Repair & Reconstruct Deep Conditioning Hair Masque by BCL Naturals 

Restore and strengthen damaged hair with this vegan deep conditioning masque. Free of sulfates and parabens, this formula nourishes and revitalizes your tresses with ingredients like organic sea kelp, aloe vera, and organic quinoa protein. Massage into wet hair after shampooing, and leave on for up to 30 minutes. For an even deeper treatment, cover with a plastic cap and apply heat, or leave the masque on overnight. 

 “This hair masque is easy to apply while in the shower or bath. The aroma is heavenly, and the results are immediate, and leaves smooth, hydrated hair.” —Beauty Buzz Member Jessica Vermillion, 39, Crofton

Lavender Organic Hand Sanitizer by Dr. Bronner 
Keep your hands fresh and clean during cold and flu season with this travel-friendly organic hand sanitizer. Dr. Bronner’s simple formula kills germs and bacteria while offering the subtle, relaxing scent of fresh lavender. The spray nozzle makes for quick and easy sanitizing when soap and water aren’t available. 

 “I keep this in my purse, especially during cold and flu season. It’s great to use on shopping cart handles and other nasty places in the world, and it doesn’t feel sticky after using it like some hand sanitizers.” —Beauty Buzz Member Jennifer Macris, 50, Annapolis

Rejuvenate your complexion with this firming and brightening anti-aging moisturizer, perfect for all skin types. This lightweight formula repairs uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, and dark spots, as well as tightens loose skin, and offers a matte finish. This cream is gentle enough for your morning and night skincare routine. To use, smooth over your face, neck, and décolleté.

 “I really like that I can repair and protect my skin with this lightweight, anti-aging cream. I feel my skin is brighter, smoother, and looks fresher.” —Beauty Buzz Member Cathy Belcher, 65, Edgewater
