An All-in-One Serum, Plus 3 Other Excellent Multi-Use Skincare Products

dermalist all-serum reviewdermalist all-serum review

If we've learnt anything over the last year, it's that being busy, busy, busy isn't always a good thing. That there are times when it's important for your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing to sloooooow down.

Getting ready in the mornings (or evenings if you've got kids who rob you of your night time skincare routine) ain't one of them.

Time is money when it comes to skin care, which is why we're always stoked to find products that make life easier by cutting out unnecessary steps and replacing multiple products to save you time (and money!!).

So, keep scrolling for four of our current favourite multi-use skincare products.

1. Skin Virtue Future Advanced Serumist.

What: Skin Virtue Future Advanced Serumist 150ml

Why it's so great:

Yes, you read correctly. We are indeed talking about an active anti-ageing serum, in a mist. Hence, serum-ist.

Think of this serum mist hybrid as a hydrating, plumping serum that can also replace your existing toner or mist product to prep the skin for other skincare products.

The main ingredients? Well, there's 16 active ingredients, including sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid) and panthenol (vitamin B5) to hydrate and plump the skin texture, clarifying niacinamide (vitamin B3) to reduce inflammation and the appearance of pores, soothing botanical extracts and antioxidant complexes to protect against environmental aggressors.

Used throughout the day or on cleansed skin before applying other skincare products, this mist is as hardworking as it is refreshing. Genius.

2. Dermalist AllSerum Skin Perfector.

What: Dermalist AllSerum Skin Perfector 30ml

Why it's so great:

Serums are lovely, but wouldn't it be brilliant if there was a single all-in-one product that did everyth- introducing, Dermalist's 'all serum'.

This serum gets its name because it's literally an all-in-one serum designed to replace all your other hydrating serums, exfoliating serums, anti-ageing serums and pigmentation serums.

It contains 15 active ingredients (not a typo), including several peptides, niacinamide or vitamin B3, panthenol or vitamin B5, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, squalane and vitamin E. Together, these ingredients have been formulated in one surprisingly affordable tube to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and pores, hydrate the skin, boost radiance, protect against free radical damage and control breakouts and inflammation. Phew, that's a lot.

Be warned: This is a fairly hardcore serum, so start slow by applying in the evening once or twice a week, and follow with a simple moisturiser.

3. Alpha-H Micro Super Scrub with 12% Glycolic Acid.

What: Alpha-H Micro Super Scrub

Why it's so great:

Of course, we love all our skincare products equally... but the ones you can use on your face and body are pretty handy.

This one's a micro scrub that uses physical and chemical exfoliation to gently buff away dead skin cells causing the skin on your face (or the back of your arms, or even your back or backs of thighs) to look congested, dull or bumpy.

How? With 12 per cent glycolic acid - a beloved AHA or alpha hydroxy acid - to renew skin texture and tone, biodegradable bamboo stem extract for gentle manual exfoliation, and caffeine, cooling cucumber and refreshing peppermint extracts for that fresh feeling.

This one handy tube is excellent if you're off somewhere and need to pack light - or already have an over-crowded shower caddy. Oh, and it's a winner for treating keratosis pilaris aka chicken skin, too!

4. Lady Suite Rejuvenating Botanical Oil.

What: Lady Suite Rejuvenating Botanical Oil for the Glow Below 30ml

Why it's so great:

OK, hear us out - this is a hydrating oil with the primary job of moisturising your vulva. But it's also... a really great hydrating oil.

Formulated to effectively prevent ingrown hairs, sooth and prevent razor burn, and moisturise the skin around your vulva and pubic region, this vegan, fragrance-free product is gentle enough to moonlight as a non-irritating body oil, a massage oil that won't sting any of your bits, a cuticle oil and even a face oil.

The texture is light - not greasy - and packed with organic jojoba oil, carrot seed oil and evening primrose oils, among others. The bottle is just really pretty, too.
