I like to post positive reviews more than negative ones and I put a focus on that, but what about products that left me with an impression of "MEH" and "BLAH"? I believe that it can be useful to someone somewhere to read about negative or neutral experiences others have had with products so are some of these products that didn't quite do it for me:
Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex
Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex is one of those products that had nothing positive to offer me. I got this product in my June Glossybox and it was a 7ml sample which did last a little while. I applied it to the entire face a few times and found it OK. It had a grainy texture when applying which was weird and is perfumed, not especially pleasant but perfectly tolerable... This product is NOT a moisturizer and cannot replace a person's moisturizer so this was a huge negative before even with the hope that it could work for wrinkles...
Note: I don't have mature skin so it might not have been the right product for me to to be trying, but I do have some small lines on my forehead and around my mouth which bother me and make me feel like I have wrinkles. I thought it could have a chance at helping these tiny lines so after realizing that it was bad as a moisturizer, I only applied it to these areas, figuring I could go the full 14 days they say will make the difference.
I didn't notice a difference in these lines. Left me with a huge impressive of BLAH about this product. Completely useless for me. It could possibly work for someone with deep wrinkles and in full honestly, it's deep wrinkles that it is supposed to help with in 14 days.
Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo
I saw this product on special last week at Loblaws and since I don't know much about argan oil except that it's supposed to be good, I picked it up. I am not loyal to any shampoo and almost every shampoo I've tried has not impressed nor disappointed. Shampoos and almost anything hair doesn't interest me much so I bought this expecting close to nothing. I expected it to do something more than my cheaper shampoos but nothing spectacular.
Instead of meeting my low expectations, it bombed completely and disappointed me. Now that is some (bad) achievement!! It left my hair dryer than normal and just not good. Simply, I cannot recommend this product in any sort of way. I don't imagine what good it can do to anyone's hair when it dried up my oily hair and couldn't even do as good as the regular brands of shampoo I normally use (like Herbal Essences, Avon, Fructis, Head and Shoulders, etc) Only thing I can think of us that with the conditioner it might be different, but I'm not used to using any because of my oily hair.
Neutrogena naturals purifying facial cleanser
This cleanser was promising! I like natural products as much as possible so when I read that this cleanser doesn't contain parabens, dyes, phthalates, petrochemicals or what they call "harsh chemical sulfates", I was glad to try it! Especially with a pump like that, it would be easier to use in the shower than my tube one by Aveeno that I like.
My dislike for this product is more subjective than the other two. THE SMELL, for me is just PUKEPUKE! I hate it so much that I cannot even tolerate it for the 30 seconds it takes to wash my face and rinse it in the shower. My husband uses it now.
Other thing I wonder is why it foams? I wasn't expecting it to since it's supposed to be all natural... Is it "harsh chemical sulfates"? They have some, but they are not as harsh? I'm not sure and I'd love to know! Because I was under the impression that natural cleansers did NOT foam.
