How To Keep Track of your Product Expirations

We all know that cosmetic products have a shelf life and most people want to keep to it. So what do you do? Do you keep all of your receipts and look back when you purchased an item? Do you keep an Excel file on everything and organize the items by purchase date, and expiration date? Gosh no! I mean, you could, I’m not judging you. But…

This post is dedicated to how I keep track of all my product expirations.

A few years ago, when I was a Younique presenter I needed to label all of my products to make them legible for my customers. I bought a labeler that has lasted for many years and I love it.

I choose the smallest text size with the date purchased or opened. *After doing this for about a year, I now put the calculated expired date just in case the label wipes off like the one below.

This foundation was purchased almost a year ago, but the label says that it is good until 24 months after opening the package.

One also wants to remember that in order to keep products lasting (not turning bad before the expiration date) is to keep them out of the sun and heat. This means that the bathroom may not be the best place to keep your makeup!
