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 give 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. 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 especially 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 effect paying extra postal an getting it shipped from the US, I think this product is just soso. As it is a baked powder, every pan is different so the shade can never be the same. Neither the color suits me well nor the finish is amazingly flawless/ high-coverage (though its very thick!). I wont consider repurchasing it.
3. Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment
I purchased it from Beautybay.com and it is the smallest size available (30ml). Since last year, this kind of hair treatment oil has become very popular. Moroccan oil and Macadamia oil are the most-talked one.
I wouldnt have bought it if the company had given the ingredient list on the website. This product does contain argan oil and other natural oil but the top two ingredients are both components of silicone, which make your hair appear very nice and shiny but not nourish your hair indeed. First, I do not like hair products have silicone in general (though 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 keep using them because there is no reason to waste money and let them idle.
