Okay. So below on the left is my favourite shampoo. In the world. I find it super hard to get used to smells especially ones that linger in my hair so I prefer to stick with either a strawberry smell or a shampoo like head & shoulders which is more of a neutral smell.
What I don’t understand is why companies feel the need to change their products ‘formula’ regularly. It’s annoying. So when my mum couldn’t understand why our supermarket no longer stocked the shampoo on the left (below) we were both confused. I googled and found out that the shampoo had been repackaged and a new formula bought in…(right below)
Im better than I was with change but it’s getting used to products again which I find so difficult. This happened not that long ago with Always night pads/liners (which I prefer to use on my time of the month – I hate talking about this but feel it relates). I always liked the design of the pad and although it took some getting used to for the first time aged 16 I used them ever since. About a year or two ago the Always brand decided to scrap their current range and release a new line of pads for day, night, etc.
THEY WERE ALL SCENTED.
I quite literally freaked. Never had I experienced such a powerful overwhelming perfumey girly smell. And I could no longer buy unscented pads which to me was upsetting. Yes, I grew to live with the scent (unhappily) but what annoys me is that the people at companies like Always and Alberto Balsam don’t understand that when they change their formula or scent it really can affect people who rely on and use their products everyday.
