Article Rating

Sharing monthly skincare empties is a great way to manage your skincare stash and as you already know, every product comes with its PAO (period after opening) and/or expiry dates. It’s important to always do an inventory of your stash; pick out products nearing these dates so you can finish them off and know what you have left, unopened!


If you’re from my Instagram, you know I’m trying to finish up my current stash before their PAO. Although I’m not done emptying all of them, this post covers products I finished in September; featuring brands like COSRX, TIA’M, PURITO and ROVECTIN. I’ll share a brief overview of each product, price points, where to shop and my conclusions after use.
