Back to School Must-Haves! (Plus, a Special Surprise!)

It's time for school again, so we've prepared an awesome and easy list to make your school year a breeze! Here's a list of our top-ten must-haves for this school year.

1. Bath and Body Pocketbac Hand Sanitizer
There's honestly nothing that you need more than this. School is SO dirty! Our top faves are Fresh Apple Market and Island Margarita. There are tons if different scents and colors, not to mention cute holders so you can attack them easily to your backpack/bag for on-the-go. (Read full review here.)

2. Maybelline Baby Lips

Looking for a quick burst of color and moisture? Look no further than Baby Lips lip balm. Cute, colorful, and clinical! Available in 12 different scents and colors from two collections, you're bound to find one that matches your skin tone perfectly. (Full review here.)

3. Bath and Body Works Fragrance Spray

What can we say? We really like the Bath and Body fragrances! Our top raves are Warm Vanilla Sugar and White Citrus. Available in full and travel-size, these are perfect for after gym- and anytime else! (Read some mini reviews here and here,)

4. E.L.F. Tone Correcting Concealer 

Got that one annoying zit that just won't go away? Never fear, E.L.F. Tone Correcting Concealer is here! A quick dab, rub, and you're good to go! This stuff is AH-MAZING. (I'm pretty sure I have the wrong color, but Target only carries one shade, but it works fine anyways! And my shade is porcelain. Yay. I feel like I'm the color of a snowman...or albino cat!)

5. Lush Sea Vegetable Soap

(FYI: If you think we're including soap on this list because school is the only good reason to use soap...I am sorry for those that have sniffed you. There is NEVER a good reason not to use soap.)
This soap from Lush is just...amazing! With a salty, breezy smell of the ocean, along with nourishing seaweed and salt that takes the dead and yucky skin right off, what's not to love?

6. EOS Lip Balm
Looking for a lip balm that smells good, AND goes on smooth? Try EOS lip balm. It comes in a cute little egg-shaped container. Although it's a bit hard to fit in your pocket, it's a good idea to always have one of these little guys around!(Full review here.)

7. Sea Salt Hairspray 

Have you ever wanted those pretty, beachy, coconut-smelling waves? Okay, so you never get those from the beach, (I look like a raccoon has been nesting in my hair after I come back from the beach. *sigh*) but all you need is a couple squirts of either Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturing Sea Salt Spray or Lush Sea Spray Hair Mist. (By the way, you can buy the Sea Vegetable Soap and the Lush Sea Spray in the Limited Edition Beach Box- it also includes lotion and a sea salt scrub!)

Edit (8/25/13)- DO. NOT. BUY. THE. LUSH. ONE. It smells absolutely AWFUL! I have a migraine right now because of it.
It didn't even work for me, anyways. Use the Beach Babe one instead. Trust me. 
Or actually, just use a curler to make waves! 

8. E.L.F. Zit Zapper

Once again, there's always that one pimple that ruins everything, Paired perfectly with the E.L.F. Tone Correcting Concealer, this little tube of liquid zit-killer costs only $1- but has results worth much more. Easy to apply at a moment's notice, this is definitely a must-have.

9. My Band Headbands

Have you ever bought the coolest headband, only to find out that it slips right off? Everyone has has that problem, so introducing My Band Headbands! (available at Ulta.) These headbands are perfect for any day, any sport, any time! Their velvet bottom makes it impossible for it to slide off your head. Plus, they come in all sorts of colors and designs!

10. Güd Pearanormal Activity Collection

Mwahaha, this smells SO good. The perfect mix of pear and tropical goodness...superb. Available in shampoo, conditioner, and lotion, you're pretty much covered for everything! I have to say that the ocean smells the best out of the three. What are you waiting for? *Get your Pearanormal on!

*Please excuse my lame attempt at a pun.
