DISCONTINUED PRODUCTS (click on this line to see the whole post)

The answer you entered to the math problem is incorrect.

Recently a friend was looking for something Avon hadn't sold for a while. I let her know that she could find the product on www.desley.net
After she received the product, she wondered about the expiration date printed on the package. In all fairness, I'm including a lot of links for people to read about expiration dates. The dates solely indicate freshness, and are used by manufacturers to convey when the product is at its peak.

How long cosmetics are fresh?
Shelf life of cosmetics depends on period after opening and production date.

period after openingPeriod after opening (PAO). Some cosmetics should be used within a specified period of time after opening due to oxidation and microbiological factors. Their packaging has a drawing of an open jar, inside it there is a number representing the number of months. In this example it is 6 months of use after opening.

Production date. Unused cosmetics also lose their freshness and become dry. According to EU law, the manufacturer has to put the expiration date only on cosmetics whose shelf life is less than 30 months. The most common periods of suitability for use from date of manufacture:

Perfumes with alcohol - about 5 years
Skin care - minimum 3 years
Makeup - from 3 years (mascara) to more than 5 years (powders)
Expiration dates may vary depending on the manufacturer.

When buying online, sometimes you see a picture of what you are ordering and sometimes not. You should be able to ask for a picture if one is not displayed. Once you get the item, try it right away and make sure that you aren't leaving the item out in the sun or in a hot car. If the item is sealed in the original package which is intact and not "all beat up" you should be safe. Online sellers who refuse to take returns should be a red flag! Why won't they take returns??

The people who are advertising on www.icollectavon.net have usually been screened and are long time associates of the site. Most sellers are current or former Avon Reps who have sold Avon for decades and have (new old stock) on hand. I think they all take returns. If they say the item has never been openned and carefully stored, I think you can trust them.

I've been associated with this site since the beginning back in the AOL Want to Buy Ads and after Rhonda set up up the first website in 1996. I have never had a product returned for a quality issue, this includes perfume oils from the 1960's but it's all about HOW THINGS ARE STORED! 24 years is a pretty good track record!
