Regreted Purchases

I've always shared products I love but I have never talked about products that I regret buying. Just because these products didn't work for me doesn't mean they don't work on anybody. I am disappointed with how these products worked or didn't work but I feel that I should share it all the same.

Lee Stafford Coco Loco Coconut Dry Shampoo
This did absolute nothing for my hair and I actually think it made my hair more shiny and nasty looking. It states that it fights oily roots, refreshes, revitalises, gives light texture, gives light volume and great coconut fragrance but to me it did nothing and it doesn't even smell like coconuts. I was really disappointed with this dry shampoo as I did a lot of research trying to find a new one that I would like and that didn't break the bank either. It is worse than Batiste Dry Shampoo in my hair and that's saying a lot.

Soap & Glory Total Drama Clean Makeup Remover
I bought this to spot clean my eye shadow brushes and it works perfectly for that but I used this micellar water to remove my makeup and it makes my skin feel so dry and tight. I have normal skin so maybe if you have oily skin it may suit you better but for me no. It doesn't remove eye makeup well either and if you have the misfortune of getting it into your eye well it's painful. I thought it would be great to have when I want to fall into bed and want a simple one step process. It works perfectly for spot cleaning my brushes but I will probably find one I can use to remove my makeup too.

Maybelline Big Eyes Volum' Express Mascara 
I don't have a problem with the formula for this mascara, it's the Upper lash wand. It is awful, it clumps my lashes together and makes them look straight and horrible. The lower lash wand is grand as it coats my bottom lashes perfectly and the formula lasts. For €13.50, it's not worth it just to use one side that you can simply get by itself for much cheaper.

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation in Light Porcelian
This foundation is the worst I have ever tried out and I regret buying this so much as I can't make myself wear this as it is awful. This foundation is a mousse and is very hard to blend and after 2 uses your brush looks like it hasn't been washed in 2 years.

Left: Rimmel Match Perfection
Right: Rimmel Stay Matte
It has a different undertone compared to Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation and sinks into any lines and gathers around dry patches and spots. I feel that it never sets on my face and one wrong turn half my face could have slipped off.

PS Purifying Cucumber Peel Off Mask
I talked about this in my New In Beauty post recently and I talked about how I wasn't a huge fan of it. It didn't smell of cucumber all I could smell was chemicals. It was nice enough until it hardened and it was time to peel it off and boy was it painful! The mask tugged on all my spots and every single baby hair. I felt as if I decided to wax my face. Not all of it came off either as I had to use a cleanser and then an exfoliator to try to remove the last stubborn pieces. It was only €1 from Primark so I am not really complaining about how I wasted a whole pile of money but if it was more expensive I would be a little annoyed.

What products do you regret purchasing?

Thanks for being awesome,
