Looking for a new eye cream? 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 six winning eye creams chosen 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.

Biologique Recherche Patchs Défatigants, €70

“These don’t just go under the eye – they go on the upper and lower eye. I used it at night and saw such a difference. A great quick fix.”
