8 Fall Essentials From Our Her Campus Survival Kit

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Cornell chapter.



The best part of every season is when our Her Campus Survival Kits arrive! Here are eight items from our fall survival kits that will help you get through the chilly, prelim filled fall season.



1. Garden of Life Protein Bars


These protein bars are healthy and delicious! Each bar has 12 grams of protein, and they’re certified organic. When you need a quick snack to help get you through your morning classes or a long prelim, just slip one of these in your bag, and you’re good to go.


2. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water


I don’t wear makeup often, so I’m not too skilled in the art of getting it off. Sometimes it seems impossible to remove my eyeliner, but with this cleansing water, my days of endless scrubbing are over! It makes your skin feel super fresh and hydrated too.


3. Sabre Personal Alarm

Walking to my car alone and in the dark, I usually find myself clutching my keys in one hand and my phone in the other, hoping I’ll make it back to my car safely. Because of Daylight Savings Time, it’s now getting darker even earlier each night. With the Sabre Personal Alarm, I can feel a little more secure walking alone. It’s easy to use, and its 120 decibel alarm is audible from 600 feet away.


4. Buxom Big Tease Mascara


You can always use a good lengthening and volumizing mascara, and the Buxom Big Tease Mascara does just that. The cone shaped brush helps the mascara apply evenly across your lashes, ensuring a smooth and clump free application.


5. Frank’s RedHot Hot Sauce


Our Frank’s RedHot Hot Sauce came in cute travel-sized bags, because you never know when you’ll need some hot sauce! The hot sauce and Old Bay seasoning that came in the bag can help add flavor to any meal and add some warmth on a cold fall day.


6. L’Oreal Sublime Bronze


We haven’t seen the sun for weeks here in Ithaca, so your skin might be losing its summer tan. Don’t worry though, with L’Oreal Sublime Bronze, you can pretend you’ve escaped rainy Ithaca for somewhere warm and sunny. It’s simple to apply and hydrates your skin while providing you with a summer glow!


7. Bath and Body Works Fragrance Diffuser

I’ve been using a fragrance diffuser from Bath and Body Works for almost a year now, and it’s made a huge difference. Everyone who walks into my apartment mentions how good it smells, and it’s really as easy as plugging the scent diffuser with your favorite scent into the wall and letting the scent waft through your room or apartment. Right now, Bath and Body Works has a huge assortment of holiday scents that you can use to make your room smell like the holiday season.


8. Skintimate 2 in 1 Shaving Cream


Skintimate 2 in 1 Shaving Cream smells amazing and makes your skin feel silky smooth. My skin tends to get really dry in the fall and winter, so using this shaving cream keeps my skin hydrated.


Enjoy the rest of your fall with these fall essentials!
