50 College Dorm Beauty & Personal Care Must-Haves
“This post is sponsored by Schick®. All views expressed are that of our own”
Oh, how I miss my carefree days of college. Those were the days when getting A’s on my tests were the biggest hurdles of my week. The days when I ate more fast food than I could handle now, and when most of my exercise came from walking around campus. There were no kids, no mortgages, and no houses to maintain. I came and went as I pleased and only had me to worry about.
I guess I really should have enjoyed those 6 years a lot more, and lived it up just a wee bit more. I didn’t get to experience actual “dorm” life, but I did get my first and only apartment at the tender age of 19. It was brand spanking new, and made just for me by my amazing father. While I did LOVE my apartment lifestyle, a part of me yearned to be on campus with all the new acquaintances I had met.
Technically, living on my own in an apartment close to campus was sort of like living in a dorm responsibility wise. I had to buy everything I needed from scratch and with my own money. There were no more handouts from mom or dad, or well-stocked bathroom closets to take endless amounts of toothpaste, shampoo, and razors from.
Well, maybe not having the razors my mom would buy us was a good thing. I swear, I would start shaving and end up with more nicks, and missed hair patches than anything. I think she bought them from the dollar store or something? I guess I can’t exactly complain because I didn’t have a job then to buy my own.
Over the past 10+ years, I have learned so much about what brands of beauty and personal care supplies are actually worthy of my hard-earned money. Razors in particular are a product I have learned not to skimp on! A good razor will last weeks, and will actually shave even the thickest hair.
For the past 2 years, I have been using Shick® razors with my main favorite being their Schick® Hydro Silk® Razors. A few reasons why I recommend Schick® Hydro Silk® Razors to others is the fact that they actually shave my thick, course hair. I was blessed with not only thick hair on my head, but also on my legs! I cannot go more than 3 days without shaving because my hair is that plentiful!
I also love that these razors DO NOT give me razor burn on my inner thigh hair. The 5 curve-sensing blades glide over my legs and get every hair in one stroke (no joke!). The water activated moisture serum really does last a while when you store you razor properly. It is a great razor for college students because who had time and money to spend on cheap razors that miss some mega patches of hair!
Plus, I know from experience that most college students are pretty darn broke or on a budget. Right now, you can print one of two awesome Buy One Get One Free coupons for Schick® razors! I purchased my Schick® Hydro Silk® Razors at Rite Aid and used my Buy One Get One Free Schick® Hydro Silk® Razors coupon (up to $13.99) and got two for the price of one! Now, I will have enough razors to last a couple of months! There is also a Buy One Get One Free Schick® Disposable Razors (up to $7.99). *Coupons to be redeemed at Rite Aid, Meijer, Ahold, and Kroger.
