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!

I Love… Chocolates & Oranges Refreshing Body Spritzer, I Love… Gingerbread Refreshing Body Spritzer

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 I Love… body mists that I picked up a few months ago – I Love… Chocolates & Oranges Refreshing Body Spritzer and I Love… Gingerbread Refreshing Body Spritzer. I forgot that I had these body mists, but I remembered that I bought them when I saw they were still on sale (Primark) the other day. To make a long story short… I went looking for these two body mists in my stash – and I found them! And now that I’ve tested them, let me tell you more.

I Love… Chocolates & Oranges isn’t great at all. It smells cheap and synthetic – it’s borderline unpleasant. But since I hated the matching shower gel, it’s not surprising that I didn’t like the body mist.

I Love… Gingerbread smells like gingerbread! Whilst I’ve never liked gingerbread, I have to say this body mist smells exactly like the baked treats. If you like gingerbread, and if you’d like to smell like it, give this body mist a try!

Like I said, these 2 I Love… Refreshing Body Spritzers are available at Primark. My local store isn’t the biggest Primark store, but they have lots of different I Love… products (shower gels, body sprays, etc – different fragrances) for £1 each!
