Skincare is having a golden age, with a new "breakthrough product" popping up on shelves rapidly every month. But as consumers, we need expert help to let us in on what really works, and what's just trendy. We often can't get that advice from sales staff in the mall, so we turn to seasoned pros like our next Beauty Awards Expert Anna Palabyab-Rufino, a Board-Certified dermatologist and partner at Beautique, MD., a boutique beauty clinic in Bonifacio Global City. We're grateful that she's here to tell us what she loves about the skincare nominees, and what are certified winners in her book. You'll want to stay tuned for this!

And last but definitely not in any way least, we sought out advice from one of Manila's top beauty bloggers and founder of Project Vanity, Liz Lanuzo! You'll often see her doing the rounds at a lot of beauty brand event launches, trying out daring and out-of-the-box makeup looks, formulating new bestselling products for her own skincare line In Her Element, and doing beauty and career talks! For this year's Beauty Awards, she helped review makeup and skincare nominees, and gave her best bets for adding to your own kit.
