I wasn't sure how this post was going to go down. But the last one i wrote a few months ago got a lot of love and i think a bad review is just as valued as a good review.
I feel bad about writing negative reviews on products I've been sent as they've gone to a lot of effort to send me a product to try. Normally if i don't particularly like a product it either goes to the back of my shelf or to my mum! However, I've decided as long as i don't say 'This product will make your face drop off' (unless it does) giving an honest review of why something didn't work for you is fine. Just because a product doesn't work for you doesn't mean if won't work for someone else. And it's also good constructive criticism for the company.
So here are my opinions on some Pr samples I've been sent recently.
Witch Blemish Stick £2.89
Firstly, I like this blemish stick. I think it does help reduce blemishes but the thing that really niggles me is the product design. At first i thought it was going to have a twisty applicator but no; you have to push the base of the product so the blemish stick comes out the top. Once that's happen you have no way of getting it back down again. So like when you twist a glue stick up too far and put the lid back on with twisting it back down - you have to do that! The product swishes in the lid and gets around the edges. Bit annoying!
Trilogy Botanical Body Wash £16.50
This is the second Trilogy product i've tried. I love shower gels that smell nice & this one does however after using this my skin felt really dry and tight. I've never had this problem with a body wash before. I just can't seem to get on well with this brand, would love to hear your thoughts on Trilogy. Comes in a nice big 500ml bottle.
Collection 2000 naturally Matte Foundation in Ivory £2.99
I normally rave about Collection's products but this was such a fail. Ivory is the lightest shade & it's extremely dark! I have quite fair skin but this is ridiculous, no ones skin is this colour! Reviewed here.
GOSH On Stage Lip Jam £6.29
I'm not the biggest lip gloss lover, but i really didn't get on well with this. The formula is really heavy and sticky. I wore this whilst having my hair down and my hair kept sticking to my lips, not nice! Although i do like the bubblegum scent.
Shizzle Lips Lip foils £12.50
Since reviewing these a few months ago, I haven't used them since. I really wanted to love these but i just couldn't get them to work. After 10 attempts it looked okay but the foil didn't cover my lips completely and my lips felt sore from trying to remove the foil and using the glue it came with.
