11 of the worst face moisturizers

by Jami Summers on December 24, 2008 · 2 comments

Revealed by Total Beauty! For some funny reason, I love seeing “worst of” lists. Maybe it’s strange, I don’t know… but I so enjoy seeing some of the big commercial brands getting taken down a notch by truly honest reviews on the internet.  That’s what I adore about blogging and forums. We can all share our TRUE thoughts. Swayed by a TV ad and bought a product? Only to find out it turned your face red? We can now all share our opinions on the web for other ladies to see. No longer do we have to make the same mistakes!

Or like me, I bought that infamous “best” mascara that *everyone* loves (uh hmmm, Maybelline Great Lash)… only to have blood spots appear in both eyes overnight. They burst and my eye whites were covered in bloody splotches for days. Needless to say, I don’t recommend this product and I pitched my tube.

Anyhow, yes, I enjoy reading a good worst-of list. If you share my strange fascination, check out Total Beauty’s list of 11 of the Worst Face Lotions:

Interesting list. I like the worst lists too. Out of all of those moisturizers, I’ve tried the Aveeno and the Patricia Wexler and I really liked both of them. Go figure :)

Lol! I love that most of the “worst of” list had incredibly expensive lotions on it. It makes me feel okay about being on a budget. ;) Thanks BB and TotalBeauty!
