There are still products who do not state an expiry date. Clarins has the most confusing cryptic numbering system on their tubes which relate to date of manufacture and country.
As for items which say 06/07, they are fine until the END of that month but I personally wouldnt hesitate to use them a bit longer. Also try to keep your fingers out of jars by using a spatula to introduce less bacteria.
Whoever said money can't buy happiness simply didn't know where to go shopping
