It’s not fair and it’s really not ok. Have you had to bin?

My expensive eye cream mistake and Bunnybuns sudden allergy to her beloved Clinique last week got me to thinking.

How often have you thrown something away, or pushed it to the back of the bathroom cabinets to moulder, for one reason or another? If you’re like me, then you’ve probably done this quite a few times. It’s so frustrating when this happens and such a flippin waste of money. And it happens far more times than it should.
So tell us – have you ever had to bin?

    Shame we can’t tick multiple answers – I would definitely go for both 1 and 3! It’s always the most expensive products that disappoint me the most. If I spend a fiver on something, it doesn’t hurt quite as much as when I’ve parted with fifty quid, does it! :(

    Mario Badescu Silver Powder – useless and messy
    Mario Badescu Healing Cream – useless and smelly
    Lancome Huile Douceur – awful, gave me spots all over my forehead

    Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation – dried out my skin (combo)
    Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Fundation – highlighted all my pores, looked like I had dots of foundations all over my nose
    Chanel Pro Lumiere – Ditto
    Make Up Forever HD Foundation – Ditto

    Guinot Facewash for Combination/oily skin – dried out my skin

    still, on the plus side I have loadsa products which I loved first time! :-)

    Spent a small fortune on loads of Dermalogica stuff October last year as my skin breaks out really really badly in the winter. From October – Feb every year its the same. Had the face mapping done and the girl reccomended I use about 4/5 different products and that it would clear my skin up in about 6 weeks. I did exactly what I was told to do religiously every day.
    By New Years Eve I had a massive rash on my neck, my skin had never looked worse covered in spots where I have never had them before, dry skin which I have never suffered from and it was painful. Binned all of it and bought a Neutrogina facial wash & Moisturiser for next to nothing and my skin never looked better. Madness…

      I’ve been using Dermalogica products for oily/combination skin for the last 3 years or so and have been suffering from regular break-outs. Considering how expensive and well known of a brand it is, I didn’t even consider a possibility that it could be the cause of all my skin problems! So there I went and tried an organic moisturiser and cleanser and my skin has never looked better. I just wish I didn’t spend hundreds of €’s on useless Dermalogica and tried something else earlier…

  • Aisling Aphrodite says:

    yes, I should have done the ticking multiple answers on this one! I would be 1 and 3 too

  • Gingerrama says:

    I’d be 1 and 3 too. Went for 1, as main reason for chucking stuff. I’m not going to make a list as it would be very long, and surely that’s what confession is for?

    I don’t always chuck stuff though: also swap or give away. Often makes friends happy. Plus women’s shelters and charities, collecting clothes and new/lightly-used cosmetic stuff for women esp. going to job interviews and back into the world after domestic abuse, illness, trauma, and prison. I’d encourage this – they always need stuff, and it means it’s not a waste if it’s still useful to somebody.

    OK, not giving away something that made you really ill, though …

    Kerr, was that the medibac range? my skin had a really bad reaction to that also. peeling red raw skin and tiny whiteheads everywhere – like there was a tiny whitehead in every pore.

  • Tiddles says:

    I very rarely bin things – but I am a bold one for going out and buying other similar things and ending up with a pile at the bottom of my cabinet that’s had like…a month’s use! Haha

  • ita says:

    candi did you return the products to the salon?

  • dressjunkie says:

    I’m currently in this quandry with my quite expensive Liz Earle offerings *hovers over bin*

  • sarah says:

    dressjunkie, I’ll gladly relieve you of liz earle goods if you’re gonna bin
    them.:-P.. haven;t been disappointed yet with any of the products, love the smell
    and texture.
