This September, we're celebrating the most iconic beauty products across the industry and letting you decide your favourites. Wrapping up the summer and stepping into the new season in true beauty style, we've shortlisted the must have timeless products and new launches that make us feel and look fantastic. As seen onsite, we have been giving you the chance to vote for the best products across all key categories including skincare, haircare, cosmetics and fragrance.

With the winners announcement just around the corner, here's a recap of the the nominees for the very best in skin and bodycare...


The Blemish Buster

If you suffer from blemish prone skin, it can be a long and frustrating process to find the products that work for you. Reported consistently to show results, our Blemish Buster nominees are all a worthy winner for this award. Formulated with ingredients including salicylic acid and glycolic acid, these skin clearing superstars help to reduce oil production and prevent bacteria build up to keep your complexion clear and glowing.


The Sun Saviour (SPF)

Especially important this time of year and with many of us finally flying out to hotter climates, a good SPF is a must have in your beauty bag. These Sun Saviours are lightweight and nourishing for the skin, working to protect and hydrate without causing breakouts or greasy residue. Nominees include the iconic La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra-Light Invisible Fluid SPF50+ Sun Cream that offers unmatched staying power, as well as the REN Clean Skincare Clean Screen Mineral SPF30, formulated with zinc to prevent unwanted shine.


Best Moisturiser

With so many on the market, we're very much spoilt for choice when it comes to moisturisers. Stay tuned on LOOKFANTASTIC to see who takes top spot in this category out of our short list of hydrating heroes including the bestselling Clinique Moisture Surge 100 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator containing Hyaluronic Acid and Cica to moisturise and smooth, along with the Origins GinZing Ultra Hydrating Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturiser blended with Coffee to wake up your complexion for a brighter finish.


Best Cleanser

Arguably one of the most important steps in any skincare routine, an effective cleanser suited to your skin type is a must! Whether you prefer a balm, a gel or are more of a micellar lover, the nominees for our Best Cleanser award have it all. With products from brands including CeraVe, Espa and Clinique, each of these purifying products are designed to lift away dirt and build up to leave your skin feeling fresh and healthy, making the rest of your routine much more effective.


Best Serum

Designed to give your skin an added boost of hydration and nourishment, it will be a close call between all of these highly-reviewed and industry loved Serums. Including the world famous Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex Serum and some more up and coming icons such as the Pai Skincare Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil, the nominees for the Best Serum offer a range of different ingredients targeted to key concerns including anti-ageing, irritation and brightening.



Best in Tanning

Finding a good false tan can be hard, with some leaving you looking orange, streaky or even irritating you if you have sensitive skin. The top picks for LOOKFANTASTIC's Best in Tanning award are all guaranteed to give you an even all over glow that looks natural and non-streaky. Whether you prefer a mousse, a serum or a body butter, we have the top picks for all textures and to suit all skin tones. One to watch in the category, the Vita Liberata Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish gives an immediate airbrushed, bronzed finish using light-reflecting particles that make your skin look luminous, toned and even.


Best for Body

Last but definitely not least in our bodycare awards, the Best for Body overall. Helping us achieve smooth and soft skin from head to toe that we all strive for, these body icons are formulated to nourish, protect and perfect. The Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub uses Sea Salt and Robusta Coffee beans to gently exfoliate away dry skin and moisturises with Sweet Almond Oil to leave you feeling pampered and your skin looking perfected. Offering a delicious tropical scent of Salted Caramel, Pistachio and Vanilla, the Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream moisturises, tones and smooths the skin to leave you feeling bikini ready this summer.
