Best New Beauty Products: Japanese Cosmetics Ranking 2023 Mid-Year

The Best Cosmetics Awards 2023 Mid-Year: Grand Prize

Japan’s biggest and the most trusted beauty and cosmetics website, @cosme introduces cosmetics products with reviews of real users. The website hosts beauty awards called the Best Cosmetics Awards twice a year (in June and December) with the up-to-date rankings of popular beauty products in Japan by category and item. The awards are incredibly influential among cosmetics users, and award-winning products tend to become even more popular or sell out quickly after awards are revealed.

The 2023 mid-year edition of the Best Cosmetics Awards has been revealed recently with the latest cosmetics rankings of newly released beauty products in the first half of the year.

I have previously introduced the Best Cosmetics Awards 2023 Mid-Year rankings in different categories as below:
▶ Skin Care Products: Japanese Cosmetics Ranking 2023 Mid-Year
▶ Base Makeup Products: Japanese Cosmetics Ranking 2023 Mid-Year
▶ Point Makeup Products: Japanese Cosmetics Ranking 2023 Mid-Year
▶ Body and Hair Care Products: Japanese Cosmetics Ranking 2023 Mid-Year

In this article, we are going to look at 10 beauty products that have received the Grand Prize, the most honorable title of the awards. These 10 newly released products have won the most positive feedback from real users so far this year. Let’s find out the best new-buy beauty products in Japan in 2023!
