Products I’ve Used, But Will I Buy Again? : A – Z

Last updated: 6 October 2020

I assume you’ve found your way here from my Holy Grails page or the post I’ve just done to update it. I created this A – Z list because I like lists. A lot. But also because I need to keep track of what I’ve actually tried. There’s so much here that, without this list, I could easily buy something I’ve bought before as I have the tendency of making purchases without really thinking them through. And for you guys, this is a quick link to all the relevant reviews and a quick guide to see what I’ve liked ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ and what I won’t bother buying again๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿพ .

Please note, a ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿพ isn’t necessarily me saying that the product is trash, it might be, but what it means is that I didn’t like it enough to invest my money in again. And remember, what works or doesn’t work for me won’t necessarily be the same for you so I suggest you read the reviews ๐Ÿ˜‰ to find out more! Obviously, it’s mostly hair care but look for the *** for skin care products. And to find what I really, really love – head over (or back) to my Holy Grails.

Phew! What a list?! I have tried a lot of products, written a lot of reviews and first impressions and it’s all immortalised on the internet for you (and for me too!). I hope you find this handy.

Let’s keep trying and growing together!
