Gosh products I wouldn't recommend

Gosh Cosmetics I don't like

Two months ago I blogged about my favourite Gosh Cosmetics products. However despite being one of my favourite brands also due to their cruelty-free status, helpful customer service team who answer questions about vegan products and their easy availability on the British high street, there are still products I dislike. As you can tell from the photo there aren't many products I don't recommend however to save you all a few bob I thought I'd run through them.

Gosh BB Skin Perfecting Kit (Beige 1)
From the photo you can tell that I have been reaching for this a fair bit, however I don't actually like it (and I've only been reaching for it because I haven't bothered to buy another concealer). The staying power isn't great and I like my concealer to be quite a bit thicker. Also the highlighter is very shimmery and I don't even like using it the evening, let alone the day.

Gosh Eye Brow Kit Multi
I'm still on a never-ending quest to find a cruelty-free alternative to the HD Brow Kit but unfortunately this was not it. It isn't particularly pigmented and I think I only used it once (it looks brand new in the photo and I even had to go looking for it!).

Gosh Pressed Powder (Golden Honey 01)
It's going to be hard to explain why this didn't sit with me but it is do with its finish. When I applied this to my face bits of the powder seems to bunch up together forming little flakes of power on my skin, as opposed to a nice even and smooth finish. You wouldn't notice these flakes from a distance and it was very mattifying but I think I'll spend my money elsewhere next time.

Gosh Velvet Touch Foundation Primer (Clear)
Even before purchasing this I already felt as though the only primers worth buying were high-end. This drugstore primer didn't help change my mind on that and I'm still not convinced there's such a thing as a great but inexpensive primer.

Gosh Defining Brow Gel (Clear)
It's such a small part of a beauty regime and maybe not an 'essential' but I do love a brow gel to help my eyebrows look really tip top. However this just didn't hold them in place for long plus the gel was thick and a bit 'gloopy'.

Have you tried any of these products? Do you agree that they aren't worth it?

  1. This is such a good idea for a post!! Everyone is always quick to recommend but it's just as helpful to tell people the time wasting products! Fab post. I've not tried out any of their stuff though!
