Beauty Boo Hoos part 1

“Disclosure: I bought this product with my own money. I am neither affiliated with this company nor am I being paid to write this post. My opinions are honest and my own.” Complete disclosure here 

Hello, lovelies~ I posted this picture yesterday on my tumblr account, so it may be familiar to some of you who have visited that blog. To those who tumblr, mine is, if you wanna follow because I intend to keep this mainly beauty, not daily updates of my life and gibberish, lol. 

As the title suggests, these are the beauty products that doesn't work for my skin. Starting off with the Himalaya Herbals face wash that doesn't dry my face out afterwards, but broke me out within two uses. Too bad, I really thought it can replace my Hada Labo Shirojyun face wash.

The second item on the list is another face wash that didn't seem to please my-ever-so-sensitive-and-picky-skin, purity by philosophy. Nearly everyone loved this face wash, some even swore by it, but it broke me out badly on my cheeks and near my eyebrow. 

Moving on from face washes and how badly they break me out, let me present to you the all new miracle oil-gel from Maybelline. Their words, not mine. I really want this to work, but I just don't. Despite having the term 'oil' in its name, this is anything but that. It makes me drag my fingers across my face to get the thing to work. Disappointed.

Even though I can extract blackheads by myself, sometimes I like to relax and use 'gimmicky' products in the hope that this would different than its 'siblings'. I give you, Tony Moly Egg thing-a-majick. It's supposed to help clear blackheads from the pores, but this gave me a single, huge acne on my cheek. *sad*

The last items is a brow and lash gel from Essence that I thought would really hold my brows in place. Nope. It didn't. My brows are wet, though.

I rarely do full review on a product that doesn't work on me because it is tiring to do such a negative post, lol. Sometimes I would do it if that product is so bad that it rages me and drives me to write a review on it. Remember, if these things work for you, good. So happy for you, truly.
