Have you ever thought, it’s time for the house to have a big spring clean when spring rolls around?
We agree not only for the house but our makeup kits too!
It’s also the perfect time to experiment with your everyday look, try something new, something fresh and awakening! Maybe a new blush, eyeshadow or lipstick?
So let's get to the facts, how long should you keep your products for?
Products shelf life
Pure loose Minerals are inorganic and do not contain any water so bacteria cannot form or be supported in them. So, in theory, our loose Mineral products should last forever! However, wet or dirty make-up brushes or exposure to moisture can contaminate your make-up. Therefore, for safety reasons, once you have opened your loose products we recommend if you have not used them up in 36-48 months, it is a good idea to recommend clients discard them but not essential if they have used correct storage and sanitation methods.
All Products that are wet or creamy contain moisture and or oils. Once these products are opened to the air they will oxidize and eventually go off. When products are off, they will be rancid and have an unpleasant smell. Remember if it starts smelling bad, chances are it probably is – throw it out! You will find unperfumed products may have a natural Wax smell and that is ok.
Creamy products: Lipstick, creamy lip-gloss, pencil liners, concealers, Cream foundations, Cream blush, cream highlighter, etc, depending on environment and use should be discarded after 12-30 months.
Wet products: Any product that contains water such as foundation Primer or liquid style foundations containing water after 12 months.
Powdered products: The recommended shelf life of opened commercial loose or pressed powder products is 36 months.
Being mindful not only of product shelf life but hygiene with the products you’re putting on your skin is essential for healthy glowing skin.
Never share your personal makeup products, brushes or tools with others. Always replace your products after any skin conditions, such as a cold sore, sty, conjunctivitis as you may have contaminated your mascara or lipstick.
It is not worth the risk of spreading anything around your skin. Cleaning your brushes daily is very important, especially if you suffer from open or inflamed acne or skin conditions, to stop the possibility of any cross-contamination in and out of product to other areas on the skin. To avoid cross-contamination, we recommend decanting your product into a spare dish or container.
