Everything is multi-purpose these days – smart phones, kitchen appliances…there are even toilets with heated seats! Why not indulge in beauty products with as many functions? Anything to give you a few more minutes to spend time with your family and friends, or god forbid – sleep – is worth considering. And these beauty buys are no compromise. You get the best look at the most economical price. See which timesavers worth adding to your morning routine…
Clé de Peau Beauté Extra Rich Lipstick: Before you freak out at the cost, it’s important to consider that this is more than just a lipstick – it’s formulated with retinol, which fills in those little wrinkles and prevents more from cropping up (hey, it’s cheaper than collagen!). If you love it, refills are only $40. At Nordstrom for $60.
By Terry Terrybly Mascara: Besides being one of the best non-clumping mascaras, this also promises lash growth. I can’t say I’ve noticed longer lashes in the couple of months I’ve used it, but I can say that they haven’t fallen out as much (I notice the sad loss of each and every single one since I’m currently in lash extension rehab). At Bloomingdale’s for $47.
Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge Anti-Aging Complexe Tinted Treatment: Have a lot of late nights? This is my secret to glowing skin. It provides sheer coverage, SPF to protect, and retinol to smooth wrinkles. At Neiman Marcus for $125.
Moor Balm: There’s nothing better to apply after a day at the beach or on the slopes than this face/body balm. It soothes chapped, windburned, and sunburned skin using peat water from the famous Neydharting Moor in Austria. On BeautySage for $125.
Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath: This is the original multi-functional product. I’m not normally a fan of smelling like food, but when the scent is this yummy, I can’t resist! I keep these in guest bedrooms in case anyone wants a deliciously aromatic bubble bath. At Sephora for $16.50.
