For as many things we DO like in the beauty world there is an equal amount of things we DON’T like to even the score. Some of the products I list may surprise you as they work for you, or you may agree with my opinion.
Please feel free to leave a comment telling me if you agree, or disagree, or if you think I should give it a second chance-You never know, I could be using the product wrong or inconsistently and not reaching the full potential of what it is used for.
- ANY BRAND of Charcoal Pore Strips-These literally, NEVER work for me. I never see anything gunk pulled out of my pores and have never gotten any results. Recently, I had a little accident with these and ripped a small patch of skin off my nose! I will not be buying any pore strips again.
Now, you know from my prior post, I LOVE Soap & Glory products, but I just don’t seem to like the Peaches and Clean Deep Cleansing Milk. It does feel refreshing on my face, however I don’t feel as though it “melts away makeup” as the bottle claims. To be honest, I don’t feel like its doing anything at all. I am about half way through with my bottle, and I will continue to try this product and see if my opinion changes, but as of right now, I don’t foresee this face wash being a repurchase for me.
I hate to keep knocking the brand, but this Sit Tight Intense XS Special Super Strength Body Firming Serum didn’t do a thing for me-and I faithfully used this twice a day! For whatever reason, the roller made my thighs bruise, now that could be because I am super sensitive, but I figured that if it worked, I would suffer through it. I didn’t even finish the last quarter of the tube and recently just threw it out. I did try my best with this but just didn’t see any results.
Another massage rolly-ball thing. This serves absolutely no purpose to me. It was a complete waste of money. I just don’t understand the concept. I used it once and haven’t picked it up sense. I believe this was actually an impulse buy-Maybe I will give it another shot so I have a fair opinion of the product with a better understanding of its benefits and to see if there are any actual results.
This, is, by far, the most greasy face serum I have ever used in my life. It does not blend or soak into the skin at all, I felt as though it just sat on the surface of my skin. I hate the feeling of my face being wet, for example I cannot stand peel off masks of any sort or anything greasy like this. I was very disappointed with this product given the price and the brand, as prestigious as it is (or I think it is). I have started to use this in my bath as well as on my legs after bathing and I will report that it does make my skin feel soft. I will continue to use this, just not on my face.
Reader beware-the next few products may be very controversial…
Ok, I have been wanting to try Mario Badescu products for years now, however, I could not justify purchasing any of the products because of the price point. One day while shopping at Ulta, I found the mini bottles of the Enzyme Cleansing Gel and I thought “what the heck, just try it.” I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, did want to like this product…truly, but it doesn’t do a thing for me. I did not see any results of any sorts throughout my usage of this product and the thing I hate MOST about it is the smell! It has a musky floral scent which is just not flattering to me. The scent is so strong I can taste it in my mouth as wash my face. I will not be buying this again.
This product was soooooo disappointing to me-I wanted this to work so badly. I have used this multiple times and have never seen any results! For some reason I actually love the smell of this, it kind of reminds me of lemonade mixed with alcohol…I like this concept but it just didn’t work for me…has this worked for anyone? Is there anyone who truly recommends this product? At the price point this product should be doing SOMETHING for me, not just smelling good and making a cute pink color on my blemishes.
Ok, I promise, this is the last Badescu bashing product I will mention…but…what…is…this?! How is this supposed to work? This product just makes a huge mess! I understand that it is supposed to eliminate blackheads but it just hasn’t worked out for me. I have continued to try this, and I will until the bottle is gone because, truthfully, I WANT to like this product. I think its innovative and helpful and could potentially work but the application is just confusing and messy. I wouldn’t stay away from this product all together, but certainly use at your own risk.
