Best Base Coat / Top Coat
Editors' Pick Winner: Essie Gel Setter Top Coat
Why: This top coat gives you a thick, incredibly glossy finish reminiscent of a gel manicure. It also helps a manicure last a few extra days, yet it's as easy to remove as regular polish.

Honorable Mention: Formula X The Fix Nail Treatment

Readers' Choice Winner: Sally Hansen Dries Instantly 30 Second Top Coat
Why: "This is my final coat every time I paint my nails. I apply one coat, wait 30 seconds, and my nails are dry. It lives up to its name."

Honorable Mention: Essie Good to Go Top Coat

Best Body Moisturizer
Editors' Pick Winner: Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
Why: Don't let the name fool you: This mica-infused cream isn't just for your bum. Slather it on from the neck down for soft, smooth, glowing skin that smells incredible. The sweet, nutty, beach-y scent will elicit compliments all day long.

Honorable Mention: Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Coconut Oil Body Lotion

Readers' Choice Winner: Bath & Body Works Triple Moisture Body Cream
Why: "I love this because the formula is thick, making the scent last longer on my skin. Even 12 hours later, my skin is soft -- no need for reapplication."

Honorable Mention: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion

Best Body Wash
Editors' Pick Winner: Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent Body Wash
Why: This body wash is so hydrating, you can skip lotion completely. It lathers to a rich cream -- you can even use it for shaving -- and leaves behind just a hint of pretty fragrance (We prefer the coconut scent). At this price, it's almost too good to be real.

Honorable Mention: Victoria's Secret Ultrarich Cream Wash

Readers' Choice Winner: Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash with NutriumMoisture
Why: "My dermatologist told me to try this, and I am so glad I listened. It moisturizes my skin so well. I use this every day, and it leaves my very dry skin moisturized and beautiful."

Honorable Mention: Aveeno Stress Relief Body Wash

Best Deodorant
Editors' Pick Winner: Secret Outlast Xtend Invisible Solid Deodorant
Why: This deodorant fights smelliness and sweat all day -- even during tough workouts. The scent is barely there but pretty, and refreshes itself throughout the day.

Honorable Mention: Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant Sport Luxe

Readers' Choice Winner: Dove Advanced Care Go Fresh Cool Essentials Antiperspirant Deodorant
Why: "My absolute favorite. No white residue and it works extremely well. The scent isn't too strong, so it won't clash with anything else you put on in terms of fragrance."

Honorable Mention: Secret Clinical Strength Smooth Solid Deodorant

Best Fragrance
Editors' Pick Winner: Maison Martin Margiela Replica Lipstick On Eau de Toilette
Why: This fragrance is feminine and unique -- it actually smells like lipstick in the most glamorous and beautiful way. It's hard to put a finger on the scent, which is powdery and floral, but that's what makes this perfume so special.

Honorable Mention: Tocca Isabel Eau de Parfum

Readers' Choice Winner: Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Spray
Why: "I love Coco Mademoiselle because it makes me feel feminine but powerful at the same time. It lasts up to six hours and has the most mesmerizing yet delicate smell."

Honorable Mention: Philosophy Pure Grace Spray Fragrance
