6 Coveted Beauty Products That Any College Student Can Afford This Summer

Finding the right beauty products can be difficult during the upcoming summer months. Between the glowing skin, sunburns and going out at night everyone wants to take care of their face. I prefer to go more natural, glowy, and dewy. Skincare is also an important factor when you incorporate the heat and skin sensitivity.

Here are some products that are both affordable and good for your skin!

1. Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid-Lotion Sunblock

Sunscreen is an important place to start! Using SPF can prevent sunburns, permanent skin damage, and wrinkles. This product was rated with ⅘ stars on the ULTA beauty website. One reviewer said  this:

So many people battle with the struggle of sensitive/hyperactive skin and wondering which products will affect your skin negatively. Luckily this reviewer noticed positive changes!

2. Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream For Dry Skin

Another skin care product with ⅘ star review on the ULTA Beauty website is the Garnier Skin Active Refreshing Gel-cream. With the summer heat and humidity your skin can dry out and it can cause LOTS of damage in the long run. It is recommended by most professional MUAs (makeup artists) and dermatologists to moisturize every morning and before you apply makeup. This can help keep your makeup from creasing and separating. Using this product while you have a sunburn and after getting one can help your skin heal. This is what one reviewer said about this product:

Thankfully for Jess this product made a HUGE difference after an incident with hives!

3. Ardell Splash Party Waterproof Mascara


While there were no official reviews for this product I used it recently, my experience with the product was amazing! Most waterproof mascaras make my eyelashes brittle and flakey. Fortunately I was left with soft lashes that were also long and thick. While I never actually got in the pool with wearing this it survived the mid August heat!

4. ULTA Tinted Juice Infused Lip Oil

This product also had a ⅘ star review on the ULTA Beauty website. This brand is actually part of the stores own line of makeup. Every summer my lips dry out and it makes me SUPER uncomfortable. I love to wear fun lip glosses. An added surprise to this product is that it includes juices for extra moisture. This is what one reviewer said:

Having a lip oil that isn’t too heavy or too light is so important it keeps you comfortable and moisturized.

5. BH Cosmetics Brilliance Bronzer

One of my favorite parts of summer is having glowing skin. I have very fair skin so sometimes it is hard to get the perfect glow, bronzers help bring out my summer tan! This product has a 4.5/5 star rating on the ULTA Beauty website. Here’s what one reviewer said about this product:

One thing I love about this product that was also mentioned in the review is that it is inclusive for MOST skin tones. There are alone 3 shades so I will have to say that it may not be complimenting to ALL skin tones.

6. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Eye Makeup Remover Pads

At the end of that day we have to remember to take off our makeup, wearing eye makeup overnight is VERY harsh on the eyes sensitive skin. This product has 3.5/5 stars on the ULTA Beauty website. This is what one reviewer had to say about the product:

So many people are getting lash extensions lately and finding the right remover that won’t hurt your lashes is important after investing so much time and money into them.
