There’s nothing we love more than a hard-working beauty product. Versatile makeup and skin care essentials truly make life easier, leaving more space in your beauty bag (and budget) for luxury hair and beauty investments.

Not to mention that the beauty industry is the biggest global contributor to plastic waste… So it’s good to cull your products and opt for a sustainable beauty routine where you can.

But that doesn’t mean you have to skimp on quality or pay-off. There are plenty of multi-use beauty products that go above and beyond when it comes to performance.

Here, we’ve rounded up the best multitasking products to add to your collection.

  1. Really love Weleda Skin Food so many great Products to try. At the moment I am using a Lip Scrub and using lots of Burt’s Bees Lip Shine makes my Lips feel so moist instead of dry and chapped with Winter.

  2. I haven’t really purchased multi use products per se but I do try and use a product for other purposes when it doesn’t suit the original need. for example, if a facial moisturiser breaks me out I’ll use it as a hand cream, I’ve used a bronzer as a contourer.

  3. DermalMD Lightening Serum saved my face. I have battled acne for a long time and I had severe hyper pigmentation especially on my cheeks. I had dark spots and I would never leave the house without make up. This serum can be quite irritating in the beginning or for people with sensitive face. My face broke out with tiny rashes just after the first application. It was darker than normal and towards the end of the week, my face started peeling. Within the second week, my face was softer, brighter and the dark spots started lightening. I used this product day and night and applied a serum afterwards. Always use a good moisturizer and a sunscreen and limit your sun exposure. My face is not completely spot free but it is much better. I do not need to wear make up to cover anything.
