Multi-purpose beauty products. I have to admit I’ve never really understood their appeal until I started travelling interstate for overnight business trips, and hitting the gym before work. I know when I travel I need to pack a cleanser, moisturiser, eye cream, serum, shaving cream and not to mention hair products, body wash and that’s being conservative. Same goes for the gym in the morning before work. I recently discovered Molton Brown 4-in-1 Sportswash, which has now become a grooming staple in my gym bag and overnight bag on business trips.
Product name: Molton Brown 4-in-1 Sportswash
What it does: This multi-purpose gel provides top to toe grooming. It acts as a cleanser, body wash, shampoo and shaving gel. Formulated with cassia bark and lime to deodorise the body, skin conditioners to moisturise the face and guar gum to help soften stubble for a closer shave, this portable gel replaces up to four products.
Results: I tested this product for each of its purposes, and these were my findings:
- Body: skin felt clean and moisturized. The gel’s energizing scent refreshes while awakening the senses
- Face: when used as a cleanser my skin felt soft without any tightening afterwards
- Hair: removes hair products quickly and leaves hair smelling fresh and feeling smooth
- Shave Gel: works up a good lather and allows razor to glide smoothly along the skin
How to use: For hair, face and body washing, lather up between wet palms for 15 seconds, massage across damp skin and into the hair, then rinse. For shaving, lather up for a little longer before massaging onto damp stubble, then shave and rinse with warm water.
Skin Types: Recommended for all skin types
Where to buy: Molton Brown 4-in- Sportswash is available from the Molton Brown store in the QVB Building, Sydney, David Jones department stores and online.
