A few days back I picked up Elizabeth Arden 8 hour moisturizer. I didn’t pick up the original 8 hour cream because it was quite sticky and thought it would be best for winters. I wanted a solid moisturizer but a non sticky one. So I went ahead with this. Surprisingly when I purchased this cream, I picked up a lot of other stuff as well. I checked the manufacturing date of every single product I had purchased. I even ended up not picking up some of the products from a brand because they were manufactured in 2010. This cream did not have any manufacturing date written anywhere on the box. I still went ahead and bought it.
I was a bit taken aback to see the crumpling texture of the cream but then thought may be that was the actual texture. I started using the cream. I had a little tingling sensation but thought that was normal. The next day I had dry patches on my cheeks. I thought it was weather change. I used my Clinique Moisture surge spray for 2 days and my skin was back to normal. Again I started using it but because of hot weather or whatever reason, I was used it only during the day and not at night. Today morning my skin was fine and I used it again , by evening my cheeks were red and irritated. I was quite horrified to see the condition of my skin. 🙁 I decided to check all my products through the Cosmetic Calculator and woah! I have the culprit infront of you. The worst is that I have to attend a party tonight and my skin is so freakin’ irritated. :((
Neither the box nor the tube have manufacturing details printed on it. The product is expired. Look at the proof below.
Take a look at the swatch. The cream is almost crumpling.Earlier I thought that may be that was the texture of the cream but now I realize that the cream has been damaged and expired.
Don’t know what to say but I am really furious at the moment. The cream is for whopping Rs 1950. I don’t have the bill now and my skin is crying out loud for help. I don’t know which brand does not print the manufacturing date on their product. Sucks!
