I am on a shopping ban now.. as you all might know already..
But there are some products, that I would have not picked even if I was not on a ban!
Yes… And I am just gonna talk about them in this post…
1. Dove Elixir Oil
This product created quite a buzz even before it became easily available in the market.
Almost everyone, was looking to pick them online or in the local supermarkets.
Reviews & giveaways galore.. this product was(is) the ‘apple of the eye’ in recent times for many! 🙂
I would have probably bought ‘Nourished Shine’ or ‘Hairfall Rescue’ variants for obvious reasons..
But, mineral oil high up in the ingredients list stopped me from picking one actually.
Well, I would have to do a separate post why to avoid mineral oil… which I shall definitely do! 🙂
2. Bajaj Almond Drops Hair Oil
This is one oil my husband, in fact everyone in my in-laws side vouch for & have been using this for years. (No offence meant)
Again this product doesn’t make it to my list, for the same reasons again – high mineral oil content!
Its just lying in my dresser, but I would never have it on my hair ever.
3. Garnier BB Cream
This BB cream fever hooked on since last year in India – with the launch of Maybelline BB cream.
I would never buy these namesake creams launched just to please the BB-hungry Indian market ever.
I have tried the Maybelline BB Cream & moved over it too. There are better reviews for Garnier than the Maybelline one & there are people who have repurchased it too.
I shall pick up one of those original Korean BB stuff later from eBay or Korean shopping sites.. but not these!
As for now, I am extremely happy with my Oriflame Very Me Peach Me Perfect Tinted Moisturizer.
4. Maybelline BB Stick
This is the latest kid in the block!
I m really not a stick person (now..wat was tat?)
My normal-slightly dry skin would love liquid stuff anyday to these creamy sticks.. plus I might end up breaking this one the second day in the rush hour for office 😀
So, yup.. I am giving this a miss too!
5. Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter
These are a huge hit all over – just like the other stuff from the Colorburst range from Revlon.
Somehow I never got attracted to these – never ever till date! 🙁
Don’t own a single.. not sure of owning one in the recent times too.
Am I really gonna give this a miss? Time will tell…
But let me tell you, I am looking forward to Maybelline’s Color Whisper launch in India – which is Maybelline’s answer to Revlon’s lip butters. (Quite late an answer though..)
6. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain
These are some beautfiul new babies in the country… 🙂
I tried these at the Revlon counter & have posted swatches of these too HERE.
There is this minty fragrance I didn’t like about this.. but not to bother much.. it fades away quick.
I just liked one shade & that too looked similar to one lippie I already own.. finally decided to give these a miss!
Well, almost every brand seems to move to crayon-type lip products these days…
I love my bullets.. please don’t forget making them!
7. Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hrs. Lipstick
I really like this collection for its shades! 🙂 I have swatched them HERE.. take a look.
I wanted to pick either ‘Stay with me Coral’ or ‘Keep Me Coral’ particularly from this range – but decided against it later.
One of the lipsticks had minute shimmer & shimmers in anything is something that I hate. The other one felt too dry on my lips (trust me..I wore it & thronged around the mall for atleast next 2 hours.)
I love matte yet non-drying (read creamy) lipsticks. So, this lipstick probably would never make it to my vanity.
HnB Ed: This list is just about my personal choice. I am definitely not trying to chide anybody for their choices. After all we are human & have our own preferences & reasons to everything we do – ain’t we? I am posting this note to avoid any arguments later (just in case!).
Okie.. this is the list of products that – I am gonna give a miss!
Do you have any list like this with you too? Share your thoughts…
