Beauty & Skincare Products I Won’t Be Re-Purchasing {September 2017}

I wrote a post just over 2 years ago on products I regretted buying which I’ll leave Here and I still dislike those products but even since then there are more products I’ve disliked so here’s an updated version on those products! There are a variety of reasons why I dislike them and some may even surprise you! Enjoy!


Garnier Miceller Water:

Technically I’ve nothing against Garnier themselves, it’s just the fact that I’ve only used this Micellar Water for so long (which I shouldn’t have) and have learned the consequences. My skin is in a terrible state. It’s dry and uneven and driving me crazy! I’ll be the first to admit, I have the WORST skincare regime, it’s literally non-existent. From using makeup wipes for years to remove my makeup after a long day to then turning to Micellar Water I need a serious skin over haul. I mentioned in the post before (linked above) when talking about the Garnier Eye makeup remover how I don’t have sensitive skin but I honestly feel that the Micellar Water is the reason why my skin has gotten so bad so if people have advice on some good skincare please send it my way!

Urban Decay Smoky Palette

It’s not the worst thing ever I know but it’s definitely not the best palette I’ve ever used. I absolutely love the other Naked palettes and when I heard recently this one was being discontinued, I can’t say I was disappointed. It’s one of those products that you can’t exactly pinpoint why you don’t like it but you just do, if that makes sense? Makeup artists will tell you that excess product fallout in eye shadows is good because it means the product is super pigmented but for me this palette is just way too much and the fallout is crazy.

Glamglow Powermud Dual Cleanse Treatment

I bought this a good while ago after giving into the hype of the whole Glamglow mask phase. The way that everyone raved about it, I thought the mask would be a miracle thing, end world hunger and bring world peace but it definitely didn’t. To say I hate it would be too much but like literally all it did when applied was make me skin tingle and heat up until fifteen minutes later when I could wipe it off. Yes, my skin felt slightly smoother afterwards but nothing compared to the way people were idolising it. Oh also, let’s not forget about the price of it, $69/€58 for a little tub of mud? No thanks, I’ve learned my lesson.

Fake Bake Tan

I love fake tan. I use it a lot and I like to stick to what I know I like and what suits me but when I received a set of this Fake Bake Tan as a gift I said I’d give it a try. Wow was I seriously disappointed. Again, I’d heard great reviews about it but I just was not happy with it. I had throughly exfoliated beforehand so it wasn’t the application that messed it up because the tan developed really patchy and was super light compared to what it said on the packaging. I personally like a dark tan so when it came out super light I was really disappointed. Whats more, I left it on overnight to develop, as I do with all tans but it still didn’t develop well so that was the end of that for me.

Essie Nail Polish in ‘Blanc’

I love Essie, I really do. I love their range of shades and they usually paint on so well but when I went searching for a plain white shade I trusted that it’d be the usual formula but of course, it wasn’t. I picked up the shade ‘Blanc’ expecting it to glide on a white colour and that two layers would be plenty, like every other Essie polish I’ve tried. Nope, this nail polish shade decides to be really translucent and needs a lot of coats to build it up and we all know that layering a lot of nail polish on top of the other is not a pretty sight. I know it’s not the end of the world, but what’s the deal with this shade in particular being a completely different formula to the others? I won’t be repurchasing.
