Five of the Best Multi-Purpose Products

 

Trilogy Everything Balm, from £10.42 for 40ml
This gorgeous balm is everything that you want from jelly-like moisturiser without the harsh chemicals. Made with a blend of Certified Organic marula oil and rosehip oil, along with a big dose of jojoba, olive and avocado oils, this non-greasy formulation can be used all over the face and body to keep skin supple and hydrated.

Top Tip: Use on the tips of the hair as a quick fix split end tamer.
La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Skin Recovery Accelerator, £13.00 for 40ml
This wonder product has been building up an underground cult following in recent years. The multi-purpose skin reconstructor is formulated to speed up the healing time of broken skin, dry patches, and irritation with its copper-rich formulation that stimulates the production of new cells. Think of it as a liquid plaster!

Top Tip: This lightweight, silicone gel is also much loved for its capabilities as an excellent makeup primer.

 
Tigi Catwalk Cream, £7.75 for 150ml
Before starting any hairstyle, reach for this multi-purpose hair primer. Not only does it deeply condition the hair and smooth the cuticle with shea butter, argan oil and keratin, but it also thickens strands and adds essential body. Get subtle texture and added style retention with this wonder product.

Top Tip: Add a little to wet hair before blowdrying to get ideal second day hair without the need for lots of different products.

 
Fudge Daily Mint Hair & Body Shampoo, £8.37 for 200ml
This all-purpose wash is truly universal: it’s for both boys and girls, dry skin types and oily skin types, hair and body. The moisturising wash leaves skin feeling tingly, soft and supple, and the rich lather makes hair super shiny and softly scented. The combination of peppermint and menthol really clears a foggy head!

Top Tip: This crazily invigorating shampoo is an ideal early morning pep talk for your mind and your body. Shower with this in the AM and you’ll be set for the day.
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil Spray, £26.40 for 100ml
This is a celebrity favourite – and for good reason! The 30% concentration of fine plant oils penetrates the skin for essential hydration without leaving greasy residue, while added vitamin E conditions your skin wonderfully. It can be used on the face, on the body, and in the hair for softness and moisture, and the dry-to-the-touch finish is the icing on the cake.

Top Tip: Make like you’re in St Tropez with the Nuxe Prodigieuse Or Golden Dry Oil Splash with its added mother of pearl shimmer.
