Don’t we all want to believe in fairytale, even for once? This post is dedicated to all of the promises that beauty product companies make, but can’t keep. All in good fun, but also makes me kind of sad and frustrated 😭😭 Maybe I’ll feel better if I get it off my chest? Let’s hope so and mourn the lies in beauty product advertising 😆

1.’Healing’ split ends. When I hear ‘split ends’ I get into panic mode:
Well, hair product companies got me ‘covered’ with hair oils, shampoos, conditioners… or do they? Split ends can only be cut off – they can’t be glued together again or repaired.
2.Foundations that ‘minimize’ the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Foundations are liquid pigment that is supposed to even the skin tone out. The thing is, this pigment also gets into fine lines and wrinkles, making them more pronounced 😱 At the same time, the face will still look more polished because of the more even skin tone, which is what makeup companies call more ‘youthful’ appearance. Anyway, foundations can do a lot of good things, such as protect from the sun, moisturize, etc, but no foundation can erase wrinkles and fine lines
3.Creams, serums, etc, that work like cosmetic injections. Skincare products can be miracle workers to a degree, but they can’t be nearly as potent as substances injected directly into skin tissues. Skincare products also often require long-term regular use to deliver good results… maybe that’s why I end up with a lot of half-empty jars and still want more!
4.Products that ‘minimize’ pores. Needless to say, pores can’t be shrunk or closed – all of this is a fairytale type of ad. Pores aren’t doors – they can’t be opened and closed 😀 The only way to minimize their appearance is to clean the blockages that exists in them – no magic tricks here, unfortunately.
I could continue the list for ages – ‘firming’ products, ‘clinically tested’ and ‘__% of women find this product effective’ kind of thing, but it eventually gets really frustrating! At first I wanted to discuss at least 7 of them. So I decide to end my list of grievances here 😀
What beauty product promises and advertising tricks do you find too good to be true? I’m really curious to know, so looking forward to your comments!
