Skincare & Cosmetic Expiration Date??

Everybody loves to shop the latest trends in skincare and makeup but have you given thought to what the expiration date of those products you are using are?

Probably like many people reading this, I have a box of opened goods where I got carried away shopping on a special promotion spree or received a foundation where I have used once and left for quite some time unused.

Let's take a closer look at the products we use daily and the recommended "Use By" dates that are given:
