Disappointed by...

Lush Angels on Bare Skin Facial Cleanser

Current Rating: 1/5
I will do a better overall review on this, probably.  But after about 2 weeks of usage now, I feel like it is not life-changing, skin-saving, happy-inducing, or anything.  Despite being a little messy to begin with (you need to make a paste with damp hands, blah blah blah), there are funky (not in a bad way) herb bits in the product, the smell is just okay - less delicious than expected, and not impressive at all.  Right now I'm using this as a pre-wash massage before my other cleansers.  I make a good paste and apply it all over my face and neck and chest... and of course I do this in the shower!  If someone loves this, or can think of a good way to help me like it better, share with me!

E45 Lipcare

Current Rating: 0/5
Smells like crayon (fragrance free fail), Drying (soothe n protect dry lips fail), Boring packaging - the cover doesn't even stay tight always...  I'm trying to find a way to get some use from it, but other than acting as a dry film (yuck) on my cuticles, this doesn't seem to work anywhere else... Received this as a souvenir/gift from a friend of my mum... Well, at least I'm glad I didn't pay for it... I believe this isn't even available in my city. Relief.

EOS (evolution of smooth) Smooth Sphere Lip Balm - Honeysuckle Honeydew

Current Rating: 4/5
Please don't get me wrong, I love the packaging (initially), the smell (super yummy melon flavour!), and I also like the moisturising factor (not the most nourishing but it's okay!).  However, the plastic looks so gross after rolling in my make up bag for a few months.  If anyone knows how to clean it up, please advise!  Furthermore, when the dome flattens (I guess the manufacturer/designer did think of this, didn't they?), I have difficulty getting a good application.  I need to make a weird mouth shape to get an even overall contact with the product.  My description disappoints me, but hey, it is really 'that' disappointing...

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer + Loose Powder

Current Rating: 5/5 
Just complaining about the packaging - hope you see the pile of powder above the divider...  It is still a 5/5 product in my opinion.  I guess Bobbi Brown knows about the poor packaging already, hence the repackaged version is now launched.  I haven't touch or try the new pressed-powder version of this concealer set, but theoratically it won't cause such a mess like this one, right?

Are there any beauty products that in one way or another disappoint(s) you?  Do you still use them, still like them despite the disappointment?  Tell me! :D
