Tipsy Tuesday (#139)

Because I have this friend who knows all about expired sunscreen...

Tip #139

Clean out your summer sunscreen stash, but don't throw away the bottles that will expire before next season...

Did you know that expired lotion makes excellent shaving cream? The thick formula will create a barrier that will prevent razor burn. and you'll get some extra moisturizing while you are at it!

**Alright now, I'm talking tips, head over to see what Impulsive and Shawn are talking about on Talk to us Tuesday!*

You totally called me for my expired sunscreen! Good to know it won't go to complete waste! I'll use it as a shaving cream! You're so smart!

I recently go rid of our old sunscreen. WE have a tendency to keep it around, but then it gets all yucky.

Excellent tip - I always end up with too much conditioner and I've been told I can use it as shaving cream - but I didn't know about the sunscreen! Makes sense!!

I leanred my lesson on expired sunscreen the hard way. Living in Florida I throw it away at the end of October and purchase new sometime in Feb-March. It's still sunny here but not as harmful...I think.

I don't use anything to shave with but my girls do, I will so be giving them the cabinet full of sunscreens!

Great tips, thanks for linking up!
