Pandora’s Box #10 with Consumerista

pandora-consumerista03

 

Beauty Pie’s signature category: the notorious Pandora’s Box. This time we’ve teamed up with Consumerista — probably the best blogger writing about natural beauty in Russian. You can also check her updates on the instagram — not only in Russian. So that’s what Consumerista told us:

“Usually before purchasing a new product I’m going into the deep research: read various reviews, learn more about the manufacturer and brand values. Reviews of the well-trusted bloggers and interviews with brand founders play a big role in my decision making process. Most of the time products that I buy don’t disappoint me.

In here we put the most useless beauty products that collect dust and take up space in our bathroom cabinets.Products in this category aren’t necessarily bad (as we believe that there’s no such thing as bad cosmetics), but these items either didn’t fit in in our daily routines, didn’t fulfill what was promised on the packaging or just didn’t meet our expectations. We’ve all been there sometimes: impulsively buying a hyped face mask instead of a dinner in a fancy restaurant, or yet another nail polish, or something simply because it’s mass-market and is virtually free. Well, next time think twice, have you seen it flying out of Beauty Pie’s Pandora Box? Put it back on the shelf.
