This Month’s Picks From the Beauty Buzz Team

By Becca Newell

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.

JOURNÉE Bio-Restorative Day Cream by NeoCutis

$140 / 30 ml | The Sandel Center for Facial Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa, Annapolis 
An anti-aging skincare treatment with hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and broad spectrum SPF, this multifunctional cream hydrates skin, protects against UV rays, and helps smooth the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The non-greasy formula is free of color additives and fragrances, and it isn’t tested on animals.

“Do you want visible skincare results in 2016? Try this one-step anti-aging skincare product that offers the benefits of four products in one: skin revitalization, anti-oxidant care, sun protection, and hydration. I love it!” —Senior Account Executive-Annapolis Kathy Sauve, 52, Annapolis

“I’m Real” Tomato Sheet Mask by Tony Moly

$3 |
Ideal for all skin types, this tomato-infused, three-layer sheet mask transforms dry, dull skin into a radiant, revitalized complexion. Simply apply mask for 20 to 30 minutes to reveal hydrated, healthier-looking skin. Formulated without talc, parabens, or color additives, the treatment contains peach fruit extract to refresh and brighten complexion.

“I absolutely loved this product. Not only did my skin feel hydrated, but it looked healthy. This could be a go-to product for anyone that needs a little pick me up!” —BB Member Britt Towner, 25, Annapolis

Perk Up Dry Shampoo by amika

$22 / 5.3 Oz. |
Safe for color-treated and natural hair alike, this dry shampoo not only absorbs excess oil and dirt, but moisturizes and strengthens tresses, while repairing split ends and enhancing shine. The aluminum- and talc-free formula also helps to create extra volume.

“Dry shampoos usually don’t smell the best, but I was surprised when I sprayed this one! It made my hair smell so good! And the packaging is the cutest!” —BB Member Alice Hannigan, 22, Arnold
