Have you ever noticed Youtube has hundreds of people reviewing Bath And Body works products.

Nope because I make my own out of natural ingredients I have in my kitchen.

I look closely where the products I buy are made.
I have German cutlery, French enameled cast iron, a Finland made Sako rifle, etc.
I don't mind paying the much higher prices for high-quality items for two reasons:
The premium I pay is usually because the cost of living and quality of life in the countries I buy from are at least on par with USA costs, usually higher.
I don't trust anything out of China. Tools from China are garbage, the clothes are mis-sized and low quality, food from China is out of the question, and so on. The only thing I look for from China is true goat bristle paint brushes.

A regional store, LL Bean, used to make most of their products locally in Maine. Now, 99% of their catalog just says "imported". The giveaway is if the product is not from China, the county of origin is highlighted, australian wool or English whatever.
I no longer buy anything from LL Bean except certain Maine made shoes, which actually cost the same as the crap from China.
All-Clad makes really good copper-cored stainless steel pots and pans, but their roasting pans are Chinese, which ticked me off enough to just give away the one I bought and proceed to get a Mauviel roaster from France.
Okay, enough from me, (oh, I drive a Jeep Wrangler and a Buick.)

We looked at Spanish pots and pans, but it would have been a bit bulky to get home chuckle.gif

When we would send stuff to Olga’s family in Slovakia, we used a Polish shipping company.
Because of the free-trade agreements in that area, there were no duties or import taxes.

I'm in my seventh decade on Earth. I know things.
