How Long Do Moisturizers Last?

I was wondering how long a moisturizer will last. I bought anew age repair day cream from Avon about a year and a half ago. I did use it, but when I got married in (09) I packed it up among many other things. I just found it and would like to continue to use it but afraid to. Is it still good, or should I just throw it away? Thank You so much for your answer. Dorothy





Hi Dorothy,

Any skin product that contains active ingredients like vitamin C or alpha hydroxy, will lose it's potency after a certain time, especially once it's been opened and exposed to the air.

So while your moisturizer probably won't hurt your skin -- it probably isn't as potent as it was when you first purchased it.

What I do with left over moisturizers is use it on my hands, legs, feet, and other body parts instead of wasting it and throwing it out.

I experiment a lot with facial skin products and usually have a ton of left over moisturizers that I didn't particularly like for my face....so I try to recoup my costs by using it my body.

I keep some by my bedside and smaller ones in my purse during the winter to keep my hands moist.

Hope this helps.....

How long does your moisturizer last?

by Wendy

Hi,

I have very dry skin, especially on my face. With fall and winter coming I'm dreading how my skin is going to look. I can't find a good moisturizer for my face that lasts and isn't greasy or shiny.

Help,
Wendy

Hi Wendy,

Thanks for your email. I have found the perfect moisturizer that is water proof, rub proof, and contains botanical extracts. It stays on for 8 hours. I even use on my hands and it still stays on even after I wash them.
