How to reuse your pump dispenser

I’ve recently used up all of my Olay moisturizer which I bought way back while I was in Singapore. Prior to living in Rome, I’ve been using this for several years now and I like it as it has a light texture.

The interesting thing about this brand is that the name changes depending on the country that you are at. In Asia, it’s called Olay but while in Italy, it’s known as Olaz instead. I wonder why the change.

By the way, I wanted to show you a picture of Danielle Graham,  the ambassador for Olay (I suppose) who was on the pack when I bought my moisturizer. I think whoever took this picture needs to go back to photography school … she looks like a creepy psychopath! Which is such an injustice as she doesn’t look like that normally

But coming back to my pump dispenser, knowing that there was still a little bit of moisturizer left in the bottle, and me being a cheapo, my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to open it up to scrape up the last bits and also to see how it functions :

Wow, I’m definitely not throwing it away! This will be great for travelling, no?

  1. THE FROG. I KNOW THAT FROG. *waves*

    Anyway, I like to re-use plastic bottles like that too! 🙂 It’s such a waste to throw it away. I use small bottles like that to contain my moisturizer, just to keep some in my bag when I go to work, etc. 🙂

    1. Yup! It’s a frugal way of saving a bit of money instead of always buying one of those mini plastic travel bottles. For me, I tend to break them or lose them in the end, so it was such a heartbreak!

  2. High five Marina 🙂 Whenever possible, I reuse small bottles or useful ones like u have for travelling purpose. That greeny frog is so cute! It reminds me of a campaign (courtesy or litter free campaign) in Singapore many years ago and they used a green frog like yours as the mascot.
