Don’t toss them in the trash just to re-buy them. Instead de-pot them in 3 simple steps.
All you need is a sanitary workspace, clean cosmetic spatula and an empty container. The spatula and containers can be easily purchased by the pack for a dollar or two at either a drugstore, beauty supply, craft store, online or even the 0.99 cent store.
Additionally, You can save even more money by repurposing a cosmetic container from a previous purchase with a secure cover or by saving a old sample container from a cosmetic counter. If reusing a container, clean, dry and sanitize it before using. To sanitize your container, wash and dry it with a clean paper towel, then spray it with alcohol of 70% vol or higher and let it air dry.
Gather the products you need to perform the task: a cosmetic spatula and clean sanitized container with a secure lid. You can repurpose an old container also. Be sure to sanitize it with alcohol at least 70% volume or higher.
Finally, use the spatula to transfer the product into the new container.
