Going back to school is easier when you have everything you need. I just sent my son Johnny off to college, and Caci moves into her college room soon. There is just so much you need when getting ready for the new school year that keeping track of everything can be difficult, no matter how many times you do it or how organized you think you are. I used this handy check list to keep me on track and get all of the last minute items we needed. When it comes to beauty essentials, though, I have those down. With years of experience, my kids and I know what beauty items work and what will get you in and out of the bathroom and into the classroom fast.
Let's face it; there is not much time to be had in the bathroom when you are sharing it with hundreds of others at college. You need products in your dorm room that will go the distance and work while taking up the least amount of space. Head back to school with these must-have beauty essentials.
Whether you use them to take off your makeup at the end of the day or freshen up your skin first thing in the morning, these towelettes are essential to your skin care routine. The soft, textured cloths work quickly and leave skin squeaky clean. I stock up on three packs to last an entire semester.
Lip balm is a must-have year round, but especially when you are spending a lot of time locked up in a college dorm sleeping or studying. All of that dry air takes a toll on the lips, and EOS Lip Balm is packed with soothing ingredients to keep lips smooth day in and out. I like that it comes in a variety of flavors for both Johnny and Caci and there are even multi-packs so I can stock up.
I've been stocking up on most of my kids' college essentials at eBay. Yes, eBay! Did you know that 80% of all merchandise sold on eBay is new and they have virtually EVERYTHING you could ever think of — there are approximately 1.1 billion listings at any given time! As I said, the college check list was a huge help for me this year. The best part is that 87% of items sold on eBay are Buy It Now — no bidding necessary — and 67% of items ship for free.
What are some of your back to school essentials?
