Spring Cleaning Task #6: Toss Beauty Products
There are a lot of things to consider when deciding what to keep and what to trash from your makeup bag. As a general rule, cream and gel-based products have an average shelf-life of three to six months, particularly if the item has been used.

Do a regular audit of your beauty products and divide them into two groups: Your everyday makeup and your backup stash. Organize them into groups based on how they’re used (think: haircare, makeup, etc.) and keep an eye on expirations dates so nothing becomes a bacteria trap.
