CEW Announces Beauty Oscar Nominees

March 12, 2008 by Bryn

Recently, the beauty industry's equivalent of Oscar nominations were announced by the Cosmetic Executive Women group. CEW, comprised of top beauty editors and other high-profile industry pros, voted on nearly 600 product finalists for their 2008 Beauty Awards. Of course there's always some office politics going around, and some of these products have massive advertising campaigns with the budgets to match, but isn't it the same kind of story when it's time to choose a best picture? Nonetheless, it is pretty cool to see what the best of the best choose to keep in their medicine cabinets. The categories were extensive, ranging from bath care to men's fragrance, so we chose our top 3 preferences from the Body, Face, and Hair Care nominees. For a complete list, check out cew.org, and check back with SheFinds after the May 2nd ceremony for a commentary on the winners.

Dove's Cream Oil Body Wash in Ultra Rich ($5.29) is probably the lushest body wash I have ever used. Its thick, silky concentration won't wash right off in the shower, which allows your skin to absorb the moisture and soothing fragrance. The Philosophy Inner Grace Perfumed Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel ($22) is a 3-in-1 cleanser for your body and hair, with a sweet feminine fragrance that doesn't overpower. For afterbath care, the editors are ga-ga over Burt's Bees Radiance Lotion ($9) for all-over-body moisture.

For fighting blemishes, nothing beats Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Blemish Therapy ($28). It's a zit-zapper for grown-ups, without the nasty drying effects of adolescent creams. The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream ($26) is highly recommended for replenishing skin's elasticity and helping your face appear smoother. For ladies with little time on their hands (that would be all of us, right?) these Garnier Nutritioniste Nutri-Pure Detoxifying Wet Cleansing Towelettes ($6) are quick, easy, and super efficient.

When you just need your hair to shut up and behave, Frederic Fekkai Coiff Controle Ironless Straightening Balm ($25) will take control of the situation, smoothing out unwanted frizz. For a healthy dose of vitamins and nutrients, try L'Oreal's Vive Pro Nutri Gloss Shampoo ($5). And color-treated hair will love Clairol Nice'n Easy Colorseal Conditioning Gloss ($4.59) for its sexy shine.
