Jersey material or knitted blazer. They're £££ for what they are, and look rubbish / bobbly after 3 wears. (yes, Hush, I'm pretty much looking at you)

Please share yours too smile.

expensive moisturiser. Whoever mentioned aveeno on here is a bloody genius.

Anything from Next. I say this all the time but this time I really want to mean it.

...thing on line when I don't know the shop/brand and therefore the fit or likely weight/feel of the stuff. A bargain isn't always a bargain and the post office people probably talk about me behind my back!

Travel bottle pack.

They never clean out properly of gunk.
They always smell of the last/strongest thing.
You waste half the product filling them up and spilling it, or emptying and rinsing them to put something else in.
The caps always break or get lost.
They keep falling out of the cupboard and bouncing everywhere.

Ok, the last one is my fault.

Ditto sirtoffee I haven't tried aveeno but after a foray into all sorts of expensive stuff while temping in a glorified beauty parlour skin specialist centre I discovered there is very little diprobase ointment can't match up to

Any kind of hair product except shampoo, conditioner and shine spray.

They do not work on my hair. They leave my hair greasy and thick, whatever I put in. I do not learn. I have a cupboard full of started stuff.

Can I donate them anywhere or are they useless?

cheap mascara people rave about on here

ANy effort to try to replicate the "This WOrks dry leg oil" at half the price

beauty box

full of crap

Bobbi Brown blushers. No matter how they look in the pan they all turn me orange.

SinkyMalinks Tue 23-Apr-13 09:33:00

LadyMountbatten - curses! I came on this thread to try and save some cash and stop buying miracle (expensive) wotnots.

I have now ordered £40 leg oil.

ClaudiaCutie Tue 23-Apr-13 12:01:17

Any other lingerie from What Katie Did in NH. Very expensive stuff, snooty and dismissive service, nothing really fitted me properly, and just had the clips fail on suspenders, rendering the whole garment useless and stocking rocketing down left leg. Cross! Everyone goes on about the quality of the garments but actually they aren't that great. Grrr. Buying online from now on, so that's another high st failure for me. <flounces out>

SvetlanaKirilenko Tue 23-Apr-13 12:11:41

Cleanser or toner, or facial soap etc. - I use olive oil in the evening, honey in the morning, and skin has never been better. I have wasted £££ over the years on expensive products full of crap that I did not need!

SacreBlue Tue 23-Apr-13 12:30:06

Thanking Claudia for that tip - I have always liked the look of WKD and this summer was about to treat myself to drawerful of new underwear - so glad I didn't just order up online

Nothing more from White Stuff, ever.

Wore a top the other day, it is one of the worst made pieces of shit I have ever put on my body. Not a seam in the right place.

Everything I've bought there in the past three years has been a bit off: a bit bobbly, a bit tight at the arm, a bit short, a bit misshapen, a bit cheap fabric. This was the last straw.

YoniOno Tue 23-Apr-13 13:00:14

... bra in a too-big back size thanks

santamarianovella Tue 23-Apr-13 13:42:18

mimi holiday underwear,so pretty but very delicate,the lace cups in the bra ripped after a couple of wears.

stella mccartney underwear ,strange fit and very uncomfortable.

expensive moisturisers, pharmacy brands are much better.

argan oil,smell strange and did nothing for me.

Strapless bra. I just can't a good fit no matter what bra I've tried. Luckily I don't wear strapless tops or dresses.
Expensive nail polish, cheap ones last just as long on my poor battered nails
Mousse foundation, no matter the shade or brand, they go orange on my skin

FoundAChopinLizt Tue 23-Apr-13 15:00:49

Tunic top.
