I’ve gone back and forth on whether to do this post or not but when I thought about the other ones I’ve read this month, I decided it’s just as interesting to hear about disappointing products as it is to hear about amazing ones. It should go without saying that I’m not posting this to be a troll, or to bash products that some people might have loved last year, they are just products which didn’t work for me.
Before Glossier took over the beauty community (read my post about Glossier here), The Ordinary was the other big brand which seemed to be everywhere all at once. I did resist the hype for a very long time for a number of reasons.
- I wanted the hype to die down a bit and see what everyone was really interested in afterwards.
- I just didn’t know what everything was – the product names are too scientific for me which was intimidating. I said in my Glossier post that I like my skincare to look clinical but actually I kinda want the names to just tell me exactly what it’s doing. If I want to look at the ingredients, I can but just keep the names simple please!
- Once I did finally narrow down what I would want, most things were sold out.
So I waited, and actually forgot about it for it a bit. Until I received an email from Feel Unique to say that one of the products I’d initially wanted was back in stock so it prompted me to revisit the range.
