All The Beauty Influencers Are Trying Monodosing RN & Here Are The Deets


Have you heard the term ‘monodose’ before? Well, if you haven’t already, you are surely going to be seeing a different breed of beauty products on your social feeds that aren’t quite the size you are usually used to. Monodosing is the new skincare fad that many beauty influencers and editors alike are adopting. And we have to say, the monodosing trend makes some fairly good points. Here’s all you need to know about what monodosing is and why it shows promise in being the best new way of using beauty products.

What Is Monodosing?

Apart from the highly clinical sounding term, monodosing is quite simple to understand. It simply means using small doses of products or rather monodose products that are readily available in the market. Instead of bottles or tubs of products that allow you to wing the amount of product you use, monodose products come in either capsule or ampoule format each if which gives off the exact amount of product you need for one application. This approach allows you to not overuse the product and it also keeps the formulations fresh and concentrated.

Benefits Of Monodosing


There are a few benefits of monodosing that will appeal to the perfectionist in you. Here’s why this beauty trend probably is the next best thing.

No Product Wastage

Since the monodose products come in formats like ampoules, capsules, or spot patches, they are well distributed for single usage. You won’t be confused as to how much product you need for one application because the product is already packaged in an easy-to-use format that gives you the right quantity.

Prevents Contamination

Tub or jar packaging, in general, is not very sanitary as it requires you to dip your finger in it, especially if you’ve lost your spatula or use an uncleaned spatula. This can contaminate your product formula. The mouth of the product is also wide enough to be contaminated by dirt or other impurities in your surroundings. Monodose products on the other hand are to be opened when you need to use them and it is finished in one application. You may get a jar of capsules each of which is filled with cream and so you only use up one capsule per application while the rest of the cream is safe from contamination in their capsules within the storage jar.


Since monodose products are encased in single doses, you can pick up how many ever doses you need for your travels without having to carry the entire lot of them. They are also easy to store and take up less space.

Concentrated Action

Monodose packaging helps keep the formulations concentrated and fresh. They also offer targeted action. For example, pimple patches are a monodose product that target the pimple and treat it with healing ingredients leaving out the rest of the unaffected skin.

Products To Get You On The Monodosing Trend

There are a few monodose products available in the Indian market. Here are our favourites.

The Citrus Veil

Sheet masks are products that deliver concentrated serum and moisture to your skin. We love this K.Play Mandarin Brightening Sheet Mask by MyGlamm to give our skin a dose of fruity goodness.

The Pimple Fix

This is by far one of our favourite monodose products for sudden breakouts because it helps keep the pimple safe from environmental aggressors and can even be worn under makeup, which means no more popping pimples. The Face Shop Dr. Belmur Clarifying After Spot Cover Patches help remove the pimple overnight which is a miracle worker.

Capsule Cream Collection

The Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules have been in the market for a while and they are definitely a high-end product that we deem worthy of buying on repeat. These cream doses help your skin stay moisturised and protected from the environment, making it a winner for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin.

One Shot Recipe

The Innisfree Capsule Recipe Packs offer up just enough product that you need for a single-use. The packaging is sustainable and we love the different variants they come in enabling us to try them all without feeling guilty.

Slick Hydration

These on-the-go TONYMOLY Timeless Ferment Snail Eye Masks offer hydration to the skin under your eyes and don’t take up much space in your travel kit. The formula is highly concentrated thanks to its monodose packaging.
