A Quick Beauty Tip – Beauty Tip – How to Get the Last Few Drops of Product Out of Tubes of Hair Gel, Acne Medication, Body Lotion, etc.

Published in: Beauty Tips


Yet another reason to keep a small pair of scissors in your bathroom – they are handy for getting out the last remnants of product out of tubes or hair gel, acne medication, body lotion or whatever you’ve got in a tube that’s down to it’s last droplets. I’ve found this trick handy during moments of sheer product desperation. And truth be told, I use this trick a lot ‘cause I’m cheap and hate throwing out the last few bits of anything I paid good money for, ha ha ha.

So this morning after I got out of the shower I reached for my tube of Bath & Body Works Cherry Blossom Body Cream this morning I realized that I was all out. This product comes in a tube, not a bottle, so I first tried the old trick where you shake the tube, hit the cap against you palm a few times and then squeeze the remainder of the product out. After that didn’t work any more, I grabbed the scissors from the medicine cabinet, cut off the tube in two, and used my fingers to dig into the cap area where the last of the lotion remained. And then those last bits of lotion were mine!

The official vacation count down is on! I’m going to Hawaii in t-minus 28 days. I can’t wait to surf in warm water and to hang out with my family! What are your vacation plans for the summer?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
