We love beauty awards here at Escentual. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better insight into what’s causing a stir in the industry along with what products are being loved by beauty fans – beauty awards always make for fascinating reading. We were so impressed with the number of Escentual-stocked nominees at this year’s PureBeauty awards that we thought we’d thought we’d shed a little more spotlight on them.
This first installation is all of the fantastic skincare and beauty releases that have made an impact this year…
Best Mascara Launch
Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Waterproof, £19.03
A patented brush with explosive talent! An ultra-precision ‘orb’ brush that reaches even the smallest of lashes, this new waterproof formulation contains less of the wax that can make mascaras flaky when dry, and more fluid polymers to sculpt lashes from root to tip.
Best Foundation Launch
HissyFit Saving Face, £18.80
Don’t compromise – get adequate sun protection and long-lasting, creamy foundation coverage all from one very clever product. Containing a blend of pure mineral powders, a sunscreen of 50+ and anti-aging and antioxidant ingredients, Saving Face is a one-stop shop for protecting, renewing and perfecting your skin.
Premium Anti-Aging Launch
Clarins Multi-Active Day Early Wrinkle Correction Cream, £28.86
The best-selling Multi-Active range for those of 30+ has been given an innovative new sibling with sophisticated age control technology. Correction and prevention are the key aims of this luxe cream, which is chock full of potent, anti-oxidant plant ingredients to stimulate, protect and hydrate. Radiant, fresh and younger-looking skin is just a pot away!
Best Male Grooming Launch
Lab Series Skincare for Men Max LS Age-Less Face Cream, £45
Reclaims younger, more vital looking skin. Stimulating and rejuvenating proteins keep skin looking firm, smoother and tightened, whilst plant and wood extracts promote improved youthfulness. An innovative formula that reduces the appearance of photo-aging and skin imperfections.
Best Body Care Launch
La Roche-Posay Lipikar Baume, £12.72
An extremely rich cream for very dry and irritated skin. This balm offers an intensive, 24-hour anti-scratching formulation with high concentrations of 20% Shea butter and 4% niacinamide to heighten skin’s defences against irritations for babies, childrens and adults.
Best new Bath and Shower Product
Tisserand De-Stress Bath Oil, £7.95
A n aroma-therapeutic, hand blended recipe of organic lavender, marjoram and mandarin oils that help to restore harmony, calmness and wellbeing. A retreat from everyday stresses, this restful formulation helps you to achieve a total wind-down whilst comforting the skin and hydrating it beautifully.
Best Artificial Tanning Launch
St Tropez Wash Off Body Lotion, £11.28
Get an instant, natural-looking and DHA-free tan that washes off in the shower. Non-transferable and quick drying, this initially sheer colour can be easily layered to your desired hue. A fantastic quick fix for an instant colour boost!
Special Innovation Award
St Tropez Tan Detox, £23.50
A fantastic innovation that prepares skin for self-tanning. The Tan Detox bath oil removes a build up of old self-tan applications, bringing the skin back to its natural tone whilst softening, smoothing and hydrating it for a perfectly natural colour. Also comes with an exfoliating cloth to effectively and gently remove any unwanted self-tan build-up.
