Monthly Misses: December 2021

Another month has flown by.  Now's the time to take a look back, and sound off on the products that just didn't work for us.  It could be a fragrance that didn't last, a gloss that was gloppy or a spray that didn't hold.  We want to know - b/c it'll help us make informed decisions and we can compare and contrast our experiences.

@Titian06 Awww sorry it didn't work out for you.

Re: Monthly Misses: December 2021

Aww, thatโ€™s too bad! I actually LOVE gardenia, and had hoped for more of it from this one, but I love it nonetheless!! Sorry it did not work out for you. @Titian06 

Re: Monthly Misses: December 2021

@Titian06 Glad I'm not alone but also sorry it was a fail for you as well. 

Re: Monthly Misses: December 2021

Since I'm late to the party for this thread this year I guess I'll include some earlier year fails (I hope that's okay since it's the end of the year).


My biggest fragrance fail is TOM FORD Black Orchid Eau de Parfum Fragrance something about this is atrocious with my body chemistry and from initial spray it gives me a headache. 

Re: Monthly Misses: December 2021

I have a couple misses from this month but the #1 biggest fail (of the entire year honestly) has to go to Herbivore Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Smoothing Serum 1.0 oz/ 30 mL gave me the worst breakout ever right before the holidays. I wanted to like it too because it's so cute and because I love the brand! What a let down ๐Ÿ˜•


Another fail from this month is the Bumble and bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Shampoo I got a sample of it and it definitely did not measure up to the quality I expect from their products especially in the Invisible Oil line.




Re: Monthly Misses: December 2021

Oh what a bummer the BB Hairdressers Oil Shampoo didn't work for you @QueenMarceline . It's my go to, standard shampoo and conditioner set. 

Re: Monthly Misses: December 2021

@missjeanie I loved the mask and the invisible oil primer is my go to. I just think the shampoo and conditioner is just not enough hydration for my frizz mop. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Monthly Misses: December 2021

@QueenMarceline  I loved the original version of the Herbivore bakuchiol, but the new reformulated version is terrible. 

Re: Monthly Misses: December 2021

@faeriegirl I don't think I got the old one, that's for sure. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Monthly Misses: December 2021

@QueenMarceline @I love the invisible oil conditioner, but agree the shampoo is definitely just average !

Re: Monthly Misses: December 2021

@Kim888 I like the conditioner, the mask and the heat protectant/primer from that line. Very disappointed in the shampoo.
