I've got mini pots of Sudocrem which I think we're foisted on me by the bounty woman. I've been using them solely on my own post natal acne ridden face but just noticed an expiry of May 15th on it. Would you still use it?

Of course! What could possibly be the issue?

Yes, no question

goodness yes, I've eaten food more out of date than that

Just thought maybe it would have lost its potency or something!

Thank you I'll continue to slather myself and scare the bejesus out of DH when I climb into bed grin

I chucked our last pot when it was about a year past its date.

It has a date? I haven't bought any since dd was a toddler and she's now a teen. I used it the other day, nothing's dropped off!

I don't think there's anything wrong with using it even if it is out of date. It just means the "treatment" of it wont be at it's best. It'll just be weaker than normal. Sudocrem is quite strong anyway.

My first thought when I saw the title was "Which year?"(gives away own erratic storage of product in question). blush

I used to put Sudocreme on my spots as a teenager and the tub I used was in the bathroom of my family home and had been bought for baby's bum purposes. My brother (the baby in question) was about 11 at the time.

I had no idea about expiry dates and it still worked, so I think you'll be fine!

My mum still has -and uses- a tub of boots own brand nappy cream we had as children. I'm 43 and my sister is 38. I think it'll be ok grin.
