Youtuber own product advertising

I watch a few YouTubers often but recently with one in particular I'm getting annoyed.

I know the pro YouTubers have to make a living from their channel but the constant advertising of their own products is such a turn off and I feel takes advantage of younger viewers.

If a vlog is sponsored/paid it has to be clear to the viewer but it seems if its their own product  they can just casually fling it in.

One particular YouTuber does it so often in her  vlogs I'm bordering on not watching. Trouble is aside from this I like her content. There's always a handily placed DVD or just blatant buy my stuff spiels.

Another I watch does it sometimes but in a much more subtle fashion & far less often with eyelashes.

A third has a homeware range at Primark but again it doesn't seem as jarring but I'm sure encourages the younger viewers to buy.

What do you think?

Do you find it a turn off?
