Winners of the Best in Beauty Awards 2016 have been announced by Australia’s biggest beauty reviews website More than 7500 votes from across the country were submitted for the beauty products that have made their way into the hearts and bathroom cabinets of beauty lovers nationwide.


The beautyheaven Best in Beauty Awards showcase the top beauty products Australian women favour most, from a huge variety of price points and brands, ranging from Yves Saint Laurent to Garnier. Overall, KORA Organics and muk Haircare swept up the most awards with six winning products in their brand portfolios respectively.


Commenting on this year’s awards, beautyheaven Editor Rosemary Bracey says: “Beauty fanatics take their favourite brands and Holy Grail products very seriously, so it’s really exciting for us to be able to announce which products have taken out the top gongs for being Australia’s favourite beauty products of all time.”
