So I was reading a 'All You' magazine article that was talking about expiration dates for beauty products (makeup, skincare, hair products, etc)and I thought this would be a great blog share.
Foundation: Up to 2 years
Lipstick & Lipgloss: 2 years
Mascara: 3 months
Blush and Face Powder: 2 years
Nail Polish: 1 year
Anti-aging or Acne treatments: 3 months to a year
Natural beauty products: Up to 6 months
Shampoo & Conditioner: About 3 years
Body Lotion: 2 to 3 years
Sunscreen: 2 to 3 years
Deoderant: Up to 2 years
Perfume: About 3 years
Look for this symbol below marked on the back of most all products to let you know how long it lasts after being opened.
One marked like this lasts 12 months or 1 year.
Eyeshadow was not listed in the article but one of mine is marked 30m, so 2 and 1/2 years. I definitely break the rules for eyeshadow. If they get gross i'll toss them but I feel like 2 years goes by way to quickly to just toss everything out at that timeframe. I don't share my makeup and clean my brushes frequently. *shrugs* Also I know I don't go with the 1 year on nail polish. The rest I feel like I follow simply because I use them up faster than their expiration dates.
Anyone else break these rules or are you a stickler at tossing stuff out right away?
