Giving negative reviews is not my thing, though sometimes it's just inevitable!
As much as I love discovering new products, I hate it when something doesn't perform as it should! I've become quite prudent with my "beauty budget", so anything that falls short of expectations turns me off :(
Needless to say, all three are going straight to the bin. Wasting money sucks!
Having said that, I hope this post will be helpful to those of you who are curious about those products: read on to see why I wouldn't recommend not one of 'em!
The Body Shop Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator: while I do love the Seaweed range from the Body Shop (especially the Seaweed day cream which I bought recently), unfortunately this face scrub doesn't cut it. Its exfoliating particles, although being of natural origin, are too big and too few to properly exfoliate the skin. It's so mild that I could use it both day and night as an everyday face wash- but frankly, I'd rather have a proper gel cleanser than an alleged "face scrub" to use daily.
Korres Equisetum 48h Deodorant Antiperspirant: I bought this product after deciding to try out a more skin-friendly deodorant. Well, let's just say that I'll stick to my normal, paraben-full and aluminum salts deodorants! This one is so unreliable; wear it on a heatwave and you're bound to stink within an hour! Maybe its weird smell has to do with its ineffectiveness, other than its formula? And if this wasn't enough, it's so freakin' expensive! 8€ for only 30ml is way too much money to spend on a deodorant, IMO.
Sorry Korres, you failed me with this one!
Elf Studio Matte Lip Colour, shade Natural: if I could count only one flaw of the Elf cosmetics, it would be this: they go bad pretty soon. I've had this retractable thingie for a year and it has now gone into an unusable state. What used to be a smooth lip pen with a natural matte shade has turned into a fake-looking, horribly dry lip colour. As a matter of fact, I'm seriously considering not to make any more purchases from Elf :(
So there, that's everything I currently regret buying! No more "natural" deodorants, face scrubs that don't work- and even more so, no Elf hauls for the time being...
Have you tried any of the aforementioned products?
Is there anything you regret buying, cosmetics-wise?
