For years I was frustrated when I couldn't get the last of the face cream or lotion out of its package while seeing there was more inside. Finally, I thought to cut the package open and was amazed how much product was left. Try this neat trick: Cut little slits into the sides of just one of the plastic tube halves, and then you can reassemble the halves. Now you can neatly keep reusing the (now two-piece) tube while using the remaining 5-10% of the contents. This trick works for toothpaste and shampoo too. You'll be amazed when you get another week or two of paste/lotion/shampoo to use. It's in there!
