Best Beauty Launches in the 2016 Product of the Year Canada Awards


With the nonstop pace of product launches today, modern consumers can be overwhelmed by choice—and for beauty experts, recommending items sure to please them can be equally challenging. So which new launches impress shoppers the most with their inventiveness? That’s the question the Product of the Year Awards aims to answer. The annual program recognizes the best new-to-market launches based on innovation in design, function and/or packaging, spanning a wide range of product categories.
