3rd Best Choice

Avene Micellar Lotion Cleanser

Being a beauty enthusiast isn’t the most relaxing thing to do as I’m constantly on the hunt for a formula that simplifies my skincare regime. I have a gazillion of products sitting on my dressing table waiting for me to try them out but little time is what I have. An array of facial cream jars unopened, face masks that have far passed their expiry dates, and not to mention the beauty tools I bought just to hop on Instagram and TikTok’s bandwagon, but left unused. 

In reality, nobody has time for an 18-steps-skincare-routine fussiness, rather, I see it as a scam created by celebrities and beauty gurus. Though, we still appreciate products that function well and are gentle enough on our skin. What we all need is a multi purpose skin care product that is so versatile that it can do it all! 

I’m sure we all need at least one of them. Ahead, Beauty Signal Lab rounds up some of the best multifunctional beauty products you should invest your money in, right now.
