Stylist's Skincare Awards: 22 award-winning products that will give you the greatest skin of your life

This week we celebrated the 5th annual Stylist skincare awards, which honoured the greatest skincare products on the market.

From body scrubs to eye creams, our 9 judges - from House of Fraser's director of beauty, Ruth Newman to celebrity facialist Su-Man - joined Stylist's associate editor (beauty) Joanna McGarry in carefully choosing the winning formulas. 

Here, Joanna talks us through the selection process. And for the full list of winners take a look through our gallery though be warned, you may not be able to resist a couple of purchases! 

Joanna McGarry

“You know that moment, first thing in the morning, after you’ve scrubbed and kneaded your skin, but before a stitch of make-up hits it? Those fleeting seconds are when my skin looks its happiest – cheeks like a beach ball and smooth to the touch. It’s the moment all my skincare efforts (and there are MANY) are realised.

But still, I want more. I’m forever in pursuit of the next skincare great, not only to power my morning skin but in the hope of powering yours. Because, let’s face it: wading through today’s vast sea of skincare options can feel a tad overwhelming.

It’s this very sentiment that fuels the Stylist Skincare Awards – the only annual beauty awards dedicated entirely to skin – we believe getting your skin right is the springboard from which all other acts of beauty are propelled. 

And, as we value your input just as much as that of the industry’s leading skincare experts once again we’ve bound your votes with theirs to award 22 new winning formulas (selected from around 1,000 entries), which you’ll find in the gallery below.

I believe in every one of them. And you do, too. We have 53,540 of your votes to prove it. Let me know what you think on Twitter, using #stylistskincare2014.

From the best moisturisers to self-tans, you can click the gallery below to discover which lotions and potions we deemed worthy of winning.
