2015 Product of the Year Winners + Giveaway ($250 value!) *Closed*

Product of the Year 2015

I received some of the products mentioned below to facilitate this post.

Did you know that nearly 50,000 new packaged goods products are introduced each year? That is a whole lot of research, execution and innovation in just 365 days! But of those products, some are heroes, while others are dubbed zeros. Let’s focus on the heroes of 2015 – the 2015 Products of the Year.

Product of the Year, the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation, announced its 2015 winners last week and I had the chance to check all 30 “heroes” out for myself. So how does a product get such a prestigious award? Over 40,000 consumers are surveyed by research partner TNS, a global leader in consumer research, so the winning products are voted on by consumers just like you and me.

Meet the 2015 Product of the Year Winners!

My friend and I tested these masks out during last week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy, and while we may have looked like glazed donuts at the time, our skin felt refreshed and hydrated for 24 hours following the removal of our masks.

Testing face mask
