Back to Work Multi-Tasking Beauty Products


For many of us, February sees a return to the office, even for a few days a week. For those of us who have worked from home for most of 2020, we’ve been spoilt with a lack of commute time meaning we could sleep in, or exercise more. With a return to the office, the commute is back on, making our morning time very precious. With this in mind, we’ve put together a list of our 5 favourite tried and tested multi-tasking beauty products designed to save you time in the morning, while still having you look stylish and gorgeous at work.

Olay Vitamin C Scrubs



Keeping your skin clean, hydrated and refreshed has never been easier with the Olay Vitamin C Scrubs. The scrubs, available in 3 variants, Hydrating Australian Caviar Lime, Detoxifying Charcoal, and Pore-Perfecting Dragonfruit (my personal favourite), are infused with Vitamin C, to help reduce visible damage and uneven skin tone. Providing 5-in-1 benefits, including brightening, cleansing, exfoliating, removing excess oil, and refreshing,  the fine Hydrated Silica crystals in the scrubs break down after one minute of cleansing to gently exfoliate and prevent over-scrubbing – how’s that for clever! Time and money saving in one. Olay Vitamin C Scrubs 125ml RRP $18.99 each.


Nivea Sun UV Face BB Cream SPF50+



Summer calls for a lighter foundation product, yet we still need to protect our skin against the sun’s rays whenever we are outside, with a high SPF product. We love the tinted Nivea Sun UV Face BB Cream SPF50+, which gives your face a light, sheer coverage, with the added benefit of protection against UVA and UVB rays. The clever tint blends into most skin tones, and cover minor blemishes in a light, non-greasy formula, that leaves skin looking fresh and dewy. We have a tube in the bathroom, and one in our hand bag, we love it so much. Nivea Sun UV Face BB Cream SPF50+ 50ml RRP $12.99.


Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge Lip/Cheek Cream



This is one of our favourite makeup products (and as it’s one of Bobbi Brown’s best sellers, it seems we’re not alone). This multi-tasking, time saving cream for lips and cheeks comes in a mirrored flip-top compact for on-the-spot application at home or throughout the day. The cream provides a just-pinched hint of colour for cheeks, and a soft stained finish for lips – if you like more colour, build with a second layer. The Pot Rouge comes in 11 gorgeous shades (pictured here is Rose), so you can switch colours between Summer and Winter. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge Lip/Cheek Cream 3.8ml RRP $54.00.

Palmers Natural Bronze Coconut Oil Gradual Tanning Moisturiser



Keep your skin soft, dewy and hydrated, and develop or maintain a natural tan at the same time with the Palmers Natural Bronze Coconut Oil Gradual Tanning Moisturiser. The deeply hydrating body lotion uses a skin-friendly natural & vegetable based tanning ingredient to give your skin a truly natural tan all year round & with a creamy, summery coconut scent. The lightweight, non-streaking gradual tanner gives skin a natural looking sun-kissed bronze colour, without damaging sun exposure – I love this as a Summer moisturiser, and for Winter when I play sport too. Palmers Natural Bronze Coconut Oil Gradual Tanning Moisturiser 250ml RRP $10.49. Also available in 400ml size.


Natio for Men SPF 50+ Face Moisturiser



We haven’t forgotten our men returning to the office either. It can be hard to get men to take care of their skin, and any product that performs double duty is a winner for us. My husband loves (which means I do to), the Natio for Men SPF 50+ Face Moisturiser, with its non-greasy, quick-drying formulation which delivers clean-feeling, comfortable wear all day long, leaving skin feeling soft, hydrated, and nourished. Formulated with powerful plant nutrients, the addition of SPF 50+ sun protection means this effective broad spectrum UVA/UVB double-duty lotion helps defend skin against both sun damage and visible signs of ageing when out and about. Skincare and powerful suncare in 1 – yes please. Natio for Men SPF 50+ Face Moisturiser 100g RRP $17.95.
