Day 3 of Harry Potter themed skincare challenge

Day 3 of #SparklesandNarglesChallenge and for this particular challenge…

“I must not tell lies.”

Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix

For this particular challenge we must share skincare products that were just too overhyped or products that did not work for us. I personally only have two items in my stash that are true disappointments after all the great reviews about them.

Firstly, I present the Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Cleanser.

This was a really disappointing product because initially, I thought this was meant for all skin types due to its low pH value. But apparently, it does not suit well for those with dry skin types. I’m a gal living in two worlds, which just means I got two different skin types on my face and this did not help with my already dry skin on my U-zone. But it did help with some breakouts along my forehead which is a plus for this cleanser.

Another disappoinment is the Hada Labo Gokujyun Cleanser.

It claims to be moisturizing in Hada Labo‘s website but it just isn’t for me. It left my face with the squeaky clean feeling and just this uncomfortable pulling sensation. It was not fun. I gave up on using this after a week and it was the best decision ever.

That was my “I must not tell lies” moment. Do you guys have had the same experience with overhyped products but did not just made it up to par with your standards and skincare needs?

Cheers and have a happy, sunny day!
