Whether you have just received your acceptance letter or you’re heading back to Uni after a summer break, it’s time to get your essentials sorted! Remember guys, mum and dad will not be there when your toothpaste runs out in your student digs, so get a pen and notepad and take note…
Quick & Effective Skincare
Late nights and early morning life as a student calls for a quick and efficient skincare routine. Budget-friendly cleansers, such as face wipes or micellar water, will keep your skin cleansed and free of makeup, dirt and grime without blowing your budget. While our range of Own Brand skincare, such as the Vitamin C or Naturally Radiant collections, will help keep your complexion glowing without dipping too far into your spending pot!
Toiletry Tick- List
Toiletries… seems so basic, right? But trust us, you don’t want to be caught out without a drop of body wash in sight! So, keep your bathroom staples stocked up (we’re talking shampoo, conditioner, body wash and toothpaste) to prevent a frantic root through your housemates’ stash or having to go to a 9 am lecture feeling anything but fresh!
Whether you’re heading to Uni with your significant other or you’re single and oh-so ready to mingle, your sexual safety needs to be a priority. There’s plenty of choice when it comes to contraceptives, so it’s advisable to find the one that works best for you. Not sure? Get clued up and stay safe by reading our guide: Contraceptives Explained.
Handy for Lectures
With a day full of lectures and seminars ahead of you, you’ll want to ensure you have the basics in your backpack. Learning can be thirsty work, so don’t forget your refillable water bottle. Not only is this kinder to the planet, but it’ll be also kinder to your bank balance too. As well as staying hydrated, keep germs at bay by keeping pocket tissues and hand sanitiser on you when you’re out and about. Fresher’s flu is a real thing, you know!
Being a student is often a balancing act between turning up for classes on time, handing in assignments and enjoying all the social activities your Uni has to offer. Help keep those yawns at bay (and to stay focused when studying) with energy boosters such as vitamin and mineral-rich Berocca tablets. (Obviously, a good night’s sleep will usually do the trick too!)
At Uni, you’re going to enjoy a night out or two! So, get your glam on (and looking fab for all the photos to be taken) with the latest makeup must-haves. Asides from dancing the night away with your newfound roomies or course mates, makeup will also come in handy for impromptu fancy dress nights. Cavegirl? Superhero? Mime? No problem with our range of palettes, eyeliners, lipsticks and more!
Being away from home for the first time can be challenging. The first real experience of independence can throw up all sorts of emotions you didn’t even know existed! So, if you’re in halls, or sharing student accommodation, keep some cosy comforts close by, such as candles or a room spray you associate with home to help you settle into student life.
