Hey Hearters!

I thought putting together this list of beauty essentials (that are appropriate for school) would come in handy, since school has either just started or soon to be starting for many of you. From my school year experiences, a student's time is pretty precious. I get it - you're rushing to school in the mornings, then from class to class during the day. I can imagine how hectic it truly gets with a full day of classes and possibly after-school activities to follow. 2-in-1 products are a lifesaver in the life of a student! Keep in mind - less is more. Most importantly, keep up with your healthy skin and personal hygiene routines to look and feel, comfortably, your very best.

I have also included items to use during the mornings before school and/or to relax and wind-down to prep for the next school day. So without further ado, here are beauty essentials to feeling refreshed during your long days to and from school. To make the most out of the room you have available in your backpack - I highly suggest finding travel-sizes of some of these items. It would be the most convenient option for you.

Go to the very bottom of this article for the beauty essentials list of things to actually bring with you to school.
