Whittling down the best beauty products of 2022 has got to be one of the toughest things Daily Vanity has had to do. The past year alone saw a staggering amount of launches, from eyeshadow palettes to advanced sunscreens and multitasking hybrids that shave off minutes from our daily routines.
These beauty products can ground us and make us look amazing as we strut down the streets, but it can involve numerous trials and errors to find ones that actually work for us. That doesn’t mean you have to test all the products out there to get to the crème de la crème, though.
We’re here to lead you to the true standouts with our Daily Vanity Beauty Awards.
Daily Vanity Beauty Awards 2022: We help you find the best beauty products on the market
As the #1 beauty media in Singapore, Daily Vanity certainly has the privilege of trying out the newest products that hit the market. But we gotta admit, we’ve yet to try out enough of them to be absolutely sure of their top echelon.
Our dear readers (that’s you!) also often ask us for product recommendations and our thoughts on the latest beauty drops. This is why we’re holding the Daily Vanity Beauty Awards for the fifth year, so you can click that “add to cart” button with confidence!
We turned to a panel of judges to sound off on the year’s most game-changing mascaras, masks, and many more. Our judges spent two months tirelessly trying and comparing products, spanning skincare, makeup, haircare, and body care.
There are objective guidelines to help with the comparison, and we ensured that the judges have different skin and hair concerns, lifestyles, as well as different ages, so that we can provide a fairer judgement.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost™ Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Won: Readers’ Choice for Best Hydrating Serum
This serum instantly quenches and replenishes dry skin to give it a hydrating boost from within. It uses two sizes of hyaluronic acid, which is a popular humectant that draws moisture from the air to keep your skin hydrated.
Tiny white and blue capsules suspended in the formula house hyaluronic acid, keeping it fresh until you massage it on your skin. Combined with fellow humectant glycerin, it delivers moisture nine layers deep into the epidermis.
Together with 17% hydrating complex that’s lightweight and easily absorbed, they rehydrate your skin and smooth out fine lines, so it plumps and balances the skin in a flash. Not to mention, pro-vitamin B5 and prebiotics in the formula also soothe and strengthen your skin barrier, aiding your skin’s renewal and recovery.
