Take that, CVS!

For the last couple of years, I have been using CVS brand gentle facial cleansing wash. On the bottle is says "Compare to Purpose", so I figured it was the same as Purpose. It was oil and soap free and I really liked how it made my skin feel.

Recently, I was getting low, so decided to get a new bottle, so I would not run out. Well, thank you very much, CVS. Apparently, I was the only one that liked the facial cleanser as you no longer carry it. Ugh! So, I have been looking for a replacement cleanser. Oh, sure, I COULD pay $9.99 for a bottle of Purpose, but I just don't want to. So, I have been looking.

Then, last weekend, I was at Aldi and looked at the HBA endcap...yes, it is just an endcap at my store.....and there was a bottle of Lacura facial cleanser.I had read good things about Lacura products so thought I would try a bottle. Heck, it was only $2.49. If I didn't like it on my face, I could use it as body wash, or to hand wash something.

I think mine had a green top though. I don't know now, as I put in in a pump bottle I had so I could just pump it instead of picking it up and squeezing. No, not lazy...just like the amount the pump bottle gives me.

So take that CVS, I don't have to buy more expensive facial cleanser. I will just buy it from Aldi.

Happy Friday, everyone!

I love Aldi. And it is only an end-cap at our store too. I can get in and out of there super fast. I hate when I have to go to any other stores to get something that I can't get at Aldi. Makes me cringe. But the nice thing is most of the stores around here have had to drop their prices just to compete with Aldi. Good! They should have done it a long time ago. I shop the loss leaders at the others and nothing else.
