  • This refreshingly affordable skincare line has come a long way since your mother's Oil of Olay days. Now the formulas are packed with the latest high-tech ingredients and the packaging stands up against any luxe label. Olay has won more Allure Best of Beauty awards than any other facial moisturizer brand in the past ten years. The star product: Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream, $24.99, has been clinically proven to lift and firm skin and restore elasticity for a smoother, more youthful appearance. Ol Olay!

  • Women with flat hair try every trick under the sun to get a little extra lift in their locks. If that sounds like you, then it's time to give Pantene Fine Hair Flat To Volume Shampoo, $3.99, a try. It gently banishes volume-crushing build-up and dulling residue to restore shine and body. But if volume isn't your biggest issue, Pantene can still help. It won more Allure Best of Beauty awards in the shampoo and conditioner category over the past ten years than any other hair care brand and has formulas that target every hair dilemma known to womankind.

  • The scientists at Secret are smart cookies: They created the Secret Clinical Strength formula, a 2010 Allure Best of Beauty Award winner, to be used at night when your body is most receptive to forming a strong barrier against sweat. Genius! The deodorant/antiperspirants also contain odor-fighting capsules, skin soothing conditioners, and a variety of long lasting light, fresh scents ($7.99 to $9.99). And we know a chick would never be caught dead with sweat stains on her blouse, so the fact that Secret has won more Allure Best of Beauty awards than any other deo brand is big deal.

  • Here's the average woman's leg shaving routine: Grab a razor, slap on some shaving cream, balance on one leg and use slapdash strokes to shave the other, which usually results in a nick. Yes, we all rush the labor of leg shaving, but you can up your odds of getting silky, smooth results by using the right razor. The Gillette Venus Embrace razor, $9.99 to $14.99, features five curve-hugging blades for a closer shave, a protective moisture strip for a nick-free glide and is the well-deserved winner of Allure's 2010 Best of Beauty. In fact, Gillette Venus has won more awards from Allure readers over the past 10 years than any other razor.
