Unfortunately..They Expire too!

Every once in a while, we all fine that lipgloss we forgot about in some purse pocket..and every time (at least for me) it is like I’ve bought a new one!

I know it is hard to separate from our beloved beauty products, but just like food, or the most part of things, they do have an expiration date too. Luckily for us the majority of products have a long term expiry, but it is better to keep the expiration date in mind, to avoid allergies or to just keep some useless products.

Yes useless, because some products when they reach their expiration date, just quit to do what they were ment for.

On the back of every product (so the law says), there is the sketch of a little opened box with a number aside; This means that once you open the product, it can last the number of months reported next to the box. I personally try to sign with a permanent marker the date of purchase on every product I have, so that I know when I have to buy a new one and I don’t get confused.

Down here I’ll have for you a little list of products and their lasting, hoping that will be helpful!
