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
If you like to use a make-up sponge, experiment with damping it slightly (not wet, just damp). It will glide on much more smoothly…
For an eye-widening effect, try applying your mascara in the traditional way, from roots to tips, then take the tip of the wand and stroke it over the lashes at the outer corners. It creates a real ‘false lash’ effect.
Trust us: tanning waters are going to be the next big thing for summer – they’re similar to micellar waters, but with tanning agents. But how to apply? The secret for the most natural-looking finish is to blend with an applicator mitt or beauty blender body sponge, then dry with a hairdryer on cool.
The best time of day for a facial is as late in the day as your salon can manage (preferably early evening, actually). If for any reason you have a negative reaction, skin can recover before being exposed to the sun, and it gives any redness (which should only be minimal, by the way) time to calm.
Whenever you wash your make-up brushes (which should be once a week, NB!), reshape them with your hands, then place them on the counter so that the bristles hang over the edge. (Laying brushes on a flat surface won’t allow air to circulate through them – and on natural brushes, that can cause mildew.)
