Stay Fresh All Summer Long with this HC Survival Kit!

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

Summer is arguably the best and worst season of the year. It’s synonymous with all things sunny, carefree, and fun, but the tradeoff is that it can be unbearably hot, sticky, and gross. Luckily, we’ve curated a list of items that will keep you looking and feeling your absolute best no matter where you are or what you’re doing.

So go ahead. Indulge in that vitamin C, and don’t be afraid to sweat a little. As long as you carry these products along, we’re sure you’ll be feeling so fresh, so clean. Here’s exactly what you need to keep up with that level of summer fly.

A Best-Kept Secret


Secret’s new Fresh line stays fresh for 48 hours and comes in 11 fragrances. From Luxe Lavender to Cool Waterlily, each new scent provides long-lasting fragrance that won’t disappear as the day picks up. Learn more at secret.com/en-us!

Feel Fresh Anytime, Anywhere

Summer is the best time to get out and about. Whether you’re hitting the beach to soak up a few sun rays or chilling on a swanky rooftop bar, sometimes with the heat of the season, we all need to freshen up down there. In fact, did you know that the vaginal area actually has the most sweat glands than any other part of the body? That’s where Simply comes in, offering two new products sure to keep you feeling confident all day long. Start your summer day with the refreshing Simply Summer’s Eve Gentle Foaming Wash, featuring a rich lather that rinses away odor-causing bacteria. Before you head out in the heat, toss some Simply Summer’s Eve Cleansing Cloths into your purse – perfect for on-the-go touch-ups. The best part? Both products are free from harsh ingredients, feature botanical extracts and are designed to maintain a natural pH level. Try both the Simply Gentle Foaming Wash and Cleansing Cloths in the new Coconut Water and Mandarin Blossom scents for a quick and simple refresh!

A Great Beach Read

Sometimes your mind just needs an escape. Unwind with a relaxing read this summer, and if you need a recommendation, we have just the pick for you. Penguin Random House offers White Fur, a novel by Jardine Libaire that explores “a stunning star-crossed love story set against the glitz and grit of 1980s New York City.” The story follows two young lovebirds that meet during cuffing season, and what starts out as a winter fling eventually develops into a deeper and more passionate relationship that they try to pursue as adults — but of course, it won’t come easy. They’ll have to face their fair share of familial drama, socioeconomic differences, and brooding life decisions in a modern millennial world. We won’t spoil the rest, so you’ll have to read on to find how this one ends!

A Next-Level Brush-Up

Think your oral hygiene is up to par? Well take a moment and imagine how much bacteria your toothbrush is exposed to at any given moment. Now imagine how that bacteria can multiply in the summer months when you’re hopping around from gym seshes to vacations… or don’t — we know, it’s a scary thought. But don’t worry, because Steripod Toothbrush Protector is the perfect solution. Whether you’re on the move, crashing the night at a friend’s, or just generally want to shield the thing you put in your mouth every day from airborne contamination, the Steripod clip-on toothbrush protector fits any manual or electric toothbrush, and uses active vapors to keep your toothbrush fresh and clean for up to three months. It even comes in a rainbow of fun colors to match your dorm or apartment bathroom.

A Dynamic Duo

So long, flat, thinned-out brows and meet flawless, shapely brows when you sculpt them to perfection with new essence cosmetics Eyebrow Designer. Not only is this handy tool available in three natural shades, but it’s a combo deal featuring a pencil and brush all in one! First it helps you define, outline, and fill in your brows with the smooth pencil, and then you can groom them to perfection with the attached brush. Name a more iconic duo than this cosmetic necessity. (We’ll wait.)

With these trusty products by your side, nothing is going to stop you from having your best summer yet!
