There's one thing you probably never noticed about your beauty products
We all know there is no greater feeling in the world that walking out those beauty store doors and rushing home to try on all your new beauty product goodies!
However, before you start applying the 50 products you bought all at once, there is something you're probably not doing.

Read the label! On the back of the product you'll see a symbol. A little jar and then the number of months the product should be used for, starting from the day you first open the product.

This way you'll know when its time to throw away that clunky mascara that's just a vicious cycle of bacteria from the brush to the tube to your eye, yuck!

Think of your beauty projects like you do the food in your refrigerator -- they have an expiration date, and when it's past, don't use them.
