Beauty products from all over the world have now become accessible, thanks to the growth of online shopping.
The flip side of this accessibility though? The spread of expired beauty products, and worse: fake ones, too.
On “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho,” three women shared how fake and expired beauty products ruined their skin.
There’s Genevieve, 31, who experienced intense red spotting in her underarms after applying a whitening product she bought from an online shop.
“Natakot ako kasi akala ko baka mag-spread siya sa lahat ng katawan ko. Nagpatingin na ako sa doctor kasi bumaba na siya sa may breast area ko,” she said.
According to the dermatologist, the cream she used was too strong for her skin type, resulting in an irritation.
Physical stores are also not safe from fake and expired cosmetics.
