Over the years, multi-purpose products have become widely used because they’re so convenient.
“Three-in-1 men’s products are growing more popular as on-the-go options for the gym and for travel. One product for three purposes saves a lot of space in your bathroom, travel bag and gym bag,” Ntsiki Khumalo, a skin educator at Sorbet beauty salon, told DESTINY MAN in a previous interview.
Khumalo says that 3-in-1 products for men aren’t made in the same way as regular products.
“The products are formulated with ingredients that respect the skin’s pH level, and cleans hair without stripping it of moisture. These products can be as effective as individual products,” she says.
“It’s difficult to say if consumers should be cautious, because as with any product, feedback will vary from person to person. But they’re formulated to work on three areas, so the choice of ingredients work together to complement both hair and skin.”
Here are four products to try out:
Fine Shave and Beard Oil
A shaving oil is often found in a gent’s bathroom, but beard oil? Not so much. Many guys underestimate the importance of investing in such an oil for a healthy-looking, clean beard.
At least with Fine Shave and Beard Oil, you don’t need to worry about buying both products because it’s been formulated to play the role of both. Shaving oil helps you see where you’re shaving because it doesn’t foam, meaning you get a better, closer shave.
Long Market Barber Shave and Body Soap
Over the years, men have transitioned to using cleansers, but many still prefer the feel of a bar of soap. The Long Market Barber Shave and Body Soap is a dual-purpose product that you can use for shaving or as a body soap. Bonus: it smells great!
Six Man Shave and Face Wash
This proudly South African brand launched its men’s range only six months ago, and Six Man Shave and Face Wash is part of the collection. This is convenient because you can deal with your facial needs with only one product. The active ingredients include aloe barbadensis leaf extract and nettle, which both have anti-inflammatory and healing properties.
Crabtree & Evelyn Hair and Body Wash
This luxuriously convenient product offers generous lather for both hair and skin.
