College Women Are Living for These Skincare Essentials, According to Instagram

My dream morning routine? Waking up at noon to pancakes and applying a face mask. My reality? After snoozing my alarm five times, I (quickly) jump into some skincare. But despite the busyness, it's actually one of my favorite parts of the day. I may not ever wake up to pancakes and a face mask, but it's just enough time to focus on me. If my skin is prepped, moisturized and slathered in SPF, then I feel like I did something for myself and I'm ready to live my best life. 

On @HerCampusBeauty, we recently asked college students what products they splurged on and this time around, we asked them about their morning routine. Obv, they shared all the inspo about what products they're using and what they want to try the most. If you're hunting for the ultimate a.m. motivation, look no further!
