Nykaa Recommendations for Skincare, Makeup & Haircare ( Tried & Tested )

Who doesn't love to shop? I bet there will be no one, especially in the women's category. We love to shop for ourselves, our children, or even our home.

Being a content creator, over time I have tried a lot of products and I had a love & hate relationship with them.

Today I will be sharing my favorites which I have tried, loved, and repurchased. Comment below to share if you do love any of these and if you have not tried these, I urge you to.

Let's get started.


                                                hydrating gentle cleanser

This cleanser is perfect, be it the size of the tube, the subtle fragrance it has, how well it cleanses the skin, or the price of this one.

I purchased this cleanser because of the buzz around the Hyaluronic range from Loreal but my oh my, this cleanser impresses me so well.

It retails for Rs.199 & Rs.315 for 50ml & 100ml respectively. You can always try it first to see how it works for your skin.

Being a combination skin person, I was always in search of that perfect facewash that is neither too drying nor too creamy. 

And my search ended on this one from BLISCENT. This face wash is perfect for oily to combination skin people. 

This has a gel-like consistency and no fragrance at all. This cleanses the face perfectly and does not make it leaving stripped or dry.

I have finished 2 bottles of this cleanser and will absolutely repurchase again.

BLISCENT Lychee & Seabuckthorn Face Wash retails for Rs. 475 for 120ml. You can use code SHAILY10 on bliscent.com for an additional 10% off.


If you are in the search of toner which gives that extra boost of hydration, look no more, you have found your bestie.

This toner is hands down the best toner which doubles as a light layer of moisturizer too, it almost feels like you are applying milk on your skin without that stickiness.

I love to use it after my cleanser and seal it with a good moisturizer, use it at night and get the softest skin in the morning.

Laneige Cream Skin Toner & Moisturiser retails for Rs. 750 & Rs. 1850 for 50ml & 150 ml respectively.

The best part is it comes in a spray bottle too, I am going to invest in that next for sure.


Hands down the best moisturizer make skin brighter and leave it feeling hydrated without making it greasy.

I have finished 4-5 tubs of this. The best part is that this moisturizer is available in multiple sizes, if you are afraid of traveling with the glass tub, they have a travel variant too.

You can use my code SHAI10 on dotandkey.com to get an additional 10% off.

If you have oily skin, you will love this moisturizer. I received it as a PR, and oh my god, there is no stop of me from using it. 

It has a subtle fragrance. I already finished the tub that is why I don't have the picture.

This retails for RS. 665 for 40gm of product.


Rain or shine, sunscreen is a must. And what better than sunscreen with some coverage. This sunscreen gives a matte finish while giving a bit of coverage making it perfect for those no-makeup days.

I love a good tinted sunscreen so that I don't have to touch it up. And since it is SPF 50, no need to worry.

MyGlamm Popxo Selfie Ready Tinted Sunscreen SPF 50 retails for Rs. 499 for 30gm.



I first tried this product almost 6 months back when the brand was such a rage as it was newly launched in the market.

I went ahead and purchased a few products from the website, the products from MARS COSMETICS are super affordable. This BB cream retails for Rs. 249 and is mostly available at discounts.

I am in love with it from the first time, this gives such a dewy finish. Is super lightweight, and blends seamlessly giving a natural coverage. 

I recently repurchased it, and my shade is 04 TAN.


I was super afraid as to whether I should spend my money on this or not, but believe me, this is one of the best decisions of mine. I have heard mixed reviews about this.

And due to the speculation, I purchased the mini of this. This foundation gives a naturally dewy finish. Leaves such a freshness on the face without making it look cakey or greasy. 

The best part is it lasts for good 4-5 hours on my combination skin.

The mini retails for Rs.1750 for 15ml and the bigger one retails for Rs.2900 for 30ml.

Been a fan of this one since the time I started doing makeup which was in 2019 when I got married. I ordered my first M.A.C. product then.

Since then I am in love with this one, but somehow I stopped using this. Now, I have repurchased it again a few months back & my love for this is just flustered all over again.

This can be used as a makeup fixing spray or you prep your face before makeup, works amazing both ways.

This comes in 3 sizes, 13ml, 30ml & 100ml, and retails for Rs.750, Rs.1300,1950 respectively. You can buy the mini and try it. I will definitely buy it all over again.



Purchased the mini of this one just to try to see what the hype is all about and I cannot stop using it since then.  

A few days back only I repurchased the bigger bottle and I will repurchase this again and again.

It has a non-oily thick consistency which gives an amazing shine and softness to the hair. Two drops, that's it for my medium-length hair.

It is available in two sizes, 30ml & 100ml which retail for Rs.299 & Rs.599 respectively. These are available mostly at discounts.


I have heard a lot about this one from other creator friends but never got a chance to try it until the brand sends this in PR.

So I gave this a try and OMG I absolutely loved it. I had an itchy scalp mainly in monsoons. the problem increased when I shifted to a different city and there was a hard water problem.

I gave this one a try and it relieved me from that irritating itch in the first wash itself. I am so going to buy this again.  

It retails for Rs.650 but is always available at discounts. You can use my code SHAILY15 on plumgoodness.com to avail extra 10% discount.


There is this trend of not using sulfates in shampoos for a long time, and I am a culprit of the same too.

I too have stopped using sulfates in the shampoo for I feel like more than a year, but recently I noticed that whenever I scratch my head, even accidentally, there is some amount of gunk there, it's not dandruff for sure.

Then I invested in this scalp massager and this is such a game changer. This helps in removing the buildup while giving a nice massage to the scalp, feels so therapeutic too.

This is always 50% off on nykaa.com, Buy it from here.


I have used the shampoo from the same range and I finished the 580ml bottle completely. I loved it, the best affordable shampoo. This intrigued me to try the hair mask as well.

My friend was selling this one so I purchased it, and this is it. This gives you a spa-like experience and leaves hair smooth, silky, shiny, soft, and whatnot. 

This retails for Rs.600 but is always on discount. Definitely give this one a try.

That is all on my list of tried and tested favorites from Nykaa. Will keep exploring and finding new gems for you.
