The Truth about Poundland and Stila
I've just watched Dispatches: The Secret of Poundland and something that they showed was rather disturbing...
Through the blogging community I read/heard that Poundland had started to stock Stila cosmetics. For only £1 that was a fantastic deal. I even went into a few Poundlands to buy some, but they either didn't have any or the products that they were selling were not suitable for me (eg. too light/dark). But thank goodness I didn't waste my money on it.
In the programme, the investigation team contacts Stila. Stila comes back and said that the products they are selling ceased manufacture 8 years ago. Which means that these cosmetics are ancient! Also Stila said that they had no idea how Poundland found these products to sell in the first place. I think this is rather alarming, so that's why I've shot upstairs to write this post!
Here's the Channel 4 link, the Stila section is in the second half of the programme.
It will be released on 4OD to watch soon.
