Please chime in

Yesterday, I made a post about how impressed I was after seeing some higher end products at CVS. In the comment section Frugalista took no time in busting my bubble (just kidding) when she asked " Has anyone heard that once a high end beauty line goes to the drugstore, it's counterfeit? ". I would like to think that CVS is an established company and would not risk selling fake goods but hey, you never know.
If you have an answer please share your knowledge here.
Thanks so much everyone.

Thanks Frugalista

I'm sowwy, PJD. I didn't' mean to be killjoy. It's just the journalist in me. :)

Check out this link on high-end shampoos that hit drugstores:

None of the products in the story are ones you have listed, so that's a good thing. But, I remember an old hair dresser who always said once a product was offered to the drug store, he stopped using it.

That's kind of scary. I get my Burt's Bees from Walgreens (realize that's not a salon brand), but maybe I should stick to whole foods.

LOL!
