While some beauty products have a specific target area like dark undereye circles or scuffed cuticles, other products are multi-functional and can be used for almost any beauty need.

Here are some great all-rounders.

Classic: Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream
This is described as an "all-purpose balm" and it truly is. Chapped lips, brittle cuticles, dry spots - you name it, Arden fixes it. A beauty editors favourite all over the world.

Celebrity fave: Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream
Egyptian Magic is made with six natural, food-grade ingredients: Olive oil, beeswax, honey, propolis, pollen and royal jelly. It works wonders on stretch marks, cracked heels and dry skin in general. Actress Juliette Lewis is a fan.

Luxe: Carita Baume de Beauté 14
Treats dryness with a mix of hazelnut, corn and macadamia oil and can be used on both skin and hair to protect from the elements. Can help with symptoms of eczema too.

Natural: Rigs & Rouge Balm
Natural balm in a cute tin jar. To be used on lips, cuticles, face and body and even hair to set your brows or flyways. Spreads a subtle but pleasant fragrance if applied to pulse points. Comes in several flavours - try cherry and vanilla.
