Lip Gloss in Funhouse by Armour Beauty


$24/6.5 mL,

This vegan lip gloss, rich in natural oil and butters, hydrates and protects lips in a beautiful bright raspberry opaque color. The paraben- and gluten-free gloss helps you achieve moisturized lips for long-lasting wear, and the vanilla/grapefruit scent is an added bonus!

“This lip gloss glides on, the color lasts, and scent and taste is nice. I felt glamorous wearing it. It’s a win-win!”

—Beauty Buzz Member Valerie Smith, 47, Severna Park

Jojoba Restore Face Oil by Ogee


$44/20 mL,

A face oil that instantly conditions skin by nurturing the growth of new and healthier skin cells. The dermatologist-tested formula contains jojoba seed oil that strengthens the top layer of skin and reduces moisture loss from the skin’s surface and antibacterial properties that target skin irritations and clear blemishes.

“This product gets high marks in all categories—aroma, packaging, texture, and formulation. I expected the face oil to “sit” on my skin, but it quickly soaks in. I’m running right out to the store to buy!”

—Beauty Buzz Member Gina Roter, 59, Severna Park

Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator by Belli


$32/1.5 Oz.,

This lightweight facial hydrator, formulated with Vitamin C and grape seed oil to boost radiance, can be applied morning and night to moisturize skin. Allergy tested and free from parabens, artificial dyes, and fragrances, it’s suitable for all skin types.

“This product delivers the quality expected in a much higher cost hydrator for a very reasonable cost. It exceeded my expectations. Thumbs up, ladies!”

—Beauty Buzz Member Charlene Marcum, 60, Easton
