The holidays are approaching. College students go home to spend some quality time in their hometowns. But with the holiday season comes catching up with old family members, whether we like it or not and whether we’re ready or not. “How’s school going?” and “Do you have a girlfriend/boyfriend yet?” flood your mind as you walk into family parties with no idea how to even begin answering them. You’re more focused on whether you really should have gotten your cousin that purple sweater or if you should have gotten her a red one instead.
Whatever you’re stressed out about this holiday season, the Her Campus Holiday Survival Kit is here to help!
Lie back and relax in between holiday parties and present shopping while sipping on a nice, hot cup of herbal tea! Yogi tea is inspired by traditional Chinese medicine and Western herbalism and combines over 100 exotic spices and flowers to create sixty different flavors of green, black, and herbal tea. Here we have the Sweet Tangerine Positive Energy tea and the Green Tea Blueberry Slim Life tea.
Coconut gel sheet masks are the crème de la crème of sheet masks, and Leaders Cosmetics has got us swooning over theirs! At the end of a long day of holiday parties or shopping or spending time with friends and family, take off your makeup and treat your face to a mask inspired by the Seven Wonders. Their coconut gel contains vitamins B and C and antioxidant Anthocyanin which provide nutrients to your skin so it feels totally nourished! Here we have the Amazonian Acai Anti-pollution Mask, the Caribbean Coconut Calming Mask, and the Kalahari Melon Moisturizing Mask.
Rimmel’s products are a must-have for this season, from holiday parties, to family postcards, to running into old high school classmates. Super cute and super cheap, Rimmel has something we can all use! Here we have the Scandaleyes Original Mascara, the Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner, the Provocalips 16HR Kissproof Lip Colour, and the Natural Bronzer.
Yes, winter means we don’t necessarily have to shave for a whole season. BUT for those of us wearing dresses to our holiday parties (and for those of us that like to be shaved year round), Pure Silk’s shaving cream leaves your legs super soft and super smooth! It’s rich, luxurious, moisturizing, and rust-proof (so perfect for in the shower!). Here we have Pure Silk Shave Cream in Raspberry Mist. You can also enter for a chance to win a Love Your Legs Getaway! You and a friend can go to Colorado for a day of relaxation at Life Spa, a night of music at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, entrance into the Gildan Esprit de She 5k/10k, and a Pure Silk prize bag!
Happy Holidays, Collegiettes! HCXO
