Mini Sunscreen Dispenser on the Go

Even though the Summer is ending, I’m still planning on being on the water, surfing and paddling….and freezing, probably. I’ve still got to remember to put on sunscreen because even in the Winter, you can still get charred skin, and since your face is normally exposed, I thought it would be good to keep some with me for my face.
I’m guilty of using some of those water flavor things in that compact packaging that really is wasteful, but makes my water taste a lot better. I hate to throw these out since they are great little squeeze bottles, and the labels are wrapped around the outside, so they just peel right off:

Make sure you rinse the bottle out really well by giving the bottle top a good twist. It will pop off. Run water though the nozzle too or you may have some “orange tangerine” in your sunscreen….hmmm, it would smell good!
Next, I got some sticker paper I can run through the printer to make a cool label:

I had to make the label VERY small, so keep that in mind. I hand cut around the image to the size I wanted. I could stick this directly onto the bottle, but since I’m going to use this around water, I wanted to protect the image, so I used some packing tape over the top of the image and then cut it out:

I just peeled off the backing of the sticker, placed it onto the front of the bottle, and it’s labeled.
Squeeze in some sunscreen from a large bottle (use economy size and save some cash!) and pop the top back on. The little bottle is leakproof, just make sure it snaps on completely:

Done! Pocket sunscreen on the go…..
