These are a just a few products that I'm not all that fond of, that's not to say that I think they're completely terrible or that you won't like them and absolutely shouldn't try them ever, they just don't work that well for me and these are just my opinions.
John Frieda Go Blonder Lightening Spray and I was going to repurchase that one but since I usually love Lee Stafford hair products I thought I would try this out instead. I actually don't think this is a bad product at all, in fact I think it smells much nicer, it's just very subtle and it definitely doesn't lighten as much as the John Frieda version that I love so much. This could be one to try if you're looking to achieve a slightly lighter hair colour or perhaps a subtle ombre for the summertime, but if you're wanting something I little more dramatic I would definitely go for the John Frieda instead. For comparison I would say the John Frieda has lightened my natural dark blonde hair colour by about 3 or 4 shades and the Lee Stafford would probably only manage to lighten by 1 or 2 shades.

Benefit They're Real Mascara
This is a product I'm actually sort of sad I don't like because it makes my lashes look amazing. It lengthens, adds volume and holds a curl really well throughout the day BUT it smudges on me like crazy and it really really really stings my eyes. It's also on the pricey side and I definitely don't think it's so much better than some of the more affordable mascaras. I'm currently using Maybelline The Falsies and although it doesn't lengthen or volumise quite as much, it's pretty close! And at least by opting for more affordable mascaras I'm saving quite a lot of pennies in the long run, which is always a good thing!

GlossyBox in recent months and although I don't think they're completely awful, I do think they're much too expensive for what they are. I thought I would really like this mascara, the small wand is perfect for really coating even the smallest of lashes but unfortunately this doesn't give a great deal of volume or length. It's super natural, which can be nice, perhaps if you don't like to wear a lot of make up or if you're still at school and aren't allowed to, I just think this is a few pounds too expensive for what it is.

Sienna X Cream to Powder Bronzer & Illuminator♦
Cream products are my absolute favourite so I was really excited to try this bronzer & highlighter duo out from Sienna X, especially because I love their powder bronzer a lot. The cream bronzer in this duo is really nice, it's creamy, blends seamlessly into the skin and gives a really pretty colour that can be built up or applied slightly more sheerly. Unfortunately the cream highlight isn't as smooth or creamy and isn't as easy to blend. If you take time to really warm the product up it's a little easier to apply but it's not my favourite highlighter by any means, which is a shame because this could have been a really amazing little duo.
Retail Price: £25
