A friend of mine (and 5K buddy) sent me a text message one day asking me why I didn’t tell her about the little photo above. It’s located on the back of makeup product packaging. She had no idea that the little image was there much less what it meant. So after laughing, I told her I’d do a blog post on it thinking that there may be others in the beauty world who don’t know about it either.
The little image you see above will be located on the back of most of your beauty products. It’s the expiration date which lets you know when you should toss it.

Tip: Use a waterproof sharpie to write the date you purchased your unopened product somewhere on the packaging. This way you’ll know how long you’re suppose to keep it or when it’s time to throw it away.
