Want to know what’s up in the world of beauty and beyond? Look no further! Here you’ll find the latest and greatest hair, skin, and makeup products, reviewed by our Beauty Buzz Team (and the occasional member of our What’s Up? staff!). Read on, and decide for yourself whether you want to use it or lose it!

Rescue Balm by Air Repair Skincare


Revive your dry, tired skin with this multi-use skin salve and lip balm. Dubbed as “the Swiss Army Knife of beauty products,” this paraben-, petroleum-, and mineral-free balm calms and protects skin with key ingredients like geranium, lavender, and sweet almond oil. Use anywhere on the body for dry skin relief.


“This product is thick and rich. I personally don’t mind that, as my skin is mostly dry and I like heavy moisturizers. This product absorbs quickly though, and leaves the skin feeling soft and bright. The name “rescue balm” fits great. It feels like this product can take you from extreme dryness to soft, smooth, hydrated skin in seconds; and the effect lasts for a long time.” —Beauty Buzz Member Maria Winters, 41, Annapolis

Night Beauty Dry Botanical Oil by Jenetiqa


Enhance your complexion with this all-natural, anti-aging dry oil. With ingredients like Argan oil, Jojoba oil, and Maracuja oil, this formula will boost collagen and elastin, while revitalizing and moisturizing the skin. Use this product alone or mixed in with your favorite moisturizer or serum for an added boost.

“The package was simple and elegant and looks great on my beauty stand. Loved that the product is applied using a dropper. My skin looks refreshed and supple. I use this before my moisturizer.” —Beauty Buzz Member Diana Emerson, 38, Hanover

Curl Addict Mascara by Luscious Cosmetics


Pop those eyes with this waterproof and smudge-proof mascara, dedicated to curl and define eyelashes with a carefully-crafted curling wand. This formula is also vegan, cruelty-, and paraben-free, and contains conditioning ingredients for full, soft lashes.


“I love how the wand reaches even the outer ends of my eyes, because that area is hard to reach without messing up, often ending with upper and lower lashes stuck together. This truly is a clump-free mascara that defines and lengthens lashes without clumping. Easy to use on lower lashes also.” —Beauty Buzz Member Cathy Belcher, 65, Edgewater
