The cost. It's £4.99. I don't think thats much tbh. It lasts a really long time.
Opening for the first time. It will no doubt have sugar around the rim. Run your finger all around the outside of the pot and clean it all off. Then use whats on your finger. Thats the outside of the pot cleaed up. Next time you use it, squish it all down in the pot firmly and that should sort any overflow/mess.
Using the stuff. Don't scoop. you don't need to. I've seen reviews where people are complaing that it drops off their lips and fingers. I saw a review which featured a picture of lips covered in the stuff (way way way too much). General complaints about messiness and so on. So to use, simply press your finger firmly on to the top of the product. What sticks to your finger is more than enough. I promise. Like this:
Totally unrelated but look at these beauties:
