5 Inexpensive Skincare Dupes Every College Girl Absolutely Needs To Have

You can thank me later.


When you're in college, the bottom line is you're probably broke. Money goes to tuition, books, food and the small amount of spending money you have left over, you spend it on having a good time with your friends. Though, through the stressful years of university, you shouldn't have to compromise on how you take care of your skin. Don't worry, as a seasoned skincare junkie, I've pretty much come up with the best dupes for the super expensive skincare. So, if you want to have glowing skin and not absolutely break the bank, check out my foolproof list of cheap but great skin care products you need to know about!

1. Face masks from Freeman.


A pretty much spot on dupe for Glam Glow, you can find these guys in any Walgreens or Target, for less than 10 dollars. Plus they come with three times the amount of product as compared to its expensive counter part.

2. The Ordinary from The Abnormal Beauty Company.


A dupe for Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil. You can order this oil from their website for $6.70 as compared to the Sunday Riley price of $105... It's literally the same thing and you get the same exact amount of product with the dupe. Also, they offer different levels of intensity for your skin types!

3. Face Scrubs from St. Ives.


A dupe for the Fresh Sugar Face Polish, $62.00 St. Ives Nourished and Smooth Oatmeal Scrub and Mask, $3.09, available at Target

4. Micellar Water from Simple.


A dupe for any expensive oil cleanser, to be honest, you seriously can not go wrong with this magic makeup removing water. Priced at $5.39 at Target, it's literally a STEAL. ( I don't actually recommend stealing it though.)

5. Anti Wrinkle Cream from Ponds.


By far the best dupe on this list, its the dupe for La Mer Creme De La Mer. Save yourself $100 and go to target and grab the ponds cream. It's literally the EXACT same thing, just not as cute packaging but I think we can compromise our bathroom aesthetic for some great moisturizer.

Remember, saving your skin doesn't need to break the bank ladies. So, now run don't walk to your local Target and stock up on these amazing products. Your skin and wallet will thank you.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
