Eyelash Extensions at Spruce Moose

The lovely folks at Spruce Moose in Harrogate invited me into their fab treatment rooms lasts week to try out their individual lashes treatment.

The gorgeous space they have at Westgate House, at the site of the Everyman Cinema, opposite Pizza Express, is really quite large, the treatment rooms are over two floors, with lots of space and a feeling of relaxed luxury.

Relaxing Treatment

I’ve never tried lash extensions before so was a little unsure what to expect but the lovely Katie set my ease reassuring me that it was a relaxing treatment, and she was totally right.

They simply attached individual false eyelashes to the base of my existing lashes with a dot of glue. The precision in the placing is key and Katie did a marvellous job with mine.

All I had to do was lay still for around 45 minutes with my eyes closed – pretty ideal when you’re a Mama if you ask me!

Amazing Results

Katie placed a strip-pad under my eye (I guess so she could see the lashes better) and set about gently applying the lashes.

Once finished I was amazed, she showed me the finished look in the mirror and it was such a transformation, I was really surprised what a difference it had made!

My eyes were lots more defined and it made the shape of them so much nicer too, plus it was really natural, and they didn’t look ‘false’ at all to me. Just longer and lusher than before.

Simple Aftercare

The aftercare treatment is really simple too, just don’t use oil based eye-make-up remover near them and be careful not to rub them, else they will come out.  They’re expected to last two weeks, but will start falling out, just as normal eyelashes would over that time.

They’d be perfect for a weekend away or a special occasion, although some people have them all the time, a little like getting their nails done. I’m really tempted as I know I’ll miss mine once they’re gone!

Looks Amazing and Saves Time

Plus they have the advantage of saving you time both morning and night, as there’s no need for mascara (though you can use it if you want – I haven’t) and therefore no need to take off the eye make-up at night either! Double bonus!

I like that they make me feel like I have some make-up on, without having any make-up on and instantly make me look more awake! A real bonus as a sleep deprived Mama!

Overall, I really loved the treatment it was relaxing to have done and the benefits were really impressive.

CReaTeLashes – A serum that gives you longer real eyelashes

Way back before the Summer I spoke to Harrogate Mama, Shana Harrison who is a local beauty therapist specialising in lashes and brows over at The Beauty Focus. She chatted to me about this amazing new product she has brought over from Europe called CReaTeLashes. Basically CReaTeLashes is a serum that you apply to the base of your eyelashes, where they meet the eye, top and bottom, and it enhances the natural growth of your eyelashes and also makes them a shade darker.

As you can imagine I was slightly dubious at first, as I wasn’t convinced a product like this was for me or how effective it would me. But let me tell you after six weeks use of the serum. I’m totally converted. The product is truly amazing, my eyelashes are way longer than they’ve ever been and they’re thicker than I could have ever imagined!

How it works

The product is so easy to use you just apply a thin line to the base of your eyelid, where your eye lashes meet your eye, like eyeliner, after you’ve taken your make up off and before you go to bed. And that’s it! As you close your eyes at bedtime the serum obviously transfers to your bottom lashes too. Meaning both top and bottom lashes benefit from the serum. The only thing I noticed was that on first uses there was a little more ‘sleep’ in my eyes when I woke up than usual but that was all.

The serum takes around four to six weeks to work to its full potential but I noticed a difference after three weeks, I deliberately didn’t tell anyone I was using the serum to see if I had any comments and my Mum was the first to notice at around three weeks in. She thought they looked fab and wanted to hear all about the product.

The Science

The active ingredient is isopropyl cloprostenate (prostaglandin) and it originates from research on glaucoma and was further developed for cosmetic use. This ingredient stimulates the hair roots, prolonging the growth phase and slows down hair loss. In just 4-6 weeks short, thin and brittle lashes become noticeably longer, fuller and stronger. You can also use the product on eyebrows too!

My Longer Eyelashes…

I recorded a short video of my eyelashes at the beginning, middle and end of the six weeks course – so you can see for yourself how well my eyelashes grew! I’m a total convert! I honestly think it’s a great product with amazing results.

It’s really simple to apply – here’s me showing you how!
