Fun with Hershey's Chocolate Almond Spread from Crowdtap

I received a container of  Hershey's Spreads (Chocolate with Almond) from Crowdtap

We had a small family gathering of 7 people. We had  Bartlett pears and Red Delicious apples with the Chocolate Almond Spread.

We also made Chocolate-Almond Banana Frozen Puddings. Yum! We had six bananas, about half of the jar of spread, and a snack size of chocolate pudding in the blender.

It was messy, but quite yummy. Hey.... I'm not a food stylist... I'm a DIY-er.

Needless to say, the Chocolate Almond Spread was great, down to the finger-licking leftover bits!

DIY BB Cream from Samples and a Repurposed Container

I was doing some cleaning and organizing this weekend in my makeup area, and I found a BB Cream Sample from Pond's Luminous Finish BB Cream (Light)Urban Decay's Naked Skin Beauty Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 20 and Boscia's BB Cream Light Broad Spectrum SPF27. I also had a partial tube of Garnier BB Cream Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector

I also just finished a tube of Philosophy's Miracle Worker Dark Spot Corrector. I had a "brainstorm" moment.... instead of throwing out the used up (airtight) tube, how about I repurpose it for my BB creams?

I used a pair of vise grips, and grasped down on the bottle where the top joins the rest of the bottle.

I applied just enough pressure to remove the applicator (top) off the bottle.

Then, I used a pair of tweezers to depress the floating bottom of the tube, and I cleaned out the tube.

I depressed the nozzle, to make sure no product was left behind.

Then, I emptied the samples and partial tube into the "new" container.
