As a beauty lover, it can be challenging to pinpoint great products to try with the hundreds of thousands of choices on the shelves of our favourite beauty counters. This is why in our Clozette Beauty Awards 2017, we try to narrow down which products are worth our money and attention and give them all the credit they deserve for making us look and feel beautiful.
And what better way to do it than through a collaborative approach with our beloved Community, whose passion for beauty goes beyond looking at labels and actually trying and testing out products themselves to find out which ones are truly holy grail material.
So the question lies: what makes a great product in our beauty panel's book? Keep on reading to find out.
Starting with our very own Editor, Becks Ko, she highlighted, "Efficacy must come first, followed by texture, application, and packaging! If it doesn't work, no matter how amazing it looks or smells or feels, chuck it."
One of our Clozette Ambassadors, Ryan Sim, shares, "A great product does not need to be expensive or fancy. What matters more is if it can deliver what it claims and if the ingredients and science used are sound. I believe there is no lousy product, just product that is not suitable for you."
Meanwhile, Hazel Vinluan, a Clozette Ambassador from the Philippines says, "I always consider the price and the quality of a beauty product. Whatever the brand name, it should be what it promises to be. I love hoarding great beauty products that are consistent, affordable and of course cruelty-free!"
