I tried 3 not so great products this month that I want to share so that you are aware of some cons before you go purchasing these items.
Batiste Dry Shampoo in dark & deep brown – I love batiste dry shampoo and they are my HG but unfortunately I really dislike this one. The formulation works just like the other ones from Batiste but because this one has a hint of brown in the formulation it ruined it for me. The color in the dry shampoo isn’t a very subtle but I could see it getting on my skin after I sprayed it. I had to wipe my forehead to get the brown off my face. Throughout the day when I touched my hair, I can see the color coming off making my fingers brown. When I washed my hair at the end of the day the water looked like I just dyed my hair and all the brown coloring is coming off. If you don’t mind any of this then it wouldn’t be a problem but for me its a total game changer and I can’t use this product anymore because the coloring is too much.
Dove Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo – First off this is not a bad dry shampoo when it comes to performance wise but the only problem I have with this one is the fact that I feel like I am suffocating every time I use this. The scent is not bad but it’s just very strong and pungent. I have to hold my breathe and step out of the room every time I use this just so I cant breathe. I demonstrated this to my cousin and she agreed with me as well that the fragrance of this product is way too strong. Unlike the Batiste one where I won’t be using again, I will still suck it up and work around the problem to finish the product up.
Neutrogena Hydroboost Gel with SPF – If only this product sinks into my skin as effortlessly as the night time moisturizers. Unfortunately it doesn’t and it leaves my skin feeling a bit tacky after application. It takes awhile for this product to be completely absorbed by my skin which is a problem when I am getting ready in the morning because I can’t wait 20-30min for a moisturizer to sink in before I start my makeup routine. In order to work with what I have, I’ve blotted my face to mattify my skin before applying foundation or any face makeup. It’s very weird because the consistency of the gel is very light so I am not sure why it doesn’t sink into the skin more easily. I will be using it for the time being because I don’t have another SPF moisturizer to use at the moment.
With the new products that I have tried this month it seems that I have had more misses than loves but we’re not always that lucky to find products that works for us right? If you want to see my June’14 Loves then click here.
