Products I Regret Buying #3

I've been meaning to do another products I regret buying post for a while but it takes me a while to get enough products that i'm not a fan of; which is probably a good thing. Some of these products i'm a bit on the fence where as other I really just don't like.
Products I Regret Buying #3
Revlon Lash Potion Grow Luscious Mascara
Nivea Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover - £3.59.
This is one that I can't make my mind up about. It does remove eye makeup but I found my eyes looked a little red after use and they felt a bit dry. It didn't remove everything and it doesn't work as well as the L'oreal Absolute Eye and Lip Remover is far better and doesn't irritate my eyes at all.
Revlon Lash Potion Grow Luscious Mascara - £9.99.
I mentioned my dislike for this in my Brand Focus on Revlon. It looks okay when you first apply it; it adds some length and volume, nothing too dramatic. However I find it flakes under my eyes by the end of the day which rarely happens to me with other mascaras. I do like the packaging but the mascara is a pretty big miss for me. The original Grow Luscious mascara is really good though and I would recommend that one.
Yes to Tomatoes Daily Clarifying Cleanser
Yes to Tomatoes Daily Clarifying Cleanser - £6.99.
I was so excited when this range finally came to Boots so I decided to try the cleanser from the combination skin range. This cleanser is actually nice to use; it's gentle on the skin and isn't too drying but it has such a strong scent to it. I'm not a fan of skincare products being overly scented and this is so strong it puts me off using it. It's a strong floral scent which was really surprising as I thought this brand was meant to be more natural.
Herbal Essences Uplifting Volume Dry Shampoo
Toni & Guy Volume Plumping Whip - £7.19.
I was excited when I got this in a beauty box over the Summer but after using it a few times I just can't get along with it. My hair is fine and therefore gets flat easily. You are meant to apply this on towel dried hair and then heat style to give body and movement. My problem with this is that I could really feel it in my hair which I can normally get past if it works but I just found it didn't do anything apart from making my hair look a bit limp which is the opposite to what it's meant to do.
Herbal Essences Uplifting Volume Dry Shampoo - £2.99.
This is another product I was really excited to try, I love the fact that other brands have started bring out dry shampoos and this once claimed to add volume, we I need, and smells so lovely. The positive thing about this is it doesn't leave a powdery residue in the hair but it really doesn't do anything! It doesn't help my hair feel clean or add that much volume to my hair. I keep trying to like this but it's just not that great which is a real shame.

So that's the products I regret buying recently. I tend to read up about a product before I buy it but sometimes products just not that great. Have you bought any products you regret buying?
