With work, family, friends, and all the commitments in between, our beauty routines need to be as hardworking as we are in order to keep up with our hectic schedules. Let’s face it, no one has time to apply 20+ products every morning, despite what the YouTube tutorials suggest. Us go-getters need multi-purpose products that are time-saving and economically efficient too. And so, we’ve rounded up the best multi-tasking hair and beauty products on the market that you can rely on.
Whether you’re looking for a moisturiser that doubles up as a primer or a hair dryer that hosts a natural heat protectant, keep scrolling to reveal our top multi-use beauty products that are worth the investment. You won’t be disappointed.
Protect your hair from excess heat damage while drying your locks in lightning speed, leaving you with a smooth and shiny finish in minutes. Its unique air multiplier technology projects a powerful jet of air for fast drying, and specially-engineered attachments concentrate the airflow for simultaneous styling.
Use this hydrating mask to prep your skin for an upcoming event or to soothe post-party exhaustion, the nourishing properties will inject the skin with calming extracts that promise to leave the skin looking brighter.
If you are on the hunt for a luxury beauty cream with multiple benefits, then Crème de la Mer will always come to mind. It has an iconic status for a reason, boasting the ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, minimise the look of pores and not to mention soothe, soften and moisturise skin like no other.
This warm-toned bronzer from Urban Decay doesn’t need to be confined solely to your cheeks. Try applying this bronzer to your cheekbones and sweeping across your eye socket to create a natural sun-kissed glow all over.
Do you suffer from oily or spot-prone skin? This moisturiser not only combats breakouts but also doubles up as a primer for oily/combination skin, keeping the shine at bay throughout the day.
Use this Wonderglow primer underneath your favourite foundation to keep your makeup in place all day while giving your skin that healthy glow we all crave. Alternatively, if you feel like a slightly lighter coverage, use this alone to illuminate your natural base.
After your cleansing routine, apply this as a toner to eliminate excess oil or saturate a cotton pad and apply directly to the problem area to shrink any troublesome breakouts by morning.
This all-in-one balm is one to keep on you at all times. Its natural soothing properties will cure extremely chapped lips, keep unruly eyebrows in place and is good for your cuticles.
Apply this dry oil to your skin to maintain a healthy hydrated glow, give your hair ends a moisture hit or even use it to help tame any frizzy flyaways. Plus, it smells divine.
Keep this lipstick in your bag to add a splash of colour to your lips throughout the day or use a pea-sized amount on the apples of your cheeks to create an effortless sheen.
This gradual tan is great for adding a subtle glow to washed out skin while also creating a blurring effect to mask imperfections. Apply throughout winter to fake a post-holiday sheen.
Use under the eye to camouflage any unwanted tired eyes or use as a highlighter to accentuate your brow bone and Cupid’s bow.
