Sun cream 2 years in a row?

    Not sure if this is the right forum.
    Would anyone know if you can use sun cream for 2 years in a row? I.e the package has the use within 12 months of opening picture on it, but is that just a guideline? Would it have reduced protection or would it have next to no protection? I use factor 50, if it were to only reduce to about the equivalent of a factor 40 for example, I wouldn't mind continuing to use it, but if it were to have reduced to say factor 10 or something I wouldn't.
    I barely touched last years sun cream and it seems like such a waste to throw them out, but if they aren't going to be effective I would buy new ones.
