On the fate of Aveeno Shave Gel

Aveeno's shave gel, which I use with no substitute for the last 13 years is off the shelves of all major department stores and is nowhere to find on-line. When a product is discontinued, it disappears from various stores at different times. So, I inquired with Aveeno.

Here is part of the response. "The product" is the shave gel.

Dear Dr Dekhtyar:

Thank you for contacting the Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. Information Center. It is always important to hear from our consumers, and we appreciate the time you have taken to contact us.

Thank you so much for your loyalty to our product. Unfortunately, due to problems with the dispensing components, we have decided not to ship the product until we can correct the problem and bring you the high quality product you rightly expect. We are working diligently to bring this product back to the marketplace by the end of this year.

I am cautiously optimistic. In the meantime, Rite Aid has a copycat gel. For reasons beyond my understanding, they don't seem to have it in the on-line store, but it is on the shelves.

Now, back to scheduled procrastination.
