I've previously mentioned having amassed a vast amount of beauty and skincare products through beauty boxes, gifts, freebies and bargain buys I'd be mad to've missed. - Yep, it's an addiction!
Today I started rooting through some of the half used items I have and was shocked to find I had 3 15ml sample tubes of Lulu Timebomb Flashback Night Cream...all open!!!
I've salvaged a spray bottle from my empties and decided to decant the tubes into it for two reasons: 1) to save space in my skincare box, and 2) So I can see just how much I have left before starting something new.
If you haven't already started snipping the tubes when you think they are empty, it's well worth doing - particularly with thicker creams as they do tend to stick to the sides. You can get days more use from the product clinging to the packaging - either using a finger (be careful of any rough edges though) or a cotton bud. I just use a bulldog clip to seal the tube closed again after use.
Feel free to share your tips in the comments section below.
I've also re-used my Yankee Candle jars as hair clip / bobble storage, cotton wool balls / cotton buds, make up brushes and to pour Radox bath salts into as they'll look much more luxurious and expensive in a jar.
Happy recycling everyone! xxx
