I love to multitask, and I love my products to multitask right along with me. Finding a product that you love and serves more than one purpose means less money spent, less clutter in your medicine cabinet, a faster morning routine and a more relaxing morning in general.
Hair & Body Cleansing
For Women, Philosophy’s Shampoo, Bath and Shower Gel ($22) comes in lots of delicious fragrances and is formulated with nourishing milk proteins, so it calms even the most sensitive skin and nourishes the driest hair. My favorite is the Amazing Grace.
For Men, the Suave 3-in-1 for Men ($4.95) is a gentle cleansing formula enriched with keratin amino acids and glycerin. It gently cleans and conditions hair and cleanses your face and body. They make a similar formula for kids that comes in several fun scents.
Hair Cleansing & Conditioning
I had a chance to try the WEN hair care products a few months ago when I was working on another story, and I fell in love with the WEN Cleansing Conditioner ($28). This amazing, detergent-free product cleanses and conditions the hair in one step, which is great if time is tight in the morning. And after rinsing, you can apply a few pumps as a leave-in conditioner. Available in five scents/formulations.
Enriched with nourishing oils of sweet almond, sunflower and meadowfoam, the all-purpose Air Repair Rescue Balm ($12) helps to prevent trans-epidermal water loss, a primary cause of dry skin. Try it on cuticles, lips, elbows, feet or other parched areas. Packaged in a handy tube.
If you prefer a creamy texture, try the yummy pomegranate-scented Whish Body Butter ($7). It can be used all over the body, as a foot treatment, a hand cream, face cream and even an eye-makeup remover.
Then there’s the Scandle Body Candle ($20.95-$22.95). The candle burns at 2 degrees above body temperature and also functions as a massage oil, cuticle treatment and even a daily body moisturizer for those of us with dry skin. It’s packaged in refillable canisters, available in lots of yummy fragrances and it’s made from 100% natural ingredients. In September, the Scandle Candle will be available with shimmer, which will offer the added benefits of masking skin imperfections and wrinkles by diffusing light.
