Perlier – white almond bath cream – Expiration date
I found an opened 1/2 gallon of the white almond moisturizing bath cream in the back of my bathroom closet. I forgot all about it.
I used about 1/4 of it & it is years old.
Does anyone know if it is safe to use? There isn’t any warning or date on the label. It still smells fine.
Thanks for your help.
I honestly couldn’t say but your post reminded me how lovely this cream is. I used to use it in my jetted tub, remember Skip saying it wouldn’t harm the jets as some products do.
My derm said if it smells okay and looks okay it’s usually safe to use, you can always try a little on your hands first.
It may not be as effective as it was but most products usually smell bad or look different if they are harmful
personally, i would throw it out and get a new one here on hsn. perlier offers so many great items at so many great prices- esp. on a perlier visit or todays special- that it is just not worth risking damage to your skin and/or health. maybe next time try getting something smaller so that you know you will finish it. i still pine over some of the larger sizes that perlier brings into inventory, esp. for a todays special, but i don’t end up buying because it is just too big for me. also, another plus with purchasing smaller sizes is that i can afford to experiment with different scents etc. as well as stay dedicated to my signature, go-to scents. regardless, you can never go wrong with anything perlier. i say, let go of the remorse and pitch this old bottle- because you are worth it!!! xoxo.
Skip has stated in the past 2-3 years unopened and 1 year when opened.
You have to look on the container to see when it was made it’s a 6 digit number for example I have an open body cream the number reads 421001 the first digit is the year it was made in this case 4=2014, 21 is the week it was made and unfortunately I don’t recall what the other numbers represent.
One more thought. I agree with BB, you can always use it as hand soap. I refill our dispensers with shower gel that I find on sale. When I actually figured out the cost, I’ve saved a few bucks. Shower and bath soap are much more fragrant compared to typical hand soap. Guests who use our guest bathroom always compliment our hand soap. Just a thought.
I would call Perlier 877-737-5353 to verify, but I think you’ll be okay to use it if it looks and smells okay.
I remember Skip saying on air that there is a 2-3 year shelf life on the products.
Have you tried calling the co. ?
That being said, shelf life can depends on several things.
If the product has been opened ,that could shorten the shelf life.
If opened & stored in a cool dry place, it will last longer that the same thing opened & stored near the shower heat/steam.
Also check in the bottle to see if there is any black mold….although if you have a good nose, you might detect a smell that would tip you off.
Heat from the shower will shorten the shelf life (if your products are kept in the shower).
If the product smells fine & it is the same consistency as when new, it’s probably fine.
Try washing your hands with it & see how it goes.
Seriously…they must have a long shelf life since Skip encourages everyone to stock up and buy several of the 3 Liter size shower gels when they are available !!
If it were me I certainly wouldn’t use it. Too many variables to know the content condition. Better to be safe!
Thanks for your reply. It is better to be safe.
Honestly I would NOT use it. When bathing, soaking,showering you are exposing 100% of your pores if you get my point lol.
PLAY IT SAFE WHEN IN DOUBT…..
