About The Beauty Shortlist/Contact

I founded The Beauty Shortlist in the summer of 2009, and really, it’s what the name says. A shortlist of the best beauty brands and products on the market – whether that new beauty find is by a small, Cornish skincare brand or a big name French “laboratoire” range. It could be a new ultra-high performance, cell-renewing, science-based serum, or the simplest, purest of cleansers.

But it’s got to be a product that works, worth spending our money on. Which feels really good to use. Ideally clean, green and glamorous because The Beauty Shortlist naturally veers in an organic/wellbeing direction. Ethics are key – and so is cutting through hype and false promises.

Come and join us on Twitter @BeautyShortlist and if you want to keep up with our latest finds, you can subscribe to our regular updates at the bottom of our Home page.  And pop round and say hi on Facebook.

Here’s to a beautiful year in 2013, in every sense of the word.
