DIY: Lip Gloss Saver

Article By Priya

Are you running out of your favorite Lip Gloss? Need a new one? Or your Lip Gloss has dried up sitting in your drawer? Well, I have a solution for you to get even the last drop of Lip Gloss out of the bottle! Here are the things you will need:

  1. Half Bowl/Mug Water (Microwave Safe)
  2. Clean Lens Case
  3. Old/ Dry Lip Gloss

Let’s Start!
STEP 1: Put your half filled Bowl/Mug in the Microwave for 60 seconds.  We need hot water neither boiling water nor luke warm water.

STEP 2: Place your old Lip Gloss into Bowl filled with hot water and let it rest there for a good 15-20 minutes. What this step will do is loosen up the Lip Gloss formulation and will make it leave the sides of the bottle to which it is stuck. The consistency will be flow –y again like before! Do not over do it, as adverse temperature can spoil the formulation.

STEP 3: Clean & sanitize your Lens Case or buy a new one from the Optical Store. Remove the rubber stopper carefully at the mouth of the Lip Gloss bottle (Optional) for easy transfer of the Gloss into the Lens Case. Pour the Gloss into the Lens Case. Tighten the Lens Case’s lids and store it with your other lip products. And we are done!

So next time you don’t have to go to the Market to get a new Lip Gloss, you still have some time to finish the old one! And you can store 2 different Lip Gloss in one Lens Case. I would recommend you use a clean lip brush to apply the Gloss for sanitary reasons! Hope this DIY would be useful to all!
