If your skin is rough or stained with last week’s tan, a good exfoliant will leave you feeling clean and soft. The 15th annual IMAGE Beauty Awards supplement lists the best beauty launches of the last year, 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 five winning exfoliants chosen by Liz Dwyer, journalist and founder of Beauty Bootcamp; Careena and Lorraine Galligan, directors of the Galligan Beauty College; and Trudy Hayes, founder of the Raven Beauty app.
