I LOVE contact lens cases. They are so inexpensive, you can buy multiples in a package, and there are so many things you can store in them. One of my favorite things to put into a contact lens case is homemade lip gloss or lip scrub. I plan on writing up a post with that recipe soon so keep an eye out.
I purchased a package of contact lens cases last week to store essential oils in. I like to mix essential oils them with a carrier oil to help make the oils last longer and massage in easier. I didn’t want to use up a lot of each essential oil and carrier oil so I figured mixing a few drops of the essential oil with some carrier oil (olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil, etc.) in a contact lens case would be perfect. It’s just the right amount for a few uses when I am using the oils. This way I don’t have to dilute too much of the essential oil at one time. I’ll be posting more on essential oils soon. I swear by them!
I am going to BlogHer (a blogger convention) this week and I will be gone for 3 nights. As I began to pack I looked over at the package of contact lens cases that I hadn’t used yet and inspiration hit me. Instead of traveling with the bottles of each cream, lotion, primer, etc. that I use on my face, why not just put some of each facial lotion, etc. in compartment of a contact lens case? Genius if I do say so myself! Of course for body lotion I would need a bigger container but since I just use a little bit of my day cream, night cream, primer, and Aquaphor, this is perfect and takes up so much less space!
I plan on adding more idea to this post but I wanted to get it up before BlogHer to help anyone else traveling this week. Have an idea on something to store in a contact lens case? Comment below!
A few notes:
- I always wash and dry the cases before I use them.
- I prefer the cases that have screw-on lids but this batch hubby bought. I am putting it inside a snack size baggie just in case it leaks because of the style of cap on them but they seem pretty tight.
