My Least Loved Products


Hey Guys, 


I've been having a bit of 'bloggers block' at the moment and while looking through my make up draw for inspiration I realised how many products I rarely use, and voila! This post is born. I didn't want to name this 'products least worth the hype' because I think these products just aren't for me rather than them being bad products. But I don't hate any of the products and still try to work with them, they just tend to end up at the back of my shelf collecting dust! 

First on the list is Nivea's In-Shower Skin Conditioner, I know this is a relatively new product to already be collecting dust, but it just isn't for me. Like many of you know I went on holiday a few weeks ago and I took this with me as my skin tends to end up looking and feeling like a desert when I'm away. But this did absolutely nothing for my skin and I still had to moisturise afterwards, to me defeating the point of it.

Next up is the beloved Real Techniques Stippling Brush. Although I love the Real Techniques brushes, I have never grown to love this one. I really didn't love the finish it gave my foundation and the few times I've used it with cream brushes I still haven't been wow'ed. 

The next product pains me to put in this as I love Benefit so much however Benefits Boi-ing Concealer just isn't for me. I was matched up horrifically wrong at the counter and even when I have a tan I still don't find I love it. The consistency makes it hard to work with and blend, and I feel it leaves my skin looking patchy which is not a good look. 

This is another Benefit Product however this is from the skin care range. Benefits Triple Performance Facial Emulsion. I actually have had about three samples of this for as many years and two are still unopened. This may sound slightly odd but it tastes awful if it gets on your lips! I also think it broke me out back when I tried it and since then i've always avoided it.

Finally I have a hair care product that I really wanted to love but just don't. Lee Stafford's Lightening Spray basically 'naturally' lightens your hair. Which I loved the idea of as i'm always worried about dying my hair. However it left my hair so unbelievably dry and straw-like that I was instantly put off and i'm to scared for my hair to try it again.


I hope you liked this post, let me know if they're is anything you'd like to see from my blog, and if you've tried any of these products!

    1. It's very true! Its why I didn't name it 'products not worth the hype' I think different products work differently for different people :)x

    2. I totally agree with this as I always feel offended when someone slags off a product that I've been loving just because it hasn't worked for them so I think you put this post across very well :)

    1. I did as well! I'm hoping that maybe when it's not so hot and my skin doesn't need soooo much moisturising it will work better for me :)xx
