From ‘have you had Botox?’ creams to the £2.99 ‘spa in a sachet’ – the best anti-ageing products tested by you

Get the best celeb exclusives and video house tours to your inbox every evening with our daily newsletter

Do you feel in need of some serious anti-ageing products, but don’t even know where to start? Then you’ve come to the right place: The Real Beauty Awards 2020.

To cut through the hype and get to what really works, the OK! Beauty Team has handpicked 150 of the latest and greatest skincare products and given them to the ultimate testers – real women.

We sent each product on our shortlist to five women to try for a month, so they could report back on what they saw – or didn’t.

All the results are revealed in The Real Beauty Awards 2020. We call it that because every single accolade is given out purely on our testers’ reviews, nothing else.

  • Sign up for the BEST celebrity house tours and BIGGEST exclusive interviews

  • Seven of the best sheet masks to solve every skin issue

Our winners are the products that worked the best for the majority of our testers – it’s as simple as that.

Covering all your anti-ageing must-haves, you'll find our testers’ 100% genuine and independent reviews in this week's OK! magazine.

When a product hit the spot, our thrilled testers didn’t hold back. “Honestly, WONDER SERUM,” one tester said of Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex, £82 here, which scooped our all-time icon award in the premium category.

  • Seven best setting sprays to make your make-up last all day

“After just a week I noticed the fine lines reducing, after the third week, it began plumping and firming. OMG, absolutely so many compliments. ‘You look amazing, younger,’ from work colleagues. My sisters said, ‘Your fine lines have disappeared.’”

The mass market all-time icon – No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum, £26 here won some equally impressive accolades.

  • Seven best face serums to transform your skin

“Brilliant on wrinkles,” said one of its testers. “People asked if I had anything done and that I looked glowing and fresh. I’ll keep using this because it’s a lot cheaper than a face lift, and it's like a magic eraser for your skin. Amazing!”

And the reviews prove you don’t have to splash out for professional style effects. The cheapest winner in our entire awards was Garnier Nutri Bomb Coconut and Hyaluronic Acid Milky Tissue Mask, £2.99 here, which scooped the sheet mask award for its spa-worthy results.

“My skin felt soft, had an amazing glow and looked plumped and so much younger,” one tester said. “I felt I had just had a very expensive facial. I had quite a few comments from family about how glowing my complexion was.”

And don’t forget, all this testing was going on in the middle of a pandemic, with all the accompanying skin stress you’d expect. Our testers needed products capable of giving them a real confidence boost – and our winners delivered exactly that.

Our winning high street serum, La Roche-Posay Retinol B3 Serum, £38 here, was a lovely morale lift for one tester who told us: “I work in a food hall and numerous customers remarked at how glowing I looked, which was a real compliment as during coronavirus I now only wear mascara and lipstick to work, having ditched face make-up!’

Meanwhile one of our top-rated eye creams, Syrene Restore Eye Essence, £65 here, was a real winner with one of our NHS heroes. "I am a community nurse in the middle of a pandemic, and people have commented on how well I looked, despite not having any annual leave since March,” said one woman. "The only difference is this cream. I loved this product and its results – what more can I say?”
