Products not Worth the Hype

20161105_090317 edit.jpg

I have to admit, YouTube made me buy many beauty products! If you’re a YouTube fan like me, you know the power of Vloggers and all their beauty favorites. In my case I bought many beauty products and after giving them a chance, I realized that I was truly disappointed and unimpressed.

Before I begin listing the products, I need to mention that the products listed below didn’t work for me, but they might work perfectly well for you. Each person reacts differently to products and what works for you might not work for me.

1- Origins Charcoal Mask

This product has been a YouTube favorite for years and years. This summer, one of my blogger friends (Hi Aline) was in California so I asked her to get me this mask from Sephora. This mask is not terrible and I will probably still use it; but when you watch or read all the tremendously positive reviews on this product, you expect it to do much more, and in my case I wasn’t super impressed.

2- TRESemme Dry Shampoo

To be completely honest, before diving into the world of YouTube I didn’t even know Dry Shampoo existed. The reason is we don’t easily find Dry Shampoos in supermarkets so it’s just a product that you can easily not hear or know of. I have greasy hair, so when I heard of Dry Shampoos I knew I had to buy one. After giving this product so many chances, I finally decided that they are just not made for my hair. Every time I use it, my hair gets super greasy, it’s really embarrassing haha!

3- First Aid Beauty – Hydra-Firm Sleeping Cream

This is also an other SUPER popular product/brand on YouTube. I don’t want to say I hate the brand because I’ve only used this product, but I can say that this sleeping cream did absolutely nothing to my skin, and for that reason I am not really impressed. I really do want to give their face masks a try, and once I do I will update you with my honest opinion. I also bought this product from Sephora California (Thanks Aline)

4- John Frieda Frizz Ease Touch-Up Cream

John Frieda is also a beloved brand online so I decided to give this touch-up cream a chance since I suffer from frizzy hair. This is also a product that has done absolutely nothing to my hair, the only thing it does is make my hair smell nicer, but other than that it’s useless in terms of eliminating the frizz. I am currently using the touch-up cream from Ultra Doux, I am not IN LOVE, but I have to admit it’s reacting better with my frizzy hair.

Which products did you regret buying?

      • I’m currently using John Frieda’s Brilliant Blonde S&C (just to see if there’s a diff between it and the Brunette version, I self-test almost everything we sell) and it gives my hair decent volume without crazy frizz. There’s also a frizz-ease serum but I have yet to see the need for it. Infusium is pretty effective though. If you’re in need of a tour guide in the hair care section at Wesley’s, let me know 😉
