I sat here for five minutes trying to think of a brand that consistently puts out bad product (with no redeeming products) but couldn’t think of anything.
If I don’t have a good handle on how the brand or product performs, then it’ll just depend on the return policy. If it’s generous, then I’ll usually still buy it–if I really wanted it to begin with. If I’m just browsing, no testers means I probably won’t buy anything.
Yes, definitely, though my line seems to shift, depending on the type of product. It’s one of those things where I’ll know it when I see it, LOL!
Only two — my AM facial cleanser and Philosophy shower gel! I do also use ExfoliKate every 3-4 days, and then I wash my hair with shampoo and conditioner every other day.
It depends on what kind of claims they’re making. I do, inherently, put more faith in a brand I’ve heard about than one I’ve never heard of, but I think that is true with anything (unknown vs. known) — but it doesn’t convince me to try it.
