Multi-use natural beauty products are a surefire way to preserve the planet and nurture your wallet. You’ll reduce waste, trim down your shopping list and shave minutes off your morning beauty routine. Because who really needs to spend time using lots of products when you should be on your way out the door?
It’s incredible how many uses a single product can have. Here are a few fantastic multi-use natural beauty products - keeping your routine sustainable from top to toe.
This one’s got all three of its awesome uses in its name - body, hair and face. The Sans [ceuticals] Activator 7 is a brilliant addition to any bathroom, suitable to use virtually anywhere.
It can be a potent reparative to stimulate cell repair and increase collagen production for the skin, or even a topical treatment for sunburn and eczema.
The Activator 7 also makes a great hydrating hair treatment oil, quenching dry hair to leave it silky and nourished. Bliss!
The BITE Beauty Multistick looks like a typical lipstick, but blends seamlessly onto the cheeks and eyes too. It’s breathable and easy to layer on top of other makeup (or on top of itself if one shade isn’t enough).
It’s a classy, versatile multi-use natural beauty product that helps you recreate monochrome makeup looks like a pro.
As a blush or rouge, apply colour in the direction of your cheekbone and blend normally. For eyeshadow, apply straight to the lid for a pigmented look, or with a brush or your fingers for something a little softer.
Looking for a soothing moisturiser and effective balm all rolled into one? Well, look no further than the Essence of Humanity Oneness Cream Balm.
This gorgeous balm moisturises and nourishes the skin with Melon Oil and Rooibos Extract, working wonders on chapped lips, rough elbows and scaly, dry skin.
It makes a luscious hand cream before bed or whenever you need a little extra hydration too - an absolute must for any handbag or beauty shelf!
Dewy makeup is a springtime staple and the Inika Reflecting Highlighting Creme is the perfect multi-use beauty product to perfect it with.
Use it as a highlighter for your cheekbones, brows and eyelids to make your natural features pop. The creme can also be a smooth, glowing base underneath your regular foundation or a sweep-on lip shine.
It’s non-oily and silky smooth, the perfect texture for sparkling makeup accents to suit any looks.
This sweet smelling, deliciously zingy face mask is a hydrating face mask and gentle exfoliator rolled into one.
The Stumble Across Paradise Face Mask uses native New Zealand Kanuka Honey to soothe irritation and redness while Balinese Coconut Oil helps to moisturise. Exotic Burmese Thanaka seals the deal with deep exfoliating action.
I recommend popping a jar in your bathroom for whenever your skin needs a quick and smoothing pick-me-up!
Not only is Butter London Nail Foundation a great base for shiny, lasting nail colour, it’s also a fantastic polish in its own right too.
Use a lick of this foundation on its own for a natural-toned, subtle nail look. It’s a shade that goes with just about any look or outfit and will leave your nails gleaming.
What’s more, Butter London nail polish is totally free of any toxic nasties, meaning your smooth lacquer finish will never cost you your own personal health. Just glide it onto your nails, set, and forget.
This list isn't where it ends though, experiment with makeup and cosmetics you already own and see if you can reinvent them. Most natural lipsticks work as bright eyeshadows, and if they're chemical-free most moisturisers can be used just about anywhere.
It's time to get experimenting!
