I've spotted some great things at Dollar Tree this week (more on that at the end of this post) but my best score by far was these mini Chap Ice Revos. For those new to Chap Ice Revos, they're also known as eos "dupes" (I put "dupes" in quotes because it's really only the packaging that's a dupe...the formulas are completely different). Take a peek at these cuties:
NEW Mini Chap Ice Revo Lip Balms in Strawberry, Watermelon and Cherry
(retail: $1 each at Dollar Tree, 0.14 oz)
Cherry, Strawberry, Watermelon
Here's another comparison:
Full-size Revo vs. mini Revos
Full-size Revo in Blue RazBerry vs. mini Revo in Strawberry
A full-size Revo is 0.25 oz. (exact same size as eos) while the mini is 0.14 oz. So you're getting a little over half the amount in the mini version so the price is fitting, given that most retailers sell the full-size Revos for about $2.99 (I think that's what Walgreens charges for their Walgreens brand Revos). So $1 for 0.14 oz. seems quite fair to me.
And in case you're curions, here's a comparison with the Softlips Cube (click here for my review):
Full-size Revo (0.25 oz), Softlips Cube (0.23 oz), mini Revo (0.14 oz)
As you can see, the mini Revo is just as compact as the Softlips Cube.
I don't know how many flavors Chap Ice offers in the mini Revos, but my Dollar Tree only had the three you see above. I'm assuming they'll probably make them in all of the eight core flavors listed HERE. I know that Walgreens releases limited edition seasonal flavors in their Revos, so maybe we'll see those in mini versions down the road?
Oh! And after weeks of searching, I finally found some Sally Hansen Salon Effects for $1 each at my Dollar Tree (remember my post about those popping up at Dollar Tree back at the end of April?). But I was completely let down when I discovered that my Dollar Tree only had one design (pic here), and it's my least favorite design of all. Just my luck!
One more thing I spotted at my Dollar Tree (and forgive me if this is a repeat and some of you have already mentioned this): full-size AcneFree skincare. My Dollar Tree had the Gentle Acne Scrub and Astringent Toner Pads for, of course, $1 each (click here for a pic). This is quite the deal since AcneFree products retail for around $8 each at the drugstores. I picked up the face scrub out of curiosity. Do any of you use that scrub?
That's it for this Dollar Tree sightings post--I just can't get over the cuteness of these mini Revos. If you like the Revo formula, definitely be on the lookout for these minis at your local Dollar Tree! And please do let me know if you spot the minis elsewhere (I have only seen these at Dollar Tree as of the time of this post).
