7 Multi-Step Skin Care Products That Will Save You Time and Money

Here are the best multi-step skin care products that will allow you to pamper you skin without breaking your budget.

We know that your time is precious. Sometimes schedules get busy and your beauty routine takes a backseat. But does it have to? We’ve compiled some of our favorite products for combining steps to save you money and get you out the door (or under your sheets) even faster.

RE:P Nutrinature All-In-One Multitem

The RE:P Multitem is one of K-beauty’s biggest timesaving secrets. This product combines toner, essence, and emulsion all in one! It serves to balance the pH levels in your skin, brighten, as well as moisturize to leave you with glowing, radiant skin. It contains niacinamide, to strengthen the skin barrier and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and redness.
The multitem also contains antioxidantslike rosehips and lotus seed—to help restore healthy skin and avocado and olive to moisturize and lock in all those great ingredients. And the best part: RE:P is eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and vegan. This product is super lightweight and formulated for sensitive skin, but can be used on all skin-types!

Son & Park Beauty Water

The Son & Park Beauty Water is a K-beauty cult favorite! This product combines a multitude of different steps into one. Though the product was initially created as an easy way to create a clean base for makeup, it can actually be used to supplement a ton of different steps in your skin care routine.
The Beauty Water is a great water cleanser and makeup remover that also gently exfoliates (without harsh physical exfoliants) using willow bark and papaya extract to brighten. This product can also be used as a toner because it has great extracts from lavender, rose, and orange fruit to hydrate and moisturize and a pH of 4.5 to reset your skin’s natural balance. You can also transfer this liquid magic into a little spray bottle and bring it with you to spritz and plump up your skin throughout the day. This product really is the holy grail of K-beauty.

Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint

The Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint is another K-beauty winner! It’s well-loved by both Korean women as well as here at the Klog. It’s a super pigmented tint that is formulated like a gel and lasts for hours. The color can be applied and built up on the lips for any look from a natural gradient lip to a super bold, bright stain or applied on the cheeks as a natural blush color. The product has a great berry scent as well as vitamins and minerals to keep your lips from drying out, and works great on any skin tone!

RE:P Organic Cotton Treatment Toning Pads

The RE:P Organic Cotton Treatment Toning Pads are a lifesaver for anyone with a super busy schedule. They’re a combined physical exfoliator with a toner and a great option for those of you who love using natural, cruelty-free, and eco-friendly products.
One side of the pad is textured for some gentle manual exfoliation and the other side is smooth for sweeping away any impurities left on the skin. The pad is also doused in rose extracts, tea tree, and calendula for hydrating and returning the skin’s pH balance to its natural state. Because the pads are pre-soaked, this product is also great for throwing in your gym bag or a carry-on.

Missha Near Skin Simple Therapy Essence Lotion

The Missha Near Skin is a great 2-in-1 product that works for sensitive skin. It’s super simple and calming, formulated with dill extract and camellia oil to soothe and balance the skin. It combines essence and moisturizer but isn’t too light and watery or too thick, and absorbs smoothly and easily into the skin. This product is great for those with sensitive, dry, or combination skin who need a little extra kick of hydration, but don’t have the extra time for products to sit and seep into the skin or an extra hydrating mask.

Son & Park Beauty Filter Cream Glow

The Son & Park Beauty Filter Cream Glow is not just “Photoshop in a jar,” it’s super multi-purpose. It’s a great moisturizer that offers an awesome primer for makeup to give you an iridescent glow right under your makeup.
Celebrity makeup artist Min Min Ma also uses this moisturizer as a highlighter on top of makeup to give a little extra pearly shine on the skin! Plus, it won’t dry you out since it’s formulated with flower extracts, as well as pearl to brighten and rosa damascena flower to help keep oil under control.

Missha Signature Essence Cushion

The Missha Signature Essence Cushion is a great combination product. It has lightweight, buildable coverage as well as SPF built into the formula. It’s also super moisturizing and packed with essence to brighten skin! The essence also has hyaluronic acid for producing collagen and plumping as well as birch juice for evening out complexion, making it great for both skin care and makeup!

Bottom line:

Ten steps doesn’t need to mean ten separate products! There are a ton of great products out there for combining different steps to give you great skin while also reducing time in your routine especially on a busy schedule.
