Free From Skincare Awards 2014 - Winners


free from skincare awards 2014 logo

The wait is finally over the winners were announced yesterday (Friday). It is really lovely to see brands that I have introduced on my blog win awards. For those who are not aware, The Free From Skincare Awards were founded in 2012 to encourage and reward manufacturers of skincare products ‘free from’ many of the allergens, chemicals, additives and fragrances associated with skin sensitivities, allergies, ethical and health concerns. They are run by Michelle Berriedale-Johnson editor of the FreeFromMatters.com websites and director of the hugely successful FreeFrom Food Awards (now in their seventh year) and Alex Gazzola, deputy editor of Skinsmatter.com and a health writer specialising in allergies.

  3. Great to see some of my favourite brands on there and also well known ones too! Quite surprised NYR won Bronze for their mascara...I've tried it and don't like it at all! I picked up some samples from Lyonsleaf on Sunday so looking forward to trying those out!

    1. I'll let you in on some insider knowledge, the make up category doesn't attract as many entrants as others. If you have a favourite product/brand for this category then encourage them to enter the awards for next year :)

    1. Sadly not a brand that I am able to use but I know many people out there sing its praises and now they are runners up in these awards so that just goes to show it :)
