Splendide Body Scrub by Annick Goutal

$75/3.4 Fl. Oz.,

Enriched with glycerin and coconut oil to moisturize and protect skin, this scrub gently removes dead cells, leaving skin smooth and silky. The formula, based on a sugar crystal complex, transforms from a gel-like texture into a milky emulsion when mixed with water. Anjou Rose extract provides an addictive sensory experience.

“I absolutely love the floral scent and it leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.”
—What’s Up? magazine Receptionist Becky Rodriguez, 22, Annapolis

SolarOil by CND

$12.50/0.5 Fl. Oz.,

This award-winning nail and cuticle oil is infused with jojoba oil and vitamin E to create stronger, healthier nails, along with hydrated cuticles. The blend of natural oils and vitamins also aids in conditioning nails with frequent use.

“I don’t have naturally dry hands or nails, but this product did make them feel softer. And I felt like I was taking care of my nails!”
—What’s Up? magazine Intern Chelsea Hanson, 21, Annapolis

Anti-Residue Cleanse by Unwash

$32/10 Fl. Oz.,

A mild, yet effective cleanser made with Cocamide Dipa, created from the cleansing properties of coconut oil, is gentle on the scalp and hair. Other natural oils, including babassu and moringa oleifera seed oil, help to moisturize strands and protect the scalp. The pH-balanced formula lifts away build-up without stripping hair of essential oils.

“Where was this when I was a greasy teenager? This shampoo is a squeaky clean experience for my fine, limp hair!”
—Beauty Buzz Member Linda Hannigan, 56, Arnold
