As we are getting ready for the European Natural Beauty Awards 2023, what better time to get to know all the nominated cosmetics of the year?

To avoid the presentation of the nominees becoming one heavy manual (even though we know it would be a good one!), we divided the nominee cosmetics into four parts. In this part of our nominee blog series, you can familiarize yourself with 17 incredible nominees.

If you want to learn even more about a certain nominee product or the brand behind the craftsmanship, click the link mentioned after the description. We welcome you all to celebrate European Natural Beauty with us!

Details of the products are written as the brands present them.
