This week beauty picks

The latest summer essentials you need to bag

  • The sundresses are out, we’re flashing our pedis in sandals (finally), and it’s time your beauty wardrobe, too, underwent a summer overhaul. A super-light sunscreen, an on-the-go cleanser, a nighttime hydrator and our current favourite colour for nails – we have your summer beauty shopping list right here.

    L’Oréal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence SPF 30 PA +++, Rs 475

    A gel sunscreen that feels like water when applied? We’ll take it! It also promises day-long hydration, a major plus in dry, hot weather.

  • Dermalogica Precleanse Wipes, Rs 1,750

    The brand’s Precleanse oil is absolute magic – it takes off everything from industrial-grade waterproof mascara, to dirt and grime, in an easy swipe. And now we have the formula to-go in a pack of wipes.



  • The Body Shop Vitamin E Serum-in-Oil, Rs xxx
    Just because you have oily skin, doesn’t mean you stay clear of hydrators. Use a heavier nighttime product – like this serum – so that your skin gets recharged at night, and you stay grease-free through the day.

  • Sally Hansen Triple Shine ‘Make Waves’, Rs 395

    This gold-flecked teal is inspired by sun rays playing on the sea and makes us wish we could go AWOL to a secluded beach.
