BWB Beauty Awards: La Vie en Luxury

The luxury products that deliver serious results. 

To splurge or to save? It’s a serious question, now more than ever.The list below gathers some of the products that have brought us much joy this year — and rightfully earned themselves a spot on our luxury list for BWB’s Best of Beauty Awards. Each one stands out for bringing a little bit of luxury straight to our home: a high-tech hair tool that creates results as incredible as an in-salon blowout; a skincare mask that gives you that dewy post-facial glow; and a polish that keeps your manicure fresh for days.

Read below to discover the luxury products that deliver serious results… And yes, they are worth every penny.

The Wonderful Wand for Hair

Dyson Airwrap Collection

Let’s start off with the “bad” news. This high-tech gadget sets you back at least $500. But look at it this way: with up to seven different attachments, the Dyson Airwrap collection replaces your entire lineup of hair tools (blow dryer, flatiron and curling iron), and uses air rather than high heat to keep your locks healthy.

Hair Hydration Heroes

Christophe Robin Shade Variation Mask

These days, at-home color maintenance is more important than ever. When we find a product that adds intense shine and dimension, we give it the praise it deserves. Give your highlights a lift and give your lowlights more depth, all in one hair-saving product.

Sisley-Paris Hair Rituel Restructuring Nourishing Balm

The latest launch of the famous luxury French brand intensely nourishes, restores and restructures. Simple and efficient.

Leonor Greyl Complexe Energisant Hair Loss Leave-In Treatment

Stress from the past few months has heavily impacted my hair. Thankfully, I discovered Complexe Energisant. The treatment comes in 12 vials of a stimulating blend of vegetal extracts rich in trace elements. It has completely re-energized my scalp and returned strength to my hair.

Skin-Perfecting Masks

Valmont Deto2x Pack

Valmont is a favorite at BWB. The brand has been creating top-of-the-line and highly effective products for over 30 years. Our standout mask this year is their new effervescent Deto2x Pack. This oxygenating bubble mask aerates the skin and stimulates cell renewal. The result? A natural glow and refined texture.

Sisley-Paris Black Rose Cream Mask

Sisley’s Black Rose Cream Mask is the top of its class. Imagine a mask that gives the same kind of glow you get after a facial. After only a few minutes, this luxurious cream mask leaves you with that salon spa feeling. It’s a tried and loved product worth every penny!

Makeup Magic

Chantecaille Future Skin-Cushion Foundation

This family-owned, independent business is committed to healthy and clean beauty products. Further, the brand prioritizes environmental protection through philanthropy collections that support wildlife conservation. Chantecaille has just launched a new must-have: Future Skin-Cushion Foundation.

I recently tried and absolutely loved this water-based foundation. It gave me a refreshed, dewy and natural finish—in addition to nourishing, anti-aging ingredients. The perfect balance between skincare and makeup.

Best-in-Class Tools


This year, a boom in personalized tools and devices has made it even easier to achieve spa-like results from the comfort of your home. I have been using ReFa’s multi-angular facial roller and have seen visible results. It has helped tighten and tone the look of my skin for less visible puffiness. I use it weekly on the cheeks, jawline, neck and décolletage.

The Never-Ending Nail Polish

Essie Platinum Gel Couture Top Coat

As I continue to do my own nails more often at home, I am please to say that I have found the perfect top coat for a long-lasting manicure. I apply my natural nail polish (usually from Kure Bazaar or Sundays) and finish with this sensational top coat from Essie for a long-lasting, chip-resistant, fade-resistant, and glossy, even coverage. It seals in the nail color and provides an instant gel-like shine, yet can still be easily removed with acetone.
