Never Again – The Ultimate Beauty Duds – Part 5

Hi there! I’ve already done a few posts to tell you about some of the beauty products I didn’t like at all. But let me tell you about a few more products that I hated! 🙂

Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest Collagen Jella Pack Mask
elizavecca-collagen-jella-pack
This mask is simply awful. It makes your skin feel like it’s covered in lard. In addition, the only way to remove the mask is to rub it off. This causes the mask to flake big time (but there’s nothing else you can do) which means that you have to wash your hair after you’ve used this mask. A truly awful product!

TRESemmè Colour Revitalise Vibrant Colour Protection Conditioner – I didn’t like this conditioner at all because it made my hair go greasy quickly. And the “fragrance” was borderline unpleasant. The shampoo was OK, though.

Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Charcoal Masque – this mask contains crushed walnut shells which are unsuitable for the face. Awful!

L’Oréal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Masque

L'Oreal Fibrology Masque
I could write an essay about why I didn’t like this hair masque, but I won’t. In summary, it took 24 hours for the thickening effect to kick in, and the product made my hair feel crunchy. 😠

The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus Body Lotion – this body lotion smells really bad. I have to admit I’m not the biggest fan of lotus or water lily scents, but this is the worst lotus “fragrance” I’ve ever smelled in a product.

L’Oréal Elvive Smooth & Polish Thermo Detangling Spray – it doesn’t detangle hair, but it seems to straighten and flatten it, so if you have wavy or curly hair, this spray just ruins your hairdo…

Boots Being By The Sanctuary Spa Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom Body Mist – one of the cheapest fragrances I’ve ever smelled. I tried to give it away, but none of my colleagues wanted it…

Superdrug Red Colour Conditioner – this stuff was anti-conditioning! Truly awful! Guess what, it’s been discontinued!

Superdrug Optimum Phyto Brighter Triple Action Illuminating Black Moisturiser

This moisturiser left a grey residue on the skin. I can’t believe I actually finished it…

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation

One of the worst foundations I’ve ever tried. Poor coverage, but cakey look, feels super silky, but impossible to blend. Rubbish!

This was part 5 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!

The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus Body Lotion & The Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose Body Lotion

Hi there! I bought 2 The Body Shop body lotions in early January – Fijian Water Lotus and Atlas Mountain Rose. They were on sale for £2 each, and I just couldn’t resist. 🙂

I tried The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus body lotion right away – and I didn’t like it. I think the fragrance is very annoying. It’s a mix of lotus and paper with a hint of Play-Doh. The lotion smelled rather faint when I applied it. But, unfortunately, the strength of the fragrance seemed to pick up. After a few hours the body lotion had stunk up my top, my cardie and my scarf. I gave the body lotion away the next day.

The Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose body lotion is much nicer. I’d describe the fragrance as a cool “glycerin rose” with a hint of tea. The fragrance is simple, but it’s definitely pleasant and wearable. I like it. I really like it!

Two things about the formula – these two body lotions aren’t the most nourishing body lotions out there. However, they’re absorbed quickly, and they don’t feel too sticky which is great if you’re in a hurry.

The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus and The Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose body lotions are available as 250ml.
