WNLSY: Crusty Mascara! When to throw yours away

This week, let’s delve into the world of mascara. I’ll provide some essential tips on recognizing when it’s time to bid farewell to your mascara, and I’ll also introduce you to some fantastic clean mascara brands if you’re on the lookout for the perfect one.

Do you know when your mascara expires? For the longest time, I didn’t either.

When to throw away your mascara…?

Approximately 3 months.

Unlike powder products that can remain good for 1-2 years, mascara, being a liquid product used near your eyes, poses an increased risk of spreading bacteria. Therefore, the best practice is to replace your mascara about once a quarter.

Now that you know when to throw away your mascara, consider tossing any that you know you’ve had for over 6 months. Those can definitely go. Then, assess what you’re left with. If you find yourself mascara-less and in need of a replacement, I’ll share some cleaner options for mascara below!

While Beautycounter offers their Think Big: All-in-One Mascara, I want to provide a few alternatives in case it didn’t work for you. My aim is to assist you in transitioning to cleaner, safer products that you genuinely love!
