Teeny, weeny Murad Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence and Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture

This topic's come up a little bit over the last several months, probably because so many of the Lipstick League members are travelling or moving house (as far as we know, none of us is on the lam). The question: Are you a product depotter?

I. Am. Not. Heck, I've got a stash of Murad Ultimate Hydration Duo minis, partly because I love the stuff and the kits are only $15 CAD each and I did the compared-with-full-size math, and partly because I just can't be bothered to decant. I never remember what's in what refillable container. Oh, I think I will, but come time for the next trip, I don't know what's toner and what's micellar cleanser. *eye roll*

And sure, I could label things... #asif. Besides, branded mini sizes are cute!
