This really didn't do anything for my fine oily hair. If anything this was too drying and my hair started producing more oil. Doesn't do what it says it should do and I still wanted to wash my hair everyday while using this.
One of my favorite shampoos. It cleanses good and removes product but isnt drying at all and doesn't weigh my hair down. I love the smell and how great my hair feels after continuous use. Worked really well when I was growing out my hair and trying to keep it healthy.

I like this shampoo a lot. For reference I have long fine hair that is on the oily side. This shampoo smells amazing and the smell lasts long after styling. This is not drying and I find it gentle enough for everyday use. This is a good budget friendly choice and I will likely repurchase. EDIT: After using about half of the bottle I do find this to be a bit drying and irritating to my scalp.
Shampoo -TRESemme - Naturals Radiant Volume Shampoo

I like using this shampoo once or twice a week as a clarifying shampoo. It can be very drying so it is def not for everyday use. The smell is nice, not too overpowering and it does last. As a clarifying shampoo this does remove buildup and doesnt weigh my fine hair down.
After following the directions and giving this product a few goes I can say this does nothing for my hair at all. Does not absorb oil and the smell is too strong for me. Goes on white and creates more oil in hair from all the brushing to get rid of the white! Will not repurchase or even finish the one I purchased.
I think this is my favorite thermal water. This is really good for sensitive skin. I like to use this as a refresher or when my skin is irritated. It's nice to use after exfoliating too or after moisturizing. I don't however particularly like this for setting my makeup though.
This is a great fuchsia that's not over the top which makes it very wearable. Most bright colors similar to this don't really look good on me for everyday use but this could easily work as a day time look. The color payoff is great and very buildable. Took off one lippie because I find it a bit drying.
I adore this scent so much that i had to purchase four to last me all through fall! Smells like apples, pumpkins, leaves and fresh air all at once. The perfect fall candle! Also not so expensive if you can catch them on sale.
Very girly lemony vanilla scent. I have the body mist and I like it (not as much as Paris amour though!). The bottle looks cute on my vanity. It being a LE and all wouldn't give me the opportunity to repurchase but I don't think I would given the chance. The scent is nice but other BBW scents are better in my opinion.
This is my absolute favorite fall nailpolish. I love the formula - two coats looks great, lasts a week with a good top coat. Also the formula retains its consistency until you finish the bottle. And the color is gorgeous. It is the perfect dark red that I think would look great on many skin tones as I use this when I am pale or tanned. Highly recommend!
I use this only on the ends of my hair. When used on damp hair, I feel like the product speeds up drying time and leaves my hair soft and shiny while taming frizzies. When I curl my hair with my flat iron I like to use a very small amount of the oil and run it through my hair from the mid-ends. I dislike the packaging because it is hard to control how much product you'll be using. Also a glass bottle and oily hands sets the stage for a disaster! Only other con is that if you have to use too much your hair turns into a greasy mess.
While I don't find that this makes my makeup last noticeably longer I do like this spray for its other uses. I sometimes spray this after I moisturize as I feel it helps my lotion absorb better and this adds a little extra moisture to skin that feels dry. I like this as a refresher throughout the day to keep makeup looking clean and fresh. This is also useful when I may have accidentally applied to much makeup and want to tone it down a bit. And finally I sometimes spray this directly on my foundation brush before applying my mineralized powder foundation as it allows for a smooth application. Overall great product to have on hand.

I have purchased these many times. Blot papers are a must in any of my makeup bags and these are an affordable and accessible option. I have combo skin which is mostly oily in my t zone and I am able to remove all the excess oil throughout the day using one sheet. I don't find that they remove much makeup either. Will continue to repurchase.

Got this as a sample and couldn't even finish that. I broke out instantaneously. Will obviously not repurchase. Still gave this a few lippies because the formulation is nice and this may work for dry/combo skin whereas my skin is more on the oily/combo side.
Def my favorite concealer. For me this lasts all day (used with a setting spray). I love this under my eyes - no irritation and no creasing. Works well covering breakouts and imperfections. I love that this provides amazing coverage without feeling the slightest bit heavy. As others have mentioned, the pump makes it hard to control how much product you want to use but it doesn't bother me all that much. Will def repurchase.
