All the winners were presented with a Lalique CEW(UK) winners’ statuette and will also be able to carry the prestigious “Beauty Insiders” winner’s seal on their products. Also, Boots UK will be showcasing selected finalists and winning products online, highlighted with the CEW(UK) Award finalists and winners seals.
