Recently, l found in my cupboard, five Olay Moisturisers that l had either bought or received as presents.
As l didnít know which was the oldest, l rang Olay to see if they could tell me if they were still ok to use.
Using the production numbers on the packs, the lady was able to tell me when they were manufactured.
I think, she said, it was up to three years that they were ok but after that, some of the ingredients werenít as effective.
One of my moisturisers was five years old and l have been lavishing it on to use it up quickly!
I have written the dates of manufacture on the remaining moisturisers.
Just enter the brand,cosmetics and perfume and the digits on the back of the pack , tells you when that batch was manufactured.
