Jeindeer Eyelash Curler review

Today I have a truth bomb for you all: I have never used an eyelash curler before (insert gasps and shocks of horror). Maybe I just never saw the point, or they kind of look a bit intimidating, I don't know. I don't really have a proper reason for why I haven't tried them before, but now I have, and today I’m going to talk about the curler I tried.

Jeindeer is a brand that, admittedly, I haven’t heard of before. However, I’m always more than happy to try out new brands, and I was recently contacted to give this Eyelash Curler a whirl, so that I have.

The box states that the design of the curler is targeted towards high performance and its innovative design easily creates a natural curl. The pad is designed to give lashes a sweeping curl rather than a crimped, angled look.

The curler is made of steel and is quite rounded, but still fits quite snuggly around the roots of the lashes. The pads are made of silicone rubber and a spare pad is included within the box.

Usage and Results:

To use, you need to open the curler and position it around your lashes, right at the roots. Next, you need to gently squeeze the curler together, not too tightly, then hold for a short while. Once ready, fully release the handles before moving it away from the eye.

It states to make sure that you are using the curler on clean, mascara-free lashes (we’ve all seen that video with the woman losing all of her eyelashes, surely?!). Also please do take care not to pinch your eyes during use (ouch!).

If you don’t achieve the desired curl on the first go, you can continue to use the curler in the same manner up towards the tip of the lashes.

At first I was a little confused as to how close you need to get with the curler (don't forget, eyelash curler novice here, stop snickering at the back!), so I had a couple of attempts that weren't wielding much in regards to results. However, finally working out what the heck I was doing, I held the curler nice and firmly around the very base of my lashes with the curler touching my eyelid and hurrah! There we go!

I held it for around 10 seconds to achieve the curl.  Just like the box states, there was no harsh crimp effect. Instead there is a nice, smooth curl that made me look twice. I like it!

Without mascara the curl lasts for a few hours, but as you could imagine, it lasts far longer with the use of mascara. 

Here are my lashes before using the curler:

And here they are with a coat of Benefit's Roller Lash Mascara (and with my trusty Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner on the waterline):

I've always been happy to have long eyelashes, but whilst they may have the length, they have a total lack of curl. They sort of just grow long and straight. So much so that they can poke the eyeballs in the inner corners sometimes. I did find that the eyelash curler gave me some form of relief with this, so that's an extra plus. 

Do you need to use an eyelash curler every day? Hmm, not really, but if you have the time to do so every day then it can add a whole extra element to your finished look for sure. If you don't have the time to use it every day, it is still a great addition to your kit for use on more special occasions or for whenever you do get a moment extra. 

As a mum, it can be hard to find time to fit this into my morning routine, but for when I get to go out somewhere? Yeah I'll definitely be using it!

Like I explained during the start of this post, the curler does come with a spare silicone pad. Jeindeer state that with daily use, the pad can be used for up to 3 months. If you were to use it daily, you’re looking at around 6 months of use. Not using it daily will therefore give you a bit more life, but please do remember to still clean it. This is used near your eyes. Don’t risk an infection!

Sadly, due to my lack of experience with eyelash curlers, I can’t compare it to others. I can say though that for my first experience with curlers I was pretty happy. 

You can purchase the Jeindeer Eyelash Curler from Amazon UK, Amazon US and Amazon Germany.
