One thing I find really irritating is just how much product is left in a tube when you can no longer manage to squeeze even the tiniest bit out! It happened this morning with my moisturiser, but luckily I have learnt to be well prepared!
I always wash up empty pots that beauty products or similar items come in. Not only do they come in handy for holidays where “decant, decant, decant” are my key words for hand baggage only flights, but they also come in handy for times like this, when I cut the tube open and need to preserve the remaining product.
I use an orange stick to make sure I get all the product out, you could of course, use your finger if the tube is big enough.
This particular moisturiser really spreads easily and you don’t need a lot at all, so I reckon I have got a weeks worth of product out of a tube that would have otherwise been thrown away. Whether it’s a tube of fake tan, eye cream, body scrub etc, if it comes in a tube, I cut it open to make sure I don’t miss a drop!
Make sure you wash up and keep all empty pots in future, you never know when you might need one!
Do you throw your products out when you can’t get any more out of the tube?
