With a good chunk of the country heading back to college in the next coming weeks, I thought it would be fun to put together my favorite beauty & skincare products and create a chic college survival kit! 

There's nothing better than putting together a little DIY gift for a friend to let them know you care! 
If you're gearing up to head back to school yourself, don't worry, because you'll also be able to treat yourself to some goodies without breaking the budget!
I know how stressful the back to college time can be, and the importance of looking & feeling your best! Feeling your best can start with clear, clean skin. It’s important to have a makeup routine that not only covers up blemishes but also helps prevent acne!  

So, I headed to CVS and picked up a few Neutrogena® Cosmetics to help with this goal. I've been using Neutrogena products for the past four years, so I whole-heartedly trust Neutrogena's SkinClearing makeup. It's developed by dermatologists, which means you get natural-looking coverage while also helping to improve your skin (hooray)! 
Now, is a great time to stock up on Neutrogena products because they have two amazing ibotta offers available to use exclusively at CVS ($3.75 off any Neutrogena Cosmetics Face Product  & $2.25 off any Neutrogena Cosmetics Lip or Eye product).  

Once I got home, I gathered all the supplies & got to work on this back to school beauty kit! Here's what all went inside: 
  • A metal storage container
  • 2 makeup bags (1 clear & 1 floral)
  • Cute stationery & clipboards
  • Tissue paper
  • bow
  • Neutrogena® SkinClearing® Liquid Makeup
  • Neutrogena® SkinClearing® Blemish Concealer
  • Neutrogena® SkinClearing® Mineral Powder  
  • Neutrogena® Nourishing Eyeliner 
  • Neutrogena® Moisturesmooth Colorstick  
STEP 1. Get your storage crate and don a bow on it.

STEP 2. Add tissue paper.
STEP 3. Layer gifts.
STEP 4. Gather your makeup & secure it (using double-sided tape) to clear makeup bag.
This will make your gifts really stand out!
That's it! You're done!
I'm sure this kit will come in handy on those days when you have been up studying all night, have a test you are stressed out for, or just need to feel good about yourself! 
My favorite thing about Neutrogena® SkinClearing® makeup is that not only does it cover up blemishes but it actually helps prevent breakouts while you wear it. Giving you peace of mind, that wherever you go; you're going to look your best!
Are you ready to head back to school?
