High-End Products I Regret Purchasing #2

I want to start off by apologizing that I have been so distant from my blog recently. I am really wanting to obtain a set schedule, but I don’t think I have really ever been able to stick to them. I do want to try, so we’ll see how it goes. 😉

I absolutely hate to talk negatively about any product or brand, because I know they work so hard at what they do. Just because none of these products worked for me, does not mean that they’re horrible. It simply means that they are not what I prefer when it comes to my personal beauty standards. Without rambling on too much, let’s get into the 5 products that I regret purchasing.

I’ll start out with the Tata Harper Smoothing Body Scrub ($70) since I talked about it in my previous post. Basically, I really just prefer my body scrubs to leave a slight oil residue on my skin after using them, and this one did not. My skin really didn’t feel more smooth after using it and this scrub definitely did not wow me. I have tried better ones that have been far less expensive. My favorite of all-time is the 100% Pure Almond Body Scrub!

To be completely honest, this Rahua Voluminous Dry Shampoo ($32) has to be the worst dry shampoo that I have EVER used. I absolutely love Rahua’s shampoo and conditioner, and their Omega 9 hair mask. This stuff smells odd and makes my hair feel like it hasn’t been washed in 3 weeks, no joke. I definitely do not recommend this at all, but if you are looking for a fantastic powder dry shampoo, the Oscar Blandi is my favorite and the One Love Organics one is my favorite all-natural one!

May Lindstrome is honestly a genius when it comes to creating skin care. I have adored almost everything that I have tried from her line… Although, I am just not a fan of the clean dirt ($60). It is a cleansing clay that is very exfoliating. It’s way too harsh for my skin, but it does smell SO good. This cleansing clay just isn’t my cup of tea I guess, but I know of people who love it!

Oh goodness, where do I start on this Whish Self-Tanner ($30)? I was so excited to try this last summer, but after applying it very carefully, I was left with the streakiest tan I had ever had. I even had to wear maxi skirts for a few days. It was THAT bad.

The scent was actually pleasant for a self tanner. It smelled faintly of coconuts! That doesn’t make up for the fact that I looked like an orange and white tiger when it was over with. What surprises me is that there are some amazing reviews of this product online! I guess I just have had a horrible experience. If you have tried this, please let me know how it worked for you!

This Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cream ($65) was on my wish list for a few months when I still wasn’t committed to using all-natural products. This cream had a lot of hype in the beauty world, so I knew that I had to try it out. When I finally did get it, I was pretty disappointed.

The consistency is fairly light, but surprisingly enough, this cream left my face looking very greasy. I even have quite dry skin and it still made me look like an oily mess. It wasn’t a pleasant look at all. This cream did moisturize my skin well, but I didn’t find it worth it. There are other creams that moisturize without the consequences (like the 100% pure one)! I tried to love this cream, I really did. I just couldn’t! The smell isn’t the greatest, but it isn’t too bad. That didn’t bother me at all. Also, I really liked the packaging! As you can tell, there were a few pros in this product, but sadly they were mostly cons.

    I find such posts very helpful. For example, I would not at this point buy May Lindström’s clean dirt, or definitely not without a tester first. I had read maybe 95% of rave reviews of her problem solver and was very tempted to get it, but luckily I asked for a tester first – and the experience was not nice, I had to conclude that my skin is too sensitive (for putting cinnamon and cayenne pepper on it). I have been thinking of Rahua’s dry shampoo too, but at this point I will not buy it I think, especially since I have problems with dry shampoos in general (be they powders or spray ones).
