Sometimes I come across strange beauty and fashion products and wonder if they actually work! Well, I finally decided I was going to try some strange beauty and fashion products I came across!
The first thing I saw was this Wet brush. It says it is “The most amazing detangler brush you’ll ever use!” So I obviously needed to try it when they make huge claims like that. I was skeptical because I have curly hair, which is knotty and hurts when I brush through it. I went in kind of skeptical because hair brushes aren’t a curly haired girl’s best friend. I started brushing through my hair and there was no pain at all! I even brushed it dry and there was no pain whatsoever! I was able to put my fingers through my hair without them getting stuck in knots as well. So their claims are true, and I will be using this brush for as long as I live.
Next weird beauty product I tried was this eye refresh from Elf Cosmetics. It claims to be cooling for your under eyes while it gets rid of dark circles and under eye bags. When I used this I automatically felt the cooling sensation and the tightening of my under eye skin. It didn’t completely get rid of the dark circles under my eyes but definitely brightened my under eye area! I say it works pretty well and I’m sure over time would help alleviate dark circles.
I also tried underarm deodorant wipes by Pacifica. They replace regular deodorant and after wearing it for a day, I have to say it doesn’t work well for me. Here’s why, I used the wipes under my arm and a very strong coconut smell lingered from my pits. Being positive, I thought “Well it’s better to smell like coconut than body odor,” knowing that passing strangers could probably smell it too. After the day was over, I realized the smell went away and I smelled like B.O.! I was disappointed that these didn’t work for me because they seemed very convenient and I love the brand Pacifica.
The next weird product I tried was something that’s on-trend right now, called POPSOCKETS. This serves as a small knob that is placed on the back of a phone, so you can hold it more comfortably… anddd also not drop it on your face while holding it above your head. I thought this was an amazing idea so I got one to try (obviously in rose gold)! So, I applied it to the back of my phone and used it all day. It was very comfortable but takes a little while to get used to using. I love the fact that it helps me not drop my phone on my face, and also I can use it as a stand for my phone. It’s definitely worth the hype!
I found this Elf mascara and eyeshadow shield which I thought was a super cool idea. Especially if you like putting face makeup on before your eye makeup (like me). I tried it and it’s not super practical to use EVERY time you put on eyeshadow or mascara. But if you know an eyeshadow has a lot of fallout then you can definitely utilize this.
I found a nail polish drying spray at Target that says it’s for “fast drying and won’t smear.” This is another pretty big claim that I had to test out for myself. I put nail polish on my friends nail (I get my nails done) and waited a minute and sprayed the finger from 4 inches away like the bottle instructed. We repeated it a few times as needed (also from bottles instructions) and it was still just as wet from when we applied the polish. Also, the contents from the bottle made my friends finger so cold it went numb. Definitely not recommending to waste your money or try this at home.
And lastly, I found a makeup remover pen from Elf Cosmetics! I was pleasantly surprised with this because I was able to fix a bad liquid liner job very simply with this tool. So no more stressing out if your liquid liner is messed up on one eye but not the other. This is a quick fix and I love it! It has a precise tip pen and is easy to use and work with! Absolutely love!
