ELLE (Canada) - - News -

For our third an­nual ELLE In­ter­na­tional Beauty Awards, we polled the most prod­uct-ob­sessed and dis­cern­ing ex­perts we know: ELLE ed­i­tors. All 45 beauty pros from our net­work of global edi­tions voted, and the re­sults are in. Here are the most in­no­va­tive, time-sav­ing, straight-up-life-chang­ing prod­ucts of the year. h

Shi­seido Ul­timune Power In­fus­ing Con­cen­trate ($78). This serum was the first to tar­get skin’s im­mu­nity; it also func­tions as a booster to any other skin­care prod­uct in your cab­i­net. ED­I­TOR’S POV

BEST CON­DI­TIONER Bum­ble and Bum­ble Hair­dresser’s In­vis­i­ble Oil Con­di­tioner ($42). This creamy con­di­tioner con­tains a com­bi­na­tion of six del­i­cate oils to douse hair in un­par­al­leled shine.

“It re­ally helps man­age and de­tan­gle coarse and re­bel­lious hair. It leaves it soft and silky with­out weigh­ing it down.” – Angélique Mar­tel, beauty ed­i­tor, ELLE Québec “I love that it lit­er­ally ex­pands hair, down to the last strand. It’s like a push-up bra for limp hair. It’s smart be­cause it’s a styling sham­poo—so as soon as you get out of the shower, your hair is al­ready in a bet­ter state in terms of vol­ume.”

“It’s so silky and light. I like the way it il­lu­mi­nates the skin and makes the com­plex­ion fresh and glow­ing. You look like you’ve just ar­rived from a sum­mer va­ca­tion.”

“It’s the spray that all beauty ed­i­tors brought with them on va­ca­tion in 2014. Sun pro­tec­tion that is fi­nally sexy!”

Vichy Lab­o­ra­toires Aqualia Ther­mal Light Cream ($38.50). Top up your skin’s lost mois­ture with this gel-based Vichy Ther­mal Spa Wa­ter-laced cream. The ap­pli­ca­tion alone low­ers cor­ti­sol lev­els. ED­I­TOR’S POV – Marta Ru­dow­icz, beauty di­rec­tor, ELLE Poland

– Bar­bara Hu­ber, beauty di­rec­tor, ELLE Ger­many Sis­ley Cel­luli­nov ($265). Red al­gae, In­dian-lo­tus ex­tract and caf­feine are blended to­gether in a vel­vety whipped cream that firms slack­ing skin. ED­I­TOR’S POV – Alice Bur­suc, beauty ed­i­tor, ELLE Ro­ma­nia

– Emily Dougherty, beauty & fit­ness di­rec­tor, ELLE U.S.

– Janna O’Toole, beauty & fit­ness di­rec­tor, ELLE Aus­tralia Lancôme Grandiôse ($35). This mas­cara’s twisted wand and elas­tomer­moulded brush trans­late into ef­fort­less ap­pli­ca­tion. It’s also the most stun­ning mas­cara de­sign. ED­I­TOR’S

La Prairie Cel­lu­lar Swiss Ice Crys­tal Dry Oil ($365). Elim­i­nate dry­ness and re­store glow with a weight­less oil that glides over skin like liq­uid plat­inum. ED­I­TOR’S POV

Shi­seido Fu­ture So­lu­tion LX To­tal Re­gen­er­at­ing Body Cream ($150). Tighten up, soften and erad­i­cate dry bits of skin with this lux­u­ri­ous to­tal-body cream. – Branislava Kos­tic, beauty ed­i­tor, ELLE Ser­bia

L’Oréal Paris Fi­bral­ogy Sham­poo ($6). This deep­cleans­ing sham­poo fattens up and am­pli­fies hair’s body the same won­der­ful way a crois­sant swells your waist­line. ED­I­TOR’S POV – Vanessa Craft, beauty di­rec­tor, ELLE Canada

– Be­len Ucros, beauty ed­i­tor, ELLE Bel­gium Chanel Per­fec­tion Lu­mière Vel­vet ($48). This foun­da­tion con­tains soft-fo­cus pig­ments that cre­ate a blur­ring ef­fect, and the matte-vel­vet fin­ish is straight-up ad­dic­tive. – Maria Tara­nenko, beauty ed­i­tor, ELLE R
