so i put on this bp i had from like 2006, back when it was the "clear skin regimen." i put it on twice and had a really REALLY bad reaction. i mean my whole face was swollen. i could barely open my left eye because the whole are was so swolen, and no i didn't apply the bp anywhere near my eye area. after that, my face calmed down a bit but i now how these really noticeable fine lines around my eyes and the whole eye area is now flakey and rough, along with my whole face. and YES i did moisturize.

so could it be that the bp was expired? or is this just something that happens with BP? cause if so, this is not how it was before.... :boohoo:

approximately a 12-month storage time if your its in 4C Environment.

5-7 minutes if its in a 70C environment.

I wouldn't be using that if i were you. >.^

yea i threw it out after the bad reaction. just really hope it doesn't have lasting effects.

Yeah, way to go. Just buy new batch and you won't have those reations.

Depends though, you might be allergic.

It's important not to use outdated products. I have never heard of this reaction, however. Have you used BP before? It sounds like it.

I just checked my BP, exp. says 03/10. Is that month/day or day/month?

I bought it only about 3 months ago :doubt: Just my luck, lol.

It's month/year. You've got over a year to go before it expires.

Keep in mind that 30°C is way hot. You should be storing your BP at room temperature (21°C / 68°F) or a bit cooler (some people put it in the fridge, even). I believe the expiration date printed on the bottles assumes room temperature storage.

That's March of 2010. You're still good.

Dan's gel is good for two years from when it's manufactured, so you guys usually get fresh bp that will last a long time if unopened. Once opened though, use it within 6 months for best results.

I think the biggest factor with expired stuff is that it loses its efficacy.

Then that is awesome. Especially since I bought cleanser/treatment/moisturizer x2.

Thanks for the info. :dance:
