Being bombarded with new launches every month can leave even the best of us perplexed. It can get difficult to sort through the pile and pick out products that truly deliver on their claims. But not when you have us on your side!

Every month, we navigate through the sea of products in the beauty space and do the hard job of narrowing it down to five that we think are worth your hard-earned moolah. And with summer upon us, what better time to upgrade your skincare routine than now. Scroll down for a list of five products we think are totally worth getting your hands on.

 

01. Lakme 9 To 5 Matte Moist Clay Face Mask

01. Lakme 9 To 5 Matte Moist Clay Face Mask

With the summer sun shining down on us, we all need that one oil-controlling product that we can blindly rely on. And guess what? We’ve found our go-to in the Lakme 9 To 5 Matte Moist Clay Face Mask. A blend of kaolin and bentonite clays, this mask draws out deep-set dirt and impurities while keeping oiliness at bay. Moreover, thanks to ingredients such as green tea and glycerine, this face mask protects against oxidative damage while keeping your skin hydrated and supple.

 

02. Pond's Double Action Serum

02. Pond's Double Action Serum

By now, all of us know of the amazing benefits of retinol in skincare. That’s why, when we heard of the retinol-infused Pond’s Double Action Serum, we knew we had to try it out. And guys, it certainly doesn’t disappoint! Formulated with vitamin B3 and retinol-c, this serum successfully fights seven skin problems, including wrinkles and fine lines, dryness and uneven skin tone. If premature ageing, dullness, or dark spots are some concerns you deal with regularly, you definitely need to check this one out.

 

03. Lakme 9 To 5 Matte Moist Mattifying Face Toner

03. Lakme 9 To 5 Matte Moist Mattifying Face Toner

If your skincare routine doesn’t already have a toner, we suggest you get one RN! From preventing your skin from getting too oily to tightening your pores, a toner is that unsung hero of skincare that you definitely need. And if you were to ask us, we are totally crushing over the Lakme 9 To 5 Matte Moist Mattifying Face Toner. Formulated with green tea and witch hazel, this toner not only protects your skin against environmental damage but also tightens your pores to make your skin appear super smooth.

 

04. Vaseline Anti-Bacterial Hand Cream

04. Vaseline Anti-Bacterial Hand Cream

Thanks to the constant hand washing and sanitising, our hands left dry and flaky. But it wouldn’t be an understatement to say that our hand care routine has transformed since we started using the Vaseline Anti-Bacterial Hand Cream. Enriched with antibacterial actives such as neem and tulsi, along with moisturising ingredients such as glycerine and vitamin, this 2-in-1 product has been clinically proven to kill germs while keeping your hands nourished and moisturised in the process.

 

05. Dove Intense Damage Repair Hair Mask

05. Dove Intense Damage Repair Hair Mask

With the salons being shut for a major part of last year, most of us took matters into our own hands by resorting to box hair dyes, DIY hair treatments and the worst of all – cutting our own hair. The result? Dull and damaged hair. But the Dove Intense Damage Repair Hair Mask has successfully salvaged the situation for us. With ¼ moisturising cream, this tub right here is perfect for dry and frizzy hair. Additionally, the keratin actives help in repairing intense damage to strengthen and nourish each strand.
