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.
