Beauty awards: The six winners in our best serum category

If, like us, you’re obsessed with all things skincare – you’ll be dying to hear the results of this year’s IMAGE Beauty Awards. The serum category is one of our personal favourites. While serums can be pricier than other skincare products (such as moisturisers and cleansers) they guarantee enormous benefits. Of course, like all beauty products, some are better than others. A good serum will offer a highly concentrated formula of particular ingredients for a specific skin complaint. Some are for ageing, others for redness or acne. As the ingredients are highly concentrated, a little goes a long way. At the edge of your seat? These are the winners in the serum category


No7 Early Defence Glow Activating Serum, €32

“This is affordable, contains vitamin C and peptides, and is a great one for acne-prone, sensitive and younger skin.”
– Sinead Gallagher

The Burren Perfumery Organic Wild Rose Facial Serum, €36

“These serums are beautifully packaged, add hydration, nourish mature skin, and feel like a real treat. Another fabulous organic Irish product.”
– Rosemary Coleman

 

 

Dermalogica Barrier Defence Booster, €79.40

“You can add as many drops of this to whatever you want – your moisturiser or serum, and you can tailor make it to yourself. I love that there’s no fragrance too.”
– Jane Mulrooney

Avène Hydrance Intense Serum, €26

“This contains Avène’s Thermal Spring Water and has a hydrating as opposed to thick consistency. It’s best for sensitised, reactive skin, as it’s healing and lightweight.”
– Jennifer Rock

Clarins Double Serum, €72

“This has a water and lipid duo, is hydrating and contains turmeric.”
– Jennifer Rock

Lancôme Advanced Génifique Sensitive Serum, €73

“Advanced Génifique Sensitive is the perfect pick-me-up for tired, stressed skin. I tend to reach for this after a spell of travelling, as flying can wreak havoc on my complexion. The freshly activated dual serum helps soothe my skin when I need it most.”
– Rosaleen McMeel
