How often should you replace your eyelash curler? Apparently replacing your eyelash curler is a necessary evil! When Lancome Le Curler was launched I thought it absurd they didn’t offer replacements and to this very day I think it is still absurd that my beloved Shu Curler doesn’t sell replacements either.
What the hell?
I mean, ok, so the Eyelash Curler pads can get worn down but the actual curler? It’s in pristine condition in most cases well after the pad is worn down and popping a new pad into place is easy enough yes? And hell, if you need to clean the curler that’s equally easy!
So why are companies recommend you purchase a new eyelash curler and not simply offering replacement pads? Do they just want your money? I mean it’s cheaper buying a new pad but an entire new curler means the brand is cashing in on you right?
Nope, it means that it’s time to start replacing your eyelash curler!
Eyelash Curler replacement pads typically last six months before wearing down so your next replacement pad should be within that time frame. Most curlers are sold with two replacement pads one of which is already in the curler when you buy it that means within a year you’ll need to be shop a new Eyelash Curler.
The thing is, within a year you’ll notice your curler just isn’t curling lashes the way it used too! The handle isn’t as stiff as it once was which results in lashes looking kinda wimpy after using it.
So yes, sometimes you just need to replace the entire curler! It might be a year from now or if you’re lucky you might get two years from it but in the long run you’ll likely be replacing that curler soon or later.
So, even though you feel like brands are ripping you off when they aren’t selling replacements they are actually doing you a favor as no one wants wimpy lashes. So if your curler just isn’t delivering the results lately maybe it’s time to toss it and purchase a new one.
