To figure out if a skincare product is really working for you or no takes a lot of time and patience. Most of times people end up making an impulsive purchase simply based on the packaging and reviews.
But we at BeBeautiful like to think that we are a little different. Whenever we decide to buy a new product, we do a thorough research on the ingredients, reviews and patch test before adding the product to our beauty shelves.
And to help you make the same informed decision, we have curated a list of skincare products that Team BB used in 2019 and loved to bits because they actually made a difference. Read on to find out what they are...

Product – St. Ives Energizing Coconut & Coffee Scrub
“I have really dry skin and no amount of moisturiser is ever enough. This was when I read about the importance of regularly exfoliation. It apparently gets rid of the flakiness, which in turn helps the moisturiser work better. I bought myself a tube of the St. Ives Energizing Coconut & Coffee Scrub and use it once a week religiously; my skin has never felt better. The coffee in the scrub really helps to get rid of the dead skin, while the coconut oil helps to nourish and moisturise my skin. Definitely not giving up on this one!”

Product – Simple Kind to Skin Micellar Cleansing Water
“I am the laziest girl you will ever meet, and my skincare stops at a moisturiser and sunscreen before leaving the house each morning. Obviously, this (and the fact that I sometimes binge on junk food) started to lead to breakouts, something I never had before. This was when my friend suggested that I use the Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Water every night before I hit the sack, and my skin has only gotten better since. Not only has the acne reduced, but the overall quality of my skin has also drastically improved. The thing I love most about this product is the no-rinse formula – perfect for a person like me! I can safely call this the best thing that 2019 gave me.”

Product - Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Night Revival Eye Cream
“Although I have always been particular about my skincare routine, the one thing that I did not think I needed was eye cream. But this changed early last year when I started noticing some changes around my eye area. (You know, the fine lines and dark circles.) I bought myself a tube of the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Night Revival Eye Cream and I am so happy I did that. The product has a roll-on applicator, so I don’t have to worry about applying too much pressure. Plus, it beautifully nourishes and moisturises my under-eye area and ensures that I wake up bright-eyed each morning.”

Product – Pond’s Super Light Gel Oil Free Moisturiser
“My skin is really oily, which means that finding the right moisturiser for my skin type is a real hassle. Due to this problem, I would give up on a moisturiser completely on most days until Pond’s launched this amazing product – the Pond’s Super Light Gel Oil Free Moisturiser. The lightweight gel texture is easily absorbed into my skin and does not feel even a little bit greasy, making it perfect for my overly oily and acne-prone skin. Additionally, I love how easy it is on the pocket. Definitely going to keep coming back to this one.”

Product – Vaseline Lip Therapy Colour & Care Chapstick
“My lips are always chapped. No matter what the season, my lips are constantly dehydrated and chapped. I have lost the count of the number of times I have switched my lip balm brand as well as the number of home remedies I have indulged in. But the Vaseline Lip Therapy Colour & Care Chapstick changed everything for me. Believe it or not, my chapped lips have healed and how! I carry this product everywhere I go, because along with providing my lips with a boost of hydration, I love the sheer wash of colour that it gives my lips. It is a win-win for me.”
