Australia's best beauty buys 2011
I know I’ve probably mentioned this about a million times before, but I love hearing about other people’s favourite products. Maybe it’s because I like to see how people’s choices differ from mine, or enjoy hearing about why someone can’t live without a certain something-or-other - or maybe it’s just because I’m slightly obsessed beauty and so anything on the topic is of interest to me.
Whatever the reason, lists of ‘best’ or ‘favourite’ are always guaranteed to grab my attention. Which is why, when the Product of the Year Awards – Australia’s largest independent consumer survey of new products in the grocery sector – were held last week, I couldn’t wait to find out which beauty products made the grade. And I’m willing to bet that you’re pretty keen to find out too!
The awards, which see 5,000 household shoppers and a panel of industry experts decide on which brands (across 21 categories) receive the coveted title, not only bring a huge amount of prestige to a product, but they’ve also been known to increase the sales of the winning products by up to 100 percent. So as you can imagine it’s a pretty tough competition!
So without further ado, here are the winners of the categories I care most about – beauty of course!

Best Dental product: Macleans Advanced Freshmint Toothpaste
Best Hair Care products: L’Oreal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo and Conditioner
