Walmart College Bathroom Essentials

For the first time in a few years, I have my own bathroom on-campus. Living in a dorm room can be rough sometimes, and going from having a private bathroom at home to sharing with 40+ girls was a culture shock for me freshman year. This year, I'm the RA in a suite-style building, and RAs were given their own mini suite: a huge room, and an en-suite bathroom, and my little Senior mind couldn't be happier.

So when I was setting up my bathroom, I knew I needed something budget-friendly, so I raided Walmart, naturally. As a college student, I'm always focused on getting the most bang for my buck, so when I needed to pick up a shower curtain, soap, a loofah and other personal necessities, I made sure to be smart about my money. So I'm sharing my bathroom essentials for us college students..

// Dove Nourishing Body Wash (and loofah):
This one goes without saying but soap! I love and use only Dove soaps, and for someone with super sensitive skin, the Dove body wash is the best! Combined with a loofah in a fun color, I just feel cleaner after my shower (plus your skin feels so soft and it's fabulous!).

// Skintimate Shaving Cream: 
Once again, with super sensitive skin, I have to be so sure about what I'm putting on my skin at all times. I swear by this shaving cream because it doesn't irritate my skin, it smells and feels so good and it helps me get the closest shave. (Am I the only one who uses shaving cream solely so I can ensure I haven't missed a spot?! I mean, you SEE the cream shaven off!)

// Schick® Hydro Silk® Disposable Razors: 
I have a love/hate relationship with razors, and when I discovered Shick® Hydro Silk® Disposable Razors, I stopped using my previous brand. It has a water-activated moisturizing serum, and guys, this one actually works. My skin actually feels like silk, and it is hands down the closest shave I have ever gotten in my life, and for a disposable razor, it lasted me pretty long! And they're super budget friendly, and worth every single penny - I haven't used anything else since!

// shampoo and conditioner:
I was super shocked that Walmart carried my favorite brand Organix, so when I found my favorite argan oil and keratin therapy lines, I knew I needed them for the school year! (Also, don't judge me for mixing and matching, I like to use one of each!) I swear by this brand for silky smooth hair and heat protection (for those nights that I inevitably blow dry my hair!).

What are your must-have college bathroom essentials? Did I miss any?

  2. I could literally spend hours picking out stuff for the bathroom to use in the shower, on my hair, etc. I haven't gone to Walmart in forever!!
