Year after year, In the style editors are happy to reveal expert-approved products that deserve your attention. But in our humble opinion, our 2021 prices might just be the best yet. It’s been a hell of a year, to say the least, and leaning into your beauty and wellness routine can provide a feeling of joy and peace in the midst of the chaos. For the 26th year in a row, we surveyed the industry’s top makeup artists, hairstylists, dermatologists, manicurists and wellness gurus to determine winners in over 200 categories. Whether you are looking to revamp your routine or trade in proven gems, these will bring you a feeling of ease.
For the very first time, we added wellness and fragrance categories and gave our experts the opportunity to crown an “ MVP ” award, i.e. the most valuable product ( see what we did there) that kept them going this year. Not to mention that our distinguished panel got a facelift, including notable names such as Adir Abergel, Dr Rosemarie Ingleton, Melissa Wood-Tepperberg, Jin soon choi, and much more.
