It was only recently that I learned that almost every cosmetic has a period of which the product is okay, a sell by date if you will, and is symbolised by an open tub with a number followed by M - signifying the number of months the product is 'in date'.
This shocked me and worried me quite a bit, because if I threw out things I'd owned for longer than it said on the packaging - I don't think I'd have anything left!
I received a FCUK gift set for Christmas two years ago. I hadn't got round to using the products as I had other products to use up first. I tried them once when I first got them (too much excitement to try new products!) but that was it. However, although they say 12 months on the bottle, there's no actual sign that they are 'off'. They smell, look and feel the same as any other product I've used, so what does it mean?
I'm not quite sure why I'm writing this post. I guess it's to find out your opinion, and whether you even look at it? We all know we should throw out mascaras after 6 months, but is it a bad thing if you don't? Has anyone really had a bad reaction to something, or is it just to save the company if something does?
Excuse the rambly post, but I'm looking forward to your comments!
