If you’re a bargain shopper like me, at times it’s hard to resist a good deal on a product, even if you don’t need it. You see all the signs BOGO FREE, or 50% off, or Limited Edition…etc, and it’s hard to resist buying it. As much as I love drugstore shopping, I’ve come across a few drugstore products over the years that I completely regret buying. The following products are items that I purchased at drugstores such as Walgreens, Wal-Mart, and Target, as well as discounted stores like Big Lots.
Two other products that I was very disappointed in are Sally Hansen Moist and Matte Lip Color, and NYC Green Cover Stick. The lip color has such a beautiful color to it, and when applied on a finger or hand it seems so amazing; however when I applied this product on my lips it goes on very chalky. Initially I thought maybe my lips were dry, but this problem occurred each and every time I used this product. The Green Cover Stick (like the Sally Hansen concealer) I had such high hopes that it would be able to cover up or neutralize any redness in my face, but it is so hard to blend in, the green color didn’t blend in very well with my skin. All it really did was show up as cakey and rather than neutralize the redness it just made my face look green and dry. Luckily both these products were purchased at fairly low prices less than $4 bucks, but I definitely will not be buying them again nor recommend them to anyone.
The last product I regret purchasing is the Rimmel Stay Matte Clarifying Foundation. I read so many reviews and saw videos of people raving about this product – which it is a great product. It matched my skin color perfectly; it blends in very well, looks very natural yet provides light to medium coverage. However, I completely dislike this product because it broke me out. Whatever ingredients this product has, it clogged my pores and gave me a bunch of pimples. I was so bummed out because I’ve been eying this product for months, finally Target had it on sale, for $2 or $3 bucks and I grabbed it without hesitation – however it will now be going into my trash (unfortunately).
