Not For Me
Finding out what beauty products don't float peoples boats are among some of my favourite to read/watch, a lot of people often talk about those products but I think it is just as important to talk about them as much as the ones you love too. I'm lucky enough to get to test out a lot of products and as much as I wish I could love everything I just don't and as I try and research everything before I buy it I've not come across too many duds lately.
I've been trying out a few items from Claudia Louch and absolutely love the Hydrating Mango Face Cream* and Chamomile Face Wash* but something I really didn't get on was with the Oil Free Eye Make Up Remover*. Regardless of how the product performs anyway the price point is just far too high for my tastes, I found this to be very dry in formulation and didn't remove my eye make up at all so it just aggravated my eyes. Another skincare item isn't actually a bad product, I've just recently discovered something of the same nature but for 1/10 of the price which is The Body Shop Vitamin C Reviver*, so whilst I did actually like the Dr Perricone MD Vitamic C Ester* I think you can save a ton of money by opting for the Body Shop option.
After my rave about Jurlique last week I thought it was important to show you something that I didn't quite get on with from the brand and that is the Jurlique Intense Recovery Mask*. I just didn't find this did anything for my skin and even though it is targeted for age repair it didn't seem to help with any impurities I had either. A product I had seen pop up on blogs 2/3 years a go were the MeMeMe Boho Balm*, the formulation of this doesn't work on either my cheeks on lips as it is incredibly dry and even though it smells lovely it just not something I can get a use out of. I wish the colour of the Jelly Pong Pony 2-1 Eyeliner & Shadow* worked for me as I really do think the formulation is lovely but that bronze shade on my eyes is just a complete no go.
Nail polish is one of my favourite beauty products to buy, it is just so much fun discovering new formulations or picking pretty new shades up. Having heard good things about the L'Oreal Colour Riche polishes I picked up a couple of shades from their pastel range, I love the lilac but this sea foam green kinda shade just doesn't work for me. It was heralded as a dupe for one of my all time favourite colours Essie Absolutely Shore but it appears to be just a little off and it just looks so unflattering on my hands. Another shade that doesn't work me is this blue from Miss Sporty, the formulation of this brand did really surprise me and I thought that this shade would look so pretty but it just doesn't. It saddens me to say that a Liz Earle product disappointed me as it was one of my all time favourite brands. When their S/S nail collection* popped through my letter box I thought the shades were absolutely beautiful but I found the formulation to be terrible. It took 4 coats to get an opaque finish and then to say how it took me to apply the shade it chipped within hours which was seriously dissapointing.
