There’s always something exciting showing up on What’s Up? Media’s doorstep—from the latest hair and skin care products to the best cosmetics on the market. And who better to test this stuff than our own readers? With the introduction of our Beauty Buzz Team in December—along with a few staff members, who just couldn’t stop themselves from sneaking into our samples closet—we bring you this month’s “Products We Love.” A collection of items tried and tested by staff and readers alike so you know What’s Up? in the world of beauty and beyond.

Nail Glam Lacquer in Tea in Tokyo by Jovee Co.

$8 each |
These luxury, vegan nail lacquers are USA-made and available in a host of classic and on-trend hues. Each hand-poured polish is also free of toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, and camphor.

“What I liked most about the product was its consistency. Great coverage and resilience! It lasted eight days with an additional top coat application.”
—BB Member Jenn King, 35, Edgewater

Purely Age Defying Nourishing Cleansing Oil by Jurlique

$38 (200 ml) |
Castor, sunflower, blackcurrant, sesame, and meadowfoam seed extracts make up this replenishing deep cleanser that gently removes makeup and other impurities while hydrating the skin and improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

“A lovely consistency with a little exfoliation sand mixed in, which also made for a nice texture. I really liked how my skin felt so much softer after using the product each night. I wouldn’t change a thing!”
—Accounts Receivable Deneen Mercer, 45, Riva

TrueLipids Hydrate, Correct & Perfect Lotion by Cheryl Lee MD

$50 |
This dermatologist invented and tested lotion (for face and body) is optimized to restore an effective skin barrier without signs of irritation, like redness and scaling, while also targeting fine lines and wrinkles. Free of fragrance, parabens, polyethylene glycol (PEG), and formaldehyde, this hypoallergenic formula is suitable for all ages.

“I highly recommend this product. I used it on my dry, calloused hands and within two weeks they went from rough to ravenous!”
—BB Member Charlene Marcum, 60, Easton
