Movies have the Oscars and music has the Grammys. But when it comes to honoring the most inventive new eye treatment or can’t-live-without sunscreen, we turn to the annual Insiders’ Choice Beauty Awards given by the Cosmetic Executive Women. Exactly who’s behind CEW? Over 6,000 influential execs from the beauty industry including big-name brands like Coty, Shiseido, and Clinique.
Each year, CEW board members sift through and test over 700 entries to highlight some of the most exciting recent skincare and makeup launches. You may recognize some previously nominated favorites from awards seasons past like GlamGlow’s Super Mud-Clearing Treatment and Ojon’s Rare Blend Total Hair Therapy Oil. In short, when CEW speaks, the rest of the beauty biz listens—including us!
In celebration of this year’s awards we’re giving away three goodie bags filled to the brim with dozens of this year’s all-star nominees. You’ll find Birchbox faves like COOLA sunscreen, Nexxus haircare, and Yes To all-natural face and body treatments. Check out Instagram, Twitter, and our Birchbloggers network (join here) to find out how to win one. And check back for more CEW surprises in the next few weeks!
