It's not me, it's you.

You know those products that everyone raves about when they first come out and  you are desperate to try but some perverse sense of not wanting to run with the herd prevents you from purchasing?  The ones where the praise is still being heaped on the product months after the launch and you hear stuff like "24 are bought every nano second" and you can't find a bad review any where?  If they are stocked in Boots sooner or later you are going to have just the right amount of points to hand and you start to toy with the idea of caving in and then the brand has a promotion where if you buy a full size one you get a mini one free and suddenly it's a no brainer.

And you want to love it, you really do.  Initially you pretend that it isn't failing at a very fundamental level, that it isn't doing the thing that your absolutely HG equivalent, that costs half the price btw, that you have re-purchased over and over again, until this last time - stupid, stupid - never, ever did.  You re-read the reviews to see if anyone else ever mentioned having similar issues and they didn't so you decide it must just be you.  Then you just get used to it.  Until one day, months later, you look in the mirror and you just decide it has to stop.  You can't keep pretending that it's not happening and that you don't hate it.  It's not working and no amount of wanting it to is going to help.  And you have to say good bye, so long, do one you over-priced, over-hyped peace of poo.

Never again will I wipe big panda rings of mascara off from under my eyes.  I'm going back to my first love, my HG mascara L'Oreal Telescopic.

So, Benefit They're Real I'm sorry, your dumped.  It's not me, it's  you.

So beauty fans, do you have a product that you're slogging on with that you know you need to dump but you just can't bring  yourself to do it yet?  Or have you dumped something that everyone else raves about and secretly wonder if actually it IS you?!  Spill the beans!

  1. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was
    just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses?
    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.
