Spring Clean – Makeup Expiration Guide

MakeUp Expiration Guide Do you know how old your beauty products are? I think it’s safe to say at one point or another, we’ve all held on to one beauty product or another for a bit longer than we should have. But…did you know that beauty products do have expiration dates, and perhaps a lot shorter than you think? Take mascara for instance…do you have mascara that’s over 2 to 3 months old??? If so, don’t risk damaging your lashes, spreading bacteria onto your eyes, risking getting pink eye…etc. Trust us, it’s not worth it. Toss out the old and bring in the new.
