Some of you may or may not remember me complaining (and FREAKING OUT) about Dove. Well, I’m here to finally tell my story.
Imagine this: You find this magnificent product that does wonders for your life. You walk taller, you are happier, and you just feel amazing. You use this product day in and day out…year after year. Then one day, you go to the store to replenish your dwindling quantity and the shelves are empty. No big deal, just check at another place – I mean stores are known to run out of things, right? But after going to 3, 4, 5, even 6 stores (some not even in the same state!) and seeing empty shelf after empty shelf, you realize quickly that something is terribly wrong.
Come to find out that the ENTIRE line of products is being discontinued.
Dove Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cleanser.
Dove went and decided it was going to discontinue their entire face wash line – without telling me – their #1 customer. It’s one thing if it’s just one product, or a cologne/perfume, but AN ENTIRE LINE? I know I’ve been a devoted/loyal fan and purchaser of Dove for over 10 years, telling people about it, convincing people to use it and love it, and they just go and just get rid of it. RIDICULOUS!
I remember when I told my Mamma about this. I will confess – she absolutely laughed in my face and said “find another face wash.” –>Obviously my lovely Mother doesn’t realize the extent of the issue. IT’S MY FACE!! I know, I know…you’re thinking I’m absolutely nuts, aren’t you?
So, what did I do?
I went on to Amazon – found it, and ordered 15 bottles. Yes, that is correct – 15. And if you’re any Seinfeld fan, you have Elaine and “are you sponge worthy?” stuck in your head at this point. If you’re not, shame on you for not watching Seinfeld :)
Sooooooo, awesome. I’m a fan of Dove again. Stock up for a bit, and deal with it later. What comes in the mail a few weeks later? MY BOX OF DOVE FACE WASH!! WOO HOO! I rip it open…hello, I’ve been waiting over 3 weeks for this. Then I see it’s not even the product I ordered. It’s a Dove product, yes, but not the one I ordered. It’s the FOAMING not the the DAILY. (Yes, it matters, dangit.)
Did they not think I would notice?
Did I receive notification from Amazon that the order was being changed? No.
THERE’S NOT EVEN A RECEIPT IN THE BOX. WHAT THE HELL.
I go back on Amazon’s site just to make sure I’m not mistaken here and as I had thought, I didn’t order the product they sent me.
After having a fit (yes, I did), yelling at Amazon through my computer, yelling at Dove through my computer, crying (kidding), and sleeping on it for a few days, I decided to keep this “Foaming” facewash in hopes that it will do the same amazing thing as the “Daily.” I still can’t believe Dove. It irks me to this day, and quite frankly, every time I use it. But c’est la vie, my friends. (At least that’s what I’ll say until my 15 bottles runs out.)
Moral of the story:
