Products I Regret Buying

This doesn’t happen often! I usually do research on things before I buy them, but sometimes, they just don’t turn out to be what I expected.

Let me know if I am maybe using these wrong because people seem to love them!

Anyway, here they are, the products I do not like and regret purchasing.

First up, the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Sweet Candy.

So, first off. I love the color and packaging. You get a ton of product, and the smell is amazing, like gummy bears. BUT, I just don’t like sticking my finger in there and applying it to my lips that way. I just don’t. I prefer a lip balm in a stick form. But that was my mistake, I clearly knew it was in a tub when I bought it.

The thing is, it isn’t moisturizing! I honestly think it makes my lips chapped. For a mask, it’s very thin and doesn’t stay on long at all. It just wasn’t it for me. I prefer my Burt’s Bees over this.

Ugh. This Ilia Powder.

This stuff is very pricey, but it does come in a large tub. It is a translucent powder that is supposed to give a soft focus blurring effect. For me, it doesn’t blur. What it does do is give me a huge white cast no matter how little I apply. It really leaves my skin so incredibly dry, and doesn’t give me a skin like finish.

I also really don’t like loose powder, but thought I would give it a go because of all of the positive reviews. I prefer the Hourglass pressed powders or the BM Pressed Mineral Veil. Those blur and don’t leave a white cast.

Next up, the NARS Creamy Concealer.

Years ago, I loved this concealer; it was my go to. I recently purchased it again because I remembered how much I used to love it! I’m not sure if the formula has changed or what, but this is a lot thicker and drier than I remember – and this is coming from a Tarte Shape Tape girl. I was hoping for a change from the shape tape, something lighter and with a hydrating finish. It was just way too drying.

A nail polish flop, OPI Bubble Bath.

The more I wear this nail color, the more I don’t like it. Unlike other pale pink colors that I own, this color really leans…warm? It has kind of a orange-tan look to it rather than a pale pink. I just don’t like this, and I regret buying it since I never reach for it.

Lastly, this Ordinary mask.

I don’t have sensitive skin, but this stuff BURNS. I get that it is a peeling exfoliant, but I can’t even leave it on for a full minute because it hurts so bad! I have read such great reviews on it, and I think the problem is that I have dry skin. It has such good ingredients and I love exfoliators, so I was sad this didn’t work out!

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think of them? Let me know!

Thanks for reading xx

  1. I’ve considered the lip mask too, because I’ve seen a lot of good reviews. But I was also thinking– I keep a glass of water at my bedside…so wouldn’t it wash off the mask?

    I agree. Bubble Bath is a weird color. I’ve never bought it, but I’ve seen the swatches. It’s like…what does it want to be? A pastel, or a neutral? It combines both— and not in the good way. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yes, the water does wash it off throughout the night. By the morning there isn’t anything left, and when I use my regular chapstick it’s still there in the morning.

      Yes exactly about the bubble bath! It is just a weird color, and not flattering on me. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! 🙂
