Products I Regret Buying



I don't often get disappointed by beauty products because I read reviews before making purchases. However a few certain products have definitely disappointed me and not lived up to their expectations.

E.L.F Studio Concealer Quad
I'm a massive fan of Elf products but unfortunately this one let me down. The concealers have very little staying power and don't really 'conceal' anything. The colours are too orangey as well.

Garnier Eye Makeup Remover
I only bought this because it was the only eye make up remover Asda had when I ran out of my l'Oreal one. It does an average job of removing makeup, but it just feels so greasy on my eyes. I need to use a lot of cotton pads to get everything off.

Umberto Gianni Flirty Curls Scrunching Jelly
All I can say about this is that it didn't do its job. It just made my hair feel sticky and stiff. Didn't give me any beachy waves.

Neutrogena 8 Hour Spot Treatment
I break out pretty easily so I bought this thinking it would help get rid of the spots on only 8 hours. Boy I was wrong, this product also doesn't work at all! It stings my spots and doesn't reduce the size at all.

Garnier Face Wash
After using this my skin still feels dirty. It doesn't clean it well enough for my liking. I've never been a fan of Garnier face products so I don't know why I bought this! The smell is too strong and minty for my liking.

Body Shop Tea Tree Toner
I bought this along with the facewash, hoping it would work amazingly because I adore Bodyshop products. This toner is just way to strong for me. It burns my skin and doesn't really help with acne at all. I think this would be better suited to people with very oily skin.

Thanks for reading

  4. Interesting post! I haven't tried any of these products yet. I'm so used to people singing the praises of Elf products, it's almost weird to see someone saying they didn't like one of them. Now I know what to avoid if I ever decide to shop on their site. :)

    1. Thank you. I agree, Elf gets a lot of praise for their products and I love most of them except this one just didn't work for me. I LOVE the HD powder though. If you ever decide to shop on the site I recommend you get it along with the studio brushes. They're amazing! xx

  5. I don't like Garnier products either! and i'm surprised to hear about the body shop toner. Their products usually work great. I have dry skin so I will stay away! Thanks!

  6. I've used the body shop tea tree products & they work good for me, but I do have very oily skin! I can see it being to much for dry/sensitive skin. I'm so sad about the concealer I've been wanting to try it but the colors do look super orange & if I'm putting concealer it better be covering something ;) loved the post! Have a great Friday x

  7. I'll definitely keep all this in mind the next time I go shopping! I find reviews like this most helpful cause you pointed out specific reason why you didn't like each product. I will definitely stay away from the 8hr spot treatment, Ow, I hate things that are for acne that burn!

  15. I know what you mean about the Garnier make up remover, I have to use loads of it each time and feel like it just pushes my eye make up around.
