'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.
