Greetings fellow mortals (that are subject to consistent buyer’s remorse). Before your wallet decides to order a casket, let’s get down to business, shall we? We know how tempting it is to subscribe to the theory that expensive = the best. We often surrender ourselves to tall promises plastered on delicious jars and bottles, which as we know, leads to a beefy bill. You’re not alone. It happens to the best of us.

Well, the good news is that you don’t need to sell your soul to look or feel good anymore. Despite what wise marketing may have led us to believe, the truth is that good skin and hair doesn’t necessarily come with a high price tag. Just good research. Speaking of research, this week we committed to a thorough R&D to give you hardworking products that are not going to leave a cavity in your savings. Ahead, our definitive list of the best beauty products for your skin and hair that retail for Rs.500 and below. Ladies, welcome to smart buying. Products that can send post-decision dissonance on a leave of absence.

No one wants to surface from crouching over the sink with skin that feels stripped. This easy-on-the-pocket cleanser by Dermafique transforms that task from drudgery to a treat. For starters, this glassy aqua elixir will instantly dress up your bathroom cabinet. Coming to why it made the cut, this oil-free, paraben-free cleansing mousse is loved by both dermatologists and owners of sensitive, cranky skin. From a brand that strongly believes the essence of healthy skin being built cell by cell, this product disrupts biofilms caused by acne causing bacteria, unclogs pores and cleans out excess sebum.

2. Indulekha Bringha Hair Oil

Costs you: ₹234

Way before the birth of the digitally-connected world, Sundays were spent indoors spending quality time with our grandmothers while they oil our hair (along with engaging storytelling and tales). While times have changed, traditions need not. Click rewind with this exceptional Bringha hair oil by Indhulekha. This formula marries ingredients like Bringhraj, Svetakutaja, Coconut oil and Amla that’re tailor-made to combat hair fall, promote hair growth, and improve the health of your scalp. Religiously use it twice a week for luscious, shiny hair (think Parveen Babi). Live alone? Fret not. This clinically-tested ayurvedic oil comes in a selfie-like bottle with multiple nozzles for easy self service.

For the record, you don’t need to be asleep to use this mask. It looks and feels lovely applied under or over your lipstick too.

5. Bio Oil Skin Care Oil

Costs you: ₹360

This list would be incomplete without throwing in this classic. No introduction required for this international hero that’s led by brothers Justin and David Letschert. They’ve really thought through their magic potion. This multipurpose, salmon-hued beauty oil instantly rose to fame. It’s known to tackle dark spots, acne scars and stretch marks at an exceptionally low price. Souped up with Vitamin E, Chamomile oil and the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil, this formula is designed to aid severely hydrated skin and promote cell renewal. With this cool (pun intended) over-the-counter bottle, you won’t be tempted to use an Instagram filter. Also, this skin giant is known to be a favorite at the kardashian-Jenner household too. Bible.

Coming to the end of this edit, I do have a confession to make. Over the past few months, I have tried-and-tested each and every recommendation listed above. I’ve used them so diligently that they’ve depleted faster than a bag of onion pakodas (guilty as charged). With that being said, I certainly hope that these potent yet pocket-friendly products make your day a little better and work its magic on you, like it did on me. While times have changed and the days get longer, one thing’s for sure. With this list, there’s lesser chances that you’re betting on the wrong horse. However, we’d love to know how this turns out for you. You asked. We delivered. Or did we? You tell us.
