CEW Beauty Insider's Choice Awards: Cleanser & Scrubs.

While I have a lot of favorite cleansers & scrubs, it is one category product I never tire of trying. I was thrilled to try some of the best from the CEW Beauty Insider's Choice Awards. These are the finalists in both the mass and prestige categories.

FACIAL SKINCARE: Cleanser & Scrub Mass


  • Avon Products, Inc. - Anew Clinical Advanced Dermabrasion System - One of my favorite new products, you dial up the intensity of exfoliation as your skin gets used to it.The formula contains three key active ingredients – Aluminum Oxide Crystals, Polyethylene Polishing Beads and Advanced Polymers – designed to treat dullness, enlarged pores, discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Detoxifying Facial Cleanser -This is a favorite of my daughters. It is a daily facial cleanser formulated with BURSTING BEADS (that she still gets tickled over) and antioxidants that work to rejuvenate skin. The beads gently massage her skin, creating an invigorating sensation as it lathers and cleans.
  • Neutrogena - Wave Power Cleanser and Deep Clean Foaming Pads - This easy to hold beauty is another product that my daughter swears by (especially since she saw Vanessa Hudgens in the commercial!). This is a battery-operated, water-resistant cleansing device that works better to clean skin. Pre-dosed, single-use, textured pads (that are included) gently sweep away layers of dead skin cells to reveal noticeably smoother and softer skin after just one use. Once you go through your set of pads that come with The Wave, you can pick up refills.
  • Olay - Definity Penetrating Foaming Mousse Cleanser -This is a light but effective, fast-acting foam that expands down to the pores to remove micro-residue for visibly reduced pores after just one use. It penetrates through dirt, oil and make-up to deeply purify skin and even skin tone. It is a gentle aerated formula containing Glucosamine and a micro-polishing complex to protect skin’s moisture and visibly even overall skin tone.
  • Yes To Tomatoes - Trouble Free Face Wash - This Face Wash is made with lycopene, found in organic red fruits and vegetables, to help brighten, refine and purify combination to oily skin. It's also made with 26 rich minerals from the Dead Sea that help detoxify and mineralize the skin naturally.

FACIAL SKINCARE: Cleanser & Scrub Prestige

  • Clinique - Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser - This mild but effective formula removes makeup, dirt and oil, leaving skin comfortable and smooth, never flushed or tight. To immediately soothe irritated skin, this formula includes several ingredients including Sea Whip and Oat Extract.
  • Fresh - Appleseed Brightening Exfoliant - Mechanical and non-mechanical exfoliators sweep away dead skin cells without irritating the skin to promote a glowing, flawless complexion. As pomegranate seeds and bamboo gently sweep away dry, dull skin, leaving a renewed complexion, the citrus fruit acids, non-mechanical exfoliators, help enhance cellular turnover, revitalizing and softening the skin. Appleseed oil nourishes, protects and is rich in essential fatty acids, offering purely radiant skin.
  • Korres Natural Products - Pomegranate Cleansing and Makeup Removing Wipes - Pomegranate Cleansing and Makeup Removing Wipes are formulated to clean and nourish skin with time-tested natural ingredients that instantly clean and remove makeup, leaving skin hydrated and refreshed.

  • shu uemura - Brightening Cleansing Oil - This is Shu's latest breakthrough in his famed skincare cleansing oils that blends the best elements of nature, science and art to brighten the face. This one was made to cleanse and help to fade dark spots and correct dull skin and skin inflammation.
