Charging $23.50 for your “Care Blends Essential Oils“? Really?The Care Blends will be released with the Warm & Cozy collection on the 26th of December in Grapefruit + Chamomile and Sweet Orange + Lavender, but I’d advise you to keep an tight fist on your Christmas money. Here are the two things that may happen:
- The essential oils are neither essential nor purely oil, and are not dupe-able at home because MAC has added filler substances to
reduce coststylishly take the edge off the delicious grapefruit scentoffensive fragrances.
- The essential oils are just essential oils, and can be replicated using the two essential oils in the name (you can find them in your local Whole Foods-esque store) and an eyedropper. Total cost: about $10 instead of $23.50, plus you can bet on ending up with at least double the product.
I’ll have to see them in person first, but my money’s on option #2 — so get to your local organic store and blend your OWN oils, please!! Don’t cave to the pretty packaging presented by MAC.
