Thank you for making these Awards the success they have become. We will always endeavour to keep them independent, with zero financial tie-ins or brand allegiances because this is exactly why the Beauty Shortlist Awards have become so well trusted and respected by both consumers and beauty buyers. This is vital.

Quite simply, products judged to be the best, most loved by us, which we think you will really love…win! As simple as this (after a very exhaustive 3-6 month testing period which provides us with a priceless insight into overall wellbeing and beauty market trends and a first look at cutting edge formulas and new concepts).

We are big supporters of small brands and start-ups, too, so if you’ve never entered, have a go this year!

“The Beauty Shortlist has been the most wonderful catalyst to abeautifulworld. From the day we launched Fi has offered support, encouragement and insight which has accelerated out growth. The Beauty Shortlist has also been the perfect springboard for the UK launch of many great brands that we represent including Dahliana, The Body Deli and Yarok. The awards have been an honour, and given many unknown brands the reach and gravitas that is so important. The Beauty Shortlist is oracle, mentor, consultant and totally fabulous.”
