College is hard, but it doesn’t have to be. From endless homework to the stress of midterms. Everyone needs a little pick-me-up. With some help from your Her Campus mid-semester Survival Kit, you can take on the hassle of life and college and look fabulous doing it. Make sure you check out these products to keep you refreshed, replenished and organized all semester long.


Stress taking a toll on your skin, no worries. As college students, we get so caught up in our studies that we forget to pamper ourselves, so remember to treat yourself, queens. Sometimes, a facial is just what you need to go from dull and stressed out to radiant and flawless. Whether you need a Rejuvenating Cucumber & Pink Salt Clay Mask, Manuka Honey &Tea Tree Oil Clay Mask, or a Detoxifying Charcoal & Black Sugar Mud Mask.




Fall is here and who doesn’t like a good closet revamp. It’s out with old and in with the new. Aéropostale has everything you need to pop out this fall including a new assortment of denim, and accessories that are sure to add some flavor to any look. Elevate your closet and add some flair with a good jean on jean outfit. You’ll be happy you did.




If only we could all wake up flawless like Beyoncé, but sadly, we cannot. We must take on the task each morning of taming our mane. Thanks to Bed Head, beautiful and healthy stylish hair is easier than ever. Whether you need to keep your curls from falling or a quick refresher during classes, Bed Head has just what you need.




Put the mimosa down. While living lavishly is nice, we all need something healthy to get us through our day. Spindrift sparkling water contains real fruit ingredients that adds to its superior taste. Kiss bland water goodbye, and say hello to Spindrift Sparkling Water.


When it seems like there’s so much to do with so little time, make sure you slow down and get organized. A planner may just be what you need to make bigger tasks less overwhelming and check the smaller tasks off your list faster. Make sure you grab an Erin Condren Hardbound LifePlanner!




Toss the grandma candy in the trash, sis. Next time you want a quick treat, grab Hi-Chew candy. It tastes better and is better for you. Try it. It may just become a part of your stash. Tell your girls to get their own because you won’t want to share. The sweetest things in life come in small sizes.


Lacking melanin? Not even, but for our melanin deficient friends who need a little more help, L’oréal Paris will have you glowing with their new bronzer mist and self-tanning spray. Why be pale this winter when you can glow with the help of L’oréal.


Toothbrush holder? Check, but what are you using to protect the actual brush? Steripod clip-on toothbrush protector with active vapors fits any manual or electric toothbrush, and keeps your toothbrush clean and fresh for up to 3 months. Pick up a Steripod clip and say thank you to your toothbrush, ladies!


Make sure you grab these essentials to get you through the semester. The finish line is closer than you think. Keep your head up and your crowns straight, queens! Be encouraged.
