Most moisturisers don't come in convenient little containers, and if they do, you'll likely pay a premium for the privilege. Use a contact lense case instead. Judy wrote into the Parent Hacks blog because she didn't like carrying bulky container of moisturiser, but the cold winter weather made her son's face really dry. Her solution?
I found an unused contact lens case and realised it was perfect for carrying the lotion. It won't leak, and if you want, the two sides are labelled so you could put two different items in it (i.e. lotion and Vaseline). They're easy to clean, and if you're a contact wearer, you'll have a ton kicking around the house.
At first consideration it would seem a contact case wouldn't be large enough to hold an appreciable amount of anything, but upon further inspection of the multitude of contact cases scattered around my house my opinion changed. The majority of cases were deep enough to easily hold more moisturiser than most people could reasonably use before being back home and able to fill it up again. Practical way to reuse a contact case and save space or repurposing gone too far?Photo by L. Marie.
