Dear Valued Consumer,
Thank you for your interest in Clinique.
Unopened products should be good for at least three years under normal use conditions provided they are not exposed to extreme heat or cold. You may not be aware that some products have a period after opening symbol on its packaging. The symbol is an open jar with a number and the letter “M” on the jar. This informs the consumer of the number of months after opening during which the product should be fully used or replaced.
Shelf-life refers to the period of time an unopened product maintains its integrity.
The PAO number indicates the number of months within which an opened product should be used or replaced. To further clarify, once a product is opened and used, its integrity can be affected by such things as exposure to environmental conditions or from contact with the user’s skin.
We appreciate the opportunity to respond to your question, and sincerely hope we were able to be of assistance. You are valued as our consumer and we hope you will continue to use and enjoy our products with confidence and satisfaction.
Part 2: The beautypedia.com site mentions the poor packaging choice of a clear bottle due to the ingredients being light sensitive. I've been sneaking this bottle out of the box daily which is quite a pain.
Here is the link to that review: http://www.paulaschoice.com/beautypedia-skin-care-reviews/by-brand/clinique/Turnaround/_/Turnaround-Revitalizing-Lotion
Can you comment on the effect of light exposure for this ingredient list:
