Eye Wrinkle Cream by ANNEMARIE BÖRLIND

$32.99/0.67 fl. oz.,

Achieve a youthful look with this vegetarian eye cream, designed to combat dryness and signs of aging, such as wrinkles and crow’s feet. Made with carrot extract and the active ingredient organic sesame oil, this rich formula smooths and nourishes, as well as restores skin’s elasticity. Suitable for all skin types, apply morning and night around the eyes with your ring finger, and gently massage.

 “It’s all-natural and has no perfume, which I liked, as it didn’t irritate my eyes at all. It left my skin soft and moisturized. Just a small amount left my skin feeling
soft and plumped.”
—Beauty Buzz Member Caroline

Mineral Face SPF 30 Cucumber Matte Finish Moisturizer by COOLA

$36/1.7 fl. oz.,

Just because the weather is chilly doesn’t mean you don’t need SPF! This vegan, mineral matte moisturizer is infused with cucumber to soothe skin, and antioxidant rosehip oil to protect it from environmental pollutants. The sheer and lightweight formula hydrates skin for a glowing complexion all day.


“The texture is smooth and feels amazing on your skin! I was expecting a thick cream like most sunscreens, but this was light and smooth, and didn’t have a strong smell.” —Beauty Buzz Member Kathy Meyer, 48, Severna Park

Lip Balm by BeeHavin’


Moisturize those chapped lips with this all-natural lip balm, made with just three ingredients: beeswax, avocado oil, and essential oils. Choose from delicious flavors like lemon, orange ginger, or peppermint (or buy all three!). Formulated for all-day wear, the dry winter air doesn’t stand a chance against this hydrating lip balm.

 “The texture is very soft and leaves your lips feeling smooth and moisturized. It only has three ingredients and they are all-natural. That is a big plus for me! It has a pleasant light scent and a soft texture without being greasy, too creamy, or too heavy on my lips.” —Beauty Buzz Member Maria Winters, 41, Annapolis
