What was the best prize you've ever won? A few months ago, I was one of 25 winners of the Star magazine beauty awards. The readers had voted on the best products, and afterwards Star had a drawing to give away the winning products. I had almost forgot about entering when I got this huge box delivered. I was pulling out full-size products for 20 minutes - almost $1000 altogether. The best stuff - a $95 tube of Hylexin eye cream, an $80 hair straightener, a $95 Freeze 24/7 facial exfoliator, a $40 bottle of Live by J Lo, and a $40 Crest Whitestrips kit. When I won, my newborn daughter was about 6 months old, and I'd felt less than pampered for a long while. This prize couldn't have come at a better time.
