A few months ago, we told you that we had an exciting new partnership in the works with Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW). Each year, the organization of 5,500 industry insiders holds their Beauty Insiders’ Choice Awards (basically the Oscars of the beauty world) where they select the latest and greatest from all of the year’s newly launched products—it’s one of the most coveted awards in the beauty world.
Well, we’re happy to say that we’re ready to reveal the details of our collab! Today, we’re launching two limited edition boxes with CEW featuring winners and finalists from their Insider’s Choice awards. If you prefer more high-end products, you can opt for the CEW Prestige box, which includes products from Julep, IT cosmetics, Living Proof, La Fresh, and Elizabeth Arden.
For anyone looking to find out about the best drugstore brands, you’ll want to try the CEW Mass box. There you’ll be able to test the hottest releases from Revlon, Simple, Burt’s Bees, L’Oreal, Nivea, and Olay. For those of you who are major beauty aficionados, we suggest snagging both for a special price of $26, but regardless of which one you choose, each is chock full of the best new beauty goodies around!
Dying to find out even more about this partnership? Here’s everything you should know about CEW, the products that we love, and more.
If you’ve been keeping up with us on the blog, then you probably remember our announcement about our upcoming partnership with Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) and their Beauty Insiders’ Choice Awards. If not, here’s a quick refresher: Every year, CEW and its members review the year’s latest and greatest products in the CEW Beauty Insiders’ Choice Awards. Then, one product in each of the 30 categories are crowned best of the best. This June, we’re bringing you two limited edition boxes featuring a selection of these finalists and the winning products!
The winners won’t be announced until May 17, but in the meantime, our editors have called out a few of their favorite picks from among the 186 finalists. Read on to find out why these seven beauty products are some of our top picks for this year.
Charisse – Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial
"This product is a game changer. Not only does it have a calming scent, but the vitamin C helps even out my skin tone, and leaves it feeling smooth. Its heavy texture hydrates my dry skin overnight, which helps me feel refreshed—and my complexion is definitely brighter in the morning!"
With tons of new beauty products added to the shelves every year, it can feel a little overwhelming trying to discern great products from so-so options. How can you possibly know which cream will keep your locks in check and what red lipstick has the best staying power without buying every last one (aside from signing up for Birchbox, that is)? Luckily, Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) and their 5500 beauty insiders have done the work for you.
Every year, CEW and its members review the year’s latest and greatest products in the CEW Beauty Insiders’ Choice Awards where one product in each of the 30 categories will be crowned best of the best. More than 650 products were considered for this year’s awards and now 186 finalists have moved that much closer to receiving the industry’s highest honor. The winners will be announced on May 17, so be sure to check back on the blog for a full report of the top picks from this year.
Even better news? This June, we’re teaming up with CEW to bring you two limited edition boxes featuring a selection of finalist and winning products! (One box will be filled with prestige category products while the other will have mass products). Keep an eye out for more details on those boxes coming soon. In the meantime though, here are just six of the nominated categories and their selected finalists from this year’s awards:
