Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

Ha! Iโ€™ll be brave enough next time ๐Ÿ˜‰ @Shosh85

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

That's always my reply as well

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

Nice finds @scott1201! I would have a hard time resisting that PTR mask! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

If they had the pumpkin mask it wouldโ€™ve been in my cart STAT, @bakeamuffin ๐ŸŽƒ

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

Oh wow these stores are really upping there game @scott1201! I'm vary of how old some of the products are, especially with skincare? Does anyone check or had a bad experience before?

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

@Aaliaa@scott1201@bakeamuffin

Any skincare item should have a lot code; while you may not be able to decipher it on your own, checkcosmetic dot net is a good resource for how to read many manufacturers' codes to get a date of manufacture. If they don't have that particular brand, you can always contact the manufacturer with the code for more info. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

I've tried that @RGbrown. How accurate have you found the website though? Its a great idea though, I need to remember to use it more especially while at stores like Winners. Thanks!

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

@AaliaaUnidentified

I've never actually contacted a company to verify a lot code I've deciphered on checkcosmetic, so I can't really answer the accuracy question. I'd assume they are, but I suppose I can't really say for sure.

 

They don't have everyone; algenist and Juice Beauty are two I can think of right off the bat. And philosophy uses a 4 digit code that checkcosmetic claims is invalid (my guess here is that philosophy used to use a different format, but then swapped to the 4 digit codes (perhaps when Coty bought them?) and they haven't updated the site. In any case, philosophy is easy to decipher on your own...the first number is the year of manufacture and the last three are the day of the year. 7113 for example would be the 113th day, or mid-April, of 2017.)

 

Once you start paying attention to lot codes, you'll probably be able to pick up at least a tidbit of info for many, even without checking it out fully. The year will usually be the quickest and easiest to locate, and anyone using a format like philosophy will be especially easy to figure out ๐Ÿ˜Š Some makers make it much more difficult though, where letters are used instead of numbers, or the numbers just don't seem to line up with anything that makes sense without knowing the key. 

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

Great tip @RGbrown! Thanks ๐Ÿ˜„

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

Great point, @Aaliaa. I always check sheet masks but Iโ€™m not sure if I know where to check on other skincare. Is it on the box typically?

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

I don't believe so @scott1201. From what I understand skincare never does have expiry dates on them so there is no way of knowing when it was produced and therefore when it should be used by.

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

The sheet masks I grabbed expire in 2020 according to the boxes, really good point to be aware of that @Aaliaa!

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

I like that sheet masks have expiry dates on them @bakeamuffin. I wish Skincare and Makeup did too. I know they have a 'use in once opened' but I expect ingredients go bad and deteriorate in their efficacy even when unopened. Thats what I like about a lot of the Korean/Japanese skincare I've bought recently is they have expiry dates on them.

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

@Aaliaa yes!! I noticed that almost all of the Korean masks @itsfi sent me had either expiration dates on them, or date it was manufactured. I wish it was across the board for skincare and makeup though.

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

Little TJ Maxx haul. I purposely skipped the makeup section because I get too easily sucked in, haha! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Thought this would be a fun foot mask to try out! - Iโ€™ve been curious to try the Boscia Baby Foot one, but always hesitant forking over the $20 for it, haha! ๐Ÿคช  ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‰EC63D677-3A77-4111-8D15-ACD04A6BD8B0.jpeg

 

The Blueberry Soap (smells soo good ๐Ÿ˜‹) and the 5 pack Azure Eye Masks were both $3 each. The Creme Shop 5 pack was $4.99 and the 2 pair of Foot Masks were $3.99

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

I saw that you got the rose water masks and I had to go back and grab a box to try too ๐Ÿ˜‚ Monkey see monkey do ๐Ÿ’ I hope the foot mask works well ๐Ÿ˜„ I bet that blueberry soap smells really yummy ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜„ Enjoy everything @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜„

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

@bakeamuffin I really liked the rose one! ๐ŸŒน Iโ€™ll be interested to hear what you think! ๐Ÿ‘

 

The Blueberry soap smells delicious! โ€“ I actually buy all my bath soap at TJ Maxx now! There is just so much variety and such good prices!

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

Great finds @Shosh85! You got them all at such a deal! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

Thanks, @itsfi! I think Iโ€™m most excited for the blueberry soap! ๐Ÿค—

Re: TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners Hauls & Finds!

I went to Winners in Calgary this morning and was really happy with the selection!! They had Creme shop masks, high end perfumes, Impressions vanity mirrors, KVD, Armani, ABH, Milk, and more (photosnin comments)! Iโ€™ll have to go back more regularly because they had some good stuff ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ› Today I grabbed the Touch XL & touch up makeup mirror set itโ€™s originally $78 USD and was marked down from $45cad to $30 so I couldnโ€™t resist! I also got a couple of face mask sets for $7.993B1685E9-C901-4EC9-AE2B-C60A0A9ADA4F.jpeg
