“For the on-the-go busy roles we play in our lives, skincare should not be confusing and stress inducing,” says Shamika Haldipurkar, founder of D’You. Hands up if you agree! With the brand’s maiden product, Hustle, Haldipurkar struck gold, testing and re-testing a formula that now brings together 11 active ingredients into one power-packed serum, which also works as a hydrating toner and essence. This superstar can be used during the day or every night, and even makes a great primer under makeup. What’s not to love?
