I thought i'd show you guys some products that i've purchased in the past that i have since regretted buying. Now before we start, these products are not necessarily bad products, they may just be products i bought for an unreasonable price, at the wrong time or for the wrong reason.
I don't have very many because i generally give away polishes and makeup that don't work for me and i research my products online before buying them. But yeah, here they are:
Nivea Creme Tin
I originally bought this to serve as a a really moisturising hand cream but i've found this product is just too greasy for that, and the smell of the product is a bit too much for me - it's the strong scent of baby powder and flowers. I will attempt to use it up as moisturiser on drier parts of my legs but i kind of wish i hadn't bought it seeing as i don't have a use for it now. $4.99 from Priceline
Models Prefer Bronzer - 'Sunkissed'
I bought this when i was first experimenting with makeup and i really wish i'd done more research or shopped around a bit first. This bronzer is way too dark for me, even for contouring - i have no idea what i was thinking. The powder itself is also very grainy and not finely milled which makes blending it out a lot harder. I haven't used this in months so i probably will end up throwing it out. At least it was kind of cheap - $9.99
Diva Strawberry Kisses 'Lovebalm' Lip Balm
I got this from the Diva accessories store and i'm not too sure why. I had spent a while browsing the store and the saleslady had been really nice and helpful and i bought a few jewellery pieces that day. She just recommended it to me as they sat on the counter and she was so sweet i couldn't say no. I'm such a sucker. This lip balm looks bright pink but it goes on almost clear with just a hint of pink. It smells like strawberry gummy lollies and the packaging is super adorable but i wish i hadn't purchased it because i have enough lip balms already and this one just isn't that great for moisturising.
LUSH Chocolate Whipstick Lip Balm
I hate things in tubs - moisturisers, lip balm, hair products...i hate having to stick my finger into a tub/container to scoop out product and getting my fingers dirty. Having said that, i'm not sure why i bought this..i think it was just when i'd first discovered LUSH and i went a bit crazy trying everything. It's a great lip balm since it does moisturiser really nicely and it smells a bit like chocolate but again, i have too many lip balms and this was $9.95 which is too expensive for a product that is just too much of a hassle for me.
Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Pencil - 071 Pure White
Another product i bought when i was first experimenting with makeup and i hadn't done much research on this either. I bought it to line my waterline but this pencil is just too chalky and not creamy enough to be used on the waterline. I know Essence makes great soft, creamy liners and i really wish i'd tried them first. $8.50
Toni&Guy Firm Hold Hairspray
I actually bought two of these - both of which i regret - because i needed a really strong hairspray one day (i don't remember why) and i picked up two (still don't know why) of the travel minis. This hairspray is really good at holding hair in place but i regret buying two because i don't think i'll get through them both and the smell is just awful. This hairspray has a very strong chemical smell which i cannot stand, and it does leave my hair feeling hard and tacky, so i only use this before i play tennis.
Let me know if you guys have used any of these products and which products you guys regret! I'd love to hear them :)
