August 2014 UNfavorites

I really need to start pairing this particular post with something else because unfavorites are pretty hard to come by now. Anyone have any ideas? I was thinking maybe a monthly Lifestyle Favorites so I could throw in things like snacks, teas, songs, etc. that I've been really into in the past month. I'm just starting to see a hard time having a dedicated monthly unfavorites post as a stand alone entry now. This month I only found three, and one I swear is a repeat but after pulling it out again for Project Pan, it just really reminded me how much I dislike this product.

  • First up this Pantene Shampoo is possibly the worst shampoo I have ever tried. It actually makes my hair feel dirtier after use which is just unbelievable. My hair washing schedule is just twice a week (Monday and Thursday) and each time I use this, the very next day my hair feels like there is just a lot of build up and in need of a washing again. Even when I pair it with my usual shampoo it still just feels awful. I think this shampoo will have to go to my dog because my hair does not agree with it.
  • I'm pretty sure this has been featured before but I really don't like theBalm's Stainiac. Cheek/lip stains in general I don't like, but this one is such a weird gel consistency that frankly grosses me out. It's going to be a struggle having this in project pan because using it pretty much repulses me. This gel just doesn't seem right to me, maybe I got a bad batch from Birchbox?
  • I struggled whether or not to list this as an unfavorites, but after trying it multiple times, I'm just not a fan. The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara just doesn't do it for me. I do see a slight thickening of my lashes, but overall it doesn't do anything dramatic, and it also smudges and flakes like crazy so it's just a huge mess by the end of the day for me. I'm glad I just have this little sample size that came in one of their value sets because I would have been mad if I bought a full size of it.
What are some of your unfavorites for this month?
