Spatula for your cream?

Hi girls! I'm wondering what do you use for your creams that are in jars, instead of your fingers ? Smiley Happy I used to use my hands to apply a face cream, but I've reading so much how there are too many germs and it's not recommended to put your fingers in any beauty product. Any suggestions? 

 

 

Re: Spatula for your cream?

I use a cuticle stick for this. I keep a separate one for my creams and don't use it on my hands/feet.

 

Re: Spatula for your cream?

Cool! Thank you! I have few of these (brand new), will use it tonight Smiley Happy

Re: Spatula for your cream?

Am I the only cheapskate that stocks up on free mascara spoolies, spatulas, and foam-tip applicators whenever I make a Sephora run? ok, just me then Smiley Wink

Re: Spatula for your cream?

Lol )) I didn't know we could take them for free ))) 

Re: Spatula for your cream?

I ask for some spatulas whenever I purchase things and they throw it in the bag for free. ;D  I also keep the boxes of my moisturizers/eye creams so I can put them in there without problems of taking them.

Re: Spatula for your cream?

A qtip works for me...two fresh ends..and then toss.

Re: Spatula for your cream?

I always wash my face, thus my hands as well, before applying face cream, so I do use my fingers. As long as my hands are clean, I do not worry about it!

Re: Spatula for your cream?

I wash my hands and I'm not a germaphobe, so I use my fingers. In winter I need moisturizers that are too thick for pumps. I also use a spatula for some things. You can buy them by the 25 pack at Sally Beauty (along with extra lip brushes, spoolies, all kinds of useful things). You can clean them with brush cleanser, put them in the dishwasher, or just toss them because they're not that expensive. 

Re: Spatula for your cream?

I use a metal spatula from an art store. The spatula I got is supposed to be used for ceramics but I've changed its destiny for my own use. Lol. I am cutting plastic from my life so if I could cut it, I would. The plastic spatulas had to go. I use one with flat ends and clean it with a make up wipe afterwards. I wash it regularly along with my brushes. 

 

(I mainly use the metal spatula to scoop out colors from the MUFE Flash Palette- plastic ones get stained after a while) 

Re: Spatula for your cream?

Spatulas, plural. Never double dip. Ditto for cream foundation/bronzer/blush. I keep a backup package and buy a new one as soon as I open it. They can be sanitized and reused when I wash brushes. In a pinch, I'll pull out product with a qtip or even a  straw or a chopstick that's been kept sealed. It's not perfect but it's more hygienic than fingers.
