Dried Out Mascara

So I heard that running hot/warm water over a thing of dried out mascara will make it usable again.... True/False?

I've never heard of that b4. I just throw mine out when it's dry

Yeah me too... but I LOVE this mascara and I can't afford a new tube of it right now. It still works, but not as well as it used to Grrrr lol Oookay, I found where I heard this... # 4 When your mascara is dry and not applying well, run it under hot water for about 5 minutes and it will be just like new.

Well, give it a try, what have you got to lose? And let us know how it worked!

Did it work?
Posted 19 January 2007 - 06:56 PM
I think it works, I have done it in the past.

Well, running hot water over it or soaking the closed mascara in a thing of hot water will kind of "melt" the mascara inside, so maybe the amount that is dried up around the edge of the inside of the bottle will kind of soften up and become usable once again. *shrugs*

Seems like it would work, never tried though!

Hmm so I tried it out and I noticed a difference from the last time I used it, nothing great, but definitely a difference.

i just toss mine out

you should probably toss it out. they say that you shouldn't keep mascara that long anyways...like no more than 2 months because it accumulates alot of bacteria.

If its dried out, it is probably old and you really shouldn't use it. You could get an eye infection or something.

I always throw mine out by the time it gets like that as i am scared of getting an infection or something but i always have a back up just incase i cant afford a new one or something, i would die without mascara....hhmmm maybe not but i wouldnt be able to leave my house! LMAO

i second tht!
morality was never the issue... its the temptations.

I've tried it and it works. I think you can only get a bit more mileage though as you need to keep in mind infections. So go for it but just until payday!
