Packaging Woes and Recycling!
I bought the Revlon Age Defying Face Illuminator (right in picture) last year thinking it would make a nice liquid highlight. The product was nice but I rarely reached for it because the dispenser was a brush tip connected to a squeeze tube. The idea behind the brush was that it would serve as an applicator to be applied directly to your face. This would be unsanitary and messy, streaking the base I already applied as well as contaminating the dispenser. So this highlight was mostly untouched aside from when I squeezed out some product to be used in my homemade tinted moisturizer.
The other day I was rummaging through my stash and I realized that the product would expire next year and I had probably used it on less than ten occasions. I cut a corner off of the tube and began to pour the contents into an empty Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer bottle. I keep the contained of empty products to be reused so in a way I save some plastic and do not need to spend more money buying containers.
Have you ever been super annoyed by a product's packaging and just had to depot it?! Share your tips and tricks in the comments :)
On a completely unrelated note, I got another sample sheet of Maybelline Fit Me foundation in the mail from Walmart :) I guess I signed up for
