Buying Wholesale Towels? 6 Tips To Pick The Best Ones For Your Skin

Buying Wholesale Towels? 6 Tips To Pick The Best Ones For Your Skin

Have you ever been to a store and felt overwhelmed by the selection of different types of towels? If so, then you're not alone. It's pretty understandable to feel lost and confused when presented with so many options. After all, not all bath towels are made equal.

When buying wholesale towels, criteria vary from one person to another. For instance, some people want towels that are plush, while others opt for thin ones. Some prefer towels that have a higher thread count, while others are fine with a much lower count. Whatever your considerations are, we all want the same. We want to make sure that the towels we are about to buy are not only of good quality but also good for our skin.

Here are some tips to help you filter your choices, so you can pick the best towel for your skin.

  1. Determine Your Skin Type

The first tip is to determine your skin type. Do you have dry, oily, or normal skin? 

This is an important factor to consider when buying wholesale towels because drying your skin will be their primary purpose. The best towel is what works best for your skin's needs. 

For example, if you have dry skin, cotton towels are the best option for you. Cotton absorbs moisture really well and can hold it in without feeling damp on your body. However, if you have oily skin, the material needs to be more breathable. That way, heat and sweat do not cause irritation when you place the towel against your skin.

Additionally, if you have allergies, it's best to stick with towels made from organic materials such as bamboo, hemp, and the likes, instead of synthetic ones since they tend to be softer against sensitive skin.

Knowing your skin type can easily narrow down your choices and help you pick the best towel that caters to your skin’s needs. You can check out bath linen sites such as bursali.co.uk to know more about your options. 

  1. Check The Material

When selecting towels, it's important to check the material they’re made of too. For instance, cotton is a popular choice because of its absorption properties. It is known to absorb water well and can dry your skin quickly. It’s an ideal choice for everyday use.

Towels can be made from synthetic fibres too. Nylon, rayon, and polyester are usually blended with cotton, making them fluffier and softer. While these towels are considered long-lasting, they do not offer a high level of absorption, as compared to pure cotton towels. 

  1. Consider The Towel's Thickness 

Thickness is another factor to consider when buying wholesale towels. If you want an ultra-plush towel that feels good against your skin, choose one with a high thread count. The higher the number, the plusher it will feel, and chances are they will also be soft.

Towel thickness varies depending on the material used, with some being substantially thicker than others. For example, microfiber towels are thin, which makes them great for drying off your skin quickly. However, they can feel scratchy or rough against your skin.

  1. Look For A Soft Texture

When choosing towels, it is important to feel comfortable in their texture. For people who have sensitive skin, a towel with a soft texture is ideal. That is because the softer the towel, the less abrasive it is on your skin.

It is important to consider the aftercare of towels too. For instance, organic cotton towels tend to get softer the more you wash them, while microfiber towels won't be as soft until after a few washes. To cater to the needs of sensitive skin, it is important to know which type of towel can remain soft and easy on the skin, even after multiple washes.  

  1. Look For A Durable Towel

One of the considerations that should be on your checklist is durability. You wouldn’t want to buy towels, only to replace them months later, because they shed or tear easily. Opting for less durable towels can not only cost you money, but it can also cost you time since you’ll be needing to do another shopping trip. 

Furthermore, having a towel that is prone to fraying or shedding, can’t be a good thing, especially when you have sensitive skin. Fabric remnants can get stuck on your skin after drying off and can be harsh or irritate your skin. 

When you invest in premium quality towels, you have higher chances of saving more- not just another trip to the store, but a trip to a dermatologist too.  

  1. Read Product Reviews

When buying wholesale towels, it's always a good idea to read customer reviews before making any purchase. Not only can it give you more information on the towel you’re interested in, but buyers who have actually used the towels themselves can provide you valuable insights about the product quality too.

Knowing other customers’ feedback on the towels you’re eying for can help you further evaluate the product before finally deciding to make the purchase. 

Conclusion

Towels are an essential part of any home. It is almost impossible to spend a day without using one- either to wipe our hands or dry off our face and bodies after a bath. Since it serves a necessary purpose in our lives, it is important that we pick them carefully. Keep in mind that you’re not only buying for style, but more importantly, for function too.

When buying wholesale towels, give it much thought as to which type of towel would best suit you and your skin’s needs.

Femme luxe review

Disclaimer: I have very kindly been gifted all these items from this post but all the reviews are my own and are completely honest :)

The first item that I picked out on the website was this gorgeous long-sleeved red dress I really like how the red dress is ruched at the front as I personally really like this on my figure. The dress has long sleeves which makes it perfect for going out as it’s getting colder, I paired it with some white trainers for a more casual going out look however you could also style it with some heels and a clutch for a more dressed up look. I am planning on wearing this dress with some devil horns for Halloween. The only issue with the dress is that it’s slightly sheer at the back but this wasn’t a problem as I can wear some nude shorts underneath.


