Amazon Mountain Falls: A Comprehensive Guide

We love a comprehensive list! We’ve tested all of Aldi, Target, and now; Amazon Mountain Falls. See what ranks highly against its name brand counterpoint, as well as what you should avoid. It should be noted, many of the Mountain Falls products only come in multi-packs. You’ll want to feel confident placing that order… that’s where Brandefy comes in!

While some of the Mountain Falls products were provided to Brandefy at no-cost, our panelists were not aware of this, and it did not impact the similarity scores.

All Free & Clear Laundry Detergent vs. Mountain Falls Ultra Fresh & Clean Laundry Detergent Free From Perfumes and Dyes

Similarity Score: 92%

We found these products very similar. Even though they are both perfume free, they seemed to have the same very faint scent of soap. They cleaned similarly and did not make our sensitive skins react. We did ding the Mountain Falls a little because the spout is larger and made the detergent come out fast, so watch out for that if you make the switch! Buy our pick

These products are very similar! Both formulas have a nice, clean smell and seem to have about the same consistency. The only difference testers could find is that Dove lathered a little more.

Similarity Score: 91%

Act Anticavity Fluoride Rinse Kids Bubble Gum vs. Mountain Falls Anticavity Fluoride Rinse for Kids Bubble Gum

Similarity Score: 90%

Mountain Falls is the first generic we've seen to copy the Act dispense control measuring top. One of the bottles we used did, however, have a packaging flaw and the dispenser came detached from the bottle- creating quite the spill. We deducted points for that. Aside from this one blip, the mouthwashes tasted, smelled, and functioned very similarly, and we would make the switch to save (provided this flaw truly was just on the one bottle in the batch we received). *Some generics have been provided to Brandefy at no cost, but testers were unaware of this and therefore, it did not influence our opinions about the quality of the private label.

Similarity Score: 90%

These products are almost the same in all categories. The ingredients differ slightly, which may affect how they perform overall.

We like this dupe! Mountain Falls comes with a protective seal. It also has a more pleasant fragrance than Coppertone, which just smells like sunscreen.

We'd be happy to recommend switching. Buy our pick

Clearasil Rapid Rescue Deep Treatment Pads vs. Mountain Falls Quick Action Pads

Similarity Score: 83%

Testers preferred the store brand in this case! The one flaw is the packaging, because it came with two seals which was a little harder to take off.

Biotene Dry Mouth Oral Rinse Fresh Mint vs. Mountain Falls Dry Mouth Oral Rinse Mint

Similarity Score: 82%

Testers preferred the typical screw top and measure on the Mountain Falls packaging. Biotene has a cap and is a squeeze dispenser. They smell and taste similar, but Biotene is a thicker consistency.

Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser vs. Mountain Falls A.M. Refresh Cleanser

Similarity Score: 78%

The notable difference between these two is the smell. The Clean & Clear wash smells like citrus, while the MT Falls wash smells slightly minty, but mostly just like soap.

Olay UV 365 Sensitive Skin Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen with SPF 15 vs. Mountain Falls Sensitive Skin Beauty Lotion SPF 15

Similarity Score: 70%

Testers liked the packaging of the store brand because of its easy flip top. The name brand you have to screw the whole top off. However, testers could not get over the smell of the store brand.

Both products smelled strongly of alcohol at first but once rubbed into the skin the smell faded for both. Some testers thought the name brand was slightly greasier but others didn't notice a difference. The results of the comparison were split - half the testers thought the strong smell and difficult spray button on the store brand were deal breakers while the other half could look past that for the better price. This might have to come down to preference. *Some generics have been provided to Brandefy at no cost, but testers were unaware of this and therefore, it did not influence our opinions about the quality of the private label.

Old Spice Swagger Body Wash vs. Mountain Falls Strut Body Wash

Similarity Score: 68%

Testers were not impressed with this store brand. Its scent matched up pretty well to the name brand but the texture did not. The store brand was much thicker and harder to rub into the skin. Also, it left a lot of residue on the shower that wouldn't wash away with just water. That's not something you want out of a body wash. We recommend sticking with Old Spice in this case.

Dawn Ultra Liquid Dish Soap vs. Mountain Falls Dish Soap Clean Scent
Similarity Score: 68%

The store brand seemed to hold up well until it came to functionality. Testers found that it didn't lather nearly as well as the name brand and left a small film after cleaning. Also, the store brand smells sweeter while the name brand smells more like a soap. We'll be sticking with Dawn in this case. *Some generics have been provided to Brandefy at no cost, but testers were unaware of this and therefore, it did not influence our opinions about the quality of the private label.* Buy our pick

Old Spice Pure Sport Body Wash vs. Mountain Falls Men’s Sport Body Wash

Similarity Score: 65%

While these are pretty similar body washes, our tester who is an avid old spice user could not get over the smell difference. When you reach for Old Spice, you're aiming for that infamous scent that goes with it. Our tester thought the store brand just didn't hold up, plus its texture was thicker and harder to rub into the skin. For these reasons, we'd recommend sticking with the name brand.

Banana Boat Sport Performance Cool Zone Sunscreen Spray SPF 50 vs. Mountain Falls Active Sport Sunscreen Spray SPF 50

Similarity Score: 63%

The name brand has slightly nicer packaging making it easier to spray the sunscreen. It also has a more pleasing smell considering the store brand reminded testers of Windex... Testers agreed Banana Boat sprays more evenly and is not as runny as Mountain Falls. All agreed they would stick with the name brand in this case.

Cetaphil Unscented Daily Facial Moisturizer vs. Mountain Falls Daily Facial Moisturizer

Similarity Score: 63%

The store brand comes with an extra cap but both have pumps. The name brand is truly unscented while the store brand has a milky scent to it. Testers preferred the texture of the store brand as it was much thicker and felt more like a lotion. The major drawback here is that the store brand is only SPF 15 while the name brand is SPF 50. Testers were drawn on whether they would switch. All preferred the texture of Mountain Falls but did not care for its smell. They also said they liked the higher SPF of Cetaphil. This decision will have to come down to personal preference.

Eucerin Advanced Repair Lotion vs. Mountain Falls Extra Moisturizing Lotion

Similarity Score: 56%

Testers agreed they would not make the switch in this case. Due to a slicker feel on the skin and the watery consistency of the store brand it didn't feel like it held the same quality as the name brand.
