I'd rather get coal than...
This holiday season, we're sounding off on the products that did our skin no favors! What product did you try this year that was so bad, you'd rather get a lump of coal than ever try it again?
Give me coal...not fancy chapstick!!
Id rather get coal than chapstick for Christmas!!! The classic stocking stuffer, chapstick..well leave me out of it because no other chapstick compares to my carmex. I used to be a chapstick hoe!! I loved trying out all the fancy chapsticks and new flavors but every time I would end up unsatisfied and with dry lips. Carmex does the trick for me leaving my lips glossy satisfied and not chapped!! I know it seems crazy but now a days every brand has a chapstick with a cool flavor or some ingredient that is meant to change your world, but honestly they never work..that is for me! I have been strictly carmex for a few years now and I will not go back, it’s marketed to provide long lasting protective barrier to promote healing and cools and soothes lips with menthol! I absolutely adore this little stick. I stick with the original and have about twenty. 5/5 from me and love how it glides so perfectly on my lips and leaves the glossy look. It even has spf!! It’s perfect. For 1.79 I say give me!!!
I rather have coal than Évolué super oil
✨ The purpose of this product is to hydrate your face from dryness and to use it as a primer or without make up. It is supposed to blur out your pores and not clog it up. 🛑 The smell is so terrible it smells like a fish pond it is so disgusting I cannot even finish to try it out. 🗝 The texture of this product is very oily and just watery it didn’t even feel like a prime didn’t feel like anything at all but again I couldn’t finish using it because the smell was so terrible! 📌 My experience with this product was just terrible I got it in my Ipsy bag I paid for which was my Ipsy bag plus and this terrible thing I received in my box. I was so excited before it came in the mailbox but now I can’t even stand it and I don’t even know what to do with it because it cost me. Do I like this product? 👎🏼 No I don’t like this product because it didn’t even feel like anything I would want to try and get back to the smell and I don’t like to shame brands but if you’re gonna try to sell something and make it Little pricey than that you got to do better in the smell. Do I recommend this product? 👎🏼 no I don’t recommend this product I don’t even know how anyone can’t even stand it. Is the product worth it? 👎🏼 no the product is not worth it at all ! évolué - Super Oil Huile Oil

ciaté - Extraordinary Translucent Setting Powder This is by far the worst setting powder I’ve tried ! Setting powders are so important, especially for all day wear. The only translucent powder I trust is Laura Merciers. I received this product in a IPSY bag months back and honestly misplaced it. Honestly, it could’ve stayed lost! This product claims to be: vegan gluten-free It also advertises as a “finely milled powder”. It is very much that BUT : The flashback was horrible ! : any translucent powder that leaves a flashback is a automatic NO It dried my concealer too much! : my eye prep and concealers make my eyes more hydrated than normal. So to find that this formula dries right into my fine lines really is disappointing! It looked cakey!: I was going to chop this up to how it dries down, but it’s literally the powder itself. Overall this powder didn’t work for me because Flashback! I like powders that do not set into my fine lines ! I looked ghostly 😅 This powder retails for $22 (on sale for $15.40) Have you had an experience with this powder?

I’d rather get coal than this milk + honey deo!
I received this deodorant in a Birchbox limited edition clean beauty box. At first I was super stoked to receive this. I’ve wanted to make the switch to a natural deodorant for a while. The consistency is gross and sticky when you apply it. I didn’t think it gave me any sweat protection, not that I sweat a lot. It did smell ok and the smell lasted all day. After a few days of using it I broke out with the worst rash under both of my underarms. It hurt so bad! I stopped using it immediately and it went away after a few days. I tossed it ASAP! I’m so skeptical to try other natural deodorant snow!

GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist was a product I initially purchased because of the hype....and never ended up using. 😒 I am a huge fan of hydrating mists but this just didn’t do it for me. Living in a desert I absolutely always keep a mist on hand and this bottle has one of the best spritzing mechanisms that delivers such a perfect mist that I wish I had loved it. (Note: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha is the best if you’re looking for one!) Downfalls: Added fragrance- Glow Recipe is known for its popular watermelon scent. Contains small amount of apple cider vinegar which can be sensitizing. Clear bottle causes products to degrade - This was something I learned AFTER purchasing and was disappointing to hear. It’s meant to be stored in a cool dark cabinet or drawer. If you’re looking for just a fun hydrating mist and love watermelon, this is for you. For me, I felt I paid for scented water 🤭 opps, I said it! I’ve tried a few of Glow Recipes other products and some have been hits, others misses. I LOVED their GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask but they discontinued it 😩. I’ve also heard great things about their GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer and hope to give it a try in the future. I hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas and don’t get coal! 🎄🤶 ❤️🍒 DISCLAIMER- I realize I have become a lot more HONEST with my reviews. It’s not that I wasn’t before I think it’s that I’ve learned a lot by taking a break from posting as often and spending more time doing research and learning about others needs, not just my own skincare concerns. So instead of just sharing that a product was say 5⭐️ for me, I’m trying to evaluate it more from a wider perspective. Example: the watermelon scent in this spray is not sensitizing to me but can be to others so I deducted a star for that.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
