The fifth annual Australian Beauty Awards gives beauty brands the chance to prove their excellence to renowned beauty experts and consumers right across Australia. The products entered into each of the eight categories – body, eyes, face, fragrance, hair, hands/nails, lips and skincare – have been available in stores throughout the year and now face the ultimate test by our Judges and Readers in two distinct choice awards.
A panel of industry experts, along with beauty editors from key Bauer Media titles, including The Australian Women’s Weekly, Woman’s Day, CLEO, Cosmopolitan and Harper’s Bazaar, test thousands of products, judging them on a broad set of criteria for the Judges' Choice Awards. This criteria includes quality, value, originality, packaging and design, technical manufacture and innovation and consumer experience.
The public are also invited to vote for their favourite products, with prizes then awarded to the best and most popular products chosen by beauty consumers Australia-wide in the Readers' Choice Awards.
