You need these...

Stellar 15 celebrates the luminary products that have aced our awards over the last decade and a half as well as a whole host of rising stars you’ll want to get acquainted with.

THE beauty heavyweight judges — the absolute best of the best from the hair, make-up and skincare worlds – choose the winners, and some products have been picked again and again.

The biggest champ is Tweezerman which has won fifteen years in a row! (Yep, that’s every year.) Kerastase Nutritive Bain Satin 2 has picked up awards for fourteen of the years, and Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant and Olay Regenerist 3 Point Super Age-Defying Cream have won thirteen. That’s some real tried and tested corroboration right there!

There’s products everyone’s heard of like Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, which has REAL cult cleanser status, and it’s still the only cleanser across the range after two decades. Real proof that when you’ve found ‘the one’ there’s no need to look for another. As well as It products, we gave a shout out to the rising stars — the ones that haven’t been around for so long but have caused such a hype that they can’t go without a mention!

There are areas of the awards that have come on a fair bit since 2001. Getting a deep clean is all about the sonic cleanser nowadays (laters, flannels!) and the Foreo Luna 2 has wowed the beauty world with its technology and results.

As well as thumbs up from the judges (and you really don’t need more than that!), there’s celebrity endorsement too. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a major fangirl of the Moroccanoil Treatment for conditioning, styling, repairing AND strengthening her legendary locks, and it’s a backstage must at fashion week. (We’re genuinely not sure what we did before this existed!)

There’s some across the board winners too. Clarins Double Serum has won over one hundred awards in less that three years! That’s one rated anti-ageing hit.

Here are 11 products to add to your #want list...
