Back-to-school season is officially here. Many of you may be preparing for college life, and this means you’ll likely be using your dorm’s miniature showers and share a bathroom with the rest of your floor. It sounds inconvenient and daunting at first, but it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your beauty routine. Check out our favorite shower caddy must-haves for staying gorgeous all semester long.
Tresemme 24-Hour Body Shampoo: If you’re looking for a shampoo that packs bulk, Tresemme’s 24-Hour Body Shampoo is your answer. The bottle is huge so it will likely last you the whole year, or at least half, depending on your hair length. This volumizing shampoo gently cleanses your hair without stripping all your hair’s natural oils or weighing down your tresses. ($4.49, walgreens.com)
Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Conditioner: It’s often hard to find a shampoo/conditioner combo that satisfies all your hair’s needs. Garnier’s conditioner nourishes dry hair and keeps your hair shiny and touchably smooth. Be sure to apply from the middle of your hairshaft to the ends to prevent your scalp from getting greasy. ($6.99, drugstore.com)
Clean & Clear Morning Burst Skin Brightening Facial Cleanser: This non-greasy cleansing gel contains brightening caffeine, lemon, and papaya to awaken you, while reviving your tired appearance (late night study sessions anyone?). The microbeads gently slough away dead skin cells. You’ll be glowing all day! ($6.99, ulta.com)
Dove Exfoliating Body Wash: A bottle of body wash, as opposed to a bar of soap, means less mess. No more soapy residue in your shower tote. Dove’s wash gently exfoliates the skin, eliminating the need for a separate scrub, while providing deep moisture to ensure comfortably smooth skin all day. (8.99, drugstore.com)
Venus and Olay Razor: This time-saving 5-blade razor makes it easy to get touchably smooth legs without fumbling for the shaving cream. The razor uses Olay moisture bars to render shave gel completely unnecessary. When shaving in that tiny shower, this razor will be your new best friend. ($10.99, cvs.com)
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream: Cetaphil’s moisturizing cream is a fragrance-free, gentle moisturizer. Keeping this tub of cream in your shower caddy ensures that you remember to moisturize daily. Apply a liberal amount right after your shower (while your skin is still wet!) to trap in moisture and prevent skin from drying. ($13.99, walgreens.com)
