Stylist Skincare Awards 2012


Here’s your chance to see your skincare product recognised by Britain’s biggest premium weekly women’s magazine.

Stylist’s Skincare Awards are now into their third year. We’re celebrating the exciting and ever-evolving world of skincare and making sure that truly excellent products get the recognition they deserve. From the must-have mass sector to high-end prestige, we’ll present our readers with a comprehensive shortlist of the products that have really gone the distance. Stylist is committed to supporting innovation, so all entries must have launched in the past two years. And as we value our readers so much, we’ll once again be inviting them to join a panel of skin experts to share with us the products they put their trust in.

Last year 108,990 readers voted in our Skincare Awards. This year we intend to boost that already impressive figure to an even higher level. From your product entries, the Stylist beauty team will create a shortlist for each category and send these to the judging panel for individual testing. We will then present the nominees online and call our 429, 034 readers to vote.

The winning brands will feature in a dedicated Stylist Skincare Awards issue and have the right to use our stamp of approval in their branding. As part of the celebrations, we shall be inviting you all to join us for a special winners’ breakfast in November.
