Disappointing Products Pt. 2

Last week, I did a post with products that I found disappointing or didn't live up to hype. I had quite a few products, so I decided to split it into two posts. You can read part 1 here!
By no means am I saying these products are bad, I just felt they simply didn't work for me. That isn't to say that these products won't work for you! 

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Foundation

I think I let myself down with this purchase as I didn't really do much research on the foundation beforehand, which is something I always do when buying staple products like foundation. To be honest I didn't really like much about this foundation - it was difficult to apply because it dried super quick, then became weirdly sticky, and I found it didn't last all that well even with a primer. The lavender in the formulation irritated my skin and the scent was quite overpowering. I did find the shade selection to be fairly extensive though which is always a good thing.

Biotherm Aquasource Moisturiser

I bought this back when I had combination skin hoping it would reduce shine, yet moisturise in the right areas. I found that it didn't do a whole lot for me. My skin didn't absorb the gel very well, so my face was quite sticky for a while after application. It also contains alcohol  - irritant for sensitive skin - and it smells of it too!


I tried this out as a scar treatment on my body over about 3 months and saw very minimal differences if any. The mineral oil in it put me off using it on my face because I could tell my sensitive wouldn't enjoy it. The fragrance is very overpowering, and it is very expensive! However, I did have an ingrown hair on my leg and I used a bit of Bio Oil on it, and it seemed to clear up quite quickly. 

Have you used these products? What do you think?

  1. Its such a shame you didn't get on with the Bobbi Brown foundation, I really like it - but Lord and Berry have a foundation that is amazing!

    1. Awesome that it works for you! I was quite disappointed, normally I love BB stuff :)

  2. Oh, Bio Oil. I really don't like you either. It did absolutely nothing for my scarring. I had the same problem with the Bobbi Brown foundation too. I'm glad I'm not the only one who dislikes it!

      We are not alone! The fragrance of Bio Oil will haunt me forever!

  3. I agree with the Bio Oil! It didnt do anything for me so I stopped. I know people swear by it but after using it for many weeks I just gave up.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comments - I do take the time to read every one, and it's much appreciated!
