A Beauty Tip You Can Use...

Recently I shared with you a story about using bad (expired) makeup. I had a small jar of eye wrinkle cream in my makeup drawer. After cleaning out the makeup drawer, I decided to keep the eye wrinkle cream (an expensive brand) and use it all up. So after washing my face that evening I applied it around my eyes. By time the next morning arrived, my eye lid had PUFFED UP and it was red, tender and swollen up! I looked like I had some type of contagious disease!!! It was embarrassing and I was miserable for days!!!

The moral to the above story is DON'T use OLD MAKEUP. 
Toss it out, when in doubt.

Since makeup/beauty products have a limited shelf life, let's NOT take chances when it has expired.

BEAUTY TIP: use a permanent marker and DATE your new makeup containers when you add them to your drawer....

  1. It's a hard lesson to learn but you only need to learn it once! I have older relatives that want to clear out the stuff but can't bear to throw anything away-don't tell, but I throw it out when they give it to me! I have really sensitive skin in the first place, so I just don't take any chances!

  2. So I scrolled down and didn't read first but thought, "Wow, now Sharpie has an eye-liner. I bet it's really long lasting."

  3. Nice post. I never use old make-up as I had a bad experience once.

  4. I date make-up for the date I need to toss it, not the date I open it. That way I don't have to remember later. (I do the same for food in the fridge and freezer.) Somehow it just works better that way.

  5. Lisa, I like the idea of writing on the date to toss. tis

  6. I am glad to catch an idea from your article. This looks absolutely perfect. People always search for natural remedies for skin careand your information will be very helpful to all of us. Thanks for sharing this wonderful post. I take and suggest everyone to take care of their skin and face.
