Online, independent shop announces new Vegan false eyelashes with plastic-free packaging

Natural Essentoils, an online store selling only natural, vegan and cruelty free beauty products, have announced a new range of strip eyelashes.

All products are also handmade in the UK.

In the past year, the company have produced makeup brush cleaners and scented sprays but they now have three kinds of faux eyelashes for you to choose from.

All of them are handmade from cotton, lightweight and medium length but they come in a variety of styles. They feel very soft and look natural.

They come attached to strips of gold card and can be easily reattached.

The Skye lashes are the shortest, most natural looking which are layered to give them a unique look. These would work great for both day and night looks.

The Secret lashes are longer and have more volume for a more glamorous look.

The Ellbee lashes add the most length and volume. Perfect for a night out.

Each individual set is priced at £5.50 but you can buy all three together (or a combination of three that you prefer) for £14. That’s a saving of £2.50.

Adam Harston, co-founder of Natural Essentoils said: “Many people still believe that natural costs more, and that did used to be the case. But now things are different. Our products are high quality, but if you look at other similar products, synthetic and natural, our pricing is very mid range.”

Instructions of how to apply the lashes can be found inside the packaging but also on the website. While the packaging is plastic-free it also doesn’t take up a lot of room. They come in a small metal pot to keep them protected and can be easily popped into your bag or purse.

The lashes are the second product to be shipped in plastic-free packaging, following the deep cleaning brush jar. Adam said: “Our older products that are still packed in PET plastic are in the process of being changed, and that should happen in a matter of weeks. Until that point we remind all of our customers that the bottles are so easily recycled.

We make everything ourselves, apart from our new range of eyelashes, NE lashes. Our supplier sends them through to us and we package them in eco friendly packaging.”

A downside is that these don’t come with lash glue – so you will need to buy this seperately.

Here at Eco Style, we’ve headed to the high street to pick out the best vegan and cruelty-free lash glue available right now.

Most of the false eyelashes in shops at the moment are sold with glue and therefore singular lash glue isn’t that common but there are some good choices available.

Check out the video below to see what we found.

Natural Essentoils recommend using DUO adhesive. Adam said: “There are some really good vegan eyelash adhesives around at the moment. While we were developing the NE lashes range we used DUO’s brush on striplash adhesive. The lasting power is excellent and its available in both clear and black. We really love it and its quickly become the glue of choice for our team.”

Rebecca Allan, a beautician, makeup artist and content creator also recommends DUO glue. She told us: “Out of the many glues I’ve tried it’s the most long-lasting, easy to apply and the most effective. It’s also cruelty-free, vegan and latex-free.”

  1. I might actually give these ago, false lashes are too heavy for me so I never wear them, lightweight sound ideal and ego friendly makes it all the more worth it!!
