When I was using Skinceuticals SPF30 Ultimate UV Defense, I had this major problem because I could never get the last bit of the cream since it was impossible to squeeze all the sunblock from the tube as the opening was too hard. It was not until my second tube that I figured out that since the tube is made of plastic, I could just cut the tube up and dig out the cream! I thought I was doing something abnormal until I realized recently that other gals are also doing it. Like The Muse who recently sawed open her Urban Decay Potion Primer!
But unlike The Muse, I’m less dramatic. I cut open my tube with a pair of clean scissors.
Here’s how my Vichy Capital Soleil looks after being cut up. As you can see, there are plenty of cream sitting at the bottom. Cream that I can never squeeze out and hence would go to waste! I guess I can dig out the cream to put in another container but I’m too lazy to do that. So I just wrap the whole tube in a plastic bag until I finish up what’s left.
So have you done this before? If not, how do you squeeze out the last bit from your tube of sunblock or any other beauty creams?
