Everybody loves to shop the latest trends in skincare and makeup but have you given thought to what the expiration date of those products you are using are?
Probably like many people reading this, I have a box of opened goods where I got carried away shopping on a special promotion spree or received a foundation where I have used once and left for quite some time unused.
Let's take a closer look at the products we use daily and the recommended "Use By" dates that are given:

Best Before Date
Once the product is opened use by date
I is the 9th Alphabet and stands for September, 19 means the year 2019, K will stand for the factory code, 30 will mean the date of production so the production date will be 2019 Sep 30
