What Were They Thinking?

Every year I order Avon's Skin So Soft insect repellant and sun screen.  It really works well and it's SPF 30 which I need.  So I placed my usual order and waited for it to arrive, using Mac's DEET spray to keep the mosquitoes off in the interim.  When it came I noticed it was in a blue bottle, but didn't really pay a lot of attention because in the past it had come in white or green bottles.  The first time I used it I couldn't believe it, the lotion was blue, bright blue!  I went back online and looked at the description and sure enough it said it would be blue, their new "cool and fabulous" disappearing colored lotion.  I also noticed that it is now listed for less than half its original price.  Well that's because it isn't cool and it doesn't disappear, not completely, it leaves my skin with a blueish tinge, isn't that nice.  So I had to go back online and search the original one I've always used, finally found it.  It'll be nice to not be blue.
