12 beauty product superstars approved by Elle’s international editors

The hardest working names on your shelf

By ELLE team  March 7th, 2017

We asked ELLE beauty editors, from Japan to Slovenia, to pick 12 life-changing products that they will be relying on to keep their hair, skin and nails looking on point in 2017. If you’re looking for a red lipper to stop traffic on your Saturday night out, Dior’s luscious red was upvoted by the beauty editors from Spain and Australia.

Mask addicts can hit up Estée Lauder for their latest fix, while those in search of an anti-ageing champion to reverse premature skin damage can turn their attention to Sisley’s luxurious new cream… once you’ve treated your face to Lancôme’s powerful new moisturiser, of course. 

Ok, we know the suspense is killing you. Say hello to the winners of the Elle International Beauty Awards 2017.

12 beauty products Elle’s international editors are loving

Oribe Signature Shampoo, Rs 2,666 approximately


Cindy Kerberova, ELLE Czech Republic: The perfect solution for when you need to deep-clean your hair, and remove styling products and dirt. Your hair will feel great after this protective Shampoo.

Vanessa Craft, ELLE Canada: It redefines luxury haircare—the bottles are works of art, the fragrance is dreamy and the shampoo leaves your hair feeling clean and soft.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask, Rs 7,200/pack of four


Mamta Mody, ELLE India: The foil makes sure your face is force-fed a heap of skin-loving active ingredients so that it looks well-rested in 20 minutes. And it's just the opportunity you need to join the mask selfies on Instagram.

Kate Guest, ELLE Malaysia: The foil layer helps seal in the serum, effectively speeding up the hydrating process. The visible effects last up to the next day.

M.A.C InstaCurl Lash Mascara in InstaBlack, Rs 1,990


Mamta Mody, ELLE India: Unlike any other curling mascara, I love that this poker-straight wand can be twisted into a hook to create any look you want.

Velina Vasileva, ELLE Bulgaria: Get a natural look with one twist, and doll eyes, when the brush is more curved. The formula of the mascara is the best—forget all about clumps and smudging.

Phyto Phytokératine Extrême Cream, Rs 2,735 approximately


Marta Rudowicz, ELLE Poland: Just when you think your hair needs a cut to get back into shape, try this. The keratin gives the hair a second life, and makes it smooth and radiant.

Saara Ritvos, ELLE Finland: It’s light, but moist enough to make even thin hair look thick and extra healthy.

Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick, Rs 2,800


Maria Fernández-Miranda, ELLE Spain: If it wasn’t for the colour, I would think I was applying a moisturising balm, instead of a lipstick.

 Janna Johnson O’Toole, ELLE Australia: Packed with rich pigments and hydrating mango butter, these lipsticks moisturise while providing hours of colour.

Lancôme Énergie de Vie Liquid Care, Rs 6,500

Face moisturiser

Vanessa Craft, ELLE Canada: Inspired by the many incredible K-beauty rituals, this antioxidant-rich liquid lotion is the perfect wake-me-up.

Elisabeth Martorell, ELLE France: It has all the freshness of a lotion, the concentration of a serum and the hydration of a cream.

The Body Shop Hawaiian Kukui Cream, Rs 2,995

Body moisturiser

Catarina Parkinson, ELLE Portugal: Super-indulgent, it’s a pleasure to hydrate your skin with this cream. The only thing better would be using it while you are actually in Hawaii.

Nicole Newman, ELLE South Africa: This rich and creamy moisturiser makes your skin feel as though it’s on holiday.

Kérastase L’Incroyable Blowdry Lotion, Rs 2,735 approximately

Hair Styling

Nuttika Ongksirimemongkol, ELLE Thailand: This makes at-home blow-drying a lot easier, as the micro waxes in the formula allow the hair to be set and reset.

Barbara Huber, ELLE Germany: The perfect blow-dry in a bottle. It creates flexible styles, from straight to curly. It allows you to restyle your hair without reapplying it.

La Roche-Posay Anthelios range, Rs 2,300 onward


Krisztina Gurics, ELLE Hungary: It gives maximum protection in various textures and formulas for everybody, in all situations. Brume Visage Invisible is my all-time favourite from the line

Petra Windschnurer, ELLE Slovenia: I like my suncare with mineral UV filters, no fragrance and nourishing benefits. These are all Anthelios’ advantages.

Sisley Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge, Rs 23,900 approximately


Alice Bursuc, ELLE Romania: The formula acts on all signs of ageing: genetic, environmental and behavioural. This is the cream of a new generation!

Claire Thys, ELLE Belgium: It’s like a miracle broth for any age-related skincare concerns you might have.
