The Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Facial Foam is a must-have for me. I use it first thing in the morning and last thing at night. It gently cleanses my skin without drying it out and leaves it feeling soft and refreshed.
The Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Colour in Plum Feather is a staple in my bag. It's ideal for a touch-up or for the days I need to do my makeup on the go. I love its natural matte finish and the fact that its handy and multipurpose.

I have oily skin which can be difficult to maintain during this humid weather but I also absolutely need to moisturise my skin to keep it in good health. So, I turn to the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Crème as its mineral-laden glacial water hydrates my skin without making it oily or greasy.
A perfect pout in a poppy shade is all I need to brighten my look in this gloomy weather. While I am not a big fan of glossy lips anyway, during monsoon I prefer matte lipsticks even more as they don’t smudge or get sticky. The Lakmé 9to5 Naturale Matte Sticks Lipstick in Crimson Town and Candy Centre are my current favourites.

The Lakmé Skin Gloss Serum is my go to for monsoon—I need a product that is light and won’t wash away with the rain! I personally like this product as it keeps my skin soft and hydrated and stays on even when I’m out in the rain.
For makeup the Lakmé 9to5 Mousse Lip & Cheek is what I prefer when it’s so dark and grey outside. So, I dress with extra bright shades of lipstick just to give myself that little boost. I like corals on my lips and my go to shade is the Lakmé 9to5 Mousse Lip & Cheek Color in Fuschia Suede.

The TRESemmé Climate Control Shampoo makes sure that my hair is frizz-free during monsoon. It’s an absolute must-have and I use it to wash my hair at least thrice a week.
The Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal is my absolute favourite during monsoon because it is waterproof and it defines my eyes beautifully. It is literally the only makeup I need to add an edge to my look.

I have an oily T-zone which just gets worse during monsoon thanks to all the humidity. So, I bank on the Pond’s Pure White Anti Pollution Face Wash to fight my oily, greasy skin. The product has helped me get rid of blemishes and acne as well.
I use the Lakmé Eyeconic Mascara on days when I need a pick-me-up, in terms of my look. This product is a lightweight, smudge-free, waterproof formula which works well even during monsoon. I apply the mascara mostly on the ends of the lashes for subtle definition, as opposed to from the very base of the lashes.
