Just before writing this post, I was doing my night skincare routine and randomly thought that it would take me quite a long time to finish my Missha FTE because I only need a small amount every time. I have the 150ml bottle which I consider to be a lot in comparison to the Cosrx Galactomyces 95 at 100 ml. Naturally, I checked on the expiry date so I’ll know when to lay it off.
I have the original formulation and it only has the date of manufacture at the bottom (I don’t know if the new one has an expiry date though).
April 17, 2014. Am I right? This bottle is more than 2 years old. Is it still safe to use this on my skin??
I didn’t have any allergic reactions or irritations so I guess it’s still okay, but better safe than sorry! With urgency, I googled for the shelf life of the Missha FTE which led me to this Asian Beauty reddit post. Seriously, Asian Beauty reddit is a blessing. Thank you to everyone devoting their time and effort in making this world a better place, one skincare product at a time. For those who are too lazy to click on the link, it says that Missha products have a shelf life of a good 3-4 years. What a relief! It also led me to http://checkcosmetic.net/ which is a cosmetic and perfume batch code analyzer, according to the website. Very helpful especially for skincare and makeup junkies, no?
Just to be sure, I entered the batch code of what I have and the result is:
Glad to know that I won’t be needing an essence for another year! Well, probably a year and a half because I still have the Cosrx Galactomyces 95 to finish as well.
