University Essentials

These items will help you survive the academic grind.

1_Oil-Control Mattifying Mist

After a long night of studying, wake up and refresh your skin with a few spritzes of a facial spray. The Oil-Control Mattifying Mist will keep your face shine-free while adding some much-needed hydration. Their weightless formula simulates the mattifying effect of blotting paper, without the waste.

Volition Oil-Control Mattifying Mist, $32. Available at sephora.ca

2_Mineral Sunscreen Stick

A complete skincare routine might seem tedious when you’re rushing to the 9 a.m. class that you now regret signing up for. However, it is still vital to protect your skin from harsh UV rays, even as summer ends the sunlight seems to wane. Stick type sunscreens are super handy, with its roll-on application and a lightweight formula means that it absorbs easily without the need to rub it in.

Beautycounter Mineral Sunscreen Stick SPF 30, $26. Available at beautycounter.com

3_Moonstone Hydrating Sleep Mask

Sleep is a precious commodity when you have an ever-building list of exams to study for and assignments to finish. Maximize those few hours with this sleeping mask. Its calming scent helps you relax while hyaluronic acid locks moisture into the skin for a lit-from-within glow. You’ll wake up looking like you actually had the recommended amount of sleep.

Scentbird Moonstone Hydrating Sleep Mask, $26. Available at scentbird.com

4_Liquid Facelift

Michigan-based Dirty Girl Farm has come up with a great anti-ageing alternative to injections or facelifts. Liquid Facelift is a vegan, GMO-free product that uses lupine peptides to help prevent degradation of collagen and elastin. It also contains a vegan hyaluronic acid that provides heaps of moisture. The peptides work below the skin’s surface to repair fibres, and within a week of use, you should see wrinkles and deep lines soften.

Dirty Girl Farm Liquid Facelift, $56. Available at dirtygirlfarm.com

5_Coldbrew Maker

While the stereotype of the sleep-deprived, sleep addicted student might be a little overdone, it does hold some truth. A fresh cup of coffee is greatly welcomed, whether it be early in the morning or late into the night. However, the cost of buying even just one cup a day can add up, and sometimes, you just don’t have the time or patience to wait for a cup to brew. Tackle this issue in advance by brewing a pitcher the night before. Not only is cold brew easy to make, but it also tastes great.

Primula Cold Brew Coffee Maker, $39.99. Available at bedbathandbeyond.ca

6_Jimmy Choo Optical Frames

While contacts are convenient, your eyes will feel like the Sahara Desert after you spend the whole day studying. So, embrace the nerd aesthetic with a pair of glasses. With its vintage design, these silver frames are simple enough to pair with almost any outfit without being too basic.

Jimmy Choo Optical Frames, $455. Available at The Bay and specialty retailers

7_Men’s Coat

As fall approaches and the temperature drops, a soft, warm coat will keep you comfortable both outside and in cold, drafty lecture halls. The large pocket allows you to carry all you need while the removable Sherpa collar keeps you warm as you rock an androgynous version of the lumberjack look so indicative of Canada.

RW&Co. NO NAME, $229.90. Available at rw-co.com

8_ComfyCush Distort Slip-On

Not only does these slip-on Vans pair well with any casual outfit, but the ComfyCush technology also makes them fit so well that it’ll feel like you’re walking on clouds. You’ll want to wear these to every lecture, and with multiple designs, you’ll definitely find a pair that matches your unique style.

Vans ComfyCush Distort Slip-On, $85. Available at vans.ca

9_Salvia Wool Coat

While it would be wonderful if you could wear your comfortable pair of worn-out sweats every day, every university student needs a formal jacket, whether it be for an interview to your dream job or to a networking event where first impressions mean everything. Made from a wool-cashmere blend, these types of long coats have seen a resurgence in popularity within recent years.

Tiger of Sweden Salvia Wool Coat, $779. Available at Tiger of Sweden Toronto and Tiger of Sweden Montreal flagship stores
