I came across a real sunscreen bargain at the dollar store the other day – buy one get one free, coupled with an e-coupon I had, and my total came to $1.50 for two 1-gallon economy-size containers.
When I walked out of the store, I was happily calculating how many years it’d be before I’d have to buy sunscreen again. However, I ran into a problem that all Spokane area runners should be aware of.
As I rubbed the sunscreen in, it didn’t feel the same as my previous brand. I rubbed and rubbed and ten minutes later, very little of it had soaked in. I rubbed some more and nothing changed. A half hour later I gave up and took the below photo.
I’ve come to the conclusion that this product is actually paint, and someone has committed an outrageous mislabeling injustice. Of course, I marched back to the store and demanded a $1.50 refund, which I got.
Now I’m considering legal action, which I’ve never done before. If there is anyone who can give me a tip on how to get started, I’d appreciate it.
