Their packaging has a drawing of an open jar, inside it, there is a number representing the number of months. In this example, it is 6 months of use after opening.

Perfumes with alcohol- about 5 years
Skin care cosmetics- minimum 3 years
Makeup cosmetics- from 3 years (mascara) to more than 5 years (powders)

The shelf life may vary depending on the manufacturer.
