Expired products

Hi Picky squad! I am guilty of using my skincare products and makeup products also when they are expired…I know this can be risky but they cost a lot and there’s no way I can finish them in one year. Do you also do this?

if its skincare products, i try to use them before the expiring date. But i also use them after the expiry date.. i think the date is just an indication like food and u should judge for yourself whether u feel they are not safe to use anymore. Except for products that oxidizes (fast) like sunscreen, vit C, retinol.. they will do more harm than good if you use them after the expiring date. Same for makeup products, i have some that are passed their expiry date… thats why I have only bought one make up product this entire year. Need to finish the others before i will allow myself to buy new ones. I store all my skincare and makeup items in drawers in my desk so its not exposed to light or humidity to keep them last longer.

I used them on my body… actually skincare has an expiry day ranging from 2-3 years mostly, so I usually make an effort to use the products with closer expiry date to reduce waste and we can also buy leas skincare altogether(I know is hard😂😂😂)

I do not, I try to throw away even if they cost a lot. What I also do - I got an excel sheet to keep track on my products. There are also phone apps that helps with it
