What happens if I use expired facial lotion?..

.. One of my facial lotions have expired last month.. what will happen if I use it?..is it safe?.. just curious
Dollar brand:

Probably nothing will happen, some of the ingredience that were use to make it work, probably is less potenant. If you do get any kind of facial irritation, throw it away..........

Knight:

Thank you billyjean.. will buy a new one and just use the expired on in the house and see what happens..

Michelle:

Years ago this was not an issue. My Grandmother, Aunts, cousins, etc, have things that have been in their cabinets for a long time and still use them from time to time. Basically, it's what your comfort zone is.

Knight:

Thank you Michelle ;0)

Michelle:

you're welcome : )

Wanda:

Some lotions can actually start to burn your skin if applied after they have expired. Others simply loose their effectiveness. Also, any lotion that is also a sunscreen looses its sun protection over time. For better information, go to this link: http://www.cosmopolitan.com/style/tips/lotion-life-spans

Basically, if the lotion smells different, has certain ingredients, or is seperating you will want to toss it. And if the lotion has lost moisture over time it may become too thick and clog your pores :( I would not want clogged pores.

ha ha ha, and self tanning lotions could make you look really funny if used when expired. I only know through the grape-vine so to speak, but heard enough that I'd not mess around with them! lol :)

Knight:

Thank you D.. I went out and bought me a new face lotion.. was nervous in using the expired one.. Self tanners is not for me no way!... I have heard strange things about them and the people I know who have used it were better off tanning on the lawn lol.. thank you again ;0)

Chris:

you'll get OLD results.

Knight:

That is scary!!..

Your beautiful display pic might turn bad.. Which I don't wanna happen..

Knight:

Aww thank you.. I guess the lotion is expired for a reason..

Obama4Prez:

No Prob gal :)
Be happy always :)

Redneck Rev:

I have never looked at the expiration date on products before. You could probably google it to see if they recommend using it after the date. I am willing to bet that nothing will happen though. It probably just gets weak after a while though and won't be as effective.

Knight:

You may be right.. it may be weak.. will google it later when I get back.. thank you QA ;0)

Albert Page:

I wouldn't worry about it. I had lotion once under my sink and I found it one day when searching for some lotion. I opened it and it smelled like some poisonouus chemical and was really strange. But it had expired about 3 years before....
lol
I doubt a month will matter.

Knight:

lmao!.. ::stomps your toes::

Albert Page:

GRRRRRR. You know what that does to me nutball. :)

Knight:

oH yEs ::grins::

Tee:

I would think it is just less effective...Id use it anyway.

Knight:

Ok.. just curious.. I will go out and buy a new one..
