Women's Health Best of Beauty

I always find it interesting what other women, especially large groups of women, list as their favorite products. All those beauty magazines that run "Best of" articles? They get me hook, line and sinker at the check out lane! Women's Health just released their list of the best products. What I love about this list is that while they tell you their readers' favorites, they also list the editors' favorites (similar to Allure), and the favorites of experts that they polled. Yes, I do want to know what shampoo hairdressers list as their favorite!

  1. i love those articles as well!! they always get me :)

  2. It's always so interesting to me that Great Lash always wins these things, but I don't know ANYONE who likes it... in particular, it's way too wet and doesn't build volume at all. Let's have all those people try MFUE Smoky Lash and I bet they change their answer.

  3. I think it's really interesting to see how inexpensive most of the "Reader Picks" are. I use a lot of the products listed and agree for the most part with the list.


I love comments! Please ask away, provide info on how you liked something, etc. Note that spam, comments with random links (which I count as spam), anything not in english (again, spam) and comments that are completely unrelated to anything will all be deleted.
