Disappointing product ...

As a blogger I think it's so important to share all things, the good, the bad and the disappointing!

I have been trying out so many beauty products recently and have come a couple of things that honestly don't quite make the grade. So I thought I would share my thoughts with you.

First up unfortunately is the new Sensationail Express Gel polishes* that have just been released. 

I must say that I'm a massive Sensationail fan and have used their lamp and regular line polishes for some time now. I was literally so excited when I heard these newbies were coming out, I mean they sound great, you literally only needed the lamp and the Express Gel polish (£10) of your choice. They state their is no need primer, top coat, base coat or anything else!

These new polishes are suppose to last up to 10 days, but sadly mine didn't even last 12 hours and most of that time I was asleep in bed. 

They are dry to touch straight away as they are cured using the LED Sensationail lamp which is fab. But they quickly showed wear and chipping on the tips of the each nail (even though I capped the tip of each with the polish), and the whole of my thumb had come off during the first 24 hours.

I was then easily able to peel the rest of the polish off, which if you have tried to get gel polish off before, you will know its normally quite the task. Each nail then felt incredibly smooth, which again isn't normal from doing this. So I honestly don't think the formula of these lives up to what it could possibly do. 

Now these were very kindly sent to me for review but I couldn't let that effect my thoughts, I need to tell you my honest findings on each product I try.

Feel free to leave a comment with any disappointing products you have found yourself.

Really appreciate your honesty as it's hard to find real honest reviews these days. Such a shame they didn't perform better xx

Not even 12 hours wear is ridiculous! It's shame because I usually like their products and the shade names were adorable.

I love an honest review! A shame they did not work for you x

Cassandra Thompson said...

Wow not lasting more than 12 hours is not ideal!

Nothing worse than a disappointing product, but I'm glad you shared your review! I'll be sure to steer clear of these!

It's such a shame! I was going to buy the full set when I was in the US but went for a standard blue sky set and love that.

Oh what a shame, it's such a promising concept! Always disappointing when a product doesn't live up to its claims :(

Not lasting 12 hours is pretty poor! Nice colours though.
