Nothing lasts forever-YOUR MAKEUP & CREAMS HAVE AN EXPIRY DATE- VERY IMPORTANT!
Skincare & makeup do have a timed shelflife. The do expire. We never notice- as we throw it out once it’s finished.
I’m going to explain to you- when you need to toss things out. The reason for tossing them out is because they might change in color, contaminate with bacteria, infections.. etc.
Behind many (not all) skincare jars/tubes/bottles- you’ll have a special symbol called the “open jar symbol”
Which looks like this:
If they don’t have the symbol, then follow what I’m about to tell you.
How long to keep using each product
FACECREAM: 1-2 years
FACEWASH: 1year preferrably.
EYECREAM: 1 year only- high risk of eye contamination if the product is old.
Makeup: (yes, makeup does expire.. might change in color too!)
MASCARA: 3-6 months- make sure or you might get an eye infection
LIQUID FOUNDATION: 1 year Max
POWDER: 2 years
CONCEALER: 1year Max
CREAM BLUSH: 1 year
EYESHADOW: Some experts say 1 year. Some say 3 years. So some good news here!
EYELINER (liquid): 6 months
LIPLINER PENCILS: up to 2-3 years
EYELINER PENCILS: up to 2-3 years
LIPSTICKS: 2 years. Some experts even say 4 years! If it smells bad—throw it.
KEEP IN MIND: those things tend to finish before expiry if used on a daily basis. I know they might be expensive, but you can hold on to them for 2-3 months after they are “supposed” to expire
