Yesterday saw the CEW(UK) beauty awards – an industry insider event where beauty experts, editors and buyers vote for their favourite beauty products. Anyway, swanky lunch at the Park Lane Hotel, glamour unlimited and mercifully brief speeches from the award winners. A couple of the presenters of the awards had a tricky time announcing the winners – take L’Oreal Paris Solar Expertise Active Anti-Wrinkle & Brown Spot Matte Fluid Protection SPF50. Try saying that after a bit of corporate hospitality. Suggest you don’t make this your very favourite skincare product because just asking for it seems an impossibly tall order.
