Blissful Body Butter by Coastal Salt & Soul

This whipped body butter offers skin nourishment and rejuvenation, thanks to the moisturizing properties of safflower seed and Shea butter and the healing ability of sea kelp. The formula absorbs immediately into skin, leaving a delicate, fresh scent behind.

“It gets high marks in every category—divine aroma, attractive chic packaging, silky smooth texture and consistency, and it’s a beautifully soft pink color! I really love this product!” —Beauty Buzz Member Gina Roter, 59, Severna Park

Milk & Honeycomb Soap by Fran Ngong

Handmade in Baltimore, this gluten-free, non-GMO soap is formulated with olive, coconut, soybean, sweet almond oils, honey, and organic goat's milk to moisturize and cleanse the skin. Raw oats and ground almonds add a little texture that serves as a natural exfoliant.

“It is the kind of soap you would expect at a luxury spa. My skin felt and smelled like I had just had a luxury body treatment. It exceeded my expectations!” —Beauty Buzz Member Kristen Porter, 49, Annapolis

Argan Body Oil by ECO.


$11.49/3.21 Fl. Oz.,

A luxurious and rich body oil for intense hydration. Formulated with pomegranate seed oil, vitamin E, grapefruit peel oil, and ginger root oil to provide anti-aging benefits, like enhanced skin elasticity.

“Rich, luxurious body and massage oil that left my skin feeling smooth and hydrated. Great to use after a shower or right before bed!” —Beauty Buzz Member Lorna “B” Leone, 67, Stevensville
