It's absolutely not a secret that we love any kind of hybrid product. Whether it's makeup that doubles as skincare or products that simply allow you to skip steps in your daily routine, we're here for anything that saves precious time (and dollars). Sometimes, layering on product after product can get tiring, but you don't want to skimp and deprive your skin of vital nutrients. After all, the pros always say that the secret to having youthful, glowing skin involves the latest and greatest serums, oils, toners, and other potions.

That's why investing in a good hybrid skincare product that does the most in half the time is exactly what you need. A product that acts as a face oil and serum or a serum and moisturizer (and so on) really allows you to reap the benefits of each without overspending or clogging your pores. To help you on your quest to find the perfect one that suits your skin, I've rounded up a few below. Scroll through and take a peak at the best skincare hybrids money can buy.

I mean, who doesn't want to skip a skincare step if they can? Laneige is here to help you out with that. It's created just the hybrid for it. It's a toner and moisturizer that provides you with all the benefits of both (seriously creamy, soft skin) without the extra fuss.

Yep, the hype for this product is real. Glossier's Futuredew is an oil-serum hybrid that features plant-based extracts and hydrating oils that give you a dewy glow but never feels too greasy.

Again, who needs a separate moisturizer and serum when you can have them all in one? This is one of the best skincare hybrids out there for its ability to refine large pores, seal in moisture, and brighten dark spots all at the same time.

I don't know about you, but I love a good gel-cream moisturizer. It always seems to add an extra layer of smoothness to your skin that can't be accomplished with just a plain old moisturizer. This hybrid from Jones Road does the job.

For days you're extra dry, you're going to want to have Fresh Beauty's oil-infused rose serum on hand.

In case you're wondering what exactly a double serum is, let me explain. This unique, innovative formula combines the perfect ratio of water-soluble and oil-soluble ingredients to mimic the skin's hydrolipidic film. So basically, there's no need for both a serum and face oil, which is always a relief.

I mean, come on, a serum-sunscreen hybrid? Mara has really outdone itself. It's an oil-based serum for a boost of hydration, and it contains SPF 30. Other natural ingredients like moringa and vitamin C provide antioxidant protection for extra radiance.

A serum and primer hybrid? Genius. Do yourself a huge favor and save some makeup prep time by investing in a hydration-infused primer like Ilia's.

Psst: Neutrogena also makes a serum and primer in one at less than half the price.

Vintner's Daughter is a favorite among celebrities like Nina Dobrev for its pure, nutrient-rich formulas. The brand's Active Botanical Serum fuses the benefits of a botanical-rich face oil with the texture of a luxe serum for glowing, youthful skin.

I've never quite seen anything like Sioris's face oil-mist hybrid. Normally, I would think such a combination would be too heavy, but Sioris has managed to squash those concerns by utilizing light, non-pore-clogging oils that still deeply hydrate.

Pore-refining and packed with hydration, Fenty Skin's Fat Water is the toner-serum your routine has been missing. It also helps fade the appearance of dark spots with niacinamide and reduces oil production with witch hazel.

If you're not using a serum-infused toner like Renée Rouleau's, you're missing out on some serious extra hydration benefits. It will soothe sensitive skin and calm any over-the-top redness or irritation. It's also great for conditions like rosacea.

Dr. Hauschka's concentrated oil-and-serum hybrid is truly the best of both worlds. It contains jojoba oil, olive oil, carrot extract, blackthorn, and birch extract to restore elasticity. If you have dry or sensitive skin, it helps create a protective barrier against the harsh elements, so it's perfect for winter.

Okay, I would call this more of a glowy tinted moisturizer than a serum, really, but it does contain the benefits of both. It protects the skin against damage and adds a bit of bronziness for that just-back-from-the-beach look.

Breathe new life into your skin (while skipping the second moisturizer) with Naturally Serious's antioxidant moisture serum. It helps protect against environmental agressors, deeply hydrates, and contains caffeine to help even out your skin's natural tone.

Monastery's oil and serum in one complex blends nutrient-rich botanical oils with other essential vitamins to repair broken-down skin tissue and sun damage.

This serum is so intensely hydrating that you won't even need to slap on a moisturizer afterward if I'm honest. It's packed with two forms of hyaluronic acid and vitamins E and C. The brightening effect it delivers will be off the charts.

You can't go wrong with Violette_FR's Boum Boum Milk. It combines all the benefits of a serum, toner, and moisturizer and contains no pore-clogging ingredients. All you have to do is apply a few quick spritzes, and watch the magic happen.
