Okay, maybe the products don’t actually suck… but they certainly didn’t work the way I wanted them to.
I figured that since I enjoy sharing products I love; it would also make sense to share a few products that I certainly do NOT love!
Item #1: Dark Spot Corrector Cream by Whitening Labs
I have a spot on my cheek. I spoke to my dermatologist about it and she says that it’s just a sun spot/age spot. When I asked if we could burn that sucker off, she said that they *could* do a laser treatment on my face… but it wasn’t covered by insurance (cha-ching) and may only fade it a little. I know I could just cover it with makeup, but I’m not really a face foundation/concealer kind of girl. So, I figured I’d see if there was something over the counter I could try before giving up and naming it.
I found this Dark Spot Corrector Cream on Amazon and it has 305 customer reviews with a 4 ½ star rating. It cost $20, so I figured I’d give it a try. They recommend using it for 6 – 8 weeks to see results, so I used it twice a day for over two months and… NOTHING.
Not a change at all. Of course, after that much time passed it was no longer eligible for a return, so I shoved it in my medicine cabinet and I glare at it every so often.
Item #2: Admire my Skin Ultra-Potent Brightening Serum
I bought this product at the same time as the first one. It had 1,708 customer reviews with a total of 4 out of 5 stars. This one cost $24 and I also used it religiously… only for nothing to happen at all.
I emailed the company through the Amazon link and they immediately refunded my money. So, even though this product also didn’t work, I’m not quite as mad at them since they gave me my money back.
Item #3: Aloe Vera Gel
Okay, this one isn’t so much the product’s fault…but the internet’s fault. I was suddenly inundated with advertisements about cleavage wrinkles. Yeah, cleavage wrinkles are a thing. So, naturally… I started worrying that I had a wrinkly cleavage. As you do.
I didn’t want to buy the boobie mask all the ads were selling, but I wondered what was out there that would solve my newly determined cleavage wrinkle issue. The internet decided that the answer is Aloe Vera Gel. By buttering up my breastie area twice a day, I could have the décolletage of a baby bunny. Except, no. It literally did nothing and I look exactly the same. So, I give up. I’ll keep this one around in case someone in the house gets sunburn, but I’m calling this yet another fail!
Do you have a product that didn’t live up to its claim? Feel free to share it in the comments!

Clevage wrinkles are really a thing. I am 42 and am now feeling my age as I see them when I wake up. I think the only thing I can do is sleep on my back or find some sort of wedge to put between the girls at night so they don’t tug on the skin. 🙂
Apparently only extra ‘blessed in the chest’ ladies get them… from our boobies flopping over when we sleep on our sides!
My bathroom is absolutely cluttered with products that I thought I would like/love and ended up being ehh or absolutely disliking. The worst part is I usually buy products in person so I can’t even blame the internet!! But I’m very picky about texture, finish, stickiness, etc. I’m trying a new dark spot eliminating product that came highly recommended by several people. I’ll let you know if it actually works!
Please let me know if it does!
