No. 6: Philosophy Help Me Retinol Treatment, $45TotalBeauty.com average reader rating: 6.8*
Why: With "sadly disappointing" reviews, it's no wonder why this product is on our list. Multiple reviewers encountered bad reactions that made them "break out HORRIBLY" by "averaging three to four new breakouts per day." The product also created "red patches that really itch," says another reader. One reader says she even got "contact dermatitis (yes, huge red bumpy rashes) all over [her] neck and face." Another woman vents, "I hate this stuff. I got suckered into buying this, but never again. I have more than half of the tube remaining and I am thinking of throwing it away. I thought of using it on my feet but it is not even worth that." Bottom line, says one reader: "Ladies, don't waste your money."
