6 HC Approved Products Perfect for Fall

What’s the best way to start off the fall season? Falling in love with new products of course! I received the following items in the Her Campus Community Care Package, and have been trying them out throughout the week. Let’s take a look at them, and I’ll tell you why they will make the perfect addition to your fall semester! 

Absolute New York Multipurpose Brush Collection & Freshly Bitten Gloss

Absolute New York is a cruelty-free beauty brand with everything from cosmetics to K-Beauty skincare. I hadn’t tried any of their products before, but I’m so happy I did! 

For starters, their new Multipurpose Brush Collection is amazing! I received their 3-in-1 Complexion + Eye Brush and can already tell it’s going to be a great addition to my beauty regimen. This brush includes three different heads; a powder brush, a face sponge, and an angled eyeshadow brush. Not only are they super soft, but since it’s 3-in-1 it will also be great for traveling!

Additionally, their Freshly Bitten Gloss is also a must have for your makeup bag. I got it in their clear shade (Deep Connection) and was super impressed by it. It’s not sticky at all and is super moisturizing thanks to the jojoba oil in it. This makes it perfect for fall! There’s no reason you shouldn’t scoop up one of their 12 shades!

Whether you’re looking for new brushes or makeup, Absolute New York has you covered!

Batiste Travel Size Dry Shampoo & Waterless Cleansing Foam

Being a long time Batiste fan, I was so excited to receive some of their products in my care package! 

Their Travel Sized Shampoo is an absolute essential. It comes in three scents; original (clean & classic), blush (floral & flirty), and tropical (coconut & exotic). It’s also perfect to put in your purse or backpack for hair refreshes on the go! 

But if dry shampoo isn’t your thing or it doesn’t work with your hair type, their new Waterless Cleansing Foam in Cleanse + Shine might be worth a try! 

It is designed for people who want to freshen their hair, but don’t want their scalp to dry out like when they use regular dry shampoo. Once you lather it into your hair, after 60 seconds it leaves you looking fabulous without leaving any residue behind. 

Available in all different types like Hydrate with Cactus Water, Strengthen with Almond Oil, Smooth with Hibiscus Root, and Shine with Coconut Milk, there’s certainly one to fit your needs!

If you’re looking to refreshen your hair care routine, give these Batiste products a try!

CeraVe Hydrating Cream to Foam Cleanser

With fall comes dry skin, so it’s important to change up your skin routine to combat it. The new CeraVe Hydrating Cream to Foam Cleanser is a perfect fit. I’ve been using it for a week now and have noticed a dramatic difference in my skin.

It gives you the perfect balance of cleansing the skin without overdrying, which is always something I look for in a cleanser. It was also developed by dermatologists and free of fragrence, soap, dyes, and parabens. In result, you know this cleanser is the perfect addition to your fall skincare routine!

For me personally, I’m in Calculus right now and I certainly need help wherever I can get it. So when I was doing my homework the other day, rather than going to the TA with my questions, I asked an expert on bartleby. Submitting my question was easy and in a little over an hour, I received a step by step answer. Not only was I able to see what I had been doing wrong previously, but the answer they got was also correct!

Lola Compact Plastic Applicator Tampons

Now you might be thinking, tampons? Why should I switch up the tampons I’m using if I like them just fine? Well, many actually have hidden ingredients not disclosed on the packaging! That’s where Lola comes in.

Their gynecologist approved Compact Plastic Applicator Tampons are made with 100% organic cotton and have no hidden ingredients, while also being pocket sized and having a BPA free plastic applicator. There are absolutely no toxins to be found! 

This tampon is their best seller and comes in a wide variety of options to suit your needs. Plus, they also donate products to sexual health initiatives! While I haven’t had the chance to try these myself just yet, I have no doubt that they will be much better than what I’m using during my period currently!

Beautyblender Bounce Liquid Whip Long Wear Foundation

Last but certainly not least, Beautyblender’s Bounce Liquid Whip Long Wear Foundation! This was probably my favorite product I received in my care package. I don’t often try new foundations but was pleasantly surprised by this one! 

It has everything I need; being both weightless and long-lasting! Not to mention, it also has Hyaluronic Acid to plump and hydrate your skin along with White Birch Extract which brightens and soothes.

I wore this foundation from morning to night with minimal creasing and cracking. Usually, when I wear foundation that long, my skin becomes super dry, but with Bounce that didn’t happen at all!

I also love how perfect the packaging is to use with your Beautyblender. It’s always my go-to tool when applying foundation, so that makes it even better!

For these reasons, once my sample runs out I will absolutely be buying a full size of this. If you’re looking for a new foundation, I’d recommend giving it a try!
