Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that some of the core products from brands such as Elemis, Gatineau and Decleor, among others, have somehow reduced the quality of their products? The smells have changed and some are now quite unpleasant and once-thick creams have become a lot thinner. Ultrasun is another one - I've used the face anti-pigmentation for a while now. I recently opened a new container and it was much thinner and with a strange smell. I asked about it FB and QVC said that Abi Cleeve (spelling?) confirmed that they have changed their manufacturing process, so the product is thinner and with a different smell - it smells a bit like a fake tan. To me, it means they found a way of selling us more air or more water. I also managed to spill some on a dressing gown where is now watery, and it has completely stained the gown. This has never happened before and it makes me wary of using it when I'm dressed in case it dribbles and stains. I used to love the Elemis smells but I've had to return some recently as they are obnoxious now. I don't think my nose is changing, so has anyone noticed this? Do they all use a base product from a central source, which may have changed?
