Yvonne it doesn’t taste all that bad, not exactly good but not awful (eating is not recommended). It is the perfect quick treat for hair, providing great results for a night out. The only thing we would say is be carful not to apply too much or you will need to wash hair again.

You can buy the product Here it retails for £14.79 for a more than generous size.
