Tips: Transferring Your Moisturizer to a Pump Bottle

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 🙂

Tips – How to get the most from your serum bottle


Normally we just throw away the empty bottle whenever it’s not pump-able anymore. We tried to unscrew the top cap but it doesn’t seems to work. I did the same for the first two bottle of Clarins Shaping Facial Lift as the bottle is vacuum type. Then on my third bottle I started to get adventurous. Since I’m tossing it away there’s no harm with force opening the cap. I mean what have I got to lose right?

Alright. It’s just 3-simple steps and you get the hidden serum out in no time!

First, make a small gap by tilting the cap to a side.

Tips: Depotting Leftover Skincare – Cut or throw?

How many of you throw away that tube / bottle / jar of skincare which you no longer could squeeze the last bit out?

I don’t.

If you’re spending a lot on skincare like I do (recently), then you should think twice before throwing that empty bottle away. Let me share with you what I normally do when the tube is no longer squeezable.

Here you have a tube where you’ve tried banging the content downward over and over again and finally it no longer works. You tried squeezing from top to bottom but nothing came out the nozzle. What do you do?


For tubes like these, I don’t keep. I’d cut it in 3 portions depending how huge or long the tube is. First cut is on the toppest part, then another cut after the middle line. What I do with the upper portion tube is that I’d use my a spatula to extract the content out and repeat the same process with the bottom portion where most of the content is at.
