Beauty Products You Hate

| |

I'm sure we've all been through a few products that were all the rave but when we tried it ourselves, it was nothing but a waste of money and/or it did damage to our faces (break outs, black heads, etc).

For me, it's The Body Shop's Tree Oil line.
I've been meaning to review the line for a long time now, but I'm just dreading spending time writing about such an awful product. I used a dime size amount once a day everyday and it dried the hell out of my skin.

Definitely not paparazzi skin worthy.

So, What are some beauty products that you would never buy again? aka the products to avoid when you're in the lime light.

I agree with Elle. Nivea skincare products just don't work for me and I really dislike the smell of their products. It's supposed to be a subtle smell but I find it to smell really artificial. -_-

agree! body shop's tree oil line doesn't dry up pimples, it dries up your skin..and makes you produce more oil = more pimples.

I guess tree oil is for people who have really oily skin.

I don't think I've ever tried a Nivea facial product. Bath wash, yes, but that's about it. Now I know not to waste my money on it!

I asked this question because it's interesting to see what works and what doesn't work for others, even if we all have different skin types.

Thanks, gals!
