Girls' Night Out: HC Survival Kit

College is stressful, and sometimes you just need a break from all the work. Weekends are a perfect time to go out with your friends and let loose. Here are some tips, ideas, and products to give you the fun girls' night out that you deserve.


  1. Start with Self-Care

To have a fun night out, you need to feel good about yourself. This starts with the basic stuff, like showering. One great product to use in the shower is Skintimate 2-in-1 Shave Cream & Skin Conditioner. This product lets you shave and condition your legs in one go! It makes your legs super soft and gives you that little extra something to feel confident.

As fall and winter approach, we naturally become more pale. Sometimes, that perfect outfit just looks better with a little bit of tanned skin. Don’t fret, L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Hydrating Self-Tanning Milk can give you an even tan every time. It's super hydrating and can replace your daily moisturizer so you look sun-kissed all year round.

Now you got to get glam in your favorite outfit. If you’re feeling it, style your hair and put on some makeup like BUXOM’s Cosmetics Big Tease™ Plumping Mascara to look extra gorgeous. This product will give you noticeably more voluminous lashes. Plus, the conical shaped brush gives your lashes the perfect length!

Perfume gives me that extra confidence boost that can be helpful when going out with the ladies. Personally, I like earthy scents more than super flowery or sweet scents. Katy Perry’s INDI Fragrance is a perfect choice. The one of a kind musk fragrance will make you feel powerful and bold.


      2.  Make sure to pack a few snacks along the way

When you have a night out with the ladies, you never know if there will be food and exactly how much. If there are snacks, they can typically be pretty bland or boring. That’s why it's helpful to carry Frank’s RedHot + zip pouch. This small pouch contains hot sauce and Old Bay seasoning to add a boost to any meal or snack. Plus, you can also keep your ID or a few dollars in the zip pouch as well, so you have everything in one place! It’s a win-win!

If there's no food, it is always better to come prepared by bringing a Chocolate Sea Salt GōL Bar and Maple Sea Salt GōL Bar. These lifestyle bars are only made with 8 to 10 ingredients, and taste super delicious. They are the perfect snack to keep the night going.


      3.  Prepare for anything!

Let’s be honest, anything can happen while you’re out having fun with friends, so it's best to be prepared. If anything breaks or falls apart, it is awesome to keep Krazy Glue All Purpose Singles  on you. These single-use adhesives can bond almost everything back together. They are super helpful in emergency situations like a broken heel and are compact enough to slip into your bag.

The safety of you and your friends is also most important. People are unpredictable, and you can never know what would happen. Sabre Personal Alarm’s, key clips, and drink test kits can assure you that you and your girls will be safe all night long. The alarms can be heard at 600 ft away and the drink test kit can test for GHB and Ketamine in alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink.


      4.  Come back to comfort

When you come back after your night out, you will want to be back to a comforting place to get back to sleep. To achieve the perfect room environment, Bath and Body Works has you covered. Their Wallflowers Fragrance Plugs and Refills are a dorm-safe option to have your room smelling great. Plus, they have over 60 scents so you can find the perfect one for you.

Before you hop into bed, be sure to take off your makeup. While this can be a hassle, it's super quick and easy with Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water. This product will remove all of your most stubborn makeup along with dirt and oil on your face. It removes the toughest of makeup with the first swipe! Plus, the waterproof one can take off waterproof makeup, even the most stubborn mascaras!
