Today’s post is a bit different to my normal posts as it’s not so positive but just as honest.
It’s unrealistic to think that we love everything that we buy because we simply don’t, there are certain products that may actually be good but don’t work for you.
Here are some products that I’ve been trying out but haven’t worked for me as I wished they would:
L’Oreal facial cleansing oil
I’ve been using this for over four weeks and I just don’t get the hype of oil cleansers. It does take off makeup but leaves my skin feeling too oily and god forbid I try to remove eye makeup, then my eye goes blurry and feels like I cant see. I personally wouldn’t recommend as I feel like micellar water and makeup wipes work much better!
NYX Badunkadunk mascara
Yes I bought this purely for its’ name, serves me right, right? I love majority of NYX’s products so was a bit surprised to be disappointed with this one. It adds a reasonable amount of volume but boyyy does it make me look like a panda! Putting it on is like doing surgery, I have to make sure my hand is absolutely still or it transfers everywhere. Even after just an hour of wearing it I find myself with panda eyes. The kids at my job love it, I frankly do not. I wouldn’t recommend this product unfortunately.
Barry M liquid chrome highlighter drops
I personally prefer powder highlighters but really wanted to give this a go because it looked stunning when I swatched it instore. I don’t think its a bad product, I just don’t enjoy using it on myself as it can be quite patchy and hard to blend out.
The Body Shop Almond nail and cuticle manicure oil
I use this every night and have seen no difference to my nails sadly, it doesn’t help to push up my cuticles so I wouldn’t recommend this product.
And that is all! This post was long awaited as I like 9/10 of the products I buy so it’s very uncommon to find something that disappoints!
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post! Please let me know in the comments what products you’ve not been loving recently!
Love, Jess x
