2 Of My Favorite Two-In-One Beauty Products For Summer

Two-in-one beauty products

I’m All About Two-In-One Beauty Products That Save Time + Money.

Lately, I’m likely to find myself pressed for time.  I’m talking often, and with summer being my favorite season I’m all about finding two-in-one beauty products that’ll spare me as much time to enjoy the outdoors as possible. Chicago summers are amazing, my only complaint is they come and go in the blink of an eye.

With that, I’ve found myself simplifying my daily beauty routine. Having learned years, or perhaps decades ago, the absolute secret for feeling good is looking good. For me, looking good begins with my skin looking vibrant and feeling hydrated.  Great hydration within our skin does several things. First, it helps the toxins and congestion have access to the necessary fluids to effectively release them. Secondly, when fed with proper moisture, skin cells can produce the necessary fibers to support and nourish itself.

While I’m committed to  taking the proper steps to keep my skin looking and feeling its best (which vastly differs from week to week), I’ve learned to appreciate the value of less is more. Chicago’s weather has been challenging for all my routines but my skin has been more cranky than ever.  With that, I’m loving the trend of dual-purpose tools that double your beauty pleasure while cutting time.  On top of both their precise functionality and cool packaging they’re made from ingredients that provide an extra dose of skin care love. In favor of minimalism, these are my keepers.


The winners of my favorite two-in-one beauty products are:


Creamy Concealer Kit Bobbi Brown

My favorite product to hide dark under eye circles is the  Creamy Concealer Kit by Bobbi Brown. The kit includes  a creamy concealer + yellowish powder duo. When I’m running on fumes, sometimes I’ll notice light purple circles under my eyes. For those sleep deprived days, I use the one with a pink base which works well to neutralize purple. What I’ve found helpful about the kit is after applying the creamy concealer you can disguise that shiny aspect with the yellowish powder that comes with it. The kit can be found most places Bobbi Brown cosmetics are sold.


The Double Duty Beauty The Eye Architect Double Ended Liner and Shadow

Mastering a stunning look with this eye 2-in-1 essential with a twist-up liner waterproof and cream shadow in a versatile tool. Ideal for on-the-go Tartelettes, the silky- blendable formulas come in a portable stick for brushless applications and are powered by Amazon clay and essential oils to help your skin condition while locking pigment in place. The sharp liners and creamy shadows are available in three shades.

Benefits I’m appreciating:



Climatologically tested

Formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, and gluten.

These are the best two-in-one beauty  products I’ve experimented this summer that’ll will be with me for a while.
