Products I Would Not Repurchase

This is a new kind of post for me. I’m usually raving about my favorite things, but today I wanted to share a few items I was a little unhappy with upon purchasing (and wanted to hopefully save you all some disappointment too!).


The first product was the Banana Boat Summer Color Self- Tanning Lotion in Light/Medium. I love the L’oreal Sublime Bronze line which I have written about here, but I decided to try something new and I found the Banana Boat on sale at Target. It’s supposed to be one of those gradual tan lotions, and after using it for 4 days in a row, I did not see any difference in color. It also was not very moisturizing.

The next thing I would not repurchase would be the NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer. Again, I ran out of primer and wanted to try a different one. I am usually impressed with NYX products, but I would pass on this primer. It comes out thick and  white, which is not what I was expecting the consistency to be.


It looks like lotion here, and let me tell you, it feels like it when it’s on your face. For a couple dollars less, I will stick with my favorite E.L.F Studio Face Primer.

I think the product I was most disappointed about was the Maybelline Pumped Up Colossal Volume Mascara. I have actually heard some good things about it, but I did not like it for my lashes. I ran out of my current favorite mascara, They’re Real, so in the meantime I grabbed this until I could get to Sephora. I feel like I had to apply coat after coat just to get my lashes to kind of look like they do after 2 coats of They’re Real.


I really liked the big brush too, I think it was the formula, which was super sad because I have been loving a lot of Maybelline products lately, which I’ve discussed in my last few posts.

Lastly, lets talk about the Sephora Brand 2 in 1 Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Gel. I bought this on sale, because let’s face it, you can never have too much eye makeup remover. All I will say is that is burned my eyes, and that was enough to make me never want to use it again.

Have you tried any of these products? What were your thoughts?
