BUY IT NOW OR CRY LATER: A Polaroid Camera, Moisturizer, & More College Girl Essentials

Meet Buy It Now, Or Cry Later, our monthly roundup of cute, chic, funny, or just truly essential things our editors are buying right now. Because we like to shop, and you like to shop, so let’s shop together, shall we? RIP to our bank accounts. 

Nail & Cuticle Oil To-Go
Ulta Beauty

OPI, ulta.com, $10; shop now

As soon as the first blast of dry winter air hit, my cuticles became embarrasingly crusty. My mom gifted me this cuticle oil to-go during Christmas, and it has honestly saved me. I keep one in my purse, so whenever I get an urge to pick at the dry flakes of cuticle, I brush on some oil instead and feel instantly better—instead of continuing to destroy my hands, if you can relate. – Gina

Fujifilm Instax Mini

Fujifilm, amazon.com, $114; shop now

I was recently gifted this *incredible* polaroid camera during the holiday season, and I literally cannot stop bringing it to any and every outing. Unlike other polaroid cameras, this Fujifilm Instax has several super creative settings, including an abstract double exposure mode. I can’t wait to continue to play around with this and continue to improve upon my polaroid photography skills. – Felicity

Vegan Milk Moisturizer

Milk Makeup, sephora.com, $38; shop now

This is the perfect moisturizer for those cold winter days! It keeps my skin feeling fresh and clean. It also has really fun packaging, which is a bonus. – Maddie

Shea Butter Moisturizing Twist & Lock Gel 

Cantu, walmart.com, $5; shop now

I’m always on the lookout for a product that will not only define my braid-out hairstyle, but that will also leave my hair smelling fresh and fragrant. I found this in Walmart for less than $10 and it was well worth it. This is officially one of my natural go-to products for when I want a braid-out, a-twist out, a flexi-rod set, a perm-rod set. Honestly the possibilities are endless. – Aubree
