MONEY SAVING TIP: Body Lotion Bottles!

Hey :)

Does anyone else always end up throwing away body lotion bottles knowing full well there's more product left but being unable to squeeze the last bit out? Frustrating isn't it! Well here's a handy solution!

Firstly, wash out an old body lotion tub (you know the ones that the Body Shop Body Butters come in?) that'd be perfect. I used a tub that contained Sanctuary Body Butter that I'd used up. Then dry it thoroughly.

Then carefully slice the top of your body lotion bottle off using a sharp knife and chopping board!
Look how much product was left inside!!

Next, use a spatula to scrape out all the left over product and place in your tub!

I did this with two of my 'empty' Dove Summer Glow Lotions and just look how much product I was left with! I was just about to buy another one and now won't need to for at least a couple of weeks! I'm so happy with this!

Hope this was helpful! Have a lovely weekend! xxx


  1. I always cut my products open as well I never thought to store them in a tub tho :) Thats a good idea! xxx Thank you xxx

  2. I do this with Palmers Cocoa Butter!! There's always so much more left than you'd think!
