I'm NOT a fan

Let's get one thing straight...I do NOT deal well with change.  It's just not something I enjoy.  I can't process it.  NO BUENO! 

For those who know me, this is not news.  For you, my other cyber friends, I just wanted you to be in the know.

So, with my NON-proclivity for change...you can imagine my true disdain when products go and do THIS:

You see that?
The OLD one is on the right.
It's blue, nice color.
Has a pinch of design there on the bottom.
The Curel is large and visible.
It's been this way FOREVER!

The NEW one is on the left.
It's WHITE, lacking in all color.
There is NO design asthetic.
Curel is small and harder to see.
I HATE it.

WHY do these stupid companies feel it necessary to change something that has NOTHING wrong with it?
I just DON'T GET IT!
It happens FAR to often.
I mean, it's WHITE.  I literally walked past in in the lotion aisle THREE times.
It blends in with the shelves.
WHO thought this completely plain, bland and boring bottle was a good idea?


I am FULLY aware that this is a ridiculous thing to be bothered with.
But hey, this is me.  This is My blog.
Jere just told me I'm retarded for writing this.
I agreed.
But, so it goes.

I don't mind change when it makes sense, but I have to agree that the new bottle is bland and a total waste of whatever marketing resources were used to make the switch! Why would they think that was a good idea?

Oh no! I just read that blogger was going to be changing it's editing page. Hope you deal better with this than my sister in law that is totally freaking out.

Um, no you are not retarded (Jere!). I am bugged by the same thing....and I too am a Curel girl. Thanks for the warning, because I usually miss it when it's blue too!

I felt the same way when The Hoff got a haircut. Sob.

I hate when companies change logos and such. Most of the time I liked the first one better anyhow.

Jill said...

LOL! I totally agree. We are such visual shoppers... it makes a big difference.

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it"! Lets' scream it in unison...ready? 1, 2, 3...I feel better, and I'm sure they heard us! :)

How come the new bottle says "25% more" on it, but they look they exact same size?

Totally agree! What were they thinking!:)

Have you seen the new Gap logo?? it's AWFUL and looks like someone designed it in word. Go look..right now. before they change it, because they're getting terrible feedback.
I like change, but only when its my idea. If you don't consult me, you don't get to change anything. :)
