Record-breaking 142 winners to be revealed at the Her World Beauty Awards 2009/10

Singapore, 27 January 2010 Her World, SPH Magazines Pte Ltd's ("SPH Magazines") flagship title and Singapore’s No. 1 women’s magazine, is holding its much-anticipated annual beauty event for the ninth year running.

This year, Her World will be giving out 142 awards – the largest number in the history of the awards.

Ms Elisabeth Gwee, Editor of Her World, said: “The Her World Beauty Awards remains the most important beauty event in Singapore, thanks to avid support from readers and advertisers every year. In 2009, there was a slew of beauty innovations, from creams and serums that plump up skin at the gene level to vibrating mascaras. With the beauty industry evolving in ways never seen before, it was natural to include more categories and awards to keep up with the trends, as well as include updated perennial favourites, like whitening, hair and body care products, and makeup.”

The event honours outstanding players in the beauty industry for products released between October 2008 and September 2009 that have demonstrated unparalleled superiority.

The Her World Beauty Awards aims to acknowledge brands that are instrumental in influencing beauty and lifestyle trends through continually striving to deliver products of distinction to consumers.

The team at Her World narrowed down the product selections to over 650 products in 72 categories. In total, more than 20,000 votes were received from readers to determine the Readers’ Choice winners.

Her World’s expert panel, consisting of editors, beauty writers and dermatologists, were roped in to road-test nominated products to determine the Editors’ Choice winners.

The overall grand prize is the Beauty Product Of The Year, which is given out by the editorial judging panel for a product which they feel is exceptional, in that it is one of a kind, innovative, user-friendly, and delivers on its promises.

Ms Gwee said: “Consumers have become a lot more sophisticated and demanding in terms of what they require out of beauty products, and the awards help highlight the very best there is in the market.”

Said Ms Irene Tan, General Manager, Fashion & Beauty, SPH Magazines: "Since the launch of the Her World Beauty Awards in 2001, it has grown from strength to strength and has become an effective platform for our beauty partners to showcase their power-packed beauty products.”

The Her World Beauty Awards 2009 ceremony will be held on 29 January 2010 (Friday) at 15 Minutes café at LASALLE College of the Arts from 3pm to 6pm.
