Back to School Basics: The Skincare Edition
The school season is upon us. Time to put your best face forward and strive for success. These skincare products surely make the grade.
FOREO Mini: Maintaining a routine is the key to success in the classroom and at home. The FOREO makes skincare more enjoyable and has effective results, meaning you are more likely to stick with it and incorporate face washing into your morning and evening routine. This device is more effective at removing oil, makeup and grime from your face than hand washing alone. Because the FOREO Mini only needs to be charged every six months or so, you will never find yourself with an uncharged device on the same morning you slept through your alarm! The bright color selection makes it fun to coordinate and personalize your Mini.
ACURE Facial Cleansing Gel: Did the bill for this semester’s books leave you penniless? Not to worry, the pocket-book friendly price of this cleanser will have you singing its praise (in the shower of course!). How a company can produce a skincare line that not only works but is also eco-friendly, chock full of healthy ingredients AND is inexpensive warrants some sort of study! This product removes makeup and oil with ease, yet it will not over dry the skin. The Antioxidants work to combat breakouts while preventing premature aging. The FOREO Mini and this gel cleanser are the ultimate dream team! The scent is a slightly sweet citrus, reminiscent of lemonade stands from past childhood summers….Aaaaahhhhh…
Blinc Mascara: While a full face with heavy eye makeup may not be practical or appropriate for class, mascara worn on its own, creates an opened-eye look. Mascara makes you look bright eyed, healthy and well rested, even if you pulled an all-nighter studying for an exam. Blinc was the pioneer of non-flaking, tube-technology mascara. This product will not run or transfer onto your lower or upper lash line, making it perfect for someone active or who has little time between classes to touch-up.
21 Drops Focus: The essential oil blend is formulated to jump-start your brainpower, helping you to “focus” on the task at hand, while eliminating distractions. This aromatherapy product is all-natural and has its roots in a science and study that is centuries old. The vial is spill-proof, has an easy roller-ball applicator and is enclosed in a protective, rubbery silicone sleeve. Simply toss into your backpack or purse and apply as often as needed. Studying has now become so much easier!
