Finals have reached their ultimate end, Falcons—and you know what that means: it’s officially summer. As the season of glowing skin, beachy hair, and endless adventures is finally upon us, we need to be ready for any journey that the summer may have in store. Whether it be a spontaneous road trip or the many forthcoming grad parties, the Her Campus Summer Survival Kit has everything we need to ensure that this summer will be one for the books.


After a seemingly endless winter, it’s fair to say we’re all ready to break out shorts and sun dresses…which, of course, also means we’ll want to revert back to shaving to show off our sun-kissed legs. To get a closer shave and avoid nicks, a razor with more blades is the name of the game. We love using the Schick Quattro disposable razors alongside the Skintimates 2-in-1 Shaving Cream and Skin Conditioner to lock in moisture for all-day, silky-smooth legs. Our legs won’t be the only places in need of some hair removal, though; for touching up those pesky little facial hairs under your brows or elsewhere on your face, be sure to check out the Schick Silk Touch-Up Razors. The ultra-fine, refined blade is perfect for sculpting these sensitive areas on your face with ease.

A long day of lounging on the beach or cruising on the water will make your hair crave some TLC. The Bed Head by TGI Beach Freak Detangling Spray is a must-have for knotted up beach hair, delivering the perfect dose of moisture to effortlessly comb through wind-blown follicles. On days when you just can’t make it to the beach but still want to encapsulate that beachy “I woke up like this”  ‘do, the Bed Head Beach Me Wave-Defining Spray will give your hair the perfect salty-style. As always, dry shampoo is an essential part of our hair arsenal. The Bed Head Bee Hive Dry Shampoo is perfect after long nights under the stars to give your hair a much-needed pick-me-up.

Between the long hours of interning and the weekends spent in the sun, it’s important to take care of your skin and deliver some key nutrients—especially over the summer. The Freeman Beauty Detoxifying Charcoal and Black Sugar Mud Mask is ideal for gently extracting impurities, and their Clearing Sweet Tea and Lemon Peel-Off Mask will leave your face feeling toned, refreshed, and rejuvenated. Grab some face masks and brew up some frozen drinks to treat you and your squad to a relaxing spa night after long beach day this summer.

There’s no denying that lip gloss is having a major moment in the beauty world this summer. Our go-to for lustrous lips? The Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Polish in Dolly. In addition to the high-shine finish, the plumping formula will leave your pout looking refreshingly voluminous—and the universally-flattering shade is perfect to wear from your internship office to a night out on the town.

When adventure calls this summer, you’ll want to be equipped to make your weekend getaways or impromptu road trips go as smoothly as possible. With Krazy Glue All-Purpose Singles, you won’t need to panic in the wake of a broken sandal or damaged luggage. Just grab one of these single-use tubes and apply to the damaged article, and you’ll be ready to go in no time! Trust us, once this glue dries, it won’t budge for anything.

Summer 2018 is sure to be one filled with laughter, excitement, and lasting memories—and with the Her Campus Summer Survival Kit, you’ll be ready for any summer escapade that comes your way. Have a phenomenal summer, falcons—and make sure to “seas” every day!

Native New Yorker Brooke Camarda has had her eclectic share of jobs—from the runways of NYFW to the haunted hallways of NYZ Apocalypse. Commonly known by her alter ego of Wonder Woman, there's no task or adventure that the skydiving-enthusiast isn't willing to take on. She loves typography and cappuccinos almost as much as she loves her (very) big family, and is thrilled to be writing for Bentley University's chapter of Her Campus.
