Once in awhile, a neat little product comes along that makes you stop and say, “Where have you been all my life?” These are the products that, although they’re simple, give you that little bit of extra support that you need. As a collegiette™, you have some pretty specific needs—many of them related to your life in university housing and your college lifestyle—so you sometimes have to dig deeper to find those rare but special little items.
Well stop the digging for a while, ladies, and check out the following items that Chrissy’s Beauty School has picked out for you. These are fun, useful products every collegiette™ is going to want to check out.
Pocksie™, the portable pocket that goes anywhere, $9.95 for a six pack
How many times have you gone out for the night wearing a fabulous outfit, but suddenly found yourself lacking any storage space? Let’s be honest, ladies, there’s really nowhere you can stash your ID or your keys when you’re wearing a backless dress or sexy top. And the most obvious solution—carrying around a purse—can be such a pain sometimes.
So what’s a fashionable collegiette™to do when she needs a pocket? Create her own, it seems. Pocksie™, the portable pocket, lets you store whatever it is you need—credit card, key, ID—when wearing just about anything. You can stick this disposable pocket in your clothes, in a boot or in a reusable grocery bag. Just remember to remove the Pocksie™before washing your clothes, ladies!

ShaveMate Diva6 Razors, $9.99 for a pack of 3 disposable razors
Loking to simplify your shower? Ever gotten sick of lugging around a razor and shaving cream back and forth between your dorm room and the showers? Try the ShaveMate Diva6 razor.
This all-in-one razor has six sharp blades and a handle filled with shaving cream. It’s great to bring if you’re staying over at a friend’s dorm and want to pack light, or if you’re sick of carrying so many beauty products with you to the shower. The Diva6 is filled with enough shaving cream to last you 10 shaves so just make sure you use it sparingly.
Living at college often means living with little to no space, and your cramped room can sometimes turn into a giant, disorganized mess. But a collegiette™ needs to have a little organization to stay sane, especially when it comes to her beauty products.
To restore organization to your makeup stash, check out Magna Pods. You can stick these magnetic containers inside your steel-framed medicine cabinet (if you’re lucky enough to have one) or anywhere else you can get them to stick, and organize your must-have products so you’re not crawling under the bed searching for that mascara you lost. MagnaPods are movable and you can adjust the storage space to fit whatever products you want to store: makeup brushes, lip gloss, mascara, etc.

Cool-It Caddy, the makeup bag with a twist, $39.95
As a collegiette™ you’re constantly on the go, running from class to class. Since you’re so busy multitasking, you likely don’t see your room very much, so you tend to pack your bag to the brim, filling it with anything and everything you might need—makeup, medicines, snacks.
But when you’re running around with sensitive materials—makeup tends to soften when exposed to extreme temperatures and snacks start to spoil—you have to make sure you protect your essentials from the elements. But carrying around a cooler or an ice pack isn’t always the most fashionable option, not to mention their tendency to leak.
So what’s a girl on the go to do? Combine fashion and function, that’s what! The Cool-It Caddy is a sleek new makeup bag with a twist—it combines function with fashion. The Cool-It Caddy helps discreetly and conveniently store small items (such as makeup, medicine, or even small snacks) while protecting them from extreme heat for up to five hours. It does so by using an integrated chemical coolant with lightweight insulation layers.
This adorable makeup bag comes in six colors and a variety of designs and there’s also a version for men.
