How to Convince Everyone You Aren’t Turning Into a Literal Goblin During Finals

The summer survival kit is here and right in time for finals. As someone who has been inundated with final papers and presentations for the past week, I know finals can take their toll. It’s important that you’re taking care of yourself but, in the event that you aren’t, maybe you can at least convince people you are. That’s where the survival kit comes into play!

Haven’t washed your hair in eleven days? Luckily Bed Head by TGI has a few products to help you, and those around you, feel like you’re practicing basic hygiene. Beach Freak Moisturizing Detangler Spray keeps your hair soft and damage-free while Beach Me Wave Defining Gel Mist provides frizz control for curls and waves. If you can only do the bare minimum (or less), at least use their rockin’ Oh Be Hive Dry Shampoo to make your hair semi-presentable.

Can’t fathom spending time or energy on your makeup in the morning? We’ve got you covered! Even a bare face can look poppin’ with Buxom’s Full-On™ Lip Polish. A quick swipe and a whole lot of shimmer can go a long way to take attention away from the bags under your eyes.

Skin breaking out in every pore? Mine too. Face masks sometimes feel like so much of a time commitment that it’s not worth the self-care, especially during finals. Fortunately, Freeman Beauty’s Sweet Tea & Lemon and Charcoal & Black Sugar masks don’t take longer than 15 minutes! Clearing and polishing, these masks improve your skin and, consequentially, your confidence.

Accidentally snap your $17 drawing pencil out of frustration while finishing your art final? Don’t fret – Krazy Glue bonds to wood! With Krazy Glue All Purpose Singles, you have just enough glue to fix that pencil hassle-free and get back in your zone.

Fur like a woolly mammoth? That’s sweet! Woolly mammoths are awesome! But if you’re looking to shed some pounds (of hair), Skintimate and Schick are the best duo since bread and butter, or Kylie and Kendall. Skintimate’s 2-in-1 Shave Cream and Skin Conditioner allows for a rinse-free shave and Schick’s Quattro YOU™ disposable razors protect skin with fewer nicks and cuts (and is scented, which is uhh INCREDIBLE). Round out your routine with Schick’s Silk Touch Up Razor that removes fine hairs and exfoliates!


Hopefully these products can keep you presentable throughout the end of the semester but, whether or not you utilize any of our tips, know that you’ll do great on your finals and regardless of however much of a goblin you become in these coming weeks, everyone will still love you.
