Why multi-tasking natural beauty products are just as effective for your skin

Picture the scene: you’ve overslept and you’re late for work/appointment/meeting. It’s early and you only have minutes to spare to get ready. Post shower, you raid your cabinets which are bulging with beauty products that have different purposes. You think to yourself: ‘wouldn’t it be easier if your regime was less fussy and much more pared-down?

Enter multi-use beauty products. Of course, multi-use beauty products aren’t a new phenomenon - we all know about two-in-one shampoos and conditioners. However, the beauty industry has seen a huge influx of multi-purpose products to the market.

Not only does the use of multi-purpose products save time - but it can also help save the environment. According to the Environmental Working Group, the average woman uses 9 products containing 126 unique ingredients every day in her beauty routine. More than a quarter of all women use at least 15 products daily.  If fewer products are used, that leads to less packaging being used.

Of course at Blomma Beauty, sustainability is very important. But we also understand that modern life is hectic so why use 3 products when you can use one and still achieve glowing skin. Below is a list of recommended products that have multiple uses.

Casa Mencarelli Acqua Di Miele Honey & Orange Toner
