Conair Turbo ExtremeSteam GS54 Garment Steamer

Conair, bedbathandbeyond.com, $60; shop now

There are few things I hate more than ironing. Having to set up the table, check the label, and make sure I don’t burn a hole through my favorite shirt? No thanks. With a handheld steamer I can throw my shirt right over the shower rod and rid it of wrinkles in just a few minutes! Plus, this is an exclusive students faves pick that college students are obsessed with RN. – Sammi

Revlon® Pro Collection Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer

Revlon, bedbathandbeyond.com, $50; shop now

I’ve been using this hair dryer for over a year, and it completely changed my at-home styling routine. My hair is naturally super curly, and using a flat iron takes too long in the mornings before work. This dryer straightens all my hair in about 15 minutes, and it gives my roots soooo much volume. Catch me shouting into the sky about how much I love this. – Gina

Lip Sleeping Mask

Laneige, sephora.com, $22; shop now

My chapstick used to be my BFF until I met this mask. Everyone is obsessed with the OG flavor, but I’m going to let you in on a secret: the Apple Lime flavor is by far superior. It’s got a fresh scent, smooth application, and within one nights sleep, you’ll see a difference. – Maddie

Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush #7

IT Cosmetics, ulta.com, $48; shop now

This makeup brush has truly changed my life. I’ve always opted to use my fingers for applying concealer and foundation (don’t @ me!) simply because I dreaded cleaning makeup brushes. Until I met this one. It is double-sided, with one end perfect for blending foundation and the other for applying concealer. It is SO easy to clean and looks and feels brand new with each use. Before applying any makeup with the brush, I use this Setting Spray + Hydrating Mist. Both products together are a total beauty routine game-changer. – Madeleine

ORG 30-Pair Over the Door Shoe Rack

ORG, bedbathandbeyond.com, $25; shop now

Nobody really needs 30 pairs of shoes, but somehow I must have double that. I’ve long since run out of shelf AND floor space in my closet, so this rack was a lifesaver. – Sammi

Apple Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner Hair Pack

Briogeo, sephora.com, $48; shop now

I need a strong shampoo/conditioner combo due to the amount of dry shampoo in my hair each week (whoops). This combo not only gets my hair super clean, it also leaves my hair feeling so soft. I hardly even have to brush my hair post-shower. And it smells like fresh apples, which is a nice bonus. – Maddie

E-Rase™ Milki Micellar Water

Drunk Elephant, sephora.com, $28; shop now

This is the first micellar water in existence that doesn’t irritate my eyes — can you believe! It feels so refreshing to press this in with a reusable cotton pad and wipe away my makeup at the end of the day. Thank you, DE, for this creation. – Gina

The Vejo Portable Blender Starter Kit

Vejo, vejo.com, $130; shop now

This at-home portable smoothie maker has truly changed the game for me. No longer am I stuck at the counter playing barista—I can literally take this anywhere. This of it as the Keurig of smoothies: it uses biodegradable pods so all you have to do it add milk or water to the bottle, place the pod inside, and screw on the lid. And 30 seconds later, a delicious smoothie with no mess to clean up. – Maddie

Skullcandy Crusher ANC Headphones 

Skullcandy, bestbuy.com, $320; shop now

ICYMI, Best Buy has a bunch of college student deals going right now, and you can legit save $120 on a pair of Skullcandy headphones. These have been crucial for my WFH grind, especially because I have noisey neighbors. I just pop on the headphones, play my music, and cancel out all the extra noise that distracts me. – Gina
