I see Skinceuticals samples on eBay all the time, and I was wondering if anyone has experience either buying these or with Skinceuticals sample/travel sizes in general- and if they mark a date to sell/buy by or date the product is no longer considered fresh? I know Skinceuticals won't even ship after Wednesday because they don't want their product stuck in hot mailing facilities, and we all know how fragile Vit. C serums are. I would love to "try before I buy," and spend $150, but not if I'm getting a product that has already gone bad.

I cant recall the vendor I bought from but the SC CEF samples i received were already an orange-red color in the vials when I opened the package immediately after I got them. No expiry date was on the package or the vials themselves.

I asked Skinceuticals directly about this color change and was told that the product is still good "unless it has turned a brick red color". And that was when I started to make my own serums. Rolling Eyes

It sounds like you were skeptical of the advice that you got.

Are you often skeptical of advice from customer service agents? If so, why?
