  • you can... but it just may not be as effective. The chemical bound starts to break down after a period of time, causing a decrease in UV protection.

  • You can use it but it won't work. I'd toss it and buy a new tube.

  • Now thats too old. Mine expired in 2010, and its okay, but I wouldn't risk using yours.

  • It won't hurt you but it won't protect you from the sun either.
