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!

 Green Tea Eye Mask by Sephora


Relax and revive those tired eyes! This green tea natural fiber eye mask will refresh eyes, while offering a smoothing appearance for a wide-awake, energized look. Position a patch under each eye and sit back and relax for 15 minutes. When time is up, remove the patches and gently massage excess serum into the skin.

“The eye pads felt very nice and cooling. These force you to lie down and relax, so it’s a good way to have a ‘spa moment.’” —Beauty Buzz Member Jennifer Macris, 50, Annapolis

The Wizard: Detangling Primer by Amika 


Tame frizz and flyaways with this multi-benefit hair primer. This weightless spray not only preps hair and protects it from heat damage, but it also detangles and strengthens, leaving hair radiant. This primer is formulated without the use of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and gluten. Avocado Oil nourishes hair, while Provitamin B5 protects it from breaking. Simply mist evenly throughout damp hair before detangling and/or using heat.

“It’s a great product packaged in a fun way! The price is fair based on the amount you get in the spray bottle. A little goes a long way! As suggested, I applied to damp hair before brushing and blow drying. It left my hair soft, shiny, and smelling wonderful! The label is fun and colorful, and the smell is so fresh and fruity!” —Beauty Buzz Member Kathy Meyer, 47, Severna Park

Face Finishing Moisturizer by Perricone MD


This lightweight moisturizer is formulated with antioxidants and nutrients to nourish and rejuvenate the skin, while leaving you with a dewy, glowing complexion. Vitamin C Ester and DMAE are two key ingredients that help smooth and firm skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Apply a pearl-sized amount and gently massage into skin in circular motions for total hydration.

“I have used a few of Perricone’s products in the past and am never disappointed. The same goes for this moisturizer. After using day and night for almost three weeks, I clearly saw a difference in my skin tone and pore size...they actually shrunk! I wasn’t crazy about the smell, but better-looking skin was well worth it.” —Beauty Buzz Member Starr Grill, 48, Crownsville
