Default Arbonne Question?

Sorry, I am posting this question here as I could not find an Arbonne thread...I heard they changed the name but I could not find that board, either...Anyways, a friend of mine recently quit selling Arbonne. She gave me tons of samples of the RE9 and other skin care samples. They have an expiration date.....probably expired for 6 mo to a year. My question is whether Arbonne has said it is okay to still use these products or if I should get rid of them. I have heard that skin care companies were recently required to put a shelf life on their products, even when they do not in fact expire. I would love honest answers and not just answers people want to give me so I will buy more Arbonne! LOL. Thanks so much!

Hi Megan,

Regarding samples from any company, my suggestion is to smell them. If they smell "off" don't use them.

Anyone else?

I agree with Traci - the best thing to do is smell them. For most of the @rbonne products I know that the company recommends a shelf life of 2 years unopened and 1 year once opened. Part of the reason for the date is for the products with sunscreen as (I think) companies are required to have an expiration date for sunscreens.

Hope that helps-but you nose will know best!

Take care and make it a great day : )

I would not use them even if they smell okay. Scent is not the only indicator of bacterial compromise. Better to just toss them. BTW, this is my professional advice with regard to ANY expired product. Do not donate them, just toss 'em.

I agree--don't use anything past its expiration date. There could be chemical changes to the product, beyond smell, which means it could have an adverse affect if you put it on your skin.
