Makeup expiration time

Makeup is something we put on our skin nearly every day. Just as you wouldn’t want to eat a spoiled product, it goes the same with cosmetics. You don’t want to put a product that has expired on your face, right? Because there might be some serious consequences.

If you are looking for a new face cream and have sensitive skin this one might be just for you. I bought Iwostin Sensitia Moisturizing Cream with a touch of uncertainty.
