This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% from Her Campus.
There are so many things that I love about being the CC of Her Campus Harvard. I love the people (shout out to my Co, Amy), I love the writing (of course), but most importantly I love the freebies. Her Campus has some of the coolest sponsors, and that’s why we get to try out the most eclectic collection of products.
1. Freeman Beauty
There’s something about midterms – maybe it’s the combination of school stress, no sleep, and caffeine – that leaves my face broken out, puffy, and sad. Thanks to this year’s Her Campus Survival Kit, my friends and I were able to try out Freeman beauties Feeling Beautiful masks. Coming in Rejuvenating Cucumber + Pink Salt Clay, Manuka Honey + Tea Oil Clay + Cleanser, and Detoxifying Charcoal + Black Sugar Mud, the masks left us a little cleaner, a little calmer, and a little happier (if only because we spent about ten minutes trying to learn how to talk without moving our mouths. Facial movement didn’t seem to inhibit the mask process, it just seemed like a fun idea).
Okay, Aéropostale went all out and I’m so about it. I’m talking rings, hair ties that don’t pull your hair out (one curly hair problem solved, 99 to go), chokers, a wallet, and some dope sunglasses.
I’ve already recieved compliments on my new favourite rings.
Also, did you know that Aero has stretchy denim?
Do you know what that means?
That’s over! ^ It’s hard finding jeans that fit your bodies curves. Bless Aero for designing jeans around an everyday girl’s needs.
3. Bed Head by TIGI
My hair’s naturally dry, so dry shampoo is not for me, but it smells so good that I almost wish I did. Plus, one writer on my team who shall remain anonymous (Lupe) says Bed Head is a life saver.
Luckily for me, Bed Head also sent us Shine Hairspray and Hard Head Hairspray. I may not be able to roll out of bed like Lupe in the morning, but now I can try to look more like this:
Okay, whose idea was it to put real fruit in sparkling water? No. No. It’s not fair. We never stood a chance against this bougie beverage. I have never felt so classy drinking something from a can, in a mocktail, cocktail, or otherwise.

5. Eric Condren
My only complaint is that I didn’t get it sooner. Cute, lightweight, with plenty of space for my must dos, should dos, and doodles, Erin Condren’s Hardbound LifePlanner is so good you need to try it for yourself to understand.
We’re giving 5 away tonight at 10pm, so stay tuned on our instagram: @hcharvard and Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hcharvard/ to enter the giveaway. If you’re not one of the lucky 5, don’t worry, you can still buy the LifePlanner at http://bit.ly/HCxECHBLPLM.
6. L’Oréal Paris
If you get pale in winter and you know it clap your hands, or get yourself some bronze self-tanning towelettes and moisturizer. You can look like a ghost today (you know, because Halloween) but self-care can only wait so long.
You may recognize one of Amy’s favourite candies as the #1 soft candy in Japan. You also might not. You might just recognize it as a crazy good candy. Either way, you’ve got good instincts. We like that about you.
Available at: most all convenience stores, grocery stores, mass stores, and club stores.
Wanderlust and sanitation do not always go hand in hand. I’m used to taking two or three clean toothbrushes with me for a single week long trip. I’ve tried other kinds of toothbrush covers, but they often locked in moisture, making them funkier instead of cleaner. I’m so glad I was able to stock up on Steripod’s for my next great adventure, with unparalleled breathability, and built in thymol, creating a safe environment for every toothbrush.
