Baby Bottle Beauty? Yes re purpose/recycle your kid's baby bottles! Refrain from tossing the old ones out. They're handy because they list ounces on the side of every bottle. When you're traveling this summer, they take the guess work out of "what does 3oz. look like?" So they get ya through TSA w/out a hiccup. Inside my baby bottle, I loaded 3oz of Olay Ultra Moisturizing Body Wash ($6.99) www.olay.com because why only cleanse when you can also moisturize too (double duty beauty!)? Gently cleanse skin with a soap-free formula infused w/shea butter that with continued use also moisturizes all day for soft, healthy-looking skin.
