It's back to school time, but that doesn't mean your fabulous summer life has to stop. Head back to school with these beautifully useful items and you'll be ready for almost anything (except the answers to that Linear Algebra pop quiz).
Design Essentials Coconut & Monoi Deep Moisture Balm has you covered, literally. Add a touch of this balm to the ends of your hair to tame frizz or add texture. Smooth it over cuticles to keep your nails nice or massage it into dry skin and ditch the ashy elbows. $12.99 / Sally's Beauty
|"The Neely" Red Cherry Eyelash|
I'm obsessed with these Valley of the Dolls 50th Anniversary Lash collection from Red Cherry Lashes. You'll get four sets of lashes: The Anne, The Neely, The Jennifer and The Jacqueline. If you aren't familiar with the dolls themselves, it's time for an education.
Nothing takes you from drab to fab as fast as faux lashes and these are truly the bees knees. Save the Neely's (above, bottom left) for a special occasion and rock the Jennifer's (bottom right) on Saturday night. The Anne's (top left) are all about a Sunday brunch. Keep them in your arsenal for super glam on-demand. $24.95 / Red Cherry Lashes
Need to look fresh as a daisy when you just aren't? Amika Silken Up Dry Conditioner is a great way to add shine, a little texture and what you need after day two of dry shampoo. While it won't actually hydrate those ends, it will help you fake it until you have time for a mask. $10.00 / Sephora
While I don't like it, I know there will be those nights where you just can't wash your face. On the evenings where you can, use this Mia Fit from Clarisonic. It's small, charges off of a USB (no annoying bathroom cables) and keeps your face fresh and clean. It'll save you having to wash those annoying wash cloths and it will gently exfoliate your face, so you can save those sheet masks for later. It even has two speeds! It's worth it to keep the breakouts at bay, I promise. $219.00 / Ulta
