Hi guys,

I recently purchased Zia's Citrus Night Time Reversal, and the Fresh Papaya Enzyme Peel. Both are 100% organic, no preservatives, and can go over pretty fast.

I was using them for a couple of days, and realized that a little goes a loooonnnnnnggg way. Usually a good thing, but I don't want to waste any by having to throw it out because it turned.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! I was thinking about possible refridgeration? hmm

A friend has tried the Imminence products, and they go very fast. Basically rot! I guess refrigeration is the only way to go, but even then there is a shelf life. I'd buy the products in the smallest sizes possible!

Yes, Zia does have sample sizes, but I just hate the thought of spending so much in shipping when the order total is so low Sad

Guess I will have to see how fast these turn, and compare the difference of wasting vs shipping Rolling Eyes

I think refrigeration is a good idea. I used to keep some Aubrey Organics masks in the fridge because I found they went bad pretty quickly. It won't do anything to the product and it can be very "refreshing" when applying the mask straight from the fridge. lol Wink

Thanx guys, I will definately try that! Very Happy I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't do anything harmful, like make the pruduct less effective?

Or you could add your own non-paraben preservative to it?

Buy in smallest size even if larger size is cheaper but it's no worth if you must trow it away when it's expired.
