L’Oréal Warehouse Sale for Spring 2014

with 8 comments

I was a little late in getting to this sale this time around and didn’t go until the very last day. I think if I had gone earlier, there might have been more things to choose from, but being that it was the last day, I think all the really good things were gone and all that was left were the so-so things. I didn’t get a lot of things this time around, probably because of what was left.

As much as I love going to the L’Oréal warehouse sales, I’m finding that the same things are being put out year after year. You also have to look at the dates on packages very carefully. Sunscreen I found to have expiry dates ranging from Dec 2014 to Jun 2016. I spotted a whole bunch of Lancôme Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate (not the newer Advanced Genifique) and they had dates on the bottom of the boxes that had “JN 00”! So June 2000? Now I’m pretty sure that isn’t an expiry date but maybe a production date? Does this mean that it has been sitting around for 14 years?! As much as I wanted to stock up on Genifique (I love it sooo much), I couldn’t bring myself to buy something that’s potentially 14 years old.

[Edit: April 1, 2014 – Thanks to Wendyyy, the date I thought was on the bottom of the package is actually a batch code. I used Cosmetic Calculator to look up the production and expiry dates on my products and they’re still good! Next time there’s a sale, I’m going to have this handy on my phone so I can check while I’m on the go!]

Did you go to the warehouse sale? What did you pick up?
