Must-Have Fall Products from HC’s Back to School Survival Kit

Everyone knows back to school means back to a few staples of the year. Basically, everyone in sight is stressed, people are getting sick left and right, and school work is piling up. Lucky for us, Her Campus is always there to help with their survival kits!

This fall’s survival kit features a variety of products for all aspects of life that will keep you going throughout this overwhelming part of the year!


Buxom Big Tease Plumping Mascara

Makeup is not my forte, but I absolutely love mascara. It takes a lot for a mascara to live up to my standards being that it’s one of the few makeup products I wear. Buxom’s Big Tease does not disappoint. It does the job with one swipe on your eyelashes. My favorite part is that it doesn’t clump, which is an incredibly important compartment of a good mascara.


L’Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze

Self-tanners usually get a bad rep for turning your skin orange or being way too much of a hassle to even bother trying. L’Oreal’s sublime bronzer is ridiculously easy to use. It’s a lotion, so it’s simple to apply and doesn’t leave streaks. It’s not too much color at once, being that you can control how much you put on. I’ll definitely be using this for those times I have to dress up in the winter and my legs are extra pale.


Skintimate Shave Cream & Conditioner

One thing I’ve always hated after shaving is feeling like my skin is extra dry. It’s that awful flaky, uncomfortable feeling that leaves you reaching for lotion ASAP. Skintimate is a life saver when it comes to this, this shaving cream is a 2 in 1! It makes shaving a breeze while moisturizing. Dare I say I think it makes me want to shave.


Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

I’m obsessed with this product! I’ve heard friends talk about micellar water but never understood the hype. Safe to say, now I do. This stuff takes off even the toughest eye makeup and is SUPER gentle. If it’s a late night and you just don’t have the energy to do the entire nightly skincare routine, this cleansing water can be used in place of a typical cleanser. It takes makeup off and cleans skin, no rinsing required.  


Katy Perry’s Indi Perfume

This perfume just screams sophistication. It’s something I am supposed to wear to my future job at a big-time news organization. I love that it’s not too overpowering, it’s just a nice everyday fragrance. And who doesn’t want to smell like Katy Perry?


Garden of Life Maple Sea Salt Gol Bar

I’m usually pretty skeptical about protein bars, as they tend to have a distinct taste that I’m not too crazy about. This Gol Bar had a light flavor and managed to fill me up, but not feel like it was too heavy to eat the whole bar. It’s a great snack to have between classes, after the gym, or if you just need a little pick me up! It’s certified USDA organic and Gluten Free, too
