So, I've had a hard time finding a good lip balm that really hydrates and moisturizes my lips. I gave this product 3 lippies because of the HORRIBLE sun protection it offers; might as well not put the SPF 15 label on there. I layer another lip balm with actual sun protection (banana boat sport which contains avobenzone for spf) over this during the day. Don't be fooled by deep renewal it promises because it doesn't absorb very well. However, I recommend this product if you're looking for something super cheap ( $1 something at Target) and offers average hydration for lips. Those reasons are also why I will buy again.
Styling Products -Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Serum

So, I have naturally frizz-free hair, but with the harsh winter weather and the fact that I've been dabbling in a bunch of different hair products to produce volume in my hair, I've felt the need to reach for this serum. Here is my process after a typical shower: I put up my wet hair in a micro towel and wait until it's no longer dripping wet, then I apply one pump of this serum and comb through to get it spread evenly. No matter what I put in my hair to style after this step, my hair will remain silky and frizz-free!! This serum is absolutely amazing and it smells good too. My only gripe is the ridiculously expensive price tag but when I buy the medium size one, it lasts me a long time, so I guess the price isn't such a big deal. I highly recommend this serum to anyone who has any frizz or static-y issues with their hair. My only warning is that this serum is VERY concentrated, as in don't glob on pounds of it in your hair. Use as minimally as possible; I have thick hair that reaches to the middle of my back and I only use one pump which I spread on both palms and finger comb through midshaft to ends of my hair.
Moisturizers -Biore - Nourish Moisture Lotion SPF 15

I really don't understand the bad reviews on here about this lotion. I personally love nourish SO MUCH. I also have very sensitive skin especially towards fragrance and heavy moisturizer. I use this daily under makeup, sunscreen or alone. I've had no breakouts from using this and am amazed at how freshly moisturized it left my face feeling. I've even started using this at night around my eyes and my nose because I have to use a very drying face cleanser to clean my nose piercing. It absorbs into my skin quickly and leaves no trace of oiliness. This moisturizer hasn't failed me and I say that anyone should try this despite the negative reviews it's received!
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion

ABSOLUTE BEST LOTION ever! I used to have seperate lotions for my body, but after using aveeno because my skin became more sensitive to fragrance over the years I haven't looked back. I have the large and travel size of this lotion because I just can't live without it. The texture is very smooth and the lotion itself is wonderfully absorbent. No cons with this product whatsoever. I would definitely recommend this to anyone willing to try something that will change their beauty regimen forever.
I absolutely LOVE this lip balm! I've tried countless others; from drugstore brands to high end brands and none come out better that kiss my face! I always get the strawberry one because it smells great. I have to admit that I've strayed to other brands over time but I just keep coming back to this one. Looking at the ingredient list, it somewhat lives up the "organic" claim. Overall, keeps my lips hydrated even during the winter. Would definitely recommend this.
