This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% our own.

Now that the spring semester is over and we don't have to worry about finals, it's time to finally let loose and enjoy summer! Whether you're taking summer classes, working, interning or just enjoying your vacation, these products are perfect for a girl on the go. They're complete lifesavers and easy to use, especially if you don't have time to stop being a boss. 

  1. 1. Carefree Acti-Fresh Twist Resist

    With Carefree's new Acti-Fresh Twist Resist panty liner, there is no longer a need to rush to the bathroom in the middle of the day to get rid of the awkward and uncomfortable bunching or to change the liner. Carefree's new honeycomb soft, quilted design is made for maximum comfort and to minimize bunching and twisting. The Qwik-Dry core locks in fluids faster and includes an 8-hour odor control system for all day freshness. They're perfect for the college girl with a million things to do and no time to slow down. 

  2. 2. Verb Ghost Shampoo & Conditioner

    Verb's Ghost Shampoo and Conditioner is a great hair care product for the summer or year-round for those who live in areas of high humidity. My hair often frizzes up and gets very tangled, especially with the humidity that comes from living in Florida. Not only does the Verb Ghost Shampoo and Condition defrizz and detangle hair, but it also softens the hair a lot after a single use! It even has UV protection which is perfect for the girl who wants to spend time outside with the sun shining down on her. 

  3. 3. Skintimate Exfoliating Warm Vanilla Sugar

    I am the laziest person ever when it comes to shaving—sometimes I just don't want to spend any of my time doing it. However, Skintimate's new Exfoliating Warm Vanilla Sugar razor makes shaving quick and easy. As soon as you open the package, there is a burst of the sweet vanilla sugar scent which is embedded into the handles. The razor has four smooth protecting blades for optimal shaving and a ridge that gently exfoliates while doing so. Paired with a hydrating shave gel, the new razor creates an ultimate shaving experience. 

  4. 4. Skintimate Raspberry Rain Shave Gel

    Skintimate's new signature scented Raspberry Rain Shave Gel provides the ultimate razor protection for a close but comfortable shave. The new hydrating formula has vitamin E and olive butter, which replenishes the skin's natural moisture and leaves the skin feeling healthy and smooth. 

  5. 5. EXTRA Refreshers

    Extra Refreshers has three new flavors available: Spearmint, Tropical Mist and Polar Ice. The gum is a great addition to purses, backpacks, beach/pool kits or gym bags. No one likes carrying around a toothbrush or toothpaste, and you shouldn't have to. Just pop one piece of Extra Refreshers gum in and you're good to go! Who doesn't love minty fresh breath? Something as little as sharing a piece of Extra gum can spark a meaningful connection. In fact, when you give Extra you get so much more in return. 

  6. 6. Innisfree Cica Balm

    Innisfree's Cica Balm with Bija Seed Oil takes a gentle K-Beauty approach to caring for troubled skin. Troubled skin can often be irritated even more with products that include harsh chemicals, but the Cica Balm is a lightweight gel-balm made with Bija Seed Oil and Centella Asiatica Extract. The oil and extract help strengthen the skin's protective barrier while also improving the uneven skin texture. The Cica Balm also pairs well with Innisfree's Blemish Care Spot Serum with Bija Seed Oil. 

    Two ways to use Cica Balm:

    1. Moisturizer: apply an even layer to the entire face. This can also be applied over acne spot treatments, once they have dried down.

    2. Targeted care: apply onto areas of concern and follow up with a moisturizer. 

  7. 7. hcxo Koozies

    The Her Campus hcxo Shop has so many products that are great for the summer, including hats, cups and tumblers, tank tops and even fanny packs. But the cutest and most summery product would have to be the drink koozies. With these adorable koozies, you can add style to your favorite summer beverages while avoiding the feel of the condensation and cold from the drinks. The koozies also insulate chilled beverages and keep them cold for longer amounts of time. There are quite a few styles available including "Is Mercury in Retrograde?" and "Rosé Can You See," which is perfect for the 4th of July! 

Summer can be all about relaxing at the beach or it can be about work and internships to gain experience. No matter what you're doing, you should be using products that provide you with the ultimate experience. These summer essentials will be a lifesaver when you don't even have time to stop and smell the roses. Don't worry, you can just smell Skintimate's warm vanilla sugar razors or the Extra Refreshers gum instead!
