Watch out for the Beauty product you buy!
I am one of those, who instantly get attracted to beauty product and jump into buying without checking the details on the labels. After all, the store wouldn’t keep it in the shelves or would not sell right??
Well, technically we aren’t doing the right thing. Every product comes with an instruction so does all other range of Beauty products.
Here’s some important things to follow before we use these Beauty product:
- Read the direction of use.Its very important to use the direction,specially for shampoos, conditioners etc.
- Watch out for Allergy warnings.There is a reason why hair colours and others come with allergy warning on it label.Some products can cause serious allergic reactions.Hair color instructions always recommend a skin patch test at least 48 hours before applying the color to rule out any serious allergies.
- Check the ingredient list. The list of banned ingredient in India is not clear and there’s isn’t much information out there online for the same.In U.S. the FDA has prohibited the following chemicals from any product sold in the U.S.:
Prohibited cattle material (tallow and its by-products)
- And lastly don’t forget to remember the golden rule of makeup: Check the expiry date and shelf life.Beauty products do have expiration dates, and most brands print that information on the label.
As a general rule here the shelf life for makeup:
Mascara – 3-6 months
Eye Pencil – 2 yrs
Eye shadow -1-2 yrs
Lipstick – 2 yrs
Powder/Blush – 2yrs
Foundation – 1- 1 &half yrs.
Take your time & read before you buy. It always helps to be alert.
