2017 Readers’ Choice Awards: Nominate Your Favorites Now!

It’s that time of the year again! It’s time to nominate your favorite products and brands from 2016 as well as your all-time favorite formulas. We have tried to make it easier for readers as well as on our end when it comes to compiling nominees. You can start typing your favorite brand or product, and it will suggest what you’re looking for using our product database, but as always, you can write-in your favorites as well. All of the nominations will be compiled and the top 10-15 (depending on how many ties there are) will make the voting ballot. You do not have to nominate for every category; fill in as many categories as you wish to participate in.

  • Nominations: December 20th, 2016 through January 3rd, 2017 10AM PST.
  • Voting: January 6th, 2017 through January 12th, 2017 10AM PST.
  • Results: January 17th, 2017

Nominations are now closed.
