I love back to school shopping. Anyone else?! Still not sure what I love more…. School supplies or back to school clothes/products haha.
Something I typically forget when going back to school but then realize is bath/beauty products. It’s SO important to refresh your skincare and throw out the old and stock with the new. We all want to make good impressions on our first day back and taking care of your skin and looking healthy should be a priority!
I just ordered some of my favorite beauty products to re-stock my bathroom for this new semester. These are all products I use and it’s good to throw out old packages and especially expired products.
eBay is really awesome to find all of the back to college items you need. I know eBay is often forgotten about… but I love ordering products through them because 81% of merchandise is typically NEW. Also, 87% of products sold are available for ‘Buy It Now’ so that you don’t have to bid. That’s how I purchase my products because I do not have the patience for bidding haha.
No breakouts here please!
Stock up on those few body products you may forget about but when it comes down to it, you’ll be so glad you have things like bubble bath, epsom salt, body lotion, bath bombs…even shampoo/conditioner! I ordered a couple of nice body products that I love to use on pamper nights.
Philosophy Bubble Bath Soap: The best bubble bath soap! It smells heavenly and I mean, anything from the brand Philosophy is GOOD.
Josie Maran Body Butter: I’m constantly moisturizing my face, hands, and body. I cannot stand dry skin so I always make sure my cabinets are fully stocked with moisturizer. I love the Josie Maran body butter because it’s thicker than others and another one that smells incredible. This is my luxury, treat-yo’-self, lotion.
I’ve shared my skincare routine many times and I absolutely live for my morning/night skin rituals. I love a good clean, hydrated face. Y’all may or may not realize how fast some skincare products are used and also how fast they go bad. Throw out your old products and treat your skin to some nice, staple skincare products that will keep your face happy during the stressful and late nights in college.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray: GO-TO day/morning/night. The Rose water spray is incredible to refresh your skin in the morning and wake up, it’s awesome to set your makeup with, it’s amazing to hydrate your face with throughout the day (I carry in my backpack.) and it’s amazing to spritz on at night before climbing into bed. AKA y’all need this in your life.
Philosophy Hope In A Jar: This face moisturizer is something I’ve held off of splurging on for awhile. But this moisturizer is SO worth it. My skin can get so dehydrated and lifeless between school/work/sorority but using a high quality moisturizer each night has helped make my skin happy again.
Garnier Micellar Water: The makeup remover y’all need for college! It’s refreshing, gentle on the skin, and gets all the makeup off after a long day (or night). I adore this stuff!
Nivea Lip Balm : This is what I just ordered from eBay because a girl can never have too much chapstick right?! I apply lip balm religiously in the morning and night. No time for cracked/chapped lips!
eBay also has a really great selection of makeup brands and products that you can buy to restock your makeup for all of the fun times that you get dolled up for in college.
I love talking back to college and I hope y’all do too! Don’t forget to stock up on the little things you may forget about. Check here for a full Back To College checklist on everything y’all need. Thanks so much for reading! xo
