1. Clinique 3-step
I am glad that Clinique is generous on giving out samples, so I know its products do not work for me.
The clarifying lotion 2 (toner) has high content of alcohol and it is way too strong and irritating for my skin.
The dramatically different moisturizing lotion is even worse. It didnt really bring hydration but broke my skin out. From what I know, the only products can do that are this clinique moisturizer and olay total effects (which belonged to my mum actually but i used it once , my own fault lol).
2. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick
I dont mean Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick is a bad product. However, considering that it costs $85 in Australia, I just dont think the product is impressive enough to justify its exorbitant price. I am lucky to purchase this item from a blog sale, but i will not buy it again if i need to pay the full price.
3. Laura Geller Balance-and-Brighten
Emilynoel83 (my favorite youtuber ever!) raved about this product and I was sooo tempted. Spending so much extra to get it shipped from the US, I think this product is just alright. As it is a baked powder, every pan varies. Neither the color suits me well nor it gives amazingly flawless finish/ high coverage. I think it looks kinda cakey on my dry skin and I wont consider to repurchase it.
3. Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment
I purchased it from Beautybay.com and it was the smallest size available (30ml). Since last year, this kind of hair treatment oil has gotten a lot of raves. Moroccan oil and Macadamia oil are the most popular ones.
I would not have bought it if the company had listed the ingredient list on the website. This product does contain argan oil and other natural oil but also a lot of chemicals, which make your hair appear very nice and shiny but not nourish your hair as well and direct as natural products can. First, I do not like hair products with silicones in general (though a small amount is acceptable). Second, this little bottle cost $12 and I just dont think its worth it X_X
Though these products do not really surprise me or make miracles, I will try to finish them and not waste my money :p
