Products I Just Shouldn’t Review

Date Wed, July 1 2015

Now, I don’t just mean that I am a terrible reviewer or something. I just mean that I’m not so good at reviewing things if I can’t form strong opinions — either for or against — about a product. And some types of products just leave me feeling lukewarm by default.

What do I mean?

For starters, there’s cat litter. Unless it’s really, and I mean really awful, it’s okay. I’ll use it and maybe buy it again — or not. And I prefer clay-based litters, so they’re all pretty similar.

Nail polish is another product. I’ve had some formulas that were less than stellar, but I’ll keep using them or simply use them in combination with another nail polish that has a better product. They might dry slowly, but I use a quick dry top coat. I’ll forgive a polish if the color is awesome more often than not. Plus, even the more expensive polishes don’t often seem to be worth it.

Next up is moisturizer. Basic moisturizers without additional features just perform the same for me. Some contributed to breakouts, and a couple have felt too heavy, which makes me sweat, but that’s it. Other than that, it works good enough, and I don’t care how it’s made or what it’s made from.

Another makeup product that I just don’t bother writing reviews about is lip gloss. Is it shiny? Yes. Does it offer a little color? Maybe. Do I hate that color? Probably not. Lip gloss is typically sticky, but that’s the price of admission for shiny lips. and there’s no reason to talk about it more than once.

I think that’s one of the main reasons I don’t write reviews about certain products: I don’t want to repeat myself when what I would be repeating isn’t all that interesting.

There are a number of products that I just don’t care about enough to review, including personal lubricants and most drug-store mascara. And this isn’t even taking into consideration the products I won’t review because I don’t think it’s something that I readers of Reviews by Cole will find helpful.

I could be wrong, of course. I sometimes am. ;)

But I’d rather leave you wanting more.
