Lotion nubs

They’re a little thing, really. It shouldn’t bug me when I pick a lotion scab off a bottle top.

But it does.

It shouldn’t chafe when I rub a dollop of cream onto my skin, only to pick out the hardened little piece and flick it away.

But it does.

In fact, it chaps my cocoa-buttered, lanolin-ed, Vitamin-E hide. I want to emulsify those crusty little upstart nubbins with my emollient knuckles until they go back where they belong: into the bottle with the well-behaved lotion.

I hear ya.
And what, pray tell, are you meant to *do* with said offensive nubbins? Proper disposal is as elusive as glitter removal.
Boo, crusty critters!

Interesting website! This might appeal to you folks, an iPhone app for punching!

I have a conditioner bottle that does that too. Very annoying.

I call it a lotion booger. and they suck.

I'd tolerate a new lotion booger every day if my plastic milk carton would agree to never-ever-ever drop a flake of dried-up spoiled ick into the glass I just filled up.

Someone needs to figure out a way to get rid of those things. I can't stand them either.
