5 Essentials To Get You Through Finals Week


It’s here. The week we dread all semester… finals week. The end of the semester is fast approaching and whether you are completely ready to kill it or hiding under your covers from your accounting exam like me these five products will get you through it all!

Body Lotion


One of my favorite skin care products is the Bath and Body Works Stress Relief Lotion from their aromatherapy line. It has eucalyptus and spearmint essential oils that not only help to clear the mind but help to sooth and uplift your mood. This super creamy and natural moisturizer is definitely a must have for my study space.



With late nights of studying during this stressful time come dark circles. Even though I typically wear little to no makeup during finals week, recently I have thrown on a bit of my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer before class to help me look more awake. But, suprisingly enough by doing something to make me look more awake it has actually helped me FEEL more awake. (P.S its on sale for 15% off at Nordstroms!!)



There is nothing I Iove more than lighting my Voluspa candle in the scent Branche Vermeil ESPECIALLY during the holiday season. The second I light it I automatically feel more relaxed and more prepared to take on some studying.

Acne Control Masks


This might be something that you wouldn’t think to see on a finals week essential list, but something that many people don’t know is we release more hormones when we are stressed, causing oil glands to over produce and clog up your pores creating acne! To combat this I have been using the Philosophy Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Mask. I received this as a sample after a Sephora purchase and I have not been able to put it down since!

Headspace App


Last but certainly not least is my most needed finals week essential which is the app HeadSpace. This app is essentially a guided meditation that can be as specific or as general as you would like, and it even has guided meditations for students! This app truly helps me get the most out of my days no matter how crazy school and life makes me!

That’s everything I have for you guys to get through finals week! I hope these essentials work as well for you as they work for me and whether you are still in classes or taking on finals week good luck and KILL IT !!!
