Women Who Test Beauty Products All Day Tell You Which Ones Are The Best
May 15, 2009
This week on Better.tv, we’re talking about the winners of the CEW beauty awards – a group of products that were chosen as the best and brightest by over 4,000 beauty insiders.
The competition separates products into “mass” (findable at a drugstore) and “prestige” (more expensive). Below, the winners from three very seasonally relevant categories.
Bath and Body Treatment
In the Mass category, Avon Anew Professional Stretch Mark Smoother ($17) took the prize with its exclusive stretch-mark-reducing technology.
The Prestige product, Ojon Rare Harvest Tawaka “The Ball” ($55), is a body polish (in ball form) with the same amount of antioxidants as 2,834 lbs of blueberries, which is a lot of antioxidants/blueberries.
Hair Care, Style & Coloring
Avon’s Advance Techniques Grey Root Touch-Up ($6), the Mass winner, is a mascara-like wand you can use to touch up greys between colorings – perfect and perfectly priced if you’re pinching beauty pennies.
The CEW’s Prestige hair pick, Living Proof No Frizz cream ($30), is a good antidote to the styling woes brought on by summer humidity.
Before you head to the beach, it might be a good idea to pick up a can of Aveeno Continuous Protection Active Sunblock Spray SPF 70 ($10), voted best Mass sun product – it’s stronger sun protection than most, and the spray can makes application easy.
If it’s a self-tan you’re after, Clarins Delicious Self-Tanning Cream ($42) is a good bet with cocoa butter, cocoa bean, and a rich chocolate scent.
You can see a list of all the winners on the CEW website.
