Not for Me #2

DSC_0868post DSC_0873post
We all make lists of products we would like to purchase just because we read so many positive reviews on them. Sadly, sometimes they don’t work out so well for us. That’s the case with this edition of Disappointing products. I’ve heard so much about these items and had high hopes but unfortunately, they’re just not for me.

The most hyped up product out of the three is without a doubt the Eveline 8 in 1 Total Action Intensive Nail Conditioner. I’ve read dozens of reviews about how amazing it is, how it does wonders to the nails although it’s super cheap. I knew that I can’t replace my beloved OPI Nail Envy (review here) with this one but I was expecting at least a little improvement in my nail condition. This product did absolutely nothing for my nails after weeks and weeks of application. Something more, when I was applying it, the feeling was as if the conditioner was going under my nails and was burning my skin every single time. I don’t know how so many girls never experienced this but I don’t think I will be trying this product again anytime soon.

I’m still quite bad at doing my eyeliner and I’m always on the hunt for a newbie-friendly liquid eyeliner. That’s how I’ve come across the Essence Superfine Eyeliner Pen. It was recommended by many girls, I love Essence products and indeed the formula of this eyeliner is pretty black which is great. However, the very tip of the liner gets dry so quickly that it makes it impossible to use it to make a fine line. After the third time, it felt like there was no product in the pen. It also smudges a bit throughout the day, so I wouldn’t rely on it. I’ve heard a lot about the Essence eyeliners but maybe I should try a waterproof one, what do you think?

The last product for today isn’t such a huge regret because I’ve seen so many bad dry shampoos that one more isn’t the end of the world. It’s also quite cheap, so I would have expected it but on to the product. I’m talking about the Balea Dry Shampoo and if you’re looking for a budget dry shampoo, I wouldn’t recommend this one. It’s pretty chalky but doesn’t do anything to keep the hair fresh, it actually makes it feel sticky and greasy looking.

These are a few products that didn’t live up to my expectations in the past couple of months. Do you have any recent beauty regrets?
