Unloved Products | #1

I think we've all at one time or another fallen into the blogger hype. Sometimes you'll find its worth it, and others not so much. The two products I'm going to talk about today aren't terrible products - I just don't find myself reaching for them often for various reasons. But that's not to say what doesn't work for me won't work for you!

So here goes, step up my two most unloved products..

Origins VitaZing Moisturiser
I fell well and truly into the blogger hype for this one! I've had it for just over a year now and I think I've used it maybe 5 or 6 times. I bought this in the hopes that it would give a natural glowy/energised look to my skin. The problem, you ask? It's 'sheer tint release' doesn't quite match up to my milk-bottle white skin. If I was a few shades darker I think I'd probably fall in love with this product like everyone else seems to have done! So a word of warning to you fellow pale girls - this product might not be for you.

YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat
Let me start off by telling you that me and this foundation have a love/hate relationship. I absolutely LOVE it when I first apply it. It gives the most perfect dewy and radiant finish to the skin. It's beautiful! It's a dream to apply and it's really easy to blend. The problem? Give it a few hours and my perfectly radiant finish has turned into a patchy mess. It just doesn't stay put. When I say this I mean it literally slides off my face. I don't have incredibly oily skin so this one just baffles me. Has anyone else had this problem?

What products of yours go unloved?


  1. What a shame the Touche Eclat foundation isn't all good! I use the concealer/highlighter/well, the first Touche Eclat thing that came out and it stays put nicely
