Products I Regret Buying #2

No matter how much you research products before you buy sometimes there's a that don't live up to you expectations. I did one of these post a few months back (you can read that here) and I thought it was about time I did another one. 
First up I have two skincare products, the first being the Superdrug Oil Balancing Serum. I had heard a few good things about this so I thought I would give it a try since it was affordable and surprisingly the ingredients list didn't seem too bad. At first I loved how smooth it made my skin feel. However after a few days I started to notice I was getting blackheads on my cheeks and around my nose. As someone who never gets blackheads I knew it was this. The other product is the B. Pure Micellar Water, this was another product I had heard good things about as a dupe for Bioderma. The first time I used it I just assumed you would be able to use it on your eyes. Oh how I was wrong, my eyes stung like crazy for about 10 minutes. On the face I found it made my skin look red and didn't even remove all my makeup. It says it is suitable for sensitive skin but I personally don't think it is. 
Next up is a sample of the Rodial Brazilian Tan Light, first off I do like the smell of this but no matter how carefully I applied this I found it looked patchy. The full size of this is over £30 and I really don't think it is worth it. Next is the Superdrug Dry Shampoo in Away With The Fairies. I found that this really didn't do anything. The smells is okay but very overpowering and it lingers around for ages, I also found that it didn't really make my hair look clean at all.
Finally two makeup bits, the first being the MUA Pro Base Conceal and Brighten Kit, I really liked the idea of this concealer palette but there just isn't enough coverage for my liking. I'm also not a fan of the finish it leaves on my skin, it starts off matte but can look greasy throughout the day and the staying power isn't very good. Great idea but a definite miss for me. Lastly a mascara, the Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless, I like the packaging and brush of this mascara. However the product is very wet and hard to work with. I've hard this mascara a few months and it still hasn't dried up that much. 

So those are the products i've regretted buying recently. Have you tried any products recently that have been disappointing?

  1. I was thinking of trying the B Pure Micellar Water. I don't think I'll bother now, I find the L'oreal one works brilliantly!
