SELF Approved Beauty Awards 2015 Event

Last month I had the pleasure of attending Self Magazines Self Approved event here in NYC. This event showcased the Beauty products that Self Magazines beauty editors for worthy of approval all perfectly categorized by skin needs and what the products specialize in.  There was a few that I already loved and some products that became new lovers! Here are some things that stood out to me during my time at the event. Do you spot any of your beauty approved products?

Be sure to check out Self Magazine's May issue to see what made the list! Maybe you'll see some of your favorites as well...
