Products I Wish I DIDN'T Buy


   Once in awhile we encounter products that promises to deliver great results. We get so excited! Our expectations are so high that we feel we are holding the "ultimate solution" to banish those zits, spots and eyebags...only to be DISAPPOINTED coz' those promises just remains as, oh well., PROMISES!

So i made a short list of some of those products that fell short on me. Here goes:

   I'm very disappointed with this expensive eye cream as I never got any results. As in ZILCH! I expected so much and didn't even see any noticeable changes. My eyes looked and felt the same. I don't even know what else to say...

   I absolutely hate my sunspots, freckles or whatchamacallit! So you could just imagine my joy when I saw a topical product at SaSa in Hongkong that promises to eliminate those annoying spots. The packaging even looks convincing. But lo and behold, no lightening or diminishing happened. In fact NOTHING happened! The worse part is this crappy product was quite pricey!

*Only Shiseido Purewhite EX (oral tablets)helped lightened those stubborn spots.

   I purchased this several months ago which should just be ENOUGH time to see any difference. As you can see with my previous Maybelline Magnum Mascara post, my lashes are STILL short and sparse. Tsk...tsk...and may I add that i'm using this until now just in case a miracle might still happen. Will let you know though. Ho-hum...

   This is one of those concealers that I knew would NEVER work on me the moment I tried it. It creased like crazy, gave me white circles, easily wears off on my oily skin...in other words just NOT for me.

   These 2 didn't work for me too. The powder looked chalky on my skin. While the liquid foundation made my oily skin look even greasier after a few hours. The good thing though is they have my right shade. But that's just about it! Believe me, I really TRIED so hard to love em' only to get disappointed each time. Sigh!  

   So there you have it, a roundup of  items that didn't work for me. Pls feel free to let me know if some of these stuffs actually worked for you. I'd like to know...

Gotta go, enjoy your day sweeties:-)

Oh no! And those do not even come cheap! Sorry to hear that even Dior did nothing for your under eyes.

Hehe you're so right Pammy, good thing i discovered La Mer eye concentrate, it saved the day

Pammy said...

You can probably buy another La Mer eye concentrate with all those products! At least you found something that works for you. :)

I know the feeling sis. Clinique all about concealer will last me forever. I can't make it works for me. It sets on my fine lines. I totally would agree with your experience. i experienced it too. it makes me so sad :,(

Rinny said...

Thanks so much for sharing this! I feel like most eye creams are a hit or miss; in my case no cream has really ever worked for me, probably because my undereye circles are genetic.

@Rinny-i totally agree, it's really a hit or miss thing, hey i never noticed you have dark circles?!
@bettzy93-the Sephora makeup might work for others but sadly not just for me, i really tried several times:-(
@CynthiaZ-you should try out Clinique concealer first at the counter to know if it will work for you or not, btw, i love looking at your uber lovely shots:-)

Rinny said...

@MINAKICHU: Haha yeah I have really bad dark circles; I try to cover them up with concealer, but they're still somewhat visible >.<
