Stylist is serious about skincare

The first free, premium weekly magazine for women in the UK, Stylist has rapidly become a media phenomenon since its launch in October 2009.

The magazine has set a new standard of positive, intelligent, thoughtful journalism and our editorial team has been awarded for its efforts; this year alone the Stylist beauty team were nominated for 15 awards in total, walking away with Best Weekly Journalist, Journalist Of The Year and Highly Commended Rising Star at the Johnson & Johnson awards, Highly Commended New Specialist Journalist Of The Year at the PTC New Talent awards and the Rodial Beauty Award for Best Shortlead Beauty Pages – a feat unparalleled by any other beauty team.

Stylist’s beauty pages have quickly become an authority in a competitive and broad editorial landscape, providing thought-provoking, original stories: from tasking ourselves to revolutionise the way we define our skin types, through to our groundbreaking investigation into the genuine efficacy of skincare treatments. Our commitment to boundary-pushing, cutting edge skincare is second to none, and is an area we’re wholly passionate about as a team.

The Stylist Skincare Awards have fast become a trusted and respected benchmark of quality in the industry – and a trusted, well-loved guide for our loyal ABC1 readership.

The winning night treatments will need to wow the judges by offering a hit of overnight, intensive nourishment.

From SPF to texture and fragrance, the winners of these categories will show their protection is unbeatable.

BEST SELF-TAN

The formulas that give an even, realistic colour and provide ease of application will be contenders for this category.

NEW AWARD!

BEST FACIAL TREATMENT

This new category celebrates life-changing facials that not only remedy any skincare woes, but provide an all-round intensive skincare experience. They must have been developed in the last two years.

The criteria for entry

  • The luxury categories are eligible to products priced £20 and over
  • All other categories are eligible to products priced £19.99 and under
  • All products must have been launched since 1 May 2011 and be on sale in the UK now

Stylist's special awards criteria for entry

The winners of these categories are selected by the expert judges from all of the other entries, and therefore do not need to be entered separately.

LAUNCH OF THE YEAR

LUXURY LAUNCH OF THE YEAR

The winners of this category will be the most innovative and exciting skincare products to launch in the last 12 months.

BEST CLASSIC BUY

The winner of this category will be the ultimate skincare essential, in which our judges trust time and again. It can either be luxury or non-luxury but unlike the other categories, will have launched longer than two years ago.
