16 Back-To-School Beauty Kits That Will Make Your Life Easier

August 30, 2018

Normally, universities cut out the confusion of back-to-school shopping with long checklists, including shower caddies, mattress protectors, and at least two bath towels because roommates love using your things without asking (it's inevitable, get over it). But those lists almost always leave off the essentials you can't get at Staples or the campus bookstore, like a new collection of grown-up beauty products.
Gone are the days of never washing your face and wearing clear mascara. It's time to graduate from your high school beauty routine. You're in college now — you're going to parties, snagging internships, and making connections in every lecture hall you walk in — and it's as good a time as any to upgrade your vanity.
Making time — and budget space — for pedicures, facials, or any spa treatment can seem like a distant goal when you've got student loan payments looming. For now, stick to easy sheet masks and foot peels to keep your beauty game strong without totally breaking the bank.
