If you find yourself wondering how lash adhesives are supposed to be stored, you have come to the right place! The three most important things to take into account when you are storing your lash glue are; light, temperature, and humidity. All three of those factors will cause your adhesive to be less effective. Luckily, those three things are pretty easy to control! Here are my top three tips to take care of your adhesive!
Write Down Purchase Date and Open Date
This seems like a simple tip, but it is important because lash adhesives have a shelf life. We recommend using unopened lash glues within 3-6 months. Once an adhesive has been opened it can last 4-6 weeks. (I personally get a new adhesive after 4 weeks).
Keep Out of Direct Sunlight
This tip is pretty straightforward. Remember what we said about light and temperature affecting your lash adhesive? Just make sure to keep your adhesive stored in a cool, dark room. Direct sunlight can cause the temperature to increase and your adhesive to go bad prematurely.
Suggested Temp (72°-78°F) and Low Humidity
We suggest storing your lash glue at a room temperature between 72°-78°. As far as humidity goes for storage, try to keep it below 60%. You can use our silica packets to help (more on that later).
