Products I Would Not Buy Again

Hi blog friends!!

I find there is a tendency to only talk about products that people love instead of the ones that maybe they didn't get on with or are just down right bad! I actually quite enjoy watching and reading reviews on products people didn't like so I can evaluate whether or not I would buy them, but obviously it's a very personal thing as what doesn't work for one person might be another's holy grail! But I thought I would share a few products personally I have not got on with and some that I have just really not liked at all!

1.Carmex Strawberry Lip Balm
2.Bourjois Delice De Poudre Bronzer
3.Superdrug's Calming Facial Sheet Mask
4.GOSH Lipstick in Darling
5.Urban Fudge Iced Coconut Cocktail Hair Spray
6.Liz Earle Skin Repair Light Moisturiser

1. I used to swear by this lip balm when I was younger, the smell is amazing and I would never use anything else till I realised all it did was make my lips so sore and dry! My lips would be so dry so I would put this on them, it wouldn't sink in just sort of lie on them and them dry them out so I thought I needed to apply more! All in all the only thing going for this lip balm is the smell

2. There has been a lot of talk about this bronzer, I kind of feel like it's a love it or hate it product and to be honest I really think this product is 100% hype! The pigment is non existent and no matter how much you put on your brush or face it just does not appear! Again the only thing I like about this product is it has a nice smell and the packaging is cute as it looks like chocolate but apart from that it is a total waste of money, I find that the bronzing primer is fantastic that is definitely worth the money!

3. I usually adore the Superdrug own face masks, the are so cheap and actually really great quality, but this cloth facial sheet is really poor quality. First of all it stings like a mother *insert choice word*, I used it on a pamper night and I can assure you it felt like I was being attacked by bees rather than being pampered! Secondly and worst of all it smells horrific! It says it smells like green tea (which is one of my favourite scents), cucumber and aloe vera and it basically smells like a mix of chlorine and dirty nappies! Never again *shivers at reliving the memory*

4. I usually like GOSH products but this lipstick is all kinds of wrong. The formula is so thick on the lips it looks so funny/terrible, this colour in particular is really foundationy (new word) it looks like foundation on the lips and doesn't really have a colour.

5. I love the raspberry & vanilla hair spray from Urban Fudge, the smell, the hold, it's just a really great product so when I saw this one smelt like coconut I grabbed it straight away! This product in my opinion is HORRIFIC!!!!! Firstly the hold is so incredibly strong it makes your hair feel like superglue and super super crunchy/crispy, when I brushed it out I thought my head was going to fall off my shoulders. When you touch your hair it feels like concrete or as Bob put it uncooked spaghetti! Honestly this is the worst hairspray I have ever used, very disappointed in Urban Fudge!

6. Lastly is a product that when I first used it I loved it but as the weeks went by its promise of clearer skin was fading fast as my skin was full of spots and painful whiteheads and I simply couldn't understand why as Liz Earle is known for products that are all natural so it wasn't as if I was putting harmful chemicals on my skin, however when I read the ingredients there turned out to be wheatgerm in the moisturiser (I am allergic to wheat and this was causing the reaction) so therefore this for me was a total waste of money, I imagine this product would be great if you aren't allergic to wheat ha!

So those were just a few products I would personally not re-purchase, do you have products you personally don't like!? Hope everyone has had a fantastic day!

Lots of love
