Taking time to carefully choose products that you love, that are good for your skin and hair, and that can be used in multiple ways can save you time and money, and cut down on packaging. Plus, it makes for light and easy summer packing!
Fortunately, there are tons of effective and earth-friendly products out there that are brilliant at doing double or even triple duty. Here are just a few multi-use products that we love:
Rosewater & Glycerin Hydrating Facial Mist
This is what’s been missing from our skincare routines! Heritage Store’s Rosewater & Glycerin Facial Mist instantly hydrates the skin, and with every use, boosts that all-important barrier function. Think of all those moments after you leave the house when your skin just needs a little refresh: late afternoon, after a flight, after a workout.
A luxurious facial mist like this can be applied after cleansing for deeper, all-day hydration—and it’s brilliant at setting your makeup in the morning.
Last, if you use a heavier moisture cream at night and it’s the perfect texture in winter but too thick for the warmer months, add a spritz or two of Rosewater & Glycerin to your fingertips to make your cream lighter (and last longer)!
Bronzers give the skin that coveted sun-kissed glow—and natural blends can extend that beachy look beyond your cheeks and forehead. Good bronzers also make fantastic eyeshadows, bringing warmth and depth to your crease. Need a lip colour on the fly? Add a dash of bronzer pigment to your lip balm for a rich neutral shade.
Facial oils are incredible nourishers, and those that use some of the most beneficial ingredients bring lasting suppleness and radiance. Ellie Bianca’s line of facial oils glide on smoothly and hydrate deeply, giving your skin a bright, healthy canvas for the day.
In your daily routine, for best results, use face oils as a second-last step—just before applying a moisture cream that locks in all those powerhouse antioxidants.
Now, take the remaining oil on your palms and run through your hair to add nutrients and shine.
What else? Face oils have nothing on dry cuticles and hands, which are one of the first places to show signs of aging and sun damage. With a light, sweet fragrance (choose from rose, citrus verbena, frankincense or naked), you can always add a drop of Heritage face oil to your wrists and neck for a subtle and natural perfume.
Worried a face oil will make your skin oily? Premium, natural lines are made with the finest quality oils so they’re super absorbent and dry to a matte finish. They’re even good for oily skin!
If you’re travelling or decluttering the bathroom cabinets, this is one product worth its place.

Your favourite lipstick can bring a pop of colour to more than just your lips. Slide your blush brush gently across the side of your lipstick and apply along the top of your cheekbones for a dewy flush.
Create a bolder, monochromatic look by sweeping your eyeshadow brush across your lipstick, then gently onto your eyelids in place of an eyeshadow.
Blush is another great makeup multitasker. The Mad Hippie cream blushes are so easy to use with just your fingertips when you’re on the go. Besides adding a lovely shimmer to your cheeks, this natural blush line can be used as an eyeshadow or lipstick.
