DAILY GLOW PRESENTS INAUGURAL “GLOW-GETTER” AWARDS SPOTLIGHTING THE 85 MOST INNOVATIVE BEAUTY PRODUCTS OF 2011
Beauty and Medical Experts Name the Standout Products in Six Categories: Skin, Hair, Makeup, Hand/Foot/Nail Care, Biggest Breakthroughs and Editors’ Picks
December 16, 2011/NEW YORK, NY /PRNewswire/ — Gone are the daunting days of pacing the drugstore aisles and wasting hard-earned money on gimmicky products that simply don’t deliver as Daily Glow (www.dailyglow.com), a leading health and beauty authority, announces its first-annual Daily Glow Awards. After in-depth research, testing and analysis of thousands of products in the marketplace, the 85 carefully selected products have been declared first year winners and granted “Glow-Getter” status, an accolade recognizing the most inventive, state-of-the-art and truly original products of 2011 within six categories: Skin, Hair, Makeup, Hand/Foot/Nail Care, Biggest Breakthroughs and Editors’ Picks. The inaugural Daily Glow Award winners will be highlighted in an expansive editorial feature on DailyGlow.com/Awards beginning December 16, 2011.
A prestigious part of the Everyday Health portfolio of health websites, Daily Glow curated an esteemed judging panel of 17 beauty and medical experts in dermatology, cosmetic chemistry, makeup and hair styling – including well-respected doctors, top medical school professors, leading researchers, popular salon owners, and celebrity artists – who scoured the market to nominate and then ultimately choose products that deliver above and beyond anything else available to consumers whether because of groundbreaking formulations, cutting-edge ingredients, or novel approaches to solving problems. Readers will find more than just a simple list of winners on DailyGlow.com as each expert weighs in on the winners, sharing details of what makes them exceptional products worthy of commendation.
Renowned dermatologist to the stars and Daily Glow Skin & Beauty Expert Jessica Wu, MD, (author of “Feed Your Face”) says, “Consumers are confused by the countless product choices, all too often with unfamiliar medical jargon. Daily Glow eliminates the guessing game and stress for readers by recognizing the best and most innovative beauty products of the year.”
Whether getting glammed up with the best in makeup and manicures, focusing on their hair to nourish color and cure frizz, or safeguarding their skin with everything from self-tanner to moisturizer and masks, Daily Glow readers will be well-prepared for a beautifully healthy 2012 especially with “Glow-Getter” winners like:
- A body wash that’s moisturizing enough, it just might eliminate the need for lotion
- A makeup brush that erases the presence of dark circles
- A sunscreen that not only protects skin from the sun’s damaging rays (which cause wrinkles) but also helps reduce the appearance of already existing wrinkles
The Biggest Breakthroughs include 27 new, leading-edge products that represent a meaningful change in today’s approach to beauty within hot topic categories like hair care, sun protection, acne treatment, lash lengthening and personal hygiene. And, although no easy task for beauty buffs of their caliber, top beauty bloggers (Nadine Haobsh, Julia Coney, Amber Katz, Risi-Leanne Baranja, and Annie Fritz) as well as Daily Glow staff serve as the experts behind the Editors’ Picks. From dynamic dry shampoo to miraculous mascaras, they each chose one “can’t live without it” product that stands apart from the hundreds they see and sample throughout the year.
“These Glow-Getter products represent the perfect intersection of health and beauty, and another way Daily Glow delivers useful information and inspiration to help people look and feel their best,” says Daily Glow Editor Liesa Goins.
