Products I'm Not Feelin'

Hello there. Today's post is going to be about some products that just haven't impressed me. I usually try to find a way to like everything I buy.. But these things, no. Can't happen. If you'd like to see why I'm not having it with these babies, click below!

I'll start with these body products.

Bath and body Works Coconut Vanilla Triple Moisture body Cream- these body creams are my favorite, but this particular scent smells like cheap hotel soap :( unfortunate because coconut vanilla is usually one of my favorite scents.

Lady Gaga Fame Body Lotion- Have the perfume, love it! This lotion smells nothing like it though, more like.. Old people? A lot of times the lotion version of perfumes doesn't transfer well, in my opinion.

Maybelline Full n Soft Waterproof Mascara- Loved this a few years ago, hate it now. It did nothing for my lashes.

ELF Waterproof Eyeliner Pen- I've been using felt tipped liners recently (even though I said I hated them, they're tickling my fancy now) this one was way to rough on my lid. It has no give to it at all. Swatches beautifully on my hand. But just too rough for my eyes.

Simple Eye Makeup Remover- This just wasn't nearly as effective as some other eye makeup removers I've tried. I will probably still use it when I'm in a pinch. But I was hoping for more.

Urban Decay b6 Spray- The only reason I don't like this.. It smells like cat pee to me. What.

ELF Dramatic and Natural Lashes- I only have one of each.. These frustrated me beyond belief. I've seen girls wear them and they looked great. I couldn't even get them on. I never have problems with false lashes but these suckers really stuck it to me. Which sucks because they're really pretty lashes.

Before I go I just want to say just because these products didn't work for me, doesn't mean they won't for you! Also, not every company can make every product they make totally amazing. Some of my favorite, everyday products are from Maybelline, Simple, UD and Bath and Body Works. These particular ones just didn't cut it for me.

I hope you enjoyed this post, what are some of your recent product disappointments?

Thanks for reading!

  1. Great post. I hated the smell of that Coconut Vanilla lotion as well--so gross. And yes!! The UD totally smells like cat pee! Now I can put my finger on it haha.

  2. I love posts like this! That way I know what to stay away from haha! That's so weird about that UD spray smelling like that! Good thing you didn't purchase a full size lol!

  3. Great post! I think the scent of products is so important and I hate it if scents smell really bad.


  4. Great post :)

  5. I'd suggest using the elf lashes with a different glue-- the glue was the problem for me!

  6. I haven't tried any of these products before, so I'm glad I'm not missing out on anything. Lately I've been lucky with all the products I've bought. I'm quite content with my collection of things.

  7. Great post!!
