The IMAGE Beauty Awards: This year's best night creams

The 15th annual IMAGE Beauty Awards supplement is out now with the April issue of IMAGE magazine. Inside the supplement, you'll find the best beauty launches of the last year, brought to you in partnership with Boots. The awards are independently judged by Ireland's leading doctors, dermatologists, beauty professionals, make-up artists, hair experts and influencers.

IMAGE contributing editor Melanie Morris says, "I hope we've included some familiar favourites here, along with some future heroes you'll consider valuable new additions to your beauty bag. We've also made sure to pick up plenty of insider pro tips from our expert judging panel and have shared the best with you in the IMAGE Beauty Awards supplement."

Check out the nine winning night creams chosen by Dr Rosemary Coleman, consultant dermatologist and skincare specialist, Jennifer Rock, CEO and founder of The Skin Nerd online skin consultancy and creator of the Cleanse Off Mitt, Sinead Gallager, aesthetic nurse and co-founder of the Renew Aesthetic Clinics and Dr Jane Mulrooney, cosmetic dermatologist and co-founder of the Dr Mulrooney Clinic.

"Your skin wakes up looking like it’s had eight hours’ sleep."
– Rosaleen McMeel

Elemis Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil, €68.55

"This is a great novelty product – it resyncs the skin’s repair and renewal system based on the circadian rhythm."
– Jane Mulrooney

Shiseido Waso Clear Mega-Hydrating Cream, €35


"This is for dry, mature skin. It has a consistency like a gel cream, lovely packaging, and it’s very hydrating."
– Rosemary Coleman

Holos Get Better Butter, €37.99

"This was my number one cream of all. It’s a white cream that feels very pure, it’s an Irish-made product, and I loved everything about it. Skin in the morning felt really silky, it has a lovely juniper fragrance, and I will be looking out for other skincare products from Holos."
– Rosemary Coleman

Filorga Skin-Absolute Night, €129

"The scent is lovely, and it has a gradual release of ingredients – brown seaweed for wrinkles, peptides, hyaluronic acid and vitamin C."
– Jane Mulrooney


Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream, €85

"Another great retinol product that stops you from overusing it."
– Sinead Gallagher


Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair, €91.50

"This has everything in the one: vitamin C, peptides, hyaluronic acid, 1% encapsulated retinol, and the buffer cream is really soothing to counteract the retinol. It’s a great over the counter starting point for people who want to try retinol. You can tailor make it to yourself."
– Jane Mulrooney


Uriage Eau Thermale Water Sleeping Mask, €19

"There is nothing irritating in this, and it will leave you with plumper skin – a drink for thirsty skin."
– Jennifer Rock

Payot Crème No 2 Cachemire, €35
