Travelux Face Care Set by Sase Skincare


$52/0.5 and 1 Fl. Oz.,

This TSA-compliant duo contains powerful antioxidants, nourishing oils, and brightening ingredients to rejuvenate, repair, and protect skin against dehydration and dullness. The Hydra-Purifying Cleanser combines the effectiveness of a cleanser, exfoliator, and mask in one bottle and the Advanced Hydra-Illuminating Skin Therapy delivers the benefits of a moisturizer, serum, eye cream, and neck cream in a one-step solution.

“How convenient is this?! Two small products to cover all of your face care needs when traveling! I’m running right out to the store to buy this as soon as I finish what I currently have!”

—Beauty Buzz Member Cathy Belcher, 64, Edgewater

Sébium H20 by Bioderma

$16.90/500 Ml.,

This cleansing micellar water gently purifies skin while removing makeup, thanks to a patented complex, called Fluidactiv, that regulates sebum quality to keep pores unclogged and skin clear. The hypoallergenic, paraben-free, no-rinse formula is enriched with purifying agents that prevent skin from drying out.

“I use this product after washing my face. It picks up every trace of makeup. My face is left feeling soft, clean, and refreshed. It’s a great alternative to facial cleaning wipes, too.”

—Beauty Buzz Member Nina Rodgers, 35, Crofton

Bloom 23 by My Daughter Fragrances


$85/1.78 Fl. Oz.,

A gardenia flower makes up the heart of this clean fragrance, which is rounded with rich vanilla and soft ylang ylang. My Daughter Fragrances focus on traditional French perfumery, created to transform and renew the souls of its wearers. Bloom 23 offers a bright, clear scent that’s classically feminine.

“My Daughter’s Bloom 23, has a hint of roses, usually the kiss of death for my delicate airway. To my surprise and delight, Bloom 23 did not evoke the usual sneezing response. It is a lovely, light fragrance that lasts a full day.”

—Beauty Buzz Member Charlene Marcum, 60, Easton
