Each year, members of Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW), the beauty industry’s leading professional organization, select the creme de la creme of beauty to win the coveted CEW seal of approval. This year, CEW awarded 36 products across 3o categories with a CEW Beauty Award at the organization’s annual luncheon.

For this week’s Gorgeous Giveaway, we’re giving away one goody bag (an approximate value of $300+) filled with roughly 20 products, which were  all finalists for a CEW Beauty Award. 2013 was a watershed year for the awards, which included skincare tools and lip treatment products for the first time. This year’s winning skincare tool was NuFACE Trinity Skin Boosting System with Microcurrent and Red LED and the winning lip treatment product was Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy.


Our Gorgeous Giveaway bag, filled with sun, body, makeup, hair, skincare and fragrance items, will have you drooling. Here is an example of what’s included in this once-a-year beauty giveaway:

Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Moisturizer ($20): An oil-control moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF 30+.

Glamglow Super Clearing Mud Mask Treatment ($69): This Beauty Award winner in the acne category is actually a mud mask you can wash off.

Birchbox CEW Edition ($10): The ladies at Birchbox curated a special box just for CEW.

Estee Lauder CP+R Perfectionist Wrinkle Lifting Serum ($65): This serum corrector does just about everything including dramatically lifting the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Aveda Stress Fix Body Lotion ($11): A stress fix in the form of a lotion with a gorgeous helping of lavender essences.

Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips ($22): We don’t know of a single girl who cannot benefit from these whitening strips.

To Enter: What is you desert island beauty product? The one you can’t bear to live without.

    Missha BB Cream. It’s my new go to makeup product and it has an SPF of 42 to protect my pale skin.

  2. carolena Says:

    Everyone has said sunscreen and lip balm, but I would add eye drops because my eyes are sure to feel dry and scratchy with all the sun and wind.

  3. davisesq212 Says:

    Austrailan Scent has a Balm of Gilead that I use in Lavender scent. It is a great moisturizer and makes my hair smooth and hydrated. It has so many purposes and is ALL NATURAL and smells amazing.

    Coconut oil is a fantastic multitasker – it can be used as lotion, lip balm, eye makeup remover, shaving oil, hair softener and it has the natural fragrance of a desert island, so it can be a good fragrance. I use it to remove makeup and instantly hydrate and calm my sensitive, acne-prone skin. This is my ultimate all-in-one skincare product. If I want to splurge I buy RMS Raw Coconut Cream version instead of generic grocery store coconut oil.

  16. lndoucette Says:

    Definitely would have to say the Neutrogena Healthy Defense moisturizer with 50 SPF! Gotta have some serious sun protection with fair skin.

  51. joannaonthelake Says:

    Oh dear, I am a gal who uses half a dozen beauty products on myself everyday, so being stranded on a deserted island with only one product would be a true catastrophe! But I love my AVEENO POSITIVELY RADIANT Daily Moisturizer with a Broad Spectrum of SPF 30 so I guess this would be my top pick! I slather it on my face and my entire body to protect my skin from shriveling up like a prune!! Hopefully this product will keep my skin healthy until we are rescued by a luxury cruise liner filled with pampering beauty products to spoil us back to normal!!

  52. ewalsh Says:
