Revealed: Grazia's Skincare Awards 2022 Winners


Grazia Skincare Awards 2022

Best Vitamin C: Murad Vita-C Triple Exfoliating Facial
1 of 15

'This chemical and physical exfoliator contains glycolic acid, lactic acid and salicylic acid, to rid skin of dud, dull cells, and reveal a glow that will allow you to forgo make-up altogether. Idefyyounottobe impressed – and inundated with compliments.' - Phoebe McDowell, Grazia's Beauty Director.

Best Cleanser: Shiseido Shikulime Gel-To-Oil Cleanser
2 of 15

'This contains a cocktail of efficacious barrier-loving ingredients, so there are benefits beyond its ability to take off the day. It leaves skin feeling fresh, hydrated and – crucially – with no dryness.' - Dr David Jack, cosmetic doctor and founder of Dr David Jack London skincare.

Best Face Mask: Tata Harper Radiance Mask
3 of 15

'Designed to fortify your barrier without causing aggravation, this vegan glow giver is perfect for those with sensitive skin. There are AHAs to gently exfoliate and probiotics to balance your microbiome, and with a refreshing gel texture, it's a total pleasure to use.' - Dija Ayodele, skin health specialist and author of Black Skin, The Definitive Skincare Guide.

Best Retinol: Medik8 Retinol 3TR Serum
4 of 15

'This comes in varying strengths, the idea being that you can start with 3TR and build up to 6 or even 10. TR (time release technology) means small doses are released over a longer period, maximising effectiveness while minimising irritation. Win-win!' - Kate Kerr, clinical facialist and skin expert.

Best Spot Treatment: Malin + Goetz Salicylic Acid Gel
5 of 15

'With 2% salicylic acid plus lactic acid and niacinamide, this has the ideal ingredients for calming breakout areas, while hydrating and soothing with willow bark extract and glycerine. Best of all, you can wear it under make-up.' - DJ.

Best Fake Tan: St. Tropez Self Tan Tonic Drops
6 of 15

'Free from streaks, smudges and smell (the incriminating kind, anyway), this will make you look like you've been in the Bahamas. With hyaluronic acid and niacinamide, the skincare benefits are impressive too.' - PM.

Best Hand Sanitiser: Nealu2019s Yard Remedies Natural Defence Hand Rub
7 of 15

'Vegan and refillable, this contains over 70% alcohol – killing 99.9% of bacteria – and has a beautiful texture. The smell is gorgeous and skin is left feeling balanced.' - KK.

Best Body Exfoliator: Kate Somerville Exfolikate Resurfacing Body Scrub
8 of 15

'Skin is left buffed, polished and smooth, thanks to lactic and salicylic acid to exfoliate and decongest and a honey and aloe cocoon. I like that it turns to a milk lotion on contact with water.' - DA.

Best Face Exfoliator: Rose Inc Skin Resolution Clarifying Toner
9 of 15

'This is sophisticated and elegant. With mandelic acid, niacinamide and willow bark extract, it gently exfoliates without a harsh drying effect. My skin felt notably smoother and more refined.' - DA.

Best Face SPF: Caudalie Vinosun Ocean Protect SPF50+
10 of 15

'In a strong category, this really stood out, ticking all the boxes of a brilliant, new-gen SPF. It feels weightless on the skin, leaves no white cast, is non-greasy, reef-friendly and fragrance-free. It's also suitable for pretty much every skin type.' - Dr Ewoma Ukeleghe, cosmetic doctor and founder of London skin clinic Skndoctor.

Best Skin Supplement: Artah Skin Clinic
11 of 15

'With its well-curated ingredients list and chic branding, this punches well above its weight.

Best Hand Cream: Holland & Barrett Aloe And Cucumber Hand Cream

Best Sensitive Skin Saviour: Avu00e8ne Tolu00e9rance Control Skin Recovery Balm
14 of 15

Best Moisturiser: Estu00e9e Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Youth Power Cru00e8me
15 of 15

'This is an anti-ageing product, but does so much more than lessen the look of fine lines. My skin looks healthier, more even and radiant. It's luxurious but also sinks in fast, making it ideal for summer.' - PM.
