EDITORS' LETTER: REVEALING THE 2019 BEAUTY BIBLE AWARDS!
Want to know about the beauty products that really, really work? You’ve come to the right place. We are proud to unveil the results of the 2019 Beauty Bible Awards across 100 categories of product (including, for the first time on-line, Haircare and Suncare winners).
We were told recently by an industry insider that ours are ‘the only Awards that really count.’ There are indeed many different Awards out there – but ours are the only ones that put real products through their paces with real women in real-time, each product trialled over anything up to four months (for treatment products such as cellulite and ‘miracle’ creams). And wherever we can, we highlight the Best Natural products and the best affordable product in that category, which we call a ‘Beauty Steal’.
As ever, we had amazingly consistent results from our wonderful testers – and there have been over 30,000 of them, since we started back in 1996, making this the biggest independent trial of beauty products ever carried out in the world.
Every product review features detailed feedback from these real women – and we know you’ll be as fascinated to read their comments as we are.
So if you're looking for truly independent beauty wisdom, we hope you'll bookmark this site. Because if you’re looking for pretty much ANY kind of product, we really believe this is the best place to start - click here.
With love, as ever,
TIP OF THE DAY
Our friend Annee de Mamiel wants you to buy some red stationery dots. Then, she says, ‘Put a red dot on your wallet, desk, computer, screen – anywhere you’re likely to see it often. Every time you see that red dot, stop what you are doing and take a deep, calming breath. See it as a moment to be still.’
To get next week off to the best possible start, spend the last 10 minutes of each Friday afternoon planning the next week. In a perfect world, don’t just focus on work but schedule in time for relationships and just for yourself. Those tend to get squeezed when we’re busy.
There are so many ways to fragrance your home beyond lighting scented candles, which can give off sooty particles (much as we love them…) Spray fragrance into the air and onto bedsheets and curtains (and even cushions). Lightly spray napkins with a fresh Cologne, and seek out scented blooms when you’re buying flowers.
Depilatories are great for bumpy areas like under arms, the upper lip and bikini lines because they can be gentler on skin than waxing or shaving. But always remove hair at least 24 hours before sun, chlorine and salt water exposure and avoid alpha-hydroxy acid products on skin you’ve removed the hair from, to prevent inflammation.
To lengthen and lift lashes, try the ‘Push and Pull’ trick from Pat McGrath: ‘Swipe the wand from the base of the lash, zigzagging the formula back and forth through the lashes.’
