Audra: For the first time ever, the Family Circle of Excellence Awards were featured in the magazine’s April 17th issue. The awards go to food, beauty, and household products that wow the magazine editors so much. They then sent the products real moms to test. So that means the awards are editor recommended and mom approved. Regina Ragone, Family Circle’s food director is here. And Linda Moran Evans, the magazine’s fashion and beauty director. They got some of the results of the survey that you guys took. So you tested all these stuff out, this is a huge undertaking. Regina: Right, and we're so happy that readers really like a lot of the stuff that we like. So one of the first things I'm going to show you is one of our test kitchen’s favorites, this pie crust. They're ready made, you never have to make a pie crust again. And they look fantastic. They're about $3, so easy and our readers said they would never make a pie crust again. Love them. And we've been using these a while. They're not new products, but we've love them and our readers love them now too. Audra: Okay. Regina: This tea sandwich, Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches. Again, so many people at the studio said they love these. They're about $5.50 but you get 6 sandwiches. There are 140 calories in there. Nice portion controlled ice cream sandwiches. Love them, readers love them now too. Audra: Okay. I can see why you guys like them in the office too. And last but not least? Regina: And these are Sandwich Thins and they are 100 calories. They're great for hamburgers. They're whole grain, pizzas. Again, readers thought they were great for kids for sandwiches. Audra: Okay, so now we've covered the food section here. Linda you also took care of beauty products. Linda: Right. Yes. The Garnier nutritioning skin renew anti pop eye roller, our readers absolutely fell in love with.

And this Olay regenerates 14 day skin intervention, it really is an intervention for your skin. First week you use one group and the second week you use the second. The first week you kind of rubs up your cellular system and the second week, it builds in little wrinkles. Audra: Oh my God. Linda: So they love how this work. Audra: Okay, last but not least, we have the cleaning products over here. So what made this such a high priority for you guys and for the readers? Regina: Well a lot of them do more than one thing. So for example, those surface cleaners by Method. They smell great, they're grape fruit. But you can clean all surfaces in the house. And they're so easy to use. Audra: Okay, not just one area.
