Wondering what some of the worst skincare products were from 2016? I got you covered! Here lies a tale of woe about skincare products I’d avoid if you haven’t already tried them.
Thankfully there aren’t too many that made the cut.
Take a look and see if you agree!
Equate Wipe the Day Away Cleansing Balm
Ah yes, Equate Wipe the Day Away Cleansing Balm! Available at Walmart this cleansing balm held the promise of being just as good if not better than our beloved Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm and at a fraction of the cost. But man, this was a hot mess. It failed to emulsify and left a big old sticky mess on my face. What was the point? I say avoid it.
E.L.F. Micellar Cleansing Water
This one ended up in my garbage can after a single use. Why? Because it STINGS eyes like crazy! One swipe and my eyes were crying out in agony and left tearing up and red after use. Thanks but no thanks.
It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream
I guess Confidence in a Cream isn’t the worst product but it sure isn’t the best either. I expected a lot from this little jar of wonder but mostly it was a fairly basic moisturizer that didn’t do much in terms of hydration for my drier skin plus, hello, it comes in a jar.
Physicians Formula Argan Wear 2-in-1 Argan Oil & Coconut Water Primer
It smells incredible but this little mist made my skin and eyes burn rather badly not to mention it doesn’t exactly hydrate but feels more like it is absorbing moisture from my skin. Skip!
Lush Papa Noel Face Jelly
It sounds great in theory! A solid jelly face wash that breaks down and lathers up to cleanse your skin. Cool and unique right? It’s awful! Sadly, most of it ended up down the drain and the pieces I did get on my face didn’t do a great job cleansing my skin. Not to mention the amount of fragrance in this is bound to be a sensitive users nightmare. Thankfully it’s limited edition.
