7 Garnier Beauty Products You Can’t Go Back to School Without

You’ve shopped all your dorm decor, and purchased a new set of headphones and enough pens to last you a lifetime, but when it comes to back-to-school season you can’t forget how important it is to refresh your beauty products too. Yes, we’re talking a whole new shelf of skin and hair-loving treats, BUT this year we’re also encouraging everyone to keep sustainability in mind during back-to-school shopping. Why: The planet is beautiful. Let’s try to keep it that way by helping to create a greener future with packaging that uses post-consumer recycled content and select products made with naturally derived ingredients.


Consumers are realizing that their carbon footprint makes a difference! We must care for ourselves and the world around us by being mindful of things we can do to help minimize our impact on the environment. So be considerate of waste production right down to reusing or recycling every bottle and carton. We’ve still got a long way to go, but the sheer acts of shifting our mindset to carefully evaluate how our products consumed impact the environment by supporting companies that are doing good, and starting conversations with friends about how they can join the movement to – well, THAT makes a lot of difference and shapes a brighter future.


If you’re on board for incorporating green into your routine (honestly a no-brainer), let us help you with these essentials from Garnier to start with:


1. Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Waterproof

This touch of gentleness on your skin feels the BEST after a long day of classes and hours put in at the library. Garnier micellar cleansing water waterproof is designed to cleanse and remove even the toughest waterproof makeup and contains no alcohol, so even those of us with the hyper-sensitive skin won’t feel discomfort. Your pores will feel lovely and refreshed – no washing your face with soapy goo or boring face wipes here. Plus, you can consider how to eliminate waste by using this one product to remove makeup, cleanse and sooth helping to improve sustainability for the environment.


2. Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water

Soothing Facial Mist with Rose water is basically soothing embodied in a bottle, and the fact that this mist smells like a fresh spring bouquet doesn’t hurt either.

Just spritz a few inches from your face to hydrate and enjoy all the benefits of this unique formula with 99% naturally-derived ingredients! Those big words actually represent something simple: Garnier considers an ingredient “naturally-derived” if it is unchanged from its natural state or has undergone processing, but still retains more than 50% of its molecular structure from its original natural source. So, when we say that this formula consists of 99% naturally-derived ingredients, the remaining ingredients constiture 1% of the formula to ensure its sensoriality and preservation. (Yes, it is as good for your skin as it sounds.)


3. Fructis Sleek and Shine Shampoo Conditioner and Leave-In Cream

Why just survive dorm showers when you could thrive in them? This system of shampoo, conditioner and leave-in cream are formulated with Argan oil and Active Fruit Protein, this haircare routine help make your locks visibly sleek and smoothe. It’s more than just glow though – this system is a staple if you’ve got frizz that needs to chill out. Use the complete system to say hello to long-lasting frizz control even in 97% humidity (when using the shampoo, conditioner, leave in treatment). Raise your hand if you’re adding this fruity TLC to your shower regimen ASAP!


4. Fructis Treats 1 Minute Hair Masks

This line of 1-minute hair masks are the definition of fast nourishment. Each has a unique extract, either avocado, papaya, banana, goji, or coconut for smoothness, strength, color vibrancy, or nourishment FAST. Like we mentioned above, these masks contain 98% naturally-derived ingredients. We consider an ingredient to be naturally derived if it is unchanged from its natural state or has undergone processing yet still retains greater than 50% of its molecular structure from its original natural source. The formulas are 94% biodegradable too! Use them as a hair mask, conditioner, or leave-in treatment for anything you have going on that day. Whatever route you decide, your hair will love the nourishment sans silicones, parabens, artificial colorants, or animal derived ingredients or by-products.


5. Fructis Style Smooth Blow Dry Anti-Frizz Cream

Frizz-sufferers know how real the struggle is after a blowout, so say hello to controlling and taming flyaways with this lovely little cream. This light-weight paraben free formula helps protect hair from heat damage frizz and will keep your ‘do shiny all the way from pre-class coffee to dinner with friends after your sorority meeting.

Turn your shower sessions into a wholesome haven with this shampoo and conditioner that leaves your hair stronger and rejuvenated all the way to the ends.


7. Nutrisse Nourishing Color Crème

And perfect for your back-to-school routine, try Nutrisse Nourishing Color Creme which is infused with ingredients such as avocado, olive, and shea oils.

The coloring instructions are easy to follow from your dorm or apartment and work for both full head application and root touch up.
