In a recent TikTok video, a British woman named Bolu Brea (@bolubrea) unveiled a collection of surprising items she purchased at an American Walmart, revealing that some of these products are banned in the U.K. Upon arriving in the U.S., Brea wasted no time in acquiring what she described as her "favorite products," which included items unavailable back home due to regulatory restrictions.

During her TikTok presentation, Brea showcased a series of images featuring the diverse range of items she had acquired at Walmart. Expressing her enthusiasm for American goods, she acknowledged that while certain products are restricted in the U.K. for valid reasons, she found herself drawn to these particular selections during her visit to the United States. Bolu's TikTok carousel kicked off with a startling find: bottles of ibuprofen and extra-strength acetaminophen, each boasting a whopping 500 capsules.

In awe of the volume, she remarked, "No because 500 in one bottle?!?! I had to stock up on these." Continuing her tour of American pharmacy shelves, Bolu showcased melatonin supplements with 10mg per serving, noting that in the UK, such products are "only available on prescription." Transitioning to beauty, she featured Olay's Moisturizing Body Wash, praising its incorporation of retinol. "Olay really ate by putting retinol in body wash. Does this body wash?? 10/10," she quipped.

Switching gears to oral care, Bolu praised Crest's 3D White Strips, asserting that they outperform similar UK whitening products. She also expressed affection for Tide-to-go markers, which she hailed for erasing stains like a champ. Rounding out her haul, she highlighted Vick's max strength pack containing both DayQuil and NyQuil. "You can only get 'night nurse' here [in the UK] now," she jested in overlay text. Humorously captioning her video, "The land of the free or whatever they said," Bolu's post quickly garnered a flurry of comments from fellow shoppers sharing their own experiences and insights on the products.
