I used to live for Bath and Body Works semi-annual sales. I still go in every now and then when I receive free item coupons, but not as much anymore. Admittedly, I have not purchased anything since their 2016 Summer semi annual sale, I have that many products of theirs (still unopened) ! Trust me, I have absolutely nothing against BBW, but I am slowly, but surely, trying to switch as many of my body care products to most organic with the exception of deodorant.
So, how to find bath and body works expiation date? It’s actually quite simple and is listed on the bottom of your lotion or body spray right now. Bath & Body Works print their manufacturing dates in code, but don’t worry, view the pictures below and I’ll explain better.
According to BBW response to an old Facebook post, unopened body care products have a two-year shelf life after the manufacture date. Take a look below:
- First #: Year (ex: 5 = 2015)
- Next three #’s: Day (ex: 254 = 254th day of the year)
So this lotion is good for two years after Sep 11, 2015 so it’ll be expiring soon.
Now, you know the method for deciphering the approximate expiration date of BBW products the next time you go shopping !This post may contain affiliate links.
