Beauty Products I Won't Repurchase!

I love beauty products! I am always willing to try something new and I am always hoping to discover something that I can use over and over and still love. In my eagerness to find products that perform and work well for me, I've stumbled upon those that truly failed and did not do anything for me. The products I will feature in this post are products I bought, tried and did not love. This is only based on my personal experience. I might have gotten an old stock or maybe something went wrong with how I used the product so please no judgments. :)

So here it goes, the beauty products I will NEVER REPURCHASE and REGRET BUYING are:

ST. IVES MAKE-UP REMOVER and CLEANSER and ST. IVES APRICOT CLEANSER- The make-up remover simply did not work! It smelled like rotten plastic and did not remove my make-up at all. It felt heavy, thick and I did not feel  clean and fresh after I use it. The Apricot cleanser was terrible too, it has soft beads that did not exfoliate my skin in any way and again the product smelled weird and it left a thick film on top of my skin. I don't understand what went wrong with St. Ives and these products as I've been using their Apricot Scrub for over 15 years and I totally love it.

Celeteque Anti-Wrinkle Ultra Hydrating Cleansing Oil- This works well if you plan to use it just to remove eye make-up, but it is not so great used on the entire face. Also not great used as an all night leave on moisturizer which they suggest. When I tried this I woke up with a very oily face, the product just sat on top of my face and was not absorbed at all.

Etude House Color My Brows- This was simply terrible! I was only able to use it for around 15 times and it dried up! I was hoping to find a dupe for my MAC Girl Boy Brow Set and this is definitely not it! It's not long-wearing and it made my brows look fake and stiff! Never again....

Skin Doctors EYETUCK Anti-bag technology- This I bought on a whim even if it wasn't cheap, and I truly truly regret purchasing it. I was interested in the scientific claims presented by the manufacturers and it failed me big time! I did not see any difference in my eye area at all even if I used it exactly as they suggested. I don't even have"major" eye bags!! I was hoping it could help with the puffiness of my eyes but it absolutely made no difference. This product is a total waste. 

Sleek Twist Up Eye Pencil- This product lasted about ten minutes where I applied it and then its gone or smudged all over my eye area. I use it as an eye shadow now but it still does not last even if I use a primer.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant- I think this product is very expensive for what it is--- colored lip gloss! The packaging is really cheap, the quality is not comparable to other brands at the same price range. Look how it sucked up all the dirt and made it stick to the packaging! I tried cleaning it but it's all there for good. Not sure why it's called eight-hour lip protectant because it certainly doesn't last for eight hours. It did not smell good and the bullet broke after just a few months. Its the worst lip product I've ever tried!

Etude House Anti Shine Mist- This product is not so bad, I just feel I can live without it. I feel its just glorified mint toner you spray on your face when you feel hot or oily. It does not mattify the face, it just gives it a wet looking dewy finish. I will not repurchase this.

Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream- My mom gave this to me, I think she got it from the Bonus set. I tried it a few times and I did not like it. It leaves me with an uncomfortable residue on my skin, rinsing it off wasn't enough. It felt a bit greasy and synthetic. The scrub granules, even though they were very tiny were a bit too rough for me.

Pond's Age Miracle Dual Eye Therapy UV- I used this religiously for around six weeks and did not see any single change or improvement in my eye area. It went on thick and it did not absorb well. Having to use a different cream for the upper and lower eye area seemed to be too tedious for me. This eye cream did not deliver its promise to firm the under eye skin or banish dark circles.

That's it, the 10 beauty products I wish I did not purchase! On the flip side you can view my favorite beauty products by clicking on this link: TOP TEN BEAUTY PRODUCTS I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT .

I hope I was able to help! :)
