Fall 2017 Survival Kit was lit!

I was beginning to get anxious about the Her Campus Survival Kit because I saw so many other chapters posting about it and now that it is here I am so excited for these brands and they are all so helpful for back-to-school!

I just wanted to thank our sponsors: Freeman Beauty, Aeropostale, Bed Head by Tigi, Spindrift Sparkling Water, Erin Condren, Hi-Chew Candy, L’Oréal Paris, and Steripod! Thank you for providing us with all these goodies all the way in Hawai’i. As we would say here, much mahalo (Thank you)!

Face masks are LIFE

I love face masks and so does our Her Campus Chapter! They make feeling good and relaxation so easy! Freeman Beauty face masks use the purest and most effective ingredients that do wonders for our skin. This time of the semester where we’re eating junk food and staying up late, our skin is not the best it could be BUT these face masks help you get back to that good skin confidence! Here’s what some of our members had to say about their face mask.

“The Charcoal and Black Sugar Mud mask was my favorite and did wonders to my skin! It left it feeling soooo smooth because of the exfoliating sugar as well as the charcoal that lifted away any toxins my skin had.” – Her Campus HPU Campus Correspondent Amanda Kowalski

Low-Key Fabulous

Aeropostale gave us some accessories and we love pairing them with Aeropostale jeans. It is fall in Hawai’i so the weather is beginning to get slightly chilly. Our go-to fall outfit has to be jeans, boots, and a basic tee. We love Aeropostale’s ‘Seriously Stretchy Denim Styles’ because HPU is a commuting campus so we need comfortable jeans that will take us from class at Loa to Aloha Tower and then back up Fort Street. The accessories we received are perfect complements to these jeans! We suggest wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes and stacking those rings!

Messy hair, don’t care…kind of

Bed Head by Tigi hooked us up with dry shampoo and hairspray and we are set to take on this humid weather! Hawai’i is hot 24/7 and ain’t nobody got time to wash their hair every day. The ‘Dirty Secret and Oh Bee Hive! Matte Dry Shampoo’ helps us combat our second-day to third-day oily hair and adds major volume. ALSO, the Dirty Secret dry shampoo saves us from heat damage and color loss, TWO-IN-ONE WINNAHS!

With the humidity we deal with, we need hairspray in our life. So Bed Head got us covered, even the hair on the back of our necks will stay down. Bed Head provided us with ‘Masterpiece Shine Hairspray’ which not only combats humidity but also guards us against dryness. The ‘Hard Head Hairspray’ on the other hand dries instantly and has a rock solid hold that can take on any weather.

I am sparkling like Spindrift

Spindrift is a crisp, delightful sparkling water and is made with real, squeezed fruit. SAY WHAT?! Spindrift keeps it as simple as it gets; from the farm to the can. Spindrift is unsweetened and only uses their real fruit juices to sweeten it up! They offer flavors like lemon, cucumber, grapefruit, orange mango, raspberry lime, strawberry, and blackberry and it’s recommended to serve chilled or over ice. These are great for hot days at the beach to refresh yourself after playing some beach volleyball.

Planning…it’s a lifestyle

Erin Condren…in the planning and organizing world, that name is GOLD! We love our Hardbound Life Planners To Go because first of all…hardcover. If you are anything like me, you just toss anything and everything into your bag where they get ruined, but this planner won’t! Also, it is SO CUSTOMIZABLE; with the horizontal week plan and the monthly overview, the possibilities are endless. Lastly, we are covered until DECEMBER 2018, thank goodness!

I chew, you chew, we all scream for HI-CHEW

HI-CHEW is a candy that I grew up on; it is something that is common in convenience stores and grocery stores here in Hawai’i. You do not know how happy I was knowing we got sponsored by HI-CHEW! It is made with real fruit that make this fun candy chewy and juicy. It is common in Japan and is becoming more popular in America. Flavors include grape, cherry, banana, strawberry, mango, green apple, and kiwi. Be on the lookout for their product “Fizzies” which contain the flavors of cola and orange-soda and sour flavors in lemon, lime, and grapefruit.

Suns down, tanning wipes out!

L’Oréal is a product that everyone and their mother have been buying for years! Based in Paris, they are providing affordable beauty care products all over the world. In our Survival Kits, we received the “L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes” and “L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze ProPerfect Salon Airbrush Mist” which is perfect for the upcoming winter months. Here in Hawai’i it gets rained out so often during the fall and winter which can make it difficult to get a tan at the beach. With these self-tanning towelettes, they are easy to take on-the-go and the tan develops between 2-4 hours which is natural and streak-free. While the airbrush mist is 360 degrees and helps you get into hard to reach places.

L’Oréal also provided us the Hydra Genius that gives our skin that moisture that is long lasting and with the aloe water and hyaluronic acid that will keep hydration up to 72 hours! This product is lightweight and L’Oréal has three different formulas that is customized for each skin type.

Welcome to the pod lifeeeee!

Steripod clips are toothbrush protector with active vapors that keep your toothbrush clean and fresh for up to three months. The special ingredient in Steipods is thymol that is used in oral antiseptics and it is a safe place to keep your toothbrush in between uses. Steripods fit over most standard toothbrushes or electric toothbrushes and protects your toothbrush from airborne illnesses and cross-contamination, which is key to keep you healthy for the semester! Steripods have an array of colors and it keeps your brush dry to decrease the amount of contaminants that need moisture to survive. Think you are going to forget to replace your pod?
