It’s official, with over one million votes cast this year, Boots has been named Best Beauty Retailer at the Sunday Times Style Beauty Awards.

With over 500 of the biggest and best names in beauty lining its shelves, Boots is home to more beauty brands than anywhere else on the high street, and it has been recognised today at the largest consumer-voted beauty awards in the UK, the Sunday Times Style Beauty Awards.

Jamie Kerruish, Beauty Director at Boots, said: “We’d like to thank everyone who voted for Boots again this year. We’ve been on a major beauty journey and are constantly innovating in line with our customers’ needs, so it really is an honour to be recognised at the Sunday Times Style Beauty Awards. We’re very proud of the work that we have been doing to ensure Boots remains a firm favourite for anyone shopping beauty. Whether you're experimenting with makeup for the first time with the newly re-launched 17, or a certified beauty pro shopping for your favourite global beauty brands like Kylie Cosmetics and Drunk Elephant - we have everything you need at Boots.”

As part of its ongoing beauty journey, Boots has re-designed over 125 premium beauty halls across the UK to make incredible beauty even more accessible to its customers. We've launched the amazing new No7 Pro Derm Scan service which has revolutionised how customers can understand their Skin needs, and is performing exceptionally well - and over the past 24 months Boots has continued to expand its beauty offering, launching 68 cult brands including Mac Cosmetics, Kylie Skin and Kylie Cosmetics, Kiehl’s, Drunk Elephant, 17 and Makeup Revolution.
