The hunt for the best beauty products can be an arduous one. It often involves multiple trials and errors before we can find a product that truly works for us.
Eleanor Roosevelt has said this: Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.
While we’re pretty sure her context is very different, there’s still a lot of wisdom in it as far as our beauty journey is concerned! What we mean is that you don’t have to try all the products yourself to find out which are the best!
Daily Vanity Beauty Awards 2020 helps you suss out the best beauty products in the market
As the #1 beauty media in Singapore, Daily Vanity has often been asked by our readers (that’s you!) for product recommendations.
While we certainly have the privilege of constantly trying out the best and newest products in the market, and have shared what we know are great, we don’t profess to have tried out enough of them to be absolutely sure which ones are the crème de la crème.
This is why, for the third year running, we held the Daily Vanity Beauty Awards, so that we can help you make the best purchase decisions possible.
Our panel of judges had spent almost three months to tirelessly try and compare more than 800 products across the Skincare, Makeup, Hair Care, and Body Care categories. There are objective guidelines to help with the comparison, and we ensured that the judges have different skin concerns and lifestyle, across different ages and genders, so that we can give a fairer judgement. On top of that, our commitment to helping our readers make the best purchase decisions guides our approach to short-listing these award-winning products.
We also tapped into the knowledge and experience of our readers, who are beauty enthusiasts. More than 1,600 of you voted for your favourite products in your to-buy-and-buy-again list, making a clear indication which products have worked well for you.
These relentless efforts have helped us decide on the winners of the Daily Vanity Beauty Awards 2020.
