7 beauty items to pamper yourself with this month
Our beauty editor picks out the best of the best
Every once in a while, we allow ourselves to fantasize about a parallel universe where we can indulge in as many luxury beauty treatments without worrying about making deadlines and staying awake during meetings. But since scientists have not discovered a glitch in the space-time continuum (yet) and travelling to said parallel universe is not an option, you can try our picks of the best beauty products your kit needs this month while we work on the ‘worrying about meetings bit’.
ELLE’s Beauty Editor’s pick of the month:
Chanel Huile de Jasmin,
price on request.
Coco Chanel knew a thing or 20 about luxury, so it’s no surprise that she spiked her face oil with handpicked jasmines from Grasse. This updated version also blends camellia and jojoba oil to brighten up your skin tone.
Clinique Fresh Pressed Daily Booster, Rs 2,000
Think of this pure vitamin C serum as essential skin food. Mix two drops with your moisturiser to recharge your skin tone and repair age spots.
MoroccanOil Dry Body Oil, Rs 4,500
This summer, upgrade your body lotion with this antioxidant-rich blend of argan, avocado and olive oil. It gives intense hydration without the greasy mess.
Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Misteriosa, Rs 5,600/50ml EDT
The blackberry, patchouli and black vanilla mousse accords in this fragrance smell just as tasty as a creamy berry pie.
Tresemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Conditioner, Rs 204/90ml
Let’s face it, DIY hair masks are cumbersome. Luckily, you can now rely on this conditioner to nourish and strengthen your mane with the goodness of olive
and camellia oil.
Nykaa Paintstix, Rs 425
This set of lipsticks will cure you of the season’s matte obsession (even if for a minute). Their colours are just as punchy and the creamy formula ensures you don’t have to deal with chapped lips later.
Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation, Rs 3,650
After hearing a bazillion claims about second-to-skin foundations, here’s one that lives up to the hype. It also moisturises and protects, while smoothening your complexion.
