Holiday Survival Kit

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

Twice a semester we get Survival Kits from Her Campus Nationals. This year, ours arrived just in time for finals! We received many amazing things from our sponsors and can’t wait to share them with you.


Alba Botanica

First up is ALBA BOTANICA. If you have noticeable bags under your eyes either from lack of sleep or it’s just a natural thing, then you should definitely check out their Fast Fix for Puffy Eyes Cooling Eye-Revive Gel. Not only does this small cosmetic provide a cooling feeling when it is put in a refrigerator, but you see results immediately after application! This gel is hypoallergenic and pocket-sized so you can take it wherever you go!


Tarte Cosmetics

What can I say other than Her Campus Winona LOVES Tarte Cosmetics! We received Tarteist PRO Palette and Lights, Camera, Lashes in this kit, and oh my goodness was the palette beautiful! This palette is a professional eyeshadow palette with 20 ultra-pigmented shades. The Lights, Camera, Lashes is a vegan mascara that lengthens, curls, volumizes and conditions, while making your lashes look fabulous! Not only does the mascara smell a little bit like chocolate (personal observation), but it does not clump your lashes either! When using these two products together you will slay!            



Being was a new brand for us in this care package, but I think everyone at Her Campus Winona could agree that the two lotions we got are definitely worthwhile. Salted caramel & macadamia was one of the flavors, and it is heavenly. Why? Because it’s loaded with honey and sweet almond oil. The other flavor in this kit was Cloudberry & lychee blossom. Filled with shea butter and sweet almond oil, this lotion is sure to leave your hands soft and smelling fresh! Both lotions are pocket-sized and easily able to be taken on the go!


Krazy Glue

We’ve all heard of Krazy Glue, and at one point or another you might have accidentally glued your fingers together. Krazy Glue is a super strong, fast-drying adhesive that can fix anything! These singles are perfect for a quick fix and are ideal for any home, office, dorm, or apartment projects.



The #ActuallySheCan tanks were created in partnership with retailer Le Motto. These tanks are very soft and comfortable, and each tank features a different empowering slogan: Less Drama, More Karma (dark grey), Less Regret, More Sweat (heather grey) and Less Hesitation, More Meditation (white). Perfect for a day out with the girls, extra motivation at the gym, or as a sleeping shirt, these tanks are perfect for anyone!


We hope you’ve enjoyed reading about the products from the holiday survival kit! Be sure to check out the links to the brands and products to find out more!
