Hi Liz! I've been following your blog for quite some time now. I really like reading your posts because they are so helpful to me in so many ways. I really like and appreciate that you care about affordable beauty!

So, I have really oily skin. As if that isn't enough, I also sweat rather excessively.

Also, I just like to tell you how I enjoy reading your blog, and that your posts are so helpful. More power, Liz!
