Beauty Bag Spring Cleaning

March 22, 2013

It’s your favorite product. Ever. You can’t live without it.

But wait, it’s been in your makeup bag how long?!

We understand. We’ve even been there. Some products, even the ones you use religiously, are long lasting and if there’s product left there’s no reason to get rid of it, right? Wrong.

You wouldn’t eat expired foods and beauty products need to be kept fresh for precisely the same reason. Pay attention to expiration dates and note when you open something so you know when it’s time to go. For those that don’t have ‘use by’ dates printed, you can often find them out by simply reaching out to the company with a batch code or other identifying code that is printed on the bottle or tube (if it’s Juice Beauty always feel free to give us a call).

In the spirit of spring cleaning, set aside a few minutes this week to do a quick clean out of your beauty routine! Toss anything that’s past it’s prime and make note of any products you’ll stash away once the weather shifts for the spring/summer seasons.

A few basic guidelines when it comes to how long a product has been opened we recommend when deciding what to toss:

  • Liquid or Cream Foundation – 6-12 months
  • Mascara – 3 months
  • Loose Powder (facial powders, eye shadows, blush) – 1-2 years
  • Cleansers, Moisturizers and Serums – 6-18 months
  • SPF – Most often there are expiration dates printed on SPF products, use them!

We’re fans of being thorough so check out BellaSugar’s suggestions,  Rue Magazine’s Rue Rules and Glitter Guide’s 5-Step Plan to a Clean Makeup Bag too!
