Many women believe that good skin care is pricey, especially when it involves organic ingredients and formulations that are free of harmful chemicals. While it is true that certain products tend to be expensive, not everything that gives you results bears a high price tag. We’ve put together a list of herbal and botanical skincare products that work wonders on the skin without burning a hole in the pocket. Even better – they’re all under Rs.500, so you don’t have to worry about overshooting budgets or expenses

What’s better – the formulation is free of paraben and is suitable for all skin types.
