Let’s try with Clinique Blended Face Powder and Brush #02 Transparency 2 (VF) which I bought in August 2011. The batch code stated is BA0. Clinique users might know how to read the code. But what if you can’t remember which is which?
First step. Go to http://checkcosmetic.net/.
Second step. Select the brand which in this case is Clinique and key in the batch code in the cosmetic calculator located on the top left side of the page. Click Calculate!
Finally. The result is shown at the same panel. There you go 🙂
By far Clinique batch code is the easiest to read off. I still can’t read Clarins batch code yet. I will try to remember the sequence as most of my skin care is Clarins afterall 🙂
