    Working with a panel of experts here in the UK (including none other than Ateh Jewel, Sali Hughes and Alice Hart-Davis) and our beauty team across the pond, we have whittled down this year’s launches to find the best products in the world. Rated for their formulas, efficacy, scent and packaging these 13 products are beauty’s crème de la crème.

    On top of the six British winners (whoop), we are ecstatic to reward six international winners for products that wowed 24 beauty experts and editors.

    This year, we are also very excited to reveal our very first Transatlantic Winner. Spotlighted by both our UK and US beauty experts, it epitomises how global the beauty industry is these days.
