So I’ve heard enough about not buying a particular moisturizer that’s in jar or laziness on using a spatula to scoop moisturizer out from the jar and even laziness on transferring some moisturizer to a small jar like what I mentioned in this post. With a little of brain tweak I figured out a simple yet useful tips for you to overcome this problem. I personally have no problem with skin care in a jar. I’m a hygiene freak so I like to transfer to a smaller jar, wash the small jar when the content finishes, refill with some moisturizer and repeat the process.
For those that don’t prefer jar and you’ve always been avoiding purchasing them, this simple tip might be able to help you to get the moisturizer that everyone’s been raving!
All you need is just a vacuum essence bottle that you can purchase from Daiso for RM5. And of course that jar of moisturizer / cream. In my case I only have Clarins HydraQuench Cream-Gel. Do bear in mind mine is in gel form which is more watery than cream ya.
I chose this type of bottle because the base inside the bottle will push all the moisturizer up till the top. And it’s transparent and refillable too. Clarins Shaping Facial Lift uses the same type of vacuum bottle. You can read about it in this tips post 🙂
First thing first. You need to use a long stick to push the base down. I used my makeup brush holder in the below picture. I thought of using a pen but pen are more dirtier and my brushes are all clean. A simple sanitize wipe will do 🙂
At first I only want to transfer a small amount of moisturizer in…just in case this doesn’t work lol. But because I pushed the base all the way to the bottom, there’s no way I could pump the content out. Epic fail LOL.
So I have no choice but to go all the way. All I can do is to pray hard that this better works or else I’m doomed :P.
The bottle neck is so small that I feel like I’m feeding a toddler baby food everytime I scoop in moisturizer with a spatula haha.
Okay…fill the bottle up till the top where the nozzle inside the bottle are at.
And voilà! It works just the way I wanted it to be. My moisturizer pumps out perfectly.
Now tell me, are you game enough to try this tips? 😉
