With Labor Day behind us, it is that time of the year when some of us need to focus on the books. Going back to school means late nights up studying and waking up early to make it to class on time. Unfortunately, that hardcore schedule can leave our beauty routine in shambles. The time that we would spend primping is spent learning. And really, that's not a bad thing. But still, shortcuts and trusty products can help you look like you made an effort and in my opinion, absorbing all of that knowledge is a lot easier when you aren't worrying about what you look like. So sweet readers, here is a round up of back to school beauty essentials.

- Willa Start Fresh Foaming Face Wash and Face Friendly Clear Face Moisturizer
- Sisco & Berluti Friendship Bracelets

- Color Club Nail Polish in Flamingo and Silverlake
- An assortment of five select colors from Color Club's Sequin Nail Art Kit

All for $28.00 you guys! That is a MIND BLOWING deal considering a tube of Stila Lip Glaze retails for $22.00 on their website. I don't know about you, but I am going to snap the Head of the Class box up immediately because it most likely won't last much longer!

These are a backpack/makeup bag/purse STAPLE for sure. You never know when you might need to freshen up. And don't just limit use to your face. Think stink after working out, a late night pick-me-up, or I stayed out all night and have mascara on my cheek. You need this. Always. The super saturated wipes gently remove dirt, sweat and makeup with ease. They are all natural and bio-degradable. These awesome little wonders are serious multi-taskers too. Not only do the clean your face (or armpits) but they exfoliate, detoxify and rejuvenate your tired complexion.

Lip Smacker rocks! We all know that. Their lip balm is loved by all, and their Dr. Pepper version is one of my all time favorite products EVAH. I have loved it for too many years to count. I always have at least three in my house. YESSS. Of the Dr. Pepper version. It smells delicious, tastes good and give lips the most perfectly shiny hint of red tint. It is faint, but it is perfection and universally flattering. I have never met anyone who has owned it and ended up regretted it.
