Best Beautifying Buys for College Girls and Guys

Posted: 06/19/2012 4:49 pm

In college, there were a few places I preferred to spend the least amount of time possible:

  • The laundry room

  • The school bookstore (during the first week of class or buy-back week)

  • Communal dorm showers

While I do not have a solution for lessening one's load of laundry each week and did not discover the amazingness of Amazon.com for a few years, there are definitely ways to limit one's time in shared showering spaces.

One suggestion to save time and cash: Laser hair removal. "Not having to shave will save the average college student at least 10-20 minutes daily. Over the long term, laser hair removal can save students upwards of $200 per year," says Kim Schanzer, owner and co-founder of Pulse Laser & Skincare Center in NYC. "Over a lifetime of shaving for 60+ years, that's equivalent to more than $12,000."

Whether looking to impress the hot guy or girl in English 101, trying to eliminate time/products in the shower, sticking to a budget or attempting to avoid awkward morning beauty blunders, try these picks and tricks:

Whether at the gym, in the dorm, or taking a road trip, Mia is a must-have toiletry for clear skin. The one-button, one-speed tool has a sonic frequency producing more than 300 movements per second. Gently loosening twice as much dirt and oil than manual cleansing, it reduces appearance of pores and improves skin tone - making the 60 second routine incredibly efficient. Now, only if class registration were so easy! ($119 at Clarisonic.com and Sephora stores)
