Getting new beauty products is a lot like gaining a lot of new babies to love without having to go through labor.
And the best damn feeling in the world is covering your body* with new makeup.
But while we're focused on the freaking beautiful children we've just adopted...
We're not paying attention to this lil' symbol on the label.
If you use a product past its expiration date, the product either becomes ineffective (*cough* sunscreen *cough*) or it can possibly cause a bacterial infection.
Every beauty product should have the jar and number symbol on its packaging — whether it's on the product itself or on the disposable packing it comes in.
The countdown begins the day you open the makeup — not the day you buy it.
And here's the easiest way to make sure you never use expired products again.
