A Customer Just Exposed A Dirty Trick That All Retailers Play On Us…


It’s safe to say we all love a good bargain, and stores like TJ Maxx can be a gold mine for affordable beauty products. But you have to know what you’re buying because the side effects might be devastating and costly.

Beauty blogger Canon Ryder warns us that many third-party discount retailers sell items that are extremely expired in his recent viral TikTok post.

Ryder also shares a way to double-check how new the product you’re buying actually is. In his video, Ryder explains that you’ll need the product’s batch number to find out when it was made by looking it up on the website m.checkcosmetic.net.

In his TikTok, he looks up the manufacture date of an Olay moisturizer sold at TJ Maxx using the batch code found on the bottom of the product and he finds it was allegedly manufactured in January 2011 – nearly a decade ago!

Ryder warns, “Don’t get scammed!” Of course, not all beauty products sold at third-party retailers, like TJ Maxx, are expired, but you need to know what you’re putting on your face. Saving money is great, but not if your skin suffers because of it.

With this, many users were disturbed by this beauty products scam:

“That should be illegal,” one person said.

“I’m not even into cosmetics like that but this is so interesting,” another added.

“I just sent this to like 10 people omg,” a third commented.

According to TJ Maxx’s website, the company acquires products through several channels, including department store cancellations, manufacturer overproduction, and overstock at the end of each season. It’s unclear why the store would be selling beauty products that are almost a decade old.

Of course, not every beauty product at third-party retailers is going to be expired. However, unless you want to spend hours looking up manufacturer dates, you’re better off shopping sales from major retailers.

Ryder educates consumers about beauty product expiration dates. He warns that you need to beware of duplicitous retailers who do not really care about the customer’s wellbeing.
