Need A Little Self-Care Inspo? See How We Showed Ourselves Some ExtraCare With CVS

This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% from Her Campus.


What’s your self-care vibe? I’m all about coziness — we’re talking putting on my comfiest sweats, grabbing a warm beverage, and curling up on the couch with my current read. But for you, self-care might look like a sweat sesh at the gym, a coffee date with your best friend, or even a five-minute meditation to break up a busy day. Everyone takes care of themselves in different ways; the most important thing is that you actively make time to prioritize your well-being, even when life gets busy (and especially then!). 

Taking care of yourself throughout the year is the secret to feeling your best and avoiding burnout, and CVS is here to support you no matter where your self-care journey takes you. Not only can you find all of your wellness must-haves (from soothing skincare to nutritious snacks) in one place, but you can also score major deals on these products and more with a FREE CVS ExtraCare® membership. 

Her Campus recently teamed up with CVS to help college students in Atlanta, GA, and Tempe, AZ, take a break from finals and fit in some self-care with our Show Yourself Some ExtraCare events — and let me tell you, they served up some *major* inspo. Here’s what went down:

Mini Skincare Consultations

Skincare is self-care, besties! Attendees got to sit down with experts to discuss their skin goals and learn which ingredients they should look for to achieve them. From managing dryness to maintaining a gorgeous glow, they each left with personalized recommendations to help them make their skin dreams come true.

DIY Trail Mix Station

Taking care of yourself can be as easy as nourishing your body with yummy, nutritious foods. To help our guests fuel up for late-night study sessions, winter break road trips, and everything in between, we set up a DIY trail mix station where they could create their own custom snacks to take home.

Restorative Yoga & Breathwork

Moving your body and focusing on your breath can do wonders to help you stay grounded. Our attendees had the chance to participate in guided yoga and breathwork sessions that were super fun and left them with tips and tricks they could use in their own self-care practices.

Self-Care Goodies to Take Home

Of course, no event would be complete without goodie bags! Every guest received a complimentary tote filled with self-care products from amazing brands like Bubble, Sun Bum, Hero Cosmetics, and Liquid I.V.®. Functional and filled with fun goodies? I’ll take four, please.

P.S. You can shop all of the products they took home online or in-store at CVS!
