Today’s Public Service Announcement is a simple one. But I spent a long part of my product-consuming life not knowing about this trick. And now that I know it, it seems super obvious: even when you’ve squeezed what you think must be the very last precious drop from your tube of product, there is definitely more in there. And all you have to do to get it out is to cut open the tube. If you don’t do that, you’re wasting product.
How many uses are left will depend on the product—something like eye cream or concealer, of which you only need to use the tiniest amount, might have a whole week’s worth of product still in there. An empty tube of foundation or tinted moisturizer might have several more days worth in it. A moisturizer might have two days, which isn’t much, but isn’t nothing, especially when it’s your fave.
