Here it is! The last category of the 2013 StyleBistro Awards: Best New Body Product. Get the scoop on our five stellar nominees, below, and vote for your favorite in our readers' choice poll at the bottom of the page.
Polls close at 8 a.m. on Monday, August 26th. Be sure to check back in later that day when we announce the winners! But until then... here are the products we've been pampering ourselves with over the past year.
Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer ($8.69 at target.com): Okay, so Jergens Natural Glow isn't exactly a newbie to the self-tanner scene. It's been a fan-favorite for years. But new for 2013, the masterminds behind the lotion's easy-to-build, streak-free color made some changes—that "fake tan" smell? It's gone. Now THAT warrants an award, right?
St. Ives Revitalizing Pear & Soy Body Wash ($3.99 at drugstores): I don't know about you, but "revitalizing" is definitely something I need out of a bath product—especially for pre-sunrise, pre-morning-Starbucks-run showers. Well, the delicious, juicy scent of this hypoallergenic gel delivers just what it promises. Plus, it's infused with natural moisturizers, so there's no dry, soapy feeling afterwards. So many wins.
Coola Sport SPF 30 Unscented Sunscreen Spray ($32 at coolasuncare.com): Coola is hands-down one of our favorite go-to organic brands out there. So when they released this sprayable, ultra-nourishing 100 percent unscented (!) sunscreen, we made sure our beach bags we're stocked and good to go for the summer. As far as organic ingredients go, this one's packed with cucumber, algae, and strawberry extracts to keep moisture-thirsty skin quenched.
c. Booth Honey Almond Firming Body Lotion ($5.99 at Ulta.com): As a beauty editor, I have hundreds of products going in and out of my office every single day. So if there's something that stays at my desk for more than month, you know it's something special. Case in point: this sweet-as-can-be yummy-smelling—like cotton candy!—lotion. I personally use it on my hands, because again, it's mouthwateringly delicious, but it's firming complexes are also great for, ahem, "problem areas."
Moroccanoil Dry Body Oil ($38 at moroccanoil.com): The softness! The scent! Whether it's hair or body products, we truly can't get enough of Moroccanoil. And apparently, the same goes for you guys: Moroccanoil's Body Souffle was the Reader's Choice winner last year! We're pretty positive you'll love this year's contender just as much. Formulated with argan, olive, and avocado oil, this non-greasy spray immediately absorbs into your skin, leaving it soft, silky and smooth all day long.
