More things I regret buying- Dollar Store edition
I mistakenly thought these were these same cookies from Archway. The ones I am wild about that they only sale for a few short weeks around Christmas time. I was pretty excited to see these in the Dollar Store, but my excitement was very short lived. I immediately realized they were nothing like the wedding cookies you only see at Christmas. The whole box went to work where they were eaten by the secretaries.
I've used Lancome eye makeup remover for as long as I can remember, but, I can not deny, it is expensive. I was roaming around the Dollar Store when I saw this bottle for $6 and thought I'd give it a try. I'm sad to say it is not as good as the Lancome one. It burns and stings my eyes and it removes eye makeup but not mascara. I am disappointed, and even sadder I missed the Lancome gift with purchase sale. So now, I have to wait until the next one rolls around before getting the makeup remover I really want.
Oil of Olay Classic Cleaner ($3.00 Dollar Store)
First, let me just confess that I don't like Oil of Olay and I never have! I've tried to use it for many years but I just don't like it. But, I occasionally still try it. I see all the advertisements and get sucked in and decide I never gave it a fair chance, and I try it again only to discovery that I still don't like it. That's basically the story here. This didn't do much for me. It feels really thin and water-y and I didn't feel like my makeup was really off.
Another one that is completely my own fault. I saw the night cream and thought I'd give it another go. The packaging is small, pink and it was relatively cheap. I have dry skin and this didn't do much for me. I will keep it and use it when I run out of the one I really like and I'm waiting for my order from Ulta to come in.
