Products I regret buying

I thought I'd do a different post today and one I've never done before. There aren't many products I buy and then think "why on earth did I buy it?" but there have been a few including these four:

Left - Right - Tresemme Intensive Conditioner, Toni & Guy Firm Hold Hairspray, Benefit Confessions of a Concealerholic and L'Oreal Studio Secrets Primer.

Tresemme Intensive Conditioner
I first used Tresemme years ago when it first came out and it just doesn't agree with my hair and scalp. So what on earth possessed me to buy 4 tubs of their intensive conditioner I really don't know. I use this very occassionally so the huge 500ml tubs will last me a lifetime at this rate!

Toni & Guy Firm Hold Hairspray
I have review this already and that can be found here but in a nutshell it's sticky, the hole always blocks and it's the worst hairspray I've ever used.

Benefit Confessions of a Concealerholic
I couldn't wait for this to come out! I was so excited! But for £28.50 it was a major waste of money. It contains two shades of boiing concealer in mini sizes which are stuck in the box, a mini lemonaid (also stuck in the box), a mini eyebright (can't be removed), 2 mini brushes, a mini that gal face primer (can be removed) and a mini erase paste (also can be removed). The amount of product you get for the money is teeny. I've only used the erase paste and I've just started using the primer. A complete waste of money.

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Primer
When I first bought this I loved it, then loads of other primers came onto the market and these just highlighted how bad this one was. For £12.99 it's really overpriced and I hardly use it. I'd much rather use cheaper alternatives from 17 or Witch which both give better results.

Has anyone else tried these products? What do you think of them? Also what products have you bought which you wish you hadn't?

Haha I have all these products except the Benefit one! I think the conditioner is rubbish, it doesn't make my hair feel deep conditioned at all. I hardly ever use the hairspray and I agree that the primer is not much good haha
