BEAUTY PICKS Survive and conquer dorm life with these beauty essentials By Laura Flanagan
Ojon Rub-Out Dry Cleanser
If cramming for exams and final projects leaves you no time to lather, rinse and repeat, grab Ojon Rub-Out Dry Cleanser, $27, for a quick pick-me-up. The eco-friendly spray refreshes dirty, over-producted hair, leaving your locks looking so fresh and so clean.
With the price of tuition, books and those essential designer sample sales, who has cash left to splurge on hair? Get back to basics with Finesse Extra Body Shampoo and Conditioner, $3 each. Because sometimes you need to be a little thrifty and sometimes you need to spend a lot.
Late nights at the library will leave your eyes looking, well, less than fresh. Try Mark. Light Bright Lighten & Depuff Eye Gel, $10, for an instant eyelift minus the scary procedure. A twice-a-day dose will have puffy peepers looking bright and beautiful in no time.
Because when you get to your dorm you’ll realize “space” is a foreign concept, check out Cake Satin Sugar All Purpose Treatment Balm, $24. The sweet smelling shea butter and beeswax combo tames flyways, dry spots and even combats stretch marks, eliminating the need for a sea of bottles.
Aveda’s first-ever full skincare line couldn’t have debuted at a better time. As you pack the last ten years of your life and haul it off to school (read: as far away from your small town as possible), don’t forget to toss in Aveda Outer Peace Acne Spot Relief, $38. Cause it’s only a matter of days before that greasy cafeteria food shows up on your skin.
