Tips for Packing Your Makeup and Toiletries

It can be difficult to pack your expensive shampoo, body care, and makeup products when moving. More than often, body care products will explode all over your valuables if they are not packed properly. Here at My Tucson Movers, we have some great tips that will help your body care products make it to your new home in one piece.

Pack Toiletries and Cosmetics Together

It is not the best idea to pack your toiletries and cosmetics along with your dishes and pans. Make sure to organize your boxes properly by keeping all cosmetics and toiletries together.

Also, be sure to keep heavier items, like shampoos or mouthwashes, near the bottom of your box. This way you can stack lighter items like toothbrushes, cotton balls, and feminine products near the top, which will reduce the chance of your products exploding.

Cover your Liquid Bottles

One of the biggest concerns when packing your toiletries is your liquid products spilling and making a mess. Many makeup and body care products can be expensive, so you do not want to run the risk of them breaking. Before packing your products remove the tops, putting either a zip lock bag or piece of saran wrap securely over the opening, and then screw back on the top.

Another way to secure your bottles is tapping the top of your bottles. Both methods eliminate the chance of your bottles top popping off.

Put a Cotton Ball in your Cosmetic Containers

Anyone who is familiar with eyeshadow or foundation powders understands how easily these products can break apart. A great way to prevent your favorite foundation or eyeshadow from breaking is sticking a cotton ball or pad over the powder. Though this may not always keep your powders from breaking, it is more likely for your powder to stay in the container, so you will still be able to use it.

Keep your Favorite Makeup Items with You

If you love a certain product pack a smaller bag that you can carry with you. If you have a favorite lipstick or cream that you’re afraid of melting in the hot Tucson heat, make sure to store it in your purse and keep it with you indoors.
