I have recently purchased a lot of different things in preparation for college and just to try out some new products I have heard good things about. These products have been amazing and have done good things for me and hopefully they will for you too!
I have been using the Maybelline Fit Me foundation for a very long time and I absolutely love it! I use the dewy and smooth formula in the winter (Shade 310) and the Matte and Poreless formula in the summer (Shade 330). This foundation keeps me matte throughout the day and leaves such a natural look to the skin. I often get compliments on how good my skin looks when I am wearing this foundation and that is just the best feeling. If you are looking for a good foundation for the summer time I highly recommend this one! They have forty different shades which is a huge selection! This foundation can be found anywhere makeup is sold and runs around $6.00!
As I mentioned in my Skin Care Routine post, I have been recently loving the Dr.Bronners 18-in-1 Hemp Tea Tree Pure-Castile Soap. I use this twice a day to cleanse my face and each time I use it I absolutely love it! The best thing about it is how little you have to use! I use about two drops when I wash my face and that is the perfect amount to get my skin a deep clean and leave it feeling soft and moisturized. I have combination skin and I have noticed that this has reduced the amount of oil and dryness in my skin leaving it the perfect balance! You can purchase this really anywhere I got my 32 oz. bottle at target for $15.00!
Another skin care product I have been loving this month is the Gold Bond Ultimate Healing body lotion with Aloe. I apply this after getting out of the shower and it absorbs into the skin super fast and leaves my body feeling soft and moisturized. My skin tends to be on the dry side so this is perfect for me, it gives me the perfect amount of moisture and smells amazing! This can be found pretty much anywhere and will run around $8.00
I have pretty wavy and frizzy natural hair so finding something to control that and leave it feeling soft and hydrated is important. I have been using Moroccan Oil hair products for a while now but I have recently started using their Curl Control Cream. I let my hair sit in a towel for about ten minutes, take it down and apply a quarter size amount to my hair making sure to really massage it in especially at the ends of my hair. This can be found online and in Sephora. It is a little pricey running around $34.00 but it has lasted me for around a year and I still have a lot left! It also smells absolutely amazing.
Recently I invested in a computer for college. I purchased the MacBook Air 13″ and I absolutely love it! Apple offers an amazing student discount which gives you around $300 off MacBooks! Mine was $849 which is pretty cheap for a Mac. I have never had a MacBook in the past however I have always had iPhones and iPods so I am familiar with how Apple products run. This laptop is perfect for college and is super lite so you won’t have to worry about it weighing you down when going from class to class. You can find these discounts on apples website if you are interested!
Going along with this purchase I also got a free pair of Beats Solo 3’s! They are amazing and have such good battery life. Apple includes a free pair of these with your student laptop which is an amazing deal because they are normally $300! The quality is what I love the most because they are noise cancelling and play the music crystal clear and the bass is amazing on them. I love that they are wireless because I do have an iPhone 7 plus so I can listen to music while charging my phone again!
