Now it is time for the voting process! Beginning October 19, 2016, let us know which products you and your clients cannot live without. Do this by submitting your vote, once a day, until November 30, 2016. With new categories added to the 2017 lineup, this year's Aestheticians' Choice Awards has not left anything out.
