'Healthy Beauty' Awards
For the seventh year, SELF honors the top-performing makeup, skin
and hair treatments as chosen by more than 1,300 readers nationwide to
help other consumers feel confident in purchasing what they see at
makeup counters or on drugstore shelves.
Testers tried 1,174 new products from which twenty-four makeup
winners were selected, as well as 20 facial treatments, 21 hair
products, 9 body products and 4 sun care products.
To qualify for the 2006 Healthy Beauty Awards, products must have
been new formulas (not new colors or fragrances) launched between April
2005 and March 2006. Products were judged on the basis of readers'
survey rankings and comments. Texture, scent, ease of use, benefits and
overall results were among the criteria considered. The products
receiving the most top rankings and positive comments were the winners.
