Make-up Shelf Life - pt 1

Categories: Make-up Lessons

There's a bazillion (yes, that's a word!) of articles for the shelf life of make-up but I don't think people really realise why it's so important.

I asked someone recently at a make-up lesson if they had mayonnaise in the fridge that was 6 months out of date but there was still loads left in the jar, would they eat it? Answer: Hell no, and dry retch.

So damn it, why are people still using mascara on their EYES that are out of date?!

If you're wearing mascara every day, 3 months of use and you're done. It doesn't matter if there are loads left; after that amount of time the product will not be doing its job properly and you're putting your peepers at risk! Is it really worth risking an eye infection instead of just spending £10.00 (or less!) on a new mascara?

I bet there are people with drawers of make-up that they can't bear to throw away because it once cost a lot of money. I know I've got stuff that needs chucking, it's just a case of getting round to it but it's certainly not in my kit or being used. If you don't know how long you've had a product or its shelf life, you're going to be putting your health at risk and won't be getting the best out of the product. Chances are if you've had something over 12 months you're not using it, and it should probably just get chucked.

This is likely to be an ongoing topic of the blog, so I've labelled it as part 1. I cover information about the shelf life of cosmetics in my 1-2-1 make-up lessons, so if any of the above sounds like you and you'd like to book in with me, contact me here :)
