Recycle your old product packaging and give them a new lease of life.
#1 Mobile phone holders
Clean out empty lotion bottles and cut it to make a nifty holder for your mobile phone when you’re charging it. No more worrying if your charging cable is long enough to reach the bedside table.
#2 Solid perfume
Solid perfumes fits perfectly into your purse, and are easy to use for quick fragrance touch-ups. Mix a ratio of two parts oil to one part beeswax, along with your favourite scent or essential oil. Melt the mixture and pour it into an old lip gloss tint to create your own solid perfume.
#3 Tinted lip gloss
Got some leftover lipstick you just can’t get out of the tube? Dig it out with a spatula and mix it with petroleum jelly to create your own sheer lip balm colour.
#4 Nail polish remover
Remove nail polish without fussing over cotton pads. Just use an empty glass jar (make sure it’s glass as nail polish removers might react chemically with some types of plastics and melt it away), cut a small piece of sponge so that it fits into the jar, and then soak the sponge with acetone. To use, simply stick your nail into the jar, twist it a few times and voila! Clean nail. Make sure you keep them capped tightly to prevent the acetone from evaporating.
#5 Make-up brush holders
These sturdy glass containers make excellent receptacles for your make-up brushes, eye liners and other beauty knick-knacks.
It’s such a waste to throw away beautiful lipsticks, but some of them can actually be repurposed into jewellery! Part of the Yves Saint Laurent lipstick can actually be removed and worn as a ring.
