Beyond elaborate packaging and exaggerated claims, the magic of the product always truly lies in the ingredients. They hold the product together for two reasons. A satisfying outcome and repeat customers. Everything from niacinamide to pure vitamin c, I’ve jotted down eight potent skin products powered with leading ingredients that are solely dedicated to target your specific problematic areas and thereby elevate the health of your skin. Below, everything you need to know.

1. MCaffeine Cappuccino Coffee Face Mask - Kills 99.9% Acne Causing Germs with Salicylic Acid & Kaolin Clay

If you have acne prone skin and fancy coffee, read this. Whipped with kaolin clay, this mask comes in a plush jelly-like texture with refreshing coffee notes that remove all the excess oil from your face. The salicylic acid present in the formula helps to weaken the acne causing bacteria to combat active breakouts. FYI, the leading caffeinated beauty personal care brand is also famous for their fantastic body scrubs and the niacinamide and hyaluronic acid sleeping mask if you want to check them out.

2. L'Oreal ParisL'Oreal Paris Revitalift 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Thanks to the birth of hyaluronic acid, consumers finally get to enjoy healthy, dewy skin faster compared to using a regular over-the-counter moisturizer. That said, only a few in the market actually deliver what this power ingredient promises. This serum by L’Oreal is certainly one of them. This satisfyingly rich product helps maintain your moisture barrier and pump up your hydration levels. It keeps the water bank in your skin intact and that’s what I appreciate most about this serum (I have very thirsty skin tbh).

3. Clinique Moisture Surge 100h Auto-replenishing Hydrator

Let’s take a moment to talk about this cult formula.  First of all, if you haven't owned one of these tubs yet—well, it’s high time you do (because it’s that good). The strong harmony of activated aloe water and hyaluronic acid present in this gel-like cream is popularly known to hold up to thousand times its weight in water.  The green tea leaf extracts helps calm the skin, keeping it moisturized and plump. My tub is almost over.

4. Olay Night Serum: Regenerist Retinol 24 Serum

Designed by the global skincare giant, this retinol serum delivers significant results sans the side effects. To be specific, it promotes radiant, healthy skin with a rich bonus of hydration from the niacinamide present in the formula (that also helps in firming your skin). It also promises to rejuvenate and penetrate your skin ten layers deep to provide all the love your skin deserves. I tried it last month, it works legit.

5. The Derma Co. 2% Salicylic Acid Face Serum For Active Acne

The great thing about this face serum is that the salicylic acid added in this elixir works as a powerful pore clarifying agent—also working really hard on clearing all the sebum that creates a breeding ground for breakouts. The witch hazel and willow bark comes in to soothe your skin and to mainly avoid moisture loss.

6. Plum 15% Vitamin C Face Serum with Mandarin for Glowing Skin with Pure Ethyl Ascorbic Acid

This vegan serum by Plum is quite honestly reliable if you’re on the hunt for glowing skin (aren’t we all?). The brand claims that 83% of users noticed a lush glow in just two weeks. Thanks to the ethyl ascorbic acid (a water soluble derived from Vitamin C) in this serum, this wonder formula penetrates right into your skin almost instantly and sticks around longer without oxidising.

7. PIXI Collagen & Retinol Serum

We thanked the stars in harmony when PIXI launched on Nykaa. However, I want to take a quick minute to highlight the brand’s mission—to simply bring out the natural beauty in all women and to ensure they look like themselves, only better!. Rightfully so, this collagen and retinol serum curated specifically from their glow-giving solutions help soothe fine lines, help restore the skin's natural glow and elasticity. Plus, look at that packaging—will you?

8. Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop - Pure Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C is having a moment right and for all the right reasons. Now, when Klairs drops a freshly juiced vitamin drop serum, you buy it before it runs out. Made with pure vitamin c serum, this multi-solution formula comes with impressive anti-aging properties that also take care of uneven skin tone and severe dullness. Oh, it also contains the goodness of broccoli and yuzu extracts  with zero fragrance (which I personally love).
