The Cuccio Apple Cuticle Remover just did not work for me at all. It has a waxy/greasy consistency. You're supposed to put it on, rub it into your cuticles and then soak it in hot water for a couple of minutes. At the end of the protocol my cuticles looked like they would have looked if I just pushed soaked them and pushed them back. Plus I then had to wait for my nails to dry a bit before applying polish.
I had heard so much about Rimmel's Lasting Finish foundation. It was supposed to be so smooth, easy to apply and long lasting. Well on my normal to dry skin it was a disaster. I got a yellow tone of this foundation for my NC25 skin. When I first applied it, this foundation looked flawless and a good color match. However, after about an hour, this foundation oxidized and left me looking orange! Not only that, but after about 4-5 hours this foundation started to crack on my skin kind of like a dry face mask. This got progerssively worse throughout the day. Though it was cheap and on sale, I still want my $6 back!
Lush Shower Jellies are the DUMBEST product on the market. They're squishy and fun looking and come in great fragrance options like the scent of one of my favorite bath bombs, the sex bomb. You're supposed to pinch off a bit, lather and use in lieu of shower gel. But these have the consistency of jello. Try holding on to a piece of jello under running water. I dare you. Your jello, just like your shower jelly, will end up slipping out of your hands and down the drain. And it cracks me up that Lush thinks this is an environmentally friendly product because it doesn't need a container. And then they sell them in unrecyclable plastic takeout containers that also look stupid in your shower. Stay away from this gimmicky product, no matter how good it smells.
I hate MAC Lipglasses. I realize I may be in the minority here, but these are a sticky mess. Sure, sticky lipglosses last longer on your lips, and the lipglasses come in a great variety of colors. But I hate the way these make my hair stick to my lips in any windy situation, and the way the product gathers in the corners of my mouth after a while. Yuck. I love MAC Slimshines and Lip Gelees so much more - too bad they're getting discontinued. MAC, you're dumb.
I was enticed to try OPI Nail Envy by the promise of stronger healthier nails. I should have read the fine print. My nails were initially strengthened, but then they started peeling like crazy if I went even a day without Nail Envy. So I stopped using it, and suffered through the ugliest peely and weak nails I've ever had while ever bit of nail affected by Nail Envy grew out. Furthermore, I got the matte, thinking it would make a better base for polish. Nope. And OPI tells you to reapply nail envy over polish every couple of days. But doing so gave me a matte finish, which I hate. Stay away from this one. It will actually mess up your nails rather than helping them.
OPI My Private Jet looks so beautiful in the bottle. It is a dark grey/black polish with hollographic glitter. And I have heard so many great things about it. Too bad that when you apply it to your nails, the glitter is no longer hollographic, or even glittery. So this polish just ends up looking like a concrete fax finish on my nails. Not pretty and pretty boring. Skip this one - there are much better OPI shades out there.
The Swiffer Sweeper Pads are useless. Completely. Useless. I love the Swiffer mopping system and got these dry pads with my Costco Swiffer set. These don't pick up anything. A regular broom and dustpan are so much more effective. I even tried using these as dusting pads for my appliances and shelving. Nope. Left dust behind. I don't have the heart to throw these away, and I have yet to find a use for them. For now, they sit under the sink and collect dust.
