You would think by the name of the post that this was a product review of an item from Soap & Glory but no it's a me whinging about them changing packaging.
I have previously mentioned S&G Off you face cleansing wipes in my Current Skincare Rountine and it's been in my monthly favourites. I enjoy using the wipes as they are quick and simple to use, they actually feel like they are working and they only cost around £4.50 for 25 wipes.
As these have been part of my regular routine I popped along to Boots this month to pick them up and I was annoyed to see they had changed the packaging. The original packaging was:
As you can see it had a clip lid for you to open and close to get the wipes out. Now it's:
It's just a sticky label! From having a child I have learnt that the packets of wipes are best when they come with a proper lid not a sticky label. No matter how hard you try to make sure it's shut properly the label loses it adhesion and won't close, thus it won't keep the wipes moist.
So I was very annoyed that they had changed the wipes. I know it will be a money saving exercise, prices of raw materials across the world are going up and companies need to still be making good margin so they can make a profit. But as my wipes look like this after using up half
I don't think the packet will survive the next half!
I am going to first try to search for old packets it Boots stores nearby. But then I am unsure whether I will continue to use them with the new packaging. As it will continue to annoy me!!
Do you have any favourite items where companies have changed the packaging for the worse?
