I'm Jana. Nice to meet you!

I have make up in my bag from 2003... no joke. After reading this article... I'm (probably) going to throw it out. So here you go... When it comes to your make up back or other bathroom products... when do you throw things out?
From an article in yahoo health with advice from Sonya Dakar
SKINCARE products: 2 years
SPF: FDA makes them put on an expiration date. Use that.
FACE MASKS: 18 months... but if its starting to dry out, toss it.
FOUNDATION: 6-8 months.
POWDER: 18 months
ZIT CREAM: Use expiration dates
MASCARA: 3 months (OMG...3 months! Uh oh)
PENCILS: As long as you sharpen as you use, up to 2 years.
LIQUID EYE LINER: 3 months. Don't mess around with eye stuff.
LIPSTICK/ STAIN: 2 years. But sniff it... if it smells off, toss.
HAIR PRODUCTS: Many contain alcohol as a preservative. Should last a few years. But if it looks or smells off, toss.
NAIL CARE: Use Expiration dates. If ingredients are seperating, toss.
One great tip they gave is to buy your products in smaller portions. That way you are less likely to keep them laying around until they go bad.
Needless to say... I've got a lot of products to throw away. Oh Goodie.
