Cheapalicious beauty: Dove Go Fresh and Aveeno generics @ CVS

Ever since Recessionista! of Noveau Cheap spotted these Dove Go Fresh body mist and deordorant generics at her local CVS, I made sure I'd look out for them whenever I stopped in the next time. Yesterday, I happened to spot them, so I grabbed the Lemongrass and Grapefruit scent.

size comparison of CVS brand and Dove Go Fresh

For $3.99, you get a whole ounce more product than with the regular Dove spray (CVS brand is 4 oz.). The thing that disappointed me was that the CVS version didn't smell anywhere as close to the Dove Grapefruit and Lemongrass scent. The CVS version has more of a citrus-y scent as opposed to the fresh, clean scent of the Dove body spray. Don't get me wrong, I like the smell of the CVS version, but I was expecting it to smell somewhat similar to the real thing.  Perhaps I should've got a whiff of it before I bought it?  Not a total waste.  I will wear it on days when I want to smell citrus-y.

I then spotted the generic version of Aveeno's Positively Radiant Cleansing Pads and picked up a jar.  The CVS version is only $6.49 for 28 pads and they work just as well as the Aveeno pads.  I use these strictly for exfoliation (they are dual textured), and I love the way my skin feels afterwards.  Definitely one of my skincare staples.
