Every year, beauty editors from the international editions of ELLE come together to decide on the best in beauty for the ELLE International Beauty Awards (EIBA). This year is the 10th anniversary of the EIBA, and ELLE beauty editors from around the world will host a virtual ceremony to announce the winners. The winning products are bigger, better, and more fabulous than ever before. Watch the live virtual ceremony here to see which breakthroughs in clean beauty, most beloved mascara on the market, and more, took home top honors in the 2022 ELLE International Beauty Awards.
An homage to Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc, the famed luxury hotel in the French Riviera, this woody-floral fragrance was created to evoke a seaside vacation. ELLE Italy’s Michela Motta calls it “a summer day in a bottle,” while ELLE Taiwan’s Yvonne Yang says it reminds her of “diving into the Mediterranean Sea.”
Lash Idôle Mascara
“The curved wand mimics the shape of the eyelid, which makes it the perfect tool to curl and coat lashes,” says ELLE USA’s Margaux Anbouba. The lengthening and volumizing gel also goes on “super-dark in a single coat,” says Anbouba, for a lash look that’s both dramatic and enduring—yet easy to remove at day’s end.
Radiant Cream Foundation SPF 25
This versatile, buildable formula hydrates without leaving the skin too slick. ELLE Germany’s Barbara Huber says, “The texture is soft and creamy, then dries down to a natural, radiant finish. You need so little—less than a pea-size amount for the whole face—and there is no transfer or fading throughout the day.”
Vital Perfection LiftDefine Radiance Face Mask
In 10 minutes, this sheet mask tightens and brightens the face and neck. Editors noted the speedy results, with ELLE Kazakhstan’s Dariya Nogayeva-Alishkevich sharing that her skin looked “healthy, radiant, and younger” after just one treatment.
Abeille Royale Advanced Youth Watery Oil
Recently reformulated, Advanced Youth Watery Oil employs royal jelly and four types of honey to revitalize the skin and help speed its repair. How does it feel? Divine, says ELLE Canada and ELLE Quebec’s Théo Dupuis-Carbonneau, who calls it “completely luxurious—hello, gold glitter in the bottle!”
Using a reparative complex (TFC8) developed by scientist and physician Augustinus Bader to heal burned skin, this treatment does it all, says ELLE UK’s Jennifer George: “Hydrating, plumping, evening skin tone—you name it, this does it. Whenever I stop using it, I notice. I might be tied to this product for life.”
Tonic Moisturizing Balm With Essential Oils
Light and fast-absorbing, this body balm is perfect for someone who hates to wait for lotion to dry. Its energizing scent of geranium, mint, and rosemary also earned praise, with ELLE Vietnam’s Nicky Khánh Ngọc saying it left “the whole bathroom perfumed after my shower.”
This skin-smoothing and firming emulsion earned high marks for its efficient results. ELLE Poland’s Agnieszka Zygmunt says that after using Le Sculpteur twice a day for two weeks on her glutes, thighs, and stomach, her “skin was visibly firmer, smoother, and softer.”
N°.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner
This multitasking, super-moisturizing formula softens, detangles, and hydrates; boosts shine; seals split ends; and diminishes frizz. It’s also appropriate for all hair types. Editors noted its versatility, with ELLE Hungary’s Mónika Fodor-Kassai calling it “as effective as a deep hair mask, but much faster.”
Curl Manifesto Bain Hydratation Douceur
A nourishing mix of manuka honey, ceramides, and glycerin, this cleanser enhances curly hair and quells frizz. ELLE Brazil’s Pedro Camargo calls it “the best shampoo for curly hair I have ever used. It supports the natural texture of my curly, fine hair without weighing it down.”
Dry Texturizing Spray
Oribe’s popular styler absorbs excess oil and adds soft hold. The result: big, sexy hair—instantly. ELLE Mexico’s Carolina Álvarez calls it the “best spray for crazy volume” as well as the best way to extend your style for several days.
Love/Smoothing Instant Mask
Made with energy from renewable sources, as well as recycled and recyclable packaging, this frizz-fighting, strand-softening conditioner helps tame unwieldy natural texture. ELLE Greece’s Rozina Kouri says, “This product became my best friend during my summer vacation, because it protected my hair from the frizz caused by humidity in the Greek islands.”
This lash-defining formula contains organically farmed ingredients, and its refillable tube is made from 50 percent recycled plastic—but editors were equally wowed by its results. ELLE Norway’s Marthe Jakobsen says, “I actually thought it was impossible to create a certified-organic mascara that could deliver on length and volume and be long-lasting. But Kjaer Weis did it.”
Skin Food Body Butter
Weleda, a pioneer in eco-friendly beauty, has repackaged its best-selling body butter in a recycled and recyclable glass jar, plus an outer box made from 85 percent recycled cardboard. ELLE France’s Elisabeth Martorell praised the brand for giving its “iconic cream” new green packaging just in time for Weleda’s 100-year anniversary. “That’s a very Weleda philosophy,” she says.
