Having recently moved to university (I haven’t been on my blog so long I didn’t actually know the web adress- thanks Freshers Week), I have discovered that I have forgotten some MAJOR beauty staples. So, I have compiled a survival list for all you students out there, so that you know which products you actually need to buy.
This is pretty basic. I put this in here in case any of you are actually stupid.
2.) Shampoo. Ditto above. But make sure to try and buy one that is preferably under about four pounds, and has anti dandruff qualities.
3.) A good hair conditioner.
I brought a ‘Simple’ hair conditioner with me to University, and have been actually quite disapointed. Whereas I usually love the Simple face products, their conditioner hasn’t done anything for my hair. It is thin and quite milky, and my ends are dry and lifeless. A better conditioner is on my shopping list- herbal essences will never let you down.
For those days when you have a hangover, greasy hair and a tired face.
Goes well with a layer of foundation to make you look like you have actually had a few hours sleep at that 9am lecture.
I swear by Batiste- the tropical scented one is the best!
5.) Nail varnish remover. How stupid do you have to be to forget this? …
yeah its on my shopping list.
For now I am begging off friends and living with my chipped peach nails. Not a good look.
Goes well with:
7.)Cotton Wool buds/ q-tips
(I can’t currently remember the english word for q-tip which is really weird..mental block, but stay with me)
These are so useful, I don’t know why I don’t have any.
I forgot this also.
My face feels violated.
Despite being one of the best inventions ever, these are fun and actually exfoliate you. Use with a refreshing shower gel in the mornings to scrub off last nights vomit/food/general bodily fluids (oo-er)
10.) Heat protection spray
I cannot live without this. Even though I’m not a big straigtener I like to spray a bit on before drying my hair, it really helps it not to dry in a giant fuzzy ball and protects my hair from the heat…obviously.
Other essentials include really obvious things like shower gel (try a really nice lemon or lime one for a great wake up), toothpaste (DONT buy Macleans unless you love the taste of medicine. Bleh.), toothbrush, handcream, moisturiser….etc. I could go on.
Anyway my beauties, hope you enjoy this, I’m off to finish the job application I began about two hours ago..literally can’t concentrate on it.
Over and out.
