This year, the Real Beauty Awards sent over 150 anti-aging skin products from 80 beauty brands to be tested and reviewed by real women for a month. The results are coming and these are the products that really do what they claim.

The masks are growing, mainly because of their Instagram appeal.
But we wanted products that made a real difference, instead of cute-looking selfie tricks.
The Real Beauty Awards divided these masks into two categories – traditional masks in tube or pot and sheet masks – and was delighted to find face-worthy effects in both.

Sixty seconds to improve the skin? You bet.
There wasn't a tester who wouldn't use this flash fix again and we had great reviews on skin that looked radiant, smooth and silky, young and beautiful.
“I love how my skin felt right away. I also used it a few times before bed and my skin was refreshed and shaggy in the morning. My skin has improved in terms of smoothness. My partner said my skin is much softer than normal. I tend to agree. I can't stop touching my skin after applying the mask. ”Mihaela Buibas, London.

This mask-cream hybrid is left overnight and testers find it worth waiting eight hours for results as good as these.
“There has been a definite improvement. Colleagues asked if I had Botox. Tracey Priest, West Midlands.

This foam mask was not as easy to use as some as it had to be applied for 15 minutes, then massaged and left overnight.
Unclear or not, most felt that they produced the regenerative results you would expect from a cosmeceutical brand.
“My skin was looking fantastic. I was really impressed by this, recommend and will continue to use it. I have been complimented several times for my brighter skin. I loved it. ”Dawn Scott, West Midlands.
