I was recently cleaning my room for the New Year and unearthed a ton of products tucked away that I had completely forgot I had. As tempting as it was for me to hang on to them (I am very attached to beauty products and have a hard time at the thought of having to let any of them go to waste), I realized that I need to put the health of my skin first. So, I had to check the expiration dates on the packages. The problem? Most of the products didn’t have the expiration date listed, so what I decided to do next is look up the expiration date online. Yup. Many of you may not be aware, but one of the best ways to find out the shelf life of a product is to simply look it up online. All you have to do is locate the batch code or a lot number that’s usually printed on the packaging or product.
Here are some apps and websites you can use to help assist you:
- Cosmetic calculator (website)
- CheckFresh (website)
- Check Your Cosmetic (app)
- Beauty Keeper (app)
One thought on “When does your makeup really expire?”
