After application the mascara does not need to be corrected all day – that makes the mascara more efficient than standard eyelash make-up products.

Therefore, the efficiency of one package is a pretty personal thing and it depends on preferences for everyday application.

Does the regular use of mascara weaken the condition of eyelashes?

What about the mascara durability during the hot weather?

High temperature and increased air humidity do not affect the durability of the mascara.

The Enhancing Mascara versus the Long-Wearing Mascara – what is the difference and which of them will thicken the eyelashes more?

The Long-Wearing Mascara is based on Tube technology, which makes the black mascara stay on the eyelashes for up to 24 hours and it is removed with the use of warm water with at least 39 degrees. The mascara does not cover the eyelashes like standard mascaras, but it puts them into a special shield, a “pipe” which prevents the make-up from smearing and flaking. The Enhancing Mascara contains biotin, which strengthens eyelashes and promotes their growth. A hyaluronic acid gives them shine and a healthy appearance.  Neither mascara has a thickening effect; they curl the lashes and lengthen them. The Enhancing Mascara gives them volume while the Long-Wearing Mascara provides shine. If long-wearing effects of a mascara are important to you, we recommend the Long-Wearing Mascara. But if you care about strengthening and nourishing, we recommend the Enhancing Mascara.

Why during the make-up removal there are fine, crushed particles of mascara visible on the cotton pad?

This is just the unique characteristic of the Tube technology. Unlike the traditional mascaras, after the fixation on the eyelashes, this mascara does not dissolve neither in water nor in the make-up removal preparations (even those based on oil components). During the make-up removal the warm water gets between the eyelash and the applied mascara layer causing the “tubes” to slip off from the eyelashes (the “tubes” may look like eyelashes). Therefore the Tube technology has 2 main advantages:
fast, simple removal and minimized risk of eye irritation.

How to apply “tube” mascara?

We apply the “tube” type mascara in the same way as the other mascaras, using a standard technique with a brush. The difference is only in case of make-up removal.

Can the tube technology mascara be removed with micellar liquid, milk or 2-phase liquid for make-up removal?

Yes, but only washing off with warm water with a minimum temperature of 39°C ensures the perfect make-up removal without irritation.

Why is the mascara resistant to make-up removers while it can be washed off using water?

Water or other liquids with temperatures under 39 degrees are not able to remove the mascara from the eyelashes, therefore, it cannot be washed off by rain, tears, swimming pool or sea water. What is more, increased air humidity will not produce any flaking or smearing of the mascara. Forget about the panda effect! Once dry, the mascara becomes insoluble in water, sebum or make-up removals. Therefore, it lasts for 24 hours. Hence, it can be used with no fear at the gym, during summer trips outside the city, long all-night parties or on a journey.

How to remove mascara?

Soak the eyelashes with warm water (at least 39°C) using moistened fingertips and pressing gently. You can also moisten a cotton pad with warm water and press it into the eyelashes, and then wipe off the mascara. The casings (pipes/tubes) will simply slip off the eyelashes gently and effortlessly. On the cotton pad you will be able to observe the tiny tubes which have just covered the eyelashes. Make-up can be also removed while taking a bath or shower.

Does regular use of the mascara weaken the condition of eyelashes?

The Tube technology ensures a superb, long-lasting 24h effect, but in a different way than typical waterproof mascaras that weaken the eyelashes after a prolonged period of application.

How should the mascara be completely removed?

Moisten your fingertips with warm water (at least 39 degrees) and gently press them into the eyelashes. You can also moisten a cotton wool pad with warm water, press it to the eyelashes and then wipe off the mascara. The shields (pipes/tubes) will gently and effortlessly slide off the eyelashes. Small tubes which covered the eyelashes a few seconds ago will be visible on the cotton wool pad. You can also remove the mascara while having a bath or a shower.

Why is the mascara resistant to liquids, and you can wash it off with water?

Water or liquids at the temperature below 39°c are not able to “unstick” the mascara from the eyelashes, so it can’t be washed away neither by rain, our tears, nor the water in the swimming pool or in the sea. Increased air humidity will not cause the mascara to fall off and smear as well. Forget about the “panda eyes” effect! After drying on the eyelashes, the mascara becomes insoluble in water, sebum and make-up removal preparations, therefore it is durable for 24 hours. That is why it can be used without any worries in the gym, on the summer trips out of the town, during long-lasting, all-night events and travel.

