dont usually have them, usually say 12/24 months from opening

if you look on the back of product should have a pot with 6/12/18 etc on it, that'll be from opening :thumbsup::)

btw, any recommendations for redness on face? wonder if I go to GP they'll be able to prescribe something.

I tried loads,garnier, clinique, liz earle, all good skin calms from superdrug, none work

blushing redness or skin redness ? either way you should see your GP by applying loads of ointments you may be making the condition worse.

You might have seen this symbol with a number and an M next to it on some of your beauty products. This little icon is called a PAO symbol (standing for Period-After-Opening) and refers to the expiration date of your product. The number next to the M represents the length of time in months your product will keep for after you have opened it (i.e. 12 M = 12 months). It's not rocket science, but if you haven't even noticed it, start looking out.

If you are like me and have no frame of reference for when you opened a particular product, I suggest a tiny little label with the date you first use it affixed to the top, side, or bottom of the bottle, tube, or jar. It may seem a little OCD, but I will reiterate my point that if you wouldn't take expired cold medicine, don't use expired eye cream.

Expiration dates (or guidelines, really) are especially significant when talking about anything liquid, anything made for the eye area, and anything into which you stick your finger. Again, common sense, but heed these warnings! You may think you are squeaky clean, but that tube of DiorShow is a breeding ground for bacteria.

not my words but hope helps

yes you can, if you have redness its probably an idea to see your gp at some stage but most of thigs that cover that sort of thing is cosmetic stuff, have a look on qvc, they do returns so try the lot - lol

you could also pop into your local chemist, always find the pharmicists know more than the gp

as above, thanks sass :thumbsup:

Go to your GP - you may require a proper diagnosis rather than that of a pharmacist or someone on an internet forum.