The second item I selected was this blue black and white checked Jacket, I really like how the blue jacket is oversized and looks very trendy and is definitely something I will wear out paired with leggings or to dress up a bit more with some black jeans, the jacket is quite thin however I like this as it’s a great option for when you don’t want to wear a coat but want something to cover up , it also looks really nice over a hoodie when it’s cold.

The last item I received was this mesh sleeved corset top, I love this top because it goes with anything and completes every outfit and the sleeves make your outfit look so much more classy, I wore it out to a meal with some leggings the only problem with the top was that the front is quite low so you can see the top of your bra if your wearing one but that wasn’t too much of a problem as you can just pull it up more.

Eyelash glue for semi-permanent eyelash extensions

Eyelash extension glue.

The secret to placing eyelash extensions is using minimal amount of glue. Any excess glue won't dry and will need to be held in place for 20-30 seconds. If you use the correct amount of the glue it will dry in 2-3 seconds. When using too much glue the lashes will still be tacky and stick to the neighbouring eyelash when you release the isolation. I believe this is one number one mistake when eyelash technicians first start out. If excessive glue is used it can cause the extensions to come out in clumps causing damage natural eyelashes in the process.

Chemical

The glue I use contains cyanoacrylate. Cyanoacrylate is the same ingredient used in the hospital glue when someone has a accident to stick the wound closed. The chemical cyanoacrylate is very interesting as it's a extremely fast setting glue and cures with moisture. Oxygen doesn't have an effect on it. Which is why it should be stored in a dark/ dry place. The glue becomes unusable after around 3 months due to exposure of moisture every time you open the lid and should no longer be used. I personally write the date on the bottom of any product I use in my beauty salon. Every beautician should have a printed folder with all the MSDA sheets for each product she/he uses. If you would like a copy of any of these for more information on what is in each of the products I use please do ask.

There is no mention of formaldehyde in lashbase extreme glue, which I use and the glue is latex free, so fine to use if you have a latex allergy.  The chemical for the glue is ethyl-2 cyanoacrylate. If someone is offering eyelash extensions for an extremely cheap price I would question where they are purchasing their glue from. A good eyelash technician will never place the glue on the eyelid and leave a 2mm gap when placing eyelash extensions, so the only contact with the glue is at the test patch appointment and the small amount of exposure from fumes during application. You should never feel any pain with having eyelash extension applied.

Most beauty products have this logo on them, which means it's not recommended to be used after 12 months from opening the product.

Clients should avoid putting excess water anywhere near their eyelash extensions for 12- 24 hours after application. However by gently misting the eyelash extensions after application this can actually speed up the curing process and seal the lashes, reducing any irritation to the eyes after opening them. The fumes from the glue can be quite strong. However,I never have this problem with the lashbase glue I use . I also leave my clients with their eyes closed for 3-5 minutes after finishing the eyelash extensions. Working with the window open to reduce the fumes. The eyelash technician should always work wearing a mask ( FFP3 mask) as you can becomes allergic over time. Also working with a fan behind you to encourage fumes away from your airways is a good idea. Humidifier helps provide relief to eyelash technicians who suffer from airborne allergies.

Should I be using a nano mister for eyelash extensions application?

Yes, nano-misters are a great tool for any eyelash technician. I strongly recommend buying one. If you live in a country with high humidly I would strongly recommend using a dehumidifier during eyelash application as the presence of moisture causes the glue to set before you are ready for it and reduces your working time.

When to use Y lashes during eyelash extensions application

UPDATE: Ideal way nowadays is to create volume fan and never use pre-made.

 

When to use Y lashes for eyelash extensions.

I personally only use Y lash extensions when repairing the damage from previously poorly done eyelash extensions applications. Sadly there are a few eyelash technicians in Norwich at the moment who aren't isolating the individual eyelashes when applying extensions and just applying the extensions in the express lashes technique. This is very damaging to your natural lashes. However, they can also be used in a normal application to healthy lashes to create amazing volume.

This lady recently came to me after having a few infills with her previous eyelash technician who did her full set of semi-permanent eyelash extensions. She found the set she had on very itchy and uncomfortable because of the way they were bonded. The eyelash technician didn't even try to isolate the lashes when she applied them. By simply placing extensions on top of the existing extensions you can get a fuller look. However, this is extremely damaging to your natural lashes in the long run. The eyelash technician will often advise you to have a break from your lashes with this way of applying them. If the eyelash extensions are placed correctly you won't need a break from the extensions as there is hardly any weight on each of your natural lashes. I place my eyelash extensions by isolating one lash at a time leaving them 2mm from the eyelid to avoid any irritation. I believe less is more when it comes to glue and always dab the excess glue off on the eyepad, which is protecting the bottom lashes and preventing them from sticking to the upper lashes during application. When you lose one natural eyelash they should only be one extension attached. They should never fall out in clumps!