The L4L line for men includes three products: two shampoos (strengthening and anti-dandruff) and the active serum against hair loss.

What about using the serum on an oily scalp (is regular use connected with more frequent shampooing?) or on thin hair that is easily weighed down by cosmetics?

The level of which the hair is weighed down depends on its porosity. In most cases, if the product is applied in the proper way, the hair is not weighed down.

L4S or Clinical Lift – which product is more suitable for me? I am 55 years old.

The best recommendation is to choose cosmetics based on their function. If you are looking for a rich nourishing cream for everyday use that is designed to lift the oval of your face and complement the losses in skin structure – then the Clinical Lift line would be most suitable. However, if you are looking for a product with an instant lifting effect, you should go for the Lift for skin. The best solution is complete care – a selected day/night cream for mature skin and the L4S serum for enhancing the rejuvenation effect.

The main purpose of the L4S line is an anti-wrinkle effect. It may happen that a particular person’s skin requires greater moisture, and then we recommend the additional use of a small amount of the cream.

I have used the serum and I don’t see any effect. Why?

The classic mascaras contain the black pigment and vegetable waxes. These mascaras paint the eyelashes and after drying off they can crumble and smudge under the influence of tears, sweat or sebum, leaving the unaesthetic “panda eyes” effect around the eyes. The Tube type mascaras contain an innovative polymer that dries off and creates a sort of pipe/tube around each eyelash with a high degree of adherence to the eyelashes. Is resistant to tears, sweat, rubbing, swimming in the pool, increased air humidity. It does not impress on the upper eyelid, crumble or smudge. Even after a very active day, in the evening the eyelashes look as beautiful as in the morning.

There are no contraindications for the constant use of L4L products to maintain the effects.

A toxin from viper venom or snail slime – which is more effective?

Each substance is aimed at different problems. SYN-AKE (biomimetic tripeptide that was developed to imitate viper venom) is used for mimic wrinkles. Snail slime filtrate is meant to improve skin condition.

What is the difference between the Long-Wearing Mascara and the conditioner for eyelashes?

The eyelash conditioner is a product which has an active effect on eyelashes – it has a beneficial influence on their growth, amount and life cycle. The mascara’s formula focuses on the regeneration effect – it strengthens eyelashes and promotes their growth. What is more, it contains an innovative polymer, which covers the eyelashes from root to tip, lengthening them physically. However, the mascara is not a conditioner. The effects of these 2 products are slightly different. The conditioner acts more intensively on eyelashes – after completing therapy, your eyelashes will regenerate and will look longer and thicker. The mascara will also stimulate them, but in a more delicate and subtle way. It will enable you to have perfect make-up for 24 hours; however, it will not act on the eyelashes as deeply as the serum. If you want to obtain a spectacular long eyelashes effect, we recommend the conditioner. However, if you expect that the cosmetic will guarantee ideally separated, emphasised eyelashes (and will condition and strengthen them at the same time) as well as provide a durable make-up effect, then the mascara will meet your expectations.

The tube technology is an advance technology which involves the mascara’s adherence to the eyelashes and it completely differs from the one that is used in standard mascaras with formulas based on wax and soot.The mascara does not cover the eyelashes like standard mascaras, but it puts them into a special shield, a “tube” which prevents the make-up from smearing and flaking.

Dandruff – what is the anti-dandruff ingredient in the shampoo?

The anti-dandruff ingredient in the shampoo is ciclopirox olamine.

What is the concentration of the anti-dandruff ingredient?

Due to the fact that the L4L shampoo is a cosmetic, the concentration of the active substance is the secret of the formula. However, this ingredient is among the first ingredients on the INCI list (the list of all ingredients to be found on the back of the package) – which proves that the ingredient plays a significant role in the formula and reduces dandruff.

What is the effect of the product – anti-wrinkle or lifting?

The rejuvenating primer contains rejuvenating ingredients, however, their concentration is not as high as in L4S, and hence, they will not give as spectacular effects as the L4S products.

Won’t the skin become indolent a few hours after  application? Won’t the skin “drop” and the wrinkles deepen? What about the tingling feeling after the application?

Yes, the main ingredient in the serum is the substance with an active effect on the skin. A slight tingling can be felt a few seconds after the application, but it goes away after a few minutes (it is connected with the product’s action and the penetration of the ingredients into the skin).It is a normal reaction.
