Step Into Our Cosmetic Case

August 21, 2012 at 6:29 pm 1 comment

Have your cosmetics and/or toiletries melted in their carrying cases yet? We took our makeup bags to the beach last week (not very smart) only to retrieve melted lip balms and spoiled lotions.  

Makeup purses and toiletry containers should be edited frequently. Makeup especially has a short shelf life and using products past their expiration date can lead to infection.


Hair and dust builds up easily too – take the time to empty the contents and clean out carrying cases. We vacuum ours! We’re not kidding.

Removing hair from brushes and combs helps significantly. And we love the idea of Windexing (it’s a verb to us) the little mirrors attached to compacts.

 Clean cases with a drop of your favorite essential oil or cologne – the scent will linger for weeks.
