Meet Marilyn's Mavens, six lovely ladies from across Canada who have been testing a range of Smart Beauty Buys from P&G, and reporting their experiences via blog on Tomorrow on "The Marilyn Denis Show," they'll be the subjects of beauty transformations executed by a team of experts, including Justin German, Pantene Consulting Stylist and co-owner of Shagg Salon; Luis Pacheco, Clairol Consulting Colourist and founder of Hair on the Avenue; celeb stylist Alexis Honce; and top makeup artists from Page One Management.

Over the last few weeks, Char, Franca, Liz, Meredith, Meaghan and Colleen have sampled the following:

3D Crest Whitestrips Advanced Seal
Venus Embrace razors
Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash
Secret Fresh Effects Cucumber Aloe Deodorant/Anti-Perspirant
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream
COVERGIRL & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
Clairol Perfect 10 by Nice'n'Easy
Pantene Nature Fusion Moisture Balance Shampoo and Conditioner

Whose husband actually noticed her smile was whiter? Who tested Secret Fresh Effects by applying it before biking to work? Who fell for Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream, and who decided, nope, not for her yet? Who coloured her hair herself for the first time, and succesfully? You'll find the all-true details of each person's experiences on

I've weighed in on the blog as well, with some of the geekier behind-the-product details, and I'll be joining the mavens as well as Justin and Luis on set.

To see the mavens' transformations on "The Marilyn Denis Show" live, tune in at 10 am on CTV. Or visit later in the day once the episode is posted on the website. See you from the other side of the screen :-)
