We love a good deal, plain and simple. There’s nothing like coming across a Rs 1000 face serum that really truly does it all or discovering a Rs 500 cream that actually lightens dark spots overnight. But we are also the ones who enjoy splurging. We wouldn’t say we get the same sort of adrenaline rush when we find a Rs 15,000 cream as we do when we snatch up something for Rs 500. We mean dropping that kind of money on a product isn’t a buy-on-a-whim kind of situation. It’s the type of purchase that needs to be thought about. We need to know we’ll treasure it and enjoy it over and over (and over) again.
Throughout the years, we’ve tried our fair share of high-ticket items to deem their purchases. Think the hotly anticipated Kardashian-Jenner launches, all the Fenty goods, and rent-swallowing skincare hits. There are countless serums, potions, and lotions that come with head-spinning price tags, but seldom deserve a spot in our beauty stash. On the other hand, the ones that do, are so divinely exquisite you’ll find yourself justifying the cost after one use. Speaking of which, we’re listing down the cult-loved skincare products that are 100% worth it.
There’s a reason this product is often found in the skincare routines of celebrities and ‘it’ girls alike. In two words, it works. Trust me: You’ll see brighter, glow-ier, more youthful-looking skin within a few days to a week. For beautiful skin we think that’s worth it. The best bits? It’s got Alia Bhatt’s stamp of approval.
We know what you’re thinking, this skin-perfecting serum is quite pricey, but they are also one of the best brands around for creating absolutely unmatched hard-working formulas. Trust us, you’ll notice an instant difference after using this serum. It gives an instant shimmer to the skin while injecting hydration at the surface and deeper skin layers, leaving skin firmer, refreshed and more radiant for the long term.
An amazing moisturiser, this uber-nourishing gel formula is the perfect buy for those with extremely uncomfortable and sensitive skin. All it takes is a swipe of this lightweight, non-greasy gel onto the skin for a cooling, soothing effect that instantly imparts a glow. Its unique aqua-holding formula prevents dehydration of damaged skin while keeping it fresh without any irritation.
This one is worth every penny. And to be fair, it will cost a hell of lot of pennies. It’s especially made to legit first and lift the entire eye area. The vitamin A derivative is well-known for effectively stimulating collagen production to smooth out wrinkles. Here, it’s paired with ferulic acid, a standout antioxidant to help prevent environmental damage. On top of all that, it’s lightweight enough to be used in the a.m. and p.m. and on both top and bottom lids.
This makeup cleansing balm is a miraculous, magical formula that’ll melt all your makeup away. It’s a gentle balm suited for all skin types. The balmy formula dissolves all the makeup. All you need to do is take a dollop and work it into dry skin, add water to emulsify it, and lastly, rinse. Follow it up with a gentle cleanser.
Meet the best facial you’ve ever had in a bottle. It’s a lightweight serum ( so much so it feels like water), doesn’t clog or irritate the skin, is next to scentless, and works to give a dewy, healthy glow with all the moisture you need in the summer and a trusty layer in the winter. Although it’s got a hefty price tag, a bottle lasts a year – not something we can say often.
If your skin is super sensitive, you need this calming serum. It uses oats to soothe inflammation and sunflower seed and avocado extract to strengthen skin and prevent it from becoming irritated in the future. Oh, and yes it’s free of synthetic fragrance and dyes – both of which can make inflammation way worse.
If you are not into luxe skincare and are looking for budget-friendly options, this skin-refining sleeping mask is the one to call on. We’re big fans of lust-worthy ingredients that give best bang-for-your-buck results and this sleeping mask is hands-down the most effective one out there. It feels 10 times more expensive than its actual price and is a miracle worker for those with parched-AF and sensitive skin. The creamy overnight formula ensures you wake up to ultra-dewy and plump skin.
Trust us, they are truly worth their high price tags!
