Never Again – The Ultimate Beauty Duds – Part 3

Hi there! Welcome to Part 3 of the Ultimate Beauty Duds. I’ve already done parts 1 and 2, and these posts were well received. So her’s part 3! 🙂

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

This Neutrogena moisturiser made my skin feel terribly dry. But Olay saved the day (and my skin).

Dolly’s Mixtures Rainbow Sherbet & Strawberry Daiquiri

These 2 Dolly’s Mixtutes shower gels were disappointing. The fragrances are best described as fizzy plastic and random soapy nothingness.

Simple Pleasures Winter Woodland Body Mists
simple-pleasures-winter-woodland-set-1
The ultimate cheap body mist collection. These are the kind of body sprays you give to a young girl to experiment with – if you want her to dislike fragrances…

I Love… Chocolates & Orange Bath & Shower Crème, Refreshing Body Spritzer

I like quite a few I Love… toiletries, but the Chocolates & Oranges products smell like cheap dish soap. Yikes!

Paperchase Cherry, Strawberry & Blackcurrant Lip Balms

These Paperchase lip balms tasted like plastic. I binned them a long time ago.

I Love… Chocolate Truffle Bath Fizzer & Yves Rocher Cranberry Cooling Effect Mask

I Love…’s Chocolate Truffle products are excellent. However, there’s one stinker – the Bath Fizzer! It smells like cardboard with the faintest hint of cheap chocolate. Not pleasant at all.

Yves Rocher’s Cranberry Cooling Effect mask is pretty useless. It doesn’t do anything at all. This is, without doubt, one of Yves Rocher’s most disappointing products.

Accessorize Paradise Eyeshadow Palette
Accessorize Paradise 01
I think the Paradise palette is extremely pretty. But of 32 eyeshadows, 16 are so poorly pigmented that they’re essentially useless. Check out my original post which includes swatches of all 32 eyeshadows – you’ll be disappoited, no doubt.

This was part 3 of The Ultimate Beauty Duds! Whilst I’m not saying that no one could ever like any of these products (some of them are still around), I found these products to be rubbish. But if you do like any of these products, that’s good for you.

Feel free to get in touch if you want to. And thanks for reading!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Cranberry Kiss Peel Off

Hi there! Today’s post is about a Christmas-themed face mask – Montagne Jeunesse Cranberry Kiss Peel Off.

This face mask is like every other peel off mask. Apply the mask, let it dry (for about 15 minutes), peel it off, and rinse off any residue.

Is the mask any good? I think this mask is quite alright. It does what it’s supposed to do, which is perfectly fine. But it’s not groundbreaking. I’ve had better face masks.

I’m also quite sure that I’ve had this mask before. It seems like this is one of Montagne Jeunesse’s older or even regular face masks that’s been repackaged.

Anyway, if you’re interested, this face mask is available for 90p at Primark. Montagne Jeunesse Cranberry Kiss Peel Off is also certified cruelty-free!

Yves Rocher 3 Min. Cranberry Cooling Effect Mask

Yves Rocher Cooling MaskHi there! Today’s post is about Yves Rocher’s 3 Min. Cranberry Cooling Effect Mask.

You’re supposed to apply the mask, leave it on for 3 minutes, and wash it off. Yves Rocher recommends the mask be used once or twice a week.

This face mask promises to refresh skin (‘radiant freshness’) thanks to its cooling effect, and to leave skin looking radiant. Does this mask deliver on its promise?

No, not really. First of all, this mask isn’t cooling. I was hoping it would feel fresh or cool, but it didn’t. Ah well…

I also didn’t notice any other effect. My skin didn’t feel or look different, so I’m not convinced that this mask does anything at all.

I will continue to use this face mask on a weekly basis. If I notice any positive effects in the future, I will let you know. However, as of now (after 4 uses) I’d say that I wouldn’t buy this mask again.

Yves Rocher’s Cranberry Cooling Effect Mask. is available as 50ml for £7.50. I got my mask for half price.
