Although midterms are upon us here at Pace, our Back to School Survival Kit has been helping to get us through.

Here are all of the treats that have been making midterms bearable:

Freeman Beauty Face Masks

  • Take the time to treat yourself to a mask, they’ll keep your skin looking refreshed, even after a late-night study sesh.
  • I’m a big fan of charcoal products for my skin so I decided to use the Feeling Beautiful™ Detoxifying Charcoal + Black Sugar Mud Mask. This mask is perfect if you’re looking for rehydration and soft skin.
  • The activated charcoal removes oil and toxins gently without over-drying and the black sugar locks in hydration, smoothing out fine lines and roughness.

L’Oréal Paris Products

  • Want to keep the moisture and glow you had in summer? No worries, L’Oréal has your back.
  • To keep that awesome tan, use their Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes or their Paris Sublime Bronze ProPerfect Salon Airbrush Mist.
  • To lock in moisture during cold weather months, use their Paris Hydra Genius – a liquid moisturizer with aloe water that will keep your face glowing with moisture for 72 hours.

Bed Head by TIGI Products

  • Who doesn't love Bed Head products? We were so excited to see these goodies in our box!
  • I’m loving the Masterpiece Shine Hairspray and Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo.
  • The hairspray adds shine and body to complete my look and hold my daily curls. The dry shampoo is a great pick-me-up since I wash my hair every other day. Bonus: It doesn't show on my clothes when I use it!
  • They’re designed to be used together so grab your sprays and play!

Aéropostale Accessories

  • Who doesn't love new fall accessories to update their wardrobe?
  • Aéro sent us some sunglasses, wallets, hair ties and jewelry that we all loved!
  • It’s hard to find time to shop during midterms so this was a great surprise.
  • We also had to check out their versatile and stylish denim after getting a taste for their fall line. Even after pulling an all-nighter for that big test, throw their jeans on and feel like a “real person” again.

Erin Condren Planner

  • These planners are everything! I have been loving on these planners for a few years now and they seriously change the agenda game. They’re personalized and customizable, making planning fun again.
  • Their new Hardbound LifePlanner™ gives a fresh new look to their signature LifePlanner.
  • This agenda will keep you more organized than ever with their horizontal weekly-layout.
  • Bonus: It’s an 18-month planner, so plan out your whole school year!


  • The last thing you want to worry about during midterms is getting sick. One way to reduce the chances of that happening is by keeping your toothbrush free of airborne contaminants.
  • Steripod creates a clean environment for your toothbrush and allows for air to circulate, drying your toothbrush naturally. The drier your brush, the less contaminates you’ll be exposed to.
  • It’s also a great way to color-code your toothbrush, separating yours from your roomie’s!

Spindrift Sparkling Water

  • Whether you need a fun and healthy study partner for your coffee or are treating yourself to cocktails post-midterms, Spindrift is where it’s at.
  • Spindrift Sparkling Water is made from sparkling water and natural fruit. No sweeteners!
  • We love their grapefruit flavor and have been drinking it at all of our meetings this semester since receiving them in the kit!
  • But, there are so many different flavors so definitely try them all.

Hi-Chew Candy

  • Since getting our kits, our meetings have been filled with so many delicious Hi-Chew Candies. We’re addicted!
  • Hi-Chews are a sweet treat for meetings or during super long study sessions.
  • They’re available everywhere and have amazing, must-try flavors like grape, mango, and apple.
  • They’re made with real fruit juices and purees and are cholesterol and gluten-free. They have 0g trans fat and no artificial coloring!
