how old is your make-up?



i can't take credit for finding this website it was one i found on a post over on lipglossiping and i thought it was too amazing not to share with you all!

about a year ago now i wrote a post on make-up expiry dates and how important it is to throw away all of those bits that clog up your make-up collection for years on end, holding loads of dirt and bacteria. i find the main problem with this is that i tend to forget when i bought things so they could actually be much older that i'm telling myself.

enter cosmetics calculator....


basically you input the brand and the products batch code, then the website will tell you exactly how old the product is! perfect for helping you decide which products might have run their course.


how are you when it comes to hoarding old products?

    1. That's okay! I do the same. I also try to judge by the look but that can be a little tricky, this makes it super easy!
