At Habitual Skin, we're dedicated to ensuring that each of our products not only meets but exceeds your skincare expectations. Understanding the shelf life and optimal usage of our products is key to maximising their benefits. Like the best ingredients in your kitchen, the fresher your skincare, the more effective it is. Here's how to make the most of our range:
- Moisturisers: Reach their peak performance within 12 months of opening. We formulate them to maintain their hydrating qualities throughout this time.
- Amber Bottle Serums: These are specially crafted with sensitive active ingredients, best used within the first 6 months for maximum efficacy, but they remain effective for up to 12 months.
- Clear Bottle Serums & Creams: Designed for a longer shelf life, these are ideal to use within 12 months, and safe for up to 24 months, offering you sustained skincare benefits.
- SPF Products: For the best sun protection, we advise using them within 12 months, as their protective properties are most potent during this period.
- Cleansers and Toners: Essential to your daily routine, they are effective for 12 months post-opening, ensuring your skin receives consistent care.
Be sure to look for the “period after opening” symbol on our packaging for product-specific information. Proper storage is crucial — keep these products in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight to preserve their quality and effectiveness.

- Brightening Gel Cleanser: Massage onto damp face, and rinse off.
