A fellow beauty publicist recently asked me what my favorite products are, assuming that I have a slew of serums, shadows, lotions and skincare potions at my disposal. While she was right, I do get to learn about, try and test tons of great products, I’m just not a beauty junkie. In fact, I actually have a confession to make—I hate washing my face, let alone following steps and applying the correct product to each specific area in the correct order. I know, I know, I should be ashamed to even post this on a beauty blog. Truth be told, my favorite beauty products are face wipes… a lazy girl’s best beauty buddy.
Multitasking products are another great addition your skin care routine. They cut down on products and basically allow you to exert as little effort as possible. Below are a few items that perform double, or even triple, duty!
- Jemma Kidd’s Cleansing Wipes actually have residence on my bedside table. The antioxidant-rich facial cleansing wipes are so easy to use! They are ultra soft and effectively remove makeup and dirt, while toning the skin and cleansing.
- A moisturizer with spf provides daily sunscreen doses and also replenishes and provides the skin with essential nutrients- if you can find one with a tint, such as Dermalogica’s Sheer Tint Moisture with SPF 15, then you even cut out a makeup step!
- Pevonia Botanica’s Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser gently exfoliates and thoroughly eliminates dead cells, sebum, toxins and impurities without being too abrasive.
- A colleague of mine and all around beauty buff, swears by iQ Derma’s Clear Remedy Purifying Cleanser, insisting that it cleanses, removes all her makeup and is specially formulated to help prevent breakouts.
