Monthly Misses: November 2021

Another month has gone by, and it might have been filled with some beauty misses.  This is a place for us to reflect on which items just didn't live up to expectations.

@SportyGirly125  I didn’t like the 54 Thrones butter at all, it was way too greasy.

Re: Monthly Misses: November 2021

@faeriegirl did you try them all? 

Re: Monthly Misses: November 2021

@lmaster  I tried the Hibiscus & Rose and the Blue Tansy and chamomile. I didn’t like either scent.

Re: Monthly Misses: November 2021

@faeriegirl thank you! That seals it for me trying different scents

Re: Monthly Misses: November 2021

@faeriegirl Good to know. 

Re: Monthly Misses: November 2021

I tried Bioderma Sensibio makeup remover, and it was a let down for me.  A lot of times I will wash my face when I get home from work.  Most of my eye makeup is removed, with just a little bit remaining by the time I wash my face before bed.  So, I tried it twice this way, and my eye makeup didn't budge - not even a little.  I thought this would be easy for this product but it turns out that it wasn't.  So, I didn't even try it on full eye makeup.

 

I will say that I liked the texture, though.  It was watery which I found comfortable.

@greeneyedgirl107 I don’t feel like you can use it alone to cleanse the face. I do like to double cleanse with it but cannot rely on it alone. 

Re: Monthly Misses: November 2021

I was disappointed with the Tula cult classic cleanser that I received as a birthday gift from Ulta. It smells so strong...and not in a good way, but in a cheap, outdated, overpowering perfume kind of way. But, I ran out of the Glossier cleanser that I keep in the shower and thought I'd try out some sample cleansers I had around. Time to keep moving through the sample stash.

@txcatx 

Tula is probably my favorite cleanser of all time, but yup, the scent is a turn off for many! I don't catch perfumey, but it's some weird herbal-ish but not quite herbal scent to my nose, it's definitely strange. It does such a good job of cleansing my oily face without stripping it dry that I've learned to tolerate the scent, perhaps have even become noseblind to it, so I don't mind it anymore, but I actually noped out of trying it for a while after I opened my first tube lol. 

 

Their 24/7 Moisture Cream has the same scent, but stronger, and it doesn't dissipate like it does when I wash off the cleanser...I can't stand that smell hanging around for a while, so I definitely gave that sample up pretty quickly. 

Re: Monthly Misses: November 2021

@txcatx @RGbrown - This is good to know.  I've looked at both of these products several times, but have been indecisive.  Being scent sensitive, this has made up my mind.  😞

Re: Monthly Misses: November 2021

@Titian06 I have truly never found a beauty product with a scent I hated as much as this cleanser!

Re: Monthly Misses: November 2021

@greeneyedgirl107 - I tried a sample of AMOREPACIFIC Treatment Enzyme Peel Cleansing Powder 1.94 oz/ 55 g .  I used this product regularly many years ago, but then the formula changed, the quantity was reduced, and the price remained the same so I stopped using it.  When a sample was available during the sale, I thought, "Why not?"  The product itself is creamy and foamy and my face felt so clean.  What really turned me off was the scent--it was overpowering and lingering.  It made me nauseous and was just short of inducing a migraine. 😝 

Re: Monthly Misses: November 2021

@Titian06 I got a sample of this, too.  I guess I'll be skipping it!
