Dr. Miracle’s Knock Off Brand? – Say It Aint So

Living in New York is fascinating. You can find just about ANYTHING here. This is an impromptu post but I just had to share. Check out what I discovered the other day at a store called Lot for Less in Manhattan:

Doctor's Miracle Knock Off Brand

Dr. Miracle’s I know but Doctor Wonder?  Who the heck are you?  Notice, the packaging is VERY similar…same colors, font and everything. There’s even a little black man on the box!

 Doctor Wonder products

I must admit I was tempted to buy the hair growth oil just to see.  At $1.99 how could I lose? Well, I’ll tell you how.  Whenever I see a knockoff brand I have to wonder if what they say on the ingredient list is so. I’m just skeptical that way.

I actually did find a product review of Doctor Wonder’s Tingling Gro. Check it out at http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2485354/product_review_doctor_wonder_tingling.html?cat=69

What’s your take on it?

  1. Yeah, I wouldn’t have bought a knock-off without knowing a little something about it. Knowing my luck it’d make my hair fall OUT. ;)

      LOL@Shannon and Evelyn. Funny you both think your hair would fall out. I don’t think my hair would fall out but I’m not taking any chances.

  2. Wow, that’s strange! Don’t think I would have purchased this, then again, who knows. :) Seriously, I’m with Shannon, it would probably make my hair all out.

    I’m a sucker for a knock off brand. It doesn’t help that I can google the products with my phone right there in the store to compare the two.

      lol nooooooo. I actually do buy store brand versions of some things. I just don’t do brands that are trying to sound, act like and look the same when they aren’t.

  5. Knowing my luck, my hair would fall out like gangbusters! LOL! Anything that cheap and so close in branding to an established product gets a side-eye from me.

      I know right! The thing is the review I read on it was not too bad. The lady basically said the product made her scalp tingle but didn’t seem to make a difference in her hair growing. No harm but no results.

  6. I have never used Dr. Miracle but I have seen it at the store. Are the ingredients natural?
    I don’t like knock-offs to because they are stealing brand recognition when they have packaging so similar. I will check out your review of Dr. Wonder.

      Hey JT, it was someone else’s review I found online. I don’t think the ingredients are natural because it wouldn’t be that cheap.

  7. That is interesting. You think it could be the same company operating under a similar name? I can’t imagine why. You have uncovered a mystery. :)

      I don’t think it’s the same co. but who knows. I would have to wonder why however they would want to create a knock off brand that’s mediocre.

    I’m very weary of knock off brands. I actually damaged my skin pretty bad with a knock off perfume so I would be even more paranoid to try something like that on my hair.

      Awww man that sucks. I know what you mean though. I don’t do knock offs but I’ll do store brands like Rite Aid, Walgreens brand etc….depending on what it is.

      You’re brave!
