Beauty contributes to all aspects of our health and wellness, and the care we dedicate to ourselves directly impacts how we feel and, in turn, who we are. This year, for the 37th edition of Marie Claire’s Beauty Excellence Awards, the jury tested dozens of new products, debated, and selected only the most innovative. After months of deliberating, we concluded with six international awards, 10 U.S. winners, and one transatlantic honoree. Powdered skincare, body creams, and powerful serums: here are the best new launches.
