Usually, I like to focus on positive reviews and products I like, but I realize that I do a disservice by not sharing the products that don’t work for my skin. So today is all about some new products I’ve tried and discarded and why…
I mentioned trying this bronzer in the spring. It’s a favorite of vlogger Olivia Jade, but it made me break out, so I switched back to my favorite Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends.
I love retinol and I love face oils, so I really wanted to love this retinol product, but for some reason, it made me break out everywhere. I had small pimples in places on my face that I’d never gotten acne before, and when I stopped using it, they went away.
This is the one Glossier product I don’t use. I broke out a little and it didn’t give me enough hydration. I use Priming Moisturizer Rich instead, which smells incredible and makes my skin soft and supple.
I really wanted to like this very popular mascara, but I didn’t. I tried it alone as well as layered over my beloved Benefit Roller Lash mascara (which I use as a curling, priming mascara instead of using an eyelash curler) but it just didn’t give me the volume, length or staying-power I desire.
As always, what works or doesn’t work for me might not be the same for you! Just wanted to be honest and show you some products that I’ve given a shot.
Have a great weekend! Love, Me