The Y lashes look like split lashes and the ones I buy don't have a knot in the end, so can simply be applied where natural lashes are sparse from previous damage. These are great for creating a fuller look and only applied to one of your natural lashes.  They create volume until the client's natural lashes have recovered and grown back.

Bridal eyelash extensions - trial before the big day

This lady came in wanting to try out the eyelash extensions before her wedding in September. I am really pleased with the results and they suit her fantastically.

After a consultation, we decided on C curl for the glamorous look, 0.20 in thickness which is the mascara look and 11mm/13mm. I pre-warned her these will touch her sunglasses! I highly recommend having the eyelash extensions applied a few months before your wedding, so you have plenty of time to get used to them. You can subtly change between lengths and curls at your next eyelash extension infills appointment, so you don't have to stick with your original decision. These are a great idea for a wedding as you don't have to worry about your mascara running and ending up with the 'panda look' on your wedding day! Also, they last on average of 3 weeks before they need infilling, so if you are off on honeymoon straight after your wedding you won't have to worry about having no mascara on while on the beach and wake up with perfect eyelashes!

As you can see from the photographs these eyelash extensions have been individually bonded to the ladies natural eyelashes, so when her own eyelash falls out naturally it will have only one eyelash extensions attached to it. Your own eyelashes naturally fall out on average of every 90 days, hence why they need infilling around 2-3 weeks. The eyelash extensions are kept 2mm from your eyelid, so they won't irritate your eyes.

Everyone strictly needs a consultation/ test patch appointment prior to having eyelash extensions applied.

Semi-permanent eyelash extensions - Before and After

Due to popular request, I am taking more before photographs of the eyelash extensions I do.

I'm regularly asked, "what did they look like before fake lashes were applied?" This is a set of  Semi-permanent eyelash extensions using J curl, 0.25 thickness and 11mm/13mm in length.

This lady wanted the full false look with really thick lashes. I normally use 0.20 thickness, which is the mascara look. However I stock 0.07, 0.15, 0.20, 0.25 and 0.30 thickness lashes. However, the longer and thicker you go with your lashes though they harder they are to bond onto your natural lashes. For the best results, you need the ratio of contact with false eyelash extension and natural lash to be similar. The longer you go the less contact with the fake eyelash has with your natural eyelash.

The glue I use is extremely strong, so this length will last. We had a consultation to decide on the right style for her, we decided on J curl as it's very close to the natural curl of her own lashes, so would bond easier and give them the long length she wanted.  She was over the moon with the results :)

Eyelash extension special offers

A regular client of mine was chatting to me today about eyelash extension special offers which a friend of hers has bought through an online special offers company for a salon in Norwich.

I do a very detailed consultation for my clients first appointment, so she was able to pass on information to her friend. The eyelash extension special offer she purchased through the online company was for 50% off a full set of extensions, so only £25 instead of £50. However, when they looked at the offer more closely the first appointment was only for one hour, not the normal two hours which is required to individually bond each eyelash extension.

After a phone call to the salon, it turns out the offer was only for a half set not full set as advertised, so not such good value for money as the offer suggested please bear this in mind when purchasing eyelash extension special offers online.

After my client left I decided to do some research into this. A quick google for eyelash extension special offers on this money off websites and I could see why there was so much confusion. I can see many offers which are sold as ‘Full Set of Eyelash Extensions’, when reading the small print these are actually express lashes which only last up to 2 weeks,  but implied that they are semi-permanent ones. They are marketed as having a huge percentage off the sale price, but cleverly advertised as just ‘eyelash extensions’, only once you read the small print do you notice that a lot of the deals are half sets or express lashes. Express lashes aren’t individually bonded, so don’t last.

At my beauty salon in Norwich, I book long appointments for applying the lashes, so there is plenty of time to get every lash. I always have a full consultation and everyone is required to have a test patch done at least 48 hours before. At this appointment, I go through all the different options available and find out exactly what look is desired. The glue I use means my clients usually only need infills every 3 weeks. My infills and tidy up appointments are one hour long, allowing me time to clean them thoroughly and get every lash. Each client is clearly given aftercare instructions, both verbally and in writing, to ensure they maintain and care for their eyelash extensions properly.

Uneven lash growth update

Well, a while ago I posted about my client who had uneven lash growth. She came into the beauty salon for her regular 3 weekly infills and I thought you all might be interested in seeing what her eyelashes were like before I started the infills on her lashes. It really is outstanding how many natural eyelashes she has for me to individually place extensions onto now.  We both believe this is down to over curling her eyelashes in the past. Extremely happy with the outcome :-)
