Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Storing Your Samples

7.11.2010

ways to store your samples after opening

Two days ago I was in Ikea and I saw this bag of clips (for storing food etc) at the Ikea Cafe (the one on Lower Ground opposite the cashiers). It gave me an idea to clip on my samples as I can't finish the whole sachet within one application. A bag of Ikea clips cost rm12++ and there's 20 small clips and 10 big clips in it. The smaller clips can clip the edge of your sample and the bigger one can clip the entire top part of it. The clips pretty tight so don't worry about it being flimsy. Samples oxides fast when it's open and left open. You will need to store it properly or the cream/liquid will turn brown or not as effective anymore after being expose to air and bacteria for some time.

A more non-cost way is just to fold your samples (the top) and put in the fridge. Well rm12++ for 30 clips is great for me coz it's air tight clips.
