Hi. I??m Ying Chu, Marie Claire??s Beauty Director. I'm here to tell you about Prix d'Excellence de la Beaut?? which is Marie Claire's prestigious beauty awards. We work with our international auditions to come up with the best beauty products of the year. Some of our favorites include this Lanc??me Teint Miracle Foundation which is really just a really light wonderful foundation and it gives skin sort of a supernatural look. It looks perfect but it doesn't look or feel like you're wearing makeup. Something else that we really loved that actually hasn't launched in the US yet is 2 products that actually won for technology are these Garnier and L'Oreal Solaire Oils. They are sun tanning oil essentially but we all want really safe about the sun and these have actually built in SPF in them where sun tanning oils never used to. This is safe and get a little bit of color and, if you do spend too much time in the sun, Clinique??s even better clinical dark spot corrector is just a fantastic way to get rid of spots, sun spots and even your skin tone without using hydroquinone which is a dermatology standard but can be a little bit abrasive for a lot of skin. So, for the national segment of the award, each country works with journalists in their own country so that we would have a really unbiased look at the best products out there. Some of our favorites include Chanel ROUGE COCO lipstick and it's just a really buttery lipstick. Feels like you're not wearing anything but it gives a really fantastic color [unknown]. For skin care, we really love the Clarins Bright Quest Daily Moisturizing Lotion. It has an SPF but it feels light enough that you can wear it in the summer but also is more stressing enough and lady enough that it feels like it's doing something for you in the winter. On top of that, it's got a lot of intense botanical extracts and it does actually even out your skin tone over all. So, you're looking really glowy all year round. And then, 1 category that I think is really important is the Eco category. So, we were just looking at companies that are taking an extra effort to use sustainable ingredients, recyclable packaging, something that stood out to us is the Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair. It??s a conditioner essentially but it's smooth and coats your hair without silicone and uses a lot of botanicals instead. I hope you love the products as much as we do. You can actually read more about them in the May issue and go to marieclaire.com to win all of them and do it soon before the staff actually snags them all up.
