Products That Just Didn't Work For Me

We all bought something that might have made us think to ourselves "why in the world did I even buy that?!" This post is about the products that just didn't do it for me.. I don't regret buying them.. And I'm still usin them just so I can use them up but I won't repurchase them for sure..

This product I could not continue using.. I had to throw it away.. It was too harsh with no results.. Never again am I coming near this evil thing.. Here's my mini review on it if you wanna read a lil more..

Lancome Tonique Pure Focus

I bought this to help with matify my T-zone as it contains a powder that helps control your oils.. But all it did was take my makeup off.. This has too much alcohol in it that my skin just did not like.. This product is a gimmick I reckon..

This was a total waste of money! To read my review on it, click here

I had such high hopes for this but it did nothing and I mean nothing to my pores! Yah it felt nice and it smelt good.. But made no changes to my pores or the appearance of them.. It's a totally overhyped product.. Not worth it at all.. I'm so glad I bought the small bottle.. I've had it for a while and I force myself to use it just so I can use it up and throw it away!

You know how there are some brightening serums that may not work completely well but they do lighten your acne scars/dark spots just a little? Well this didn't even do that! Such a waste of money this was.. I was better off not using this product.. Was really really disappointed with it..

Yah it gives a nice glow to the face.. Yah it has a slight tint to it the covers very minor imperfections.. Yah it's lightweight.. But this is sooo not worth it.. There are other products out there that give the same effect, with higher spf and are much cheaper.

I got this before I discovered my Lush Lemony Flutter which I adore.. I found this cream to be too thin for a long lasting hydration foot cream.. Unlike the Lemony Flutter, this did not heal my dry feet quickly.. And the smell ain't pretty..

I know sooo many people swear by this and would probably keep purchasing it for the rest of their lives.. But this isn't the greatest lip balm I've tried.. It moisturizes nicely and feels luxurious and all but my Nuxe Lip Balm moisturizes waaaaaay better.

Ahhh.. Another disappointing product from By Terry.. This foundation was the perfect shade for me.. And although it is light-medium coverage with an almost flat matte finish (which I'm not a huge fan off), I was able to work with it.. But what I couldn't stand was the way it sat and accentuated my pores! It wasn't pretty!

Many people have a love/hate relationship with this product and I am one of them.. I was so excited about this product at first but it disappointed me.. It feels light on but doesn't give me enough coverage AND it looks cakey.. I really wanted to love this.. I'm still trying to make it work for me.. But I am on the lookout for a different mineral foundation...

Hope these mini reviews help you in some way..

Have you tried any of these products? And what products do would you not repurchase?

Great post! I was really considering getting the estee lauder idealist, but now I don't think I'm going to bother spending all that money. I am definitely going to check out that lipbalm though!

Vida - I read so many reviews where it actually worked on some people.. But it just didn't work for me personally.. You can still get a sample and see if you'll be lucky with it.. As for the lip balm.. It's my HG lip balm for sure!

r.alsharif - haha glad I could be of service ;)

Michelle - awwww thanks heaps hun.. Hugs and kisses back to Brazil ;)

I'm gonna try respond to all the comments you made on my blog =)
thank you for the complements, i do love that lipcolour and it's gonna be a favorite for me this spring/summer season..

As for the mask, every skin responds diferently to diferent skincare, I did have many many blemishes when I used the mask and it helped massivly! I am gonna check out the Lush mask you talk about in you post..

and yes do try the vitamin e eye cream! it's really good!

I actually considered getting the Terry lip balm a while back, but the price point put me off.

Thank you very much! I considered buying the Estee Lauder Idealist since the lady put it on my skin and it smelt divine. Now I might ask for a sample to take home and try instead.

Have to agree with you on the clinique 3 step product. That whole range ruined my skin. It is so harsh!!
Great post!

Vanessa said...

aww I'm sad that the Clinique Even Better didn't work because I'm looking for something like that. I really like the Even Better foundation though because it's creamy but not TOO thick for me and I can use some of it as a concealer as well.

the laura mercier mineral powder is beautiful on. Im not sure how buildable the coverage is because ive only used it as a medium coverage, but the finish is amazing! It is so soft and natural looking.
