Beauty products that double as something else?

What beauty products do you have that you have found can be used for more than one thing?

I have the Davines Shimmering Mist... it has a strong fragrance to it, but it's quite nice. I just sprayed it on and my partner said "you smell good"... I'm out of perfume, so this will do for now.

I also melted down a lipstick and made it into a cream blush by adding some coconut oil to it and repotting it. smile What are your products that double as something else?

I use Hools as my eyeshadow base
Vaseline as lip Bain, cuticle cream and eyebrow tamer.
Will use a lipstick as a cream blusher

I use the cracked heel cream as face cream ! If it can sort out my hobbit feet it must be able to sort out the dry skin on my face !

Vaseline works wonders. It can also be added on top the cheeks for a glowy look. I realize not everyone would like this but Lisa Eldridge said that's what they did in photo shoots for years way before highlighters were a thing.

Condensed, lol 😋 I have the o keefes foot cream. I might try that if my skin gets really dry.
