Glow's Best in Beauty Awards 2007

One of the most popular places to get "drugstore" cosmetics in Canada is Shoppers Drug Mart (SDM). SDM puts out a beauty magazine called Glow and recently Glow held its Annual Readers' Choice Beauty Survey to see what the most popular products were. Over 9,000 votes were cast - and here are the winners. Along with the readers' favourites are the "must-haves" in innovation, as chosen by the Glow editors.

The best thing about this list is that most of these products are drugstore brands, which means the prices are much more affordable than other "Best of..." lists. Time to go shopping!

I've heard (or read - i can't remember) that Pantene is 1 of the best "drugstore/cheap" shampoos & conditioners you can pick up.

I love Blistex Lip Medex! I used to use it religiously & it worked great to relieve my chapped lips! Such a great product!
