How to Remove Better Than Falsies

 

Hi, there! If you arrived at this blog, you might be wondering how to remove your Better Than Falsies mascara! Like any task that you do everyday, we recommend that you do so *mindfully*.

 



 

What is mindfulness? Well, Thich Nhat Hanh says, “Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment.” So what does that mean? It means doing everyday actions and chores thoughtfully - not in “auto-pilot”. Mindfulness isn’t just for the monks in Tibet, babe. We’ll show you how.  


First and foremost, let us say that Better Than Falsies uses some of nature’s strongest waxes to ensure that your lash length and color stays in place all day long. We use Carnauba, which is literally known as the “Queen of Wax”. You need to be sure that you remove the mascara gently and mindfully, to ensure that you keep your lashes strong and healthy. 


But, this doesn’t just go for Better Than Falsies. Any mascara that you use should be removed this way. Ok, let’s get into it:


How to Remove Mascara Mindfully 🙏

1. Take a Deep Breath!


Yepp, mindfulness always starts with arriving in the present moment. And, the easiest way to do this is through your breath! Take 5 big inhales and exhales, really feeling the air entering and exiting your lungs.

 

 

2. Reflect On Your Day


Take a few seconds to reflect on your day. What did you do that you were proud of? Did you make time for fun? What is something that you are grateful for?

 

3. Take A Look At Your Face


Take a look at your face. Notice your supple skin. Look at your eyes, your hair, and yes, your long eyelashes 😉 Give yourself a compliment, if you can. Self love is easier some days than others. If you can’t find a compliment to give yourself, simply say “You did your best today and I’m proud of you.” 

 

 

4. Choose your Make-Up Remover


We recommend something oil-based for Better Than Falsies. Anything from micellar water with oil to any of nature’s precious oils (we love coconut)! 


If using oil: Warm the oil up between your fingertips. Smell the oil and notice how it feels on your hands. Remember, we want to be aware of all the sensations!

 

5. Lightly Rub in Small Circular Movements


Lightly rub the oil-based remover onto your lashes, gently loosening the product. Remember, slow and steady wins the race. You should start to see the product coming off. 

 

6. Give Yourself Some Love!


Follow up with a gentle cleanser of choice! Lightly go over your lashes until all the product has been removed. 


Now, this is where it gets fun. Massage the rest of the cleanser into your skin. Find any areas that are giving you tension in your face and give them some extra love. Feel the cleanser on your skin. If it’s a sudsy wash, notice the bubbles and how they feel :) Use warm water to wash the cleanser away! Feel the decadence of the warm water on your face!

 

 

7. Continue with the rest of your nightly beauty routine!


Now, your Better Than Falsies mascara has been removed and your face has been cleansed. You are free to continue with the rest of your nightly self-care ritual. Try to take the same mindful approach to all the steps in your routine! Feel the products, oils and creams on your skin. Massage them into your face and neck and see where your body is asking for a little bit more love. 


Indulge and enjoy!
