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.
We’ve got a little girl crush on singer-songwriter Madi Diaz. The songstress grew up in Lancaster, PA, the middle of Pennsylvania Dutch country, before attending Boston’s Berklee College of Music. (You might also recognize her from the 2005 documentary, Rock School.) Equal parts pop and country-tinged Americana, her debut single Let’s Go has been playing on repeat at Birchbox HQ. Earlier this month, we saw Madi play live at the Mercury Lounge and loved her retro-tinged style and rock star long locks. We caught up with the talented road warrior to find out her tour must-haves. Click through for Madi’s everyday beauty necessities.

Sometimes we get so caught up in finding the newest beauty item around that we forget about the classics. While the hot new things are fun, any skin cream that’s been around for 100 years clearly has something going for it. That’s certainly the case with Nivea. The German company is celebrating its grand anniversary with a partnership with Rihanna (the songstress’ song, California King Bed, is featured in their new commercial) and a special edition Nivea Crème.
While the brand certainly hopes that Rihanna will help them reach a broader, younger audience through her social media reach, they’re also introducing a new technology, Hydra IQ, to their lotions and body washes. According to WWD, “the technology is based on Nobel-prize-winning science that, in a nutshell, opens water channels and penetrates water into deeper levels of skin.”
Are you a Nivea Fan? Personally I’ve always enjoyed their ad campaigns, Touch & Be Touched and Kiss & Be Kissed, but haven’t had much excuse to use their products. This just might be the push I need!
