As 2017 comes to a close, we take stock of the year that was with regards to beauty, skincare, and hair care. We saw the launch of many newcomers who quickly garnered a large fan following. We also saw stellar performances by the who’s who in the industry with their innovative products and ranges, which were leagues apart from the predecessors. We decided to crown the best among them in different categories, and here are the winners as voted by our beauty editors and top customer picks.
Best All Rounder
The winner of this award stole many hearts with all the ‘goodness’ that it came packed with. It acknowledged the need for different ingredients for different skin types and came up with multiple ranges that catered to the same. The all-rounder, most importantly, stood out with its formulae that were 100% vegan and totally free of parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, SLS, DEA, and PABA. The winner isn’t a product, but a brand that’s all about doing good and being good.
So, here’s our best all-rounder – Plum!
The winner of this category beat the competition with its ability to deliver as promised. To the surprise of many, an ingredient walks away with this prize in 2017. It finds use in a wide range of products such as face washes, masks, shampoos, conditioners, and even toothpaste! From removing blackheads to cleaning up residue and protecting from germs, it’s able to do it all!
So, here’s a big round of applause for the winner – Charcoal!
Multitasking is the norm in today’s world. So, wouldn’t it be great if you could buy one product that multitasks like you? This clever innovation is a must-have in the vanity bag of every woman who loves an explosion of colour in her daily makeup routine. A mousse-textured formula that sets into a powdery matte finish, this two in one invention adds colour to lips and cheeks as well.
And, the award goes to – Lakmé 9 To 5 Mousse Lip & Cheek Color Range!
Best Quick Fix Solution
Some products stand out from the crowd with their ability to fix problems in a jiffy. The winner of this category is one such formula that fixes messy hair days with just few sprays. It not only cleans up dull and greasy hair but also lends it a soothing fragrance with some bounce!
Welcome the winner of the best quick-fix solution – Batiste Dry Shampoo!
Fresh Face of The Year
New entrants steal the show many a time. They deserve a special mention for being able to garner the attention and praise in an often-crowded space that’s dominated by the biggies. The winner this year is a ‘trendy’ nail enamel that became all the rave in the festive season.
And here’s presenting the crown to – Health & Glow Trend Nail Enamel Range
It’s never easy being the king in an arena that’s dominated by jack of all trades. The ‘specialist’ is a brand that’s well known and recognised for its offering for sensitive skin. It caters to the need for a diverse range of skin care products crafted for the same.
Put your hands together for the winner – Eau Thermale Avene!
Being able to gather a fan following is no mean task. The trendsetter this year is neither a product nor a brand, but a regimen followed by the ladies of a country. The routine was quickly adopted by beauty bloggers, and the who’s who of the industry. From double cleansing to serums and essences, this winner bagged the prize with recipes unheard of by many.
So, here’s the one that topped them all – Korean Skin Care And Beauty Regime!
Congratulations to all our winners! We hope our readers love them too!
