5 Multi-Purpose Balms You Should Try

For here, there and everywhere

We've all heard about the wonders of a multi-step skincare routine. Sadly, not all of us have the luxury of time to lather on a product and waiting for it to be absorbed before moving on to the next step. For that, we're thankful that multi-use products exist. They cut our prep time without skimping on the results. 

A balm is not something that first comes to mind when you think of skincare, but with the help of these multi-purpose choices, you'll bump it up in your priority list.
