It’s that time of year again when girls head back to college filling their tiny bathrooms with too many products. I’ve found a few everyday essentials along with some multi-tasking space savers we can all afford.
Remember those old 2-in-1 shampoo/ conditioners that did neither well? Jane Iredale’s new Truly Pure Shampoo & Conditioner cleanses and conditions hair. Great for all hair types especially oily or fine when a separate conditioner might be too heavy.
Softlips Tinted Lip Conditioners are the newest addition to the Softlips collection. Day and night, you’ll use this lip balm/ SPF 15/ splash of color trifecta.

Initially I just thought it was just a razor with a giant head on it, but Schick Intuition is the most innovative razor out there. Its blades are surrounded by a moisturizing solid that lathers up on contact right before and after contact with the razor, so there’s no need to use soap or shaving cream. Oddly, not having to prep legs before shaving them is a huge time saver, and the fragrance-free Sensitive Skin option is a must for those prone to razor burn.

Not just for acne, Clearasil Stayclear Deep Cleansing Scrub keeps skin clear and soft with exfoliating microbeads and 2% Salicylic Acid. It’s gentle enough for daily use and a great all-around cleanser and exfoliant combined.

I felt like a cheater when I tried Dove’s Ultimate Visibly Smooth just because I already use a deoderant I really love, and trying a new deodorant is just plain scary, but this new deodorant sounded almost too good to be true. I had to try it. Dove’s groundbreaking Pro-Epil Complex softens underarm hair making it less visible and easier to remove. Prickly underarm hair is softened making it less visible and the formula is hardworking. Kudos to Dove for creating a scent that isn’t trying to mimic a tropical vacation, Wild Rose smells soft and fresh without being perfume-y.
