Disappointing Products

image

I usually do enough research before I purchase any product, so usually there aren’t a lot of disappointing products especially when it comes to makeups. I can make it work one way or another. But once in a while the sales got me or what works for others just doesn’t work for me. So here we go, let’s see if we’ve got the same opinion!

Bioderma Micellar Water

 

The Bioderma Micellar Water is a product that I absolutely hate. I know everyone raves about it and if you love it, I’m so sorry. This product just doesn’t do a thing for me. It doesn’t take off mascara at all and I have to go thru my face multiple times to take off one layer of foundation. It also dries out my skin and leaves a weird texture on my face. I always end up having to cleanse my face again. Eh.

The second disappointing product is Lush’s Queen Bee. I really like Lush and their shampoo bars, so when the sales talked to me about this, I was hooked. It’s supposed to nourish hair while keeping my wavy hair nice and controlling flyaways. The biggest problem I have with it is it weighs my hair down and makes my hair kinda greasy even before noon. So now I have a big chunk of this left just sitting here staring at me.

PHYTO Paris ultra repairing mask

Speaking of hair products, I think I’ve mentioned that I like to use hair masks as my daily conditioner. I had really high hopes for this mask as everyone raves about Photy Paris. But I just don’t find this working for my hair. Not only does it not make my hair soft and smooth, it leaves residues on my hair and won’t wash away. When my hair dries, it feels tacky and like I have put gel or moose on it. Does it happen to you if you have used it? I would really like to know how you use it if it works for you.

Aesop Amazing Face Cleanser

This Aesop cleanser is not a bad product, it is very gentle. I think it’s be great for sensitive skin, but it’s “too” gentle for me. I use it mainly as a morning cleanser to remove the residue of the skincare from the night before and any exceed oil. However, it is not strong enough to cleanse the pores. Sometimes I use it to clean my face at night and I do notice that my face isn’t as smooth and the pores are as clean. I read a lot of reviews online that say it helps with acne skin. I don’t have acne problem but I do have one or two pimples here and there. However, I don’t feel like it’s doing any difference to my skin. So for this price, I’d expect it to do more than just “gently clean your skin”.

Estee Lauder Double wear mascara

I am very picky about mascaras. A lot of the mascaras do a great job in volumizing and lengthening, however, they weigh my lashes down. But this mascara doesn’t do anything, It only makes my lashes more black. There’s no volume, length. or curl added to my lashes. It also smudges. Good thing I didn’t get a full size.

NYX Colored Felt Tip Liner

I love NXY’s products. I had really high hopes on this gorgeous royal blue colour. It’s supposed to give a vivid blue with this felt-tip brush. However I could only get 2 uses out of it because after the second time, the colour just wouldn’t come out off the brush. I was really sad, and still am because this is such a pretty colour and I was hoping to get many more uses! Has anyone else experienced the same?

After the 2nd use…

These are just some products that don’t work for me. I still really like these brands and will try more of their products in the future.
