Whether you want to believe it or not, there's a shelf life on the makeup and other beauty products you're using everyday since they're prone to holding different types of bacteria and germs. I know it may be difficult to part from your favorite lipstick because it's limited edition, or that overly priced, anti-aging serum that you spent serious money on, but there are some dangerous health concerns that come along with using expired/outdated products. Become familiar with the timeframe on certain beauty products and avoid putting your health at risk in order to look good.

Oh for sure @TessStevens it definitely adds uo
@TessStevens I'm guilty of doing the same thing! Once mascara got clumpy or slightly dried out I would immediately throw it away. I have learned that different products last longer than others.
I'm one of those people who has like a million different kinds of everything, and I cycle through all of it every two or three months. This is a great post, I used to throw out mascara like every other week, but that's just ridiculous! lol
@skee292 it'll definitely save me money!
