Today I decided to write about a face cream that was not a good fit for me. I was conflicted whether I should publish this post or not.
Some bloggers do not publish negative reviews. Please don’t think of this as a negative review. I tried a product that simply wasn’t right for my skin.
Everybody has this kind of bad experiences every now and then with a product. I don’t think that the bad experiences with skin care products should be hidden under the rug or ignored.
When I write about a product that I didn’t like or that I wouldn’t purchase again I don’t write it to be mean.
I write it because I don’t want other persons to have the same issue. You can see what characteristics my skin has in the About me page. If we share them I don’t want you to buy that product with high expectations and be disappointed in the end.
This is a blog for real, imperfect women, therefore it will have real, not always positive reviews.

How it applies on the skin: It glides nicely but the skin remains a bit greasy.
Results I had: I didn’t notice any changes. On the other hand, I did not use it constantly for a long period of time as it irritated my skin occasionally. My skin turned red and it burned. I gave it several chances but the problem kept coming back so I stopped using it.

My thoughts about this face cream
Thank God I got it at 60% sale. Unfortunately, it wasn’t what I expected and it wasn’t what my skin needed. Probably I had an allergic reaction to one of the ingredients. However, I cut this range off of my wishlist.
Did any of you use it? Am I the only one that had this issue? Did any of you have a different experience with it? Please share in the comments.
