In my time, I've gone through my fair share of products. Most of them are damn right awesome but others just don't quite make the cut. This doesn't mean that they won't work for you, but I just don't really get the hype or love around them.
First off, after many recommendations around the blogging world I knew I had to have the Good Things Five Minute Facial Face Mask in Avocado and Goji Berry (wow, long name alert). I don't know if it is of by coincidence, but this tended to break me out in spots after I used it and my skin under my eyes was so tender and sore after application. On paper this sounds awesome, all natural ingredients, clay mask, quick five minutes and you're done... but it didn't quite do it for me!
Now the next one may come as a surprise to you just as much as it did me since I'm Body Shop's biggest fan ATM. However I don't know why but I just don't get this The Body Shop Coconut Oil Hair Shine. Whenever I use it, it makes my hair feel greasy. Plus it's hard to scoop it out of the pot because it's quite hard and waxy in concitency. It smells awesome, and I'm a huge fan of coconut oil but this just doesn't seem to be easy to apply. Ladies, let me know how you apply it if you've tried it... could just be me being a noose!
Next up, onto eyes. Now after my Maybelline Colour Tattoo Eyeshadow pot lovin' phase, I was so eager to get into more paint pot, primer things so I gave the Bourjois Colour Edition 24hr Eyeshadow a whirl and by golly did this steak like a mofo. The colour and packaging of this is awesome, and I'm a complete Bourjois Convert. But I just couldn't get on with this. It just streaked, wouldn't blend very well, very sheer. Not my thang at all.
Then when I got my Inglot Freedom Palette, I picked up a couple of bits from their range including the Inglot Eyeshadow Primer Pot. This literally MAKES by eyeshadow crease, also very streaky. The lady in the shop said to set it with a plain base colour which I've done and it's not much different. It does a great job of cancelling out those dreaded red, veiny eyes we all have first thing but in terms of priming... nuh uh.
Last but not least whilst I was on a hunt for a new moisturiser I thought I'd give the L'oreal Skin Perfection Day Moisturiser a go. This is a decent moisturiser, does the job of giving a bit of moisture but isn't anything special. It didn't really cure my dry nose skin I've got goin on so I think I'll stick to my good ole Clinique Moisture Surge Gel Creme Moisturiser instead!
Now, rant over... let me know what products you've tried and tested that didn't quite make the cut so we don't make the same mistake!
