This is the best way to submit a nomination for the SELF Wholesome Magnificence Awards 2023

Our annual Healthy Beauty Awards honor the best new products for skin, body, hair and makeup after a comprehensive process of testing and review by dermatologists, beauty experts, influencers and SELF editors. We are looking for products that are effective, easy to use, functional in our everyday lives and ultimately bring a certain level of joy.

How to submit an application for the SELF Healthy Beauty Awards 2023

To submit a product for review, brands must complete this form. Please complete one form per product. So, if your brand is submitting a facial moisturizer and a serum, you’ll need to fill out two separate forms. We ask each brand to submit not more than five products in total.

To be eligible, a product must have launched (or plan to launch) between July 1, 2022 and June 1, 2023. Pre-existing products that have been reformulated, launched in new colors or shades, repackaged or significantly improved within the allowable time period are fair game.

Below you will find our list of eligible product categories. If you’re wondering if a product fits one of these, email us at and we can help. Please note that we do not consider supplements of any kind (eg collagen drinks or biotin vitamins).

You are welcome not ship all samples for testing at this time. If we would like to test your product, we will contact you after reviewing your submission, which may take a few weeks.

All submissions are due via the 2023 Healthy Beauty Awards Submission Form to Tuesday, February 21 at 12 p.m. EST.
