Beauty Boo Hoos (pt. 2)

Hello, lovelies~ I know I haven't posted on my regular schedule lately, but I promise I will soon. Just have some things to tend to, apparently. Gomen kudasai~ 

I wanted to post a summer tag, but~ lately, the weather has been nothing but rain and rain and rain. An occasional thunderstorm, even. I didn't think it would be appropriate, but I will post it soon, probably after this one. (hopefully)

In this post, I wanted to share a couple of beauty products that didn't do too well on my currently combination/oily skin type.

ZA Compact Powder
I grew up with this compact ever since I was in the 8th grade. Of course I was a tomboy back then and kept it a secret from everyone that I use powder, lol. Yes, I am that shallow. Don't judge #kthxbye.

Anyhoo, I have been breaking out from it recently, so I'm not sure if my skin is developing reactions towards it or the formulation has been changed. :(

Skinfood Red Orange Makeup Finish
Some swear by this, but for me it's just not working. The mist is to big, so it always leaves me a bit 'wet' after spraying it from a distance. My makeup didn't really lasts longer with it.

St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub
I really want to love this, but my skin disagrees in a form of a crowd of acne. I may have to try this again when it has subsided.

Olay Insta-Glowing Fairness Cream Light
I love the glowing effect it gives, but the stickiness doesn't go away even after a while. Results? Glowing skin becomes greasy skin in minutes.

Swedish Skincare System Blue Skies Extreme Protection SPF 30+
I know it is a physical sunscreen and it supposed to be thick, but I didn't expect it to be that thick. It's hard to blend and leaves a white cast like most physical sunscreen does.

Maybelline Lip Polish
I forgot the shade, but I think it was the coral-red color. The color is beautiful, but I just can't stand the shimmers.

Do you have any products that just didn't work out for me no matter how hard you try? Share it in the comments below because I would love to know. Thanks for reading and until then, I'll see you later~
