Pictures always tell the real story.
When I couldn't pump any more product from this container of Vaseline Total Moisture hand lotion, I wrenched the top off. Wrench is a good word. Clearly the top isn't meant to twist off.
Then I pounded the container against a glass to empty out the remaining product. Look how much hand lotion was still inside even though I couldn't pump it out.
Hmmm. Design flaw? I wonder how many consumers toss it when it no longer pumps the lotion, figuring it to be empty?
I see this as a subtle way of Big Biz hoping Average Josephine won't bother doing what I did -- pound out the remaining product -- but instead buy a replacement.
Think about this next time something appears to be empty.
