It always surprises me how much is left in the bottles of my products, particularly creams.
I really hate that I paid so much money for it and I would just leave it in the bottle to be discarded!! It is like throwing money away, literally.
I usually end up having to slice open the top of the bottle and use the remainder that won’t come out no matter how hard I squeeze the bottle.
I keep it clipped with a big binder clip if the area I cut is curved and needs to be clipped closed, or if it is an open bottle that can’t be clipped, I put a plastic bag over it to keep it from coagulating and drying out (yes it has happened)!
For shampoo (I buy the super fancy John Masters Organics), I add a little water to get all of the remaining shampoo out and even half way through, I dilute it with water because I find I use way too much in the shower without needing to.
I find that in the Paula’s Choice cleanser, I get at least another 2 weeks of face washing (twice a day) out of it, and in my SkinFix Hand Cream which I use to keep my eczema at bay, I have at least 3 more after-showers worth of body lotion.
