Beauty products can connect us, ground us, and make us look amazing, but it can involve numerous trials and errors to find ones that actually work for us. However, that doesn’t mean you have to test all the products out there to determine the best of the best.

We’re here to lead you to the true standouts with the Daily Vanity Beauty Awards.

Daily Vanity Beauty Awards 2021: We help you find the best beauty products on the market

As the #1 beauty media in Singapore, Daily Vanity has often been asked by our readers for product recommendations and our thoughts on the latest launches. While we certainly have the privilege of trying out the newest products in the market, we gotta admit we’ve yet to try out enough of them to be absolutely sure of their top ranks.

This is why we’re holding the Daily Vanity Beauty Awards for the fourth year, so you can click that “add to cart” button with confidence.

Our panel of judges spent a month tirelessly trying and comparing more than 500 products, spanning across skincare, makeup, hair care, and body care. 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 provide a fairer judgement.


While we may consider ourselves the beauty experts, you – our readers – are no novices. We know you’re serious about your routines, which is why we’ve also tapped into your knowledge and experience. More than 1,200 of you voted for your favourite products, making a clear indication of which products have worked well for you.

These relentless efforts have helped us decide on the winners of the Daily Vanity Beauty Awards 2021.

The best beauty products to try in 2021

If you haven’t clicked into the site that unveils all the winners, here’s a sneak preview of some of them across a few categories:

Suu Balm Cooling Itch Relief Facial Moisturiser

Won: Best Itchy, Eczema-prone Skin Moisturiser (Editor’s & Readers’ Choice)

Dvba Listing Suu Balm Moisturiser

A unique, rapid itch-relieving moisturiser, the Suu Balm Cooling Itch Relief Facial Moisturiser is specially formulated to soothe sensitive or eczema-prone skin. It provides the same alleviating effects as the original Suu Balm cream, but this one won’t sting your eyes.

The moisturiser contains a combination of skin-identical ceramides, northern truffle, and safflower extracts to repair your skin barrier and moisturise it for hours on end. Light and non-greasy, the moisturiser is perfect for our hot, humid climate, which is why it won the hearts of our readers and our editor!

Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum

Won: Best Hydrating Serum (Readers’ Choice)

Dvba Listing Fresh Rose Serum

It’s all in the name. Fresh’s Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum is a silky bi-phase serum that nourishes like a facial oil, yet it has a water-light texture that absorbs effortlessly into the skin.

With a few shakes, the two phases transform into a nourishing serum, balancing water and oil to give thirsty skin just what it needs. With rosewater, damask rose, and a lightweight blend of skin-friendly oils, it deeply hydrates the skin for 24 hours without leaving a greasy finish. Our readers saw dewy, soft, and plump skin, which explains why it took the top spot for Best Hydrating Serum.

Milani Cosmetics Baked Highlighter

Won: Best Highlighter (Expert’s Choice & Readers’ Choice)

Dvba Listing Milano Cosmetics Highlighter

Inspired by Italian terracotta tiles, Milani Cosmetics’ Baked Highlighters are perfect for taking your glow game to the next level. With intense pigments, the highlighter is made with multi-tonal, micro-fine luminescent powders for effortless and seamless application.

The velvety-soft formula is buildable too, so you can take your look from a natural glow to a beaming gleam with the swipe of a brush. It’s no surprise that this highlighter won our experts and readers over.

SOMARCA Color Shampoo

Won: Best Shampoo/Conditioner for Chemically-Treated Hair (Editor’s & Readers’ Choice)

Dvba Listing Somarca Shampoo

Formulated by Hoyu Professional from Japan, SOMARCA’s Color Shampoo prolongs your salon-coloured hair with ease. It comes in different shades that tailor to your hair colour, keeping it healthy and conditioned between trips to the salon.

It’s even scented with floral notes of rose and magnolia as well as hints of fruits and musk to leave your hair looking and smelling amazing after every wash.

Kinohimitsu Collagen Diamond

Won: Best Collagen Supplement (Readers’ Choice)

You’ve probably seen this popular collagen supplement stocked on the shelves of Watsons or Guardian, and it’s easy to see why our readers loved it so much. Kinohimitsu’s Collagen Diamond is a sugar-free formula that contains 5,300mg of marine collagen peptides per pop, and it’s one of the most popular collagen drinks on the market.

Besides providing that much-needed skin boost, it’s also rich in antioxidants derived from perilla seed extract. This works synergistically with the marine collagen peptides to help reduce cell inflammation and skin ageing while helping your skin repair itself.
