The Worst of 2017


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.



The Ordinary | HAUL


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.

  1. I wanted the hype to die down a bit and see what everyone was really interested in afterwards.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
