How to: Recycle BareMinerals Makeup Containers

Another reason why I love BareMinerals: you can recycle the makeup containers. After you finished with any of their products, never throw away the containers.

Here is how to do it:

1. After you have no makeup left, remove the divider. Look closely to the edge, you will notice that you can remove the divider with either your finger nail or a butter knife.

2. Throw away the divider and clean out the container.

3. Clean out the container with dish soap, or throw it in the silverware tray in the dishwasher.

Why is this awesome?
  • Traveling purposes: no more paying to check your luggage. No more lugging around a huge bottle of something, if you are just going away for a few days.
  • You can put your favorite hair gel, shampoo, conditioner, makeup remover, lotion, etc. into these containers.
  • They are small enough to put in your carry-on luggage and pass through security.
  • No more buying "travel size", or travel containers that sometimes explode when they are packed too tightly.
  • Since the lid is screw on, you never need to worry about any leaking.
  • There are other uses, like for make shift pill or earring box.
