Expensive Items I Regret Purchasing

Hey guys!  Today I was doing some cleaning and ran across some items that every time I see them, I can't help but suffer major regret from buying them.  They are probably great items for other people, they just really ended up being a waste of money for me. I don't have much stuff that I regret buying, I tend to be pretty easy to please and happy with most things. Anyways, let's get to it. I'm gonna be talking about 3 items today, the first one up - The Tria Hair Removal Laser. 

As you can tell from the packaging which is still basically perfectly intact, I haven't used this hardly at all. This baby was like 500 bucks. Yes, really. I thought I'd sit around lasering my body till I was slick as a ribbon, but I just haven't. The area where the laser comes out is really small, and it would take forever to do large areas (like your legs).  I don't know, this probably works wonders if you use it. I just haven't. Maybe I will one day, lol.  $500 is a lot of money to just let it sit in a box and not at least try to use it.  

Next up, my ghd hair straightener. I know this thing has a cult following, so let me say this first, I have NEVER liked my hair flat ironed. Ever. So I really don't know why I bought this. As far as straighteners go, this one works superb. I just don't like slicked down straight hair on me. I like full/wavy/messier hair. So when I say this purchase is a regret, it's not the item itself, it's simply because it's a straightener. I don't flat iron my hair, so it was a waste.  I paid $200 for this when I got it and have used it maybe twice? When I wear my hair straight(ish) I use a big curling iron. I don't aim for stick straight perfect hair, but full and sexy. And I ALWAYS use a big Hot Tools curling iron. That's the only kind I have used for years now. I always get the purple tourmaline ones:

This one is a 2" barrel I think?  Anyways, best curling irons ever. Love it. 

And last but not least I am going to talk about a makeup product, the Laura Mercier Limited Edition Deluxe Size Tinted Moisturizer.  I got this from Sephora a year or so ago. Here it is pictured with a normal size tube. 

I mean, this tube is HUGE.  The regular size tube of this is $43.  I can't remember how much I spent on this, ballpark I'd say $75?  Again, another item that has a cult following. I have a couple tubes of this in different shades as well as the compact one:

It's never really been a product I reach for, so I really don't know why I bought this. I like tinted moisturizers okay, my favorite is the Sonia Kashuk one:

I need to just get in the habit of reaching for these other products instead of using my Neutrogena foundation all the time. Habits are hard to break though. As far as foundation or face makeup goes, I could have Neutrogena, CG 3 in 1, and EL Double Wear the rest of my life and never feel the need to look for anything else. Best ones ever. Everrrr <3

Alrighty guys, that's all I'm going to mention today. I've got some cleaning and sorting to do, I'm going through and purging lots of stuff I don't use to take to my mama. Gotta make room for new stuff, right???  You guys have a great week and take care!  Stop by again soon!!!!

  1. Actually, I never wear my hair straight either, but I use my straightening all the time for creating beautiful, big fluffy waves in my hair. I tried my friend's GHD for that purpose once and I was so pleased. Maybe you should give it another try :)
