Products I regret buying
Because I am a product and makeup junkie, I do end up with many things that I regret buying. I thought I would do a blog post on it. Sorry for the stock photos of everything.
Chanel HYDRAMAX + ACTIVE NUTRITION
I was so happy when I bought this as my face was very dry because of another products I had been using (also listed in this post) and so when I switched this, I thought it felt lovely and would sooth my skin. Sadly, tuned out to be a big expensive mistake. Completely dried out my skin and left it looking horrible. The texture and everything is lovely and feels very rich so I thought it would be okay but I guess my skin didn’t agree with the ingredients. This really shocked me as my skin is dry but not sensitive. Just not for me sadly. However, as it is so expensive I am using it on my feet so I can use it up and it won’t go to waste.

Chanel HYDRA BEAUTY Serum
So I bought this along with the cream, thinking that they would both work to help my skin. This just did nothing at all. Didn’t make me skin any brighter or nicer looking. Basically it was just useless and expensive. I have no idea what to do with this and I know that even though I love Chanel makeup their skincare range does not suit me at all.

Clarin’s Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil
Oh dear this completely dried out my skin. It’s a lovely facial oil and smells divine but didn’t not work for my skin at all. I had dry patches and peeling skin after using this. Very much regret buying.

Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette
I am so shocked at including this in here as this was something I really wanted and went to huge lengths to get. It’s not something I regret buying as the colours in the palette are lovely, it’s just that the shimmery eye-shadows colours pay-off is dreadful. I applied some of the Caramel Sparkle Eye (the darker sparkly one 4th from right) and you couldn’t even see it! Not even a bit of glitter. Considering how expensive it was I was very disappointed. The matt colours however are lovely and I do use this palette, however compared to the Naked 2 palette or even the Sleek makeup palettes this just pales in comparison.

My skin now is back to normal and I will do a blog post on that. In the end, I didn’t go back to Pai as it’s very difficult to get as you need, as you need to buy online. I decided to use Neal Yards products (amazing). Full blog post on reviewing all the products I have bought from there coming up.
