Are you a multi-tasking minx?

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 27 - 2010

I don’t get much time to spend on my ‘beauty’ routine, not half as much as I’d like… so any product that promises to multi-task captures my attention quickly!


Davines Authentic Nourishing Oil (£29.20/140ml) is designed to be used on face, hair and body.  A truly multi-tasking masterpiece?  Formulated with 100% natural ingredients, these include organic Carthame Oil, Jojoba, Sunflower and Sesame oils.

They say:

After a shower, while your skin is still wet, massage on your body, face and décolleté. (For additional moisturising power, add a few drops to your face and body cream at night, when your skin is repairing itself).  Smooth a few drops through the ends of the hair to get rid of split ends and don’t forget your hands – they must be protected against the external aggressors.  Massage your hands and cuticles daily.

I already use a body oil which I apply to damp skin – but I’m a total sucker for oils and I can’t stop adding to my collection.  At £29.20, the Davines Authentic Nourishing Oil is a little more than I’d like to pay… although 140ml would last a very long time.

What are your favourite multi-tasking products?

    I love baby oil, olive oil, and cold cream as multi-tasking items :)

  2. I love cream products that you can use on cheeks/lips eyes/cheeks, etc. Super easy to just swipe and go. And since they are creams, you can easily apply with fingers.

  3. i’m ashamed to say i don’t use any =/

    though, i’ve been intrigued by argan oil and if i decide to purchase one, that will be my 1st ever multi-tasking product.

    I’m a definite multi-tasking type of gal. I like NARS multiples since they can be used on cheeks, eyes, and lips.

    Looks like a good oil, always find that when I apply oil after shower/bath, I am standing around in a “am I still to damp? perhaps I should wait a bit, damn I’m too dry now” haze of confusion and never get the benefit of them – used to love Neutrogena Sesame Seed oil though about 100yrs ago!
