Another resource for finding the best of the new products - watch for the published results of consumer surveys that have been designed to capture information on the experiences of others who have tried them out in their homes.
This year, I'm excited to announce that several P&G products received the Canadian Living Best New Product Award, based on results of the 2015 BrandSpark consumer survey conducted between November and December 2014. Winners were determined based on consumer appeal and repurchase intent.
Here's the full list of P&G products that won this recognition (I'm including links so you can check them out):

I haven't tried all of these, but I can say I love the CoverGirl and Olay Depuffer Concealer. The applicator is metal and it cools the skin as you apply the concealer, tightening my puffy under-eye area. And being all about the Tide Pods, I'm happy to see that great-smelling Gain is now available in the same format. I love the convenience of pods for the laundry.
Oh! And for the record, Pampers Swaddlers aren't a new product per se, but they are newly available in larger sizes. I wish they had been when Boo was a baby. I loved the softness and fit of the Swaddlers and was disappointed I couldn't get them in size 3 at the time.
