Now, without further ado, we present the winners of FASHION‘s 20th annual #BeautyForAll Awards.
Can’t get to the salon? These 20 picks, for every hair type and need, should do the trick. These are the shampoos and conditioners, styling products and tools that seriously impressed our judges.
For the first time ever, skincare sales surpassed makeup sales in Canada last year, thanks to growing interest in the category that sky-rocketed during the pandemic. With that in mind, check out the best moisturizers, cleansers, serums (and so, so much more) on the market.
From SPF to self-tanner, shaving products to hand cream (and everything in between), these are this year’s standout body care products—just in time for summer.
It’s no secret that the cosmetics industry is booming like never before. New makeup launches are a seemingly daily occurrence, which can make shopping for a new holy grail mascara, eyeliner or lipstick an overwhelming task. Luckily, our judges were up to the challenge and selected the ones you should stock up on.
Fragrance and Clean
Fragrances are some of the most subjective and personal beauty products on the market, but these winning picks impressed all of our judges. Plus, meet the one product that truly wowed our panelists, thanks to its focus on clean innovation.
