It's almost fall, y'all! The new school year is upon us, and everyone is attending classes. Well, I'm not, cause I've already done my six years of college and graduate school, y'all. *Bats eyelashes in done with school and in major debt.* Today on the blog I am chatting about a wonderful box of goodies I was sent from Her Campus and InfluenceHer Collective. I've been a part of this blogging community since I was a Sophomore in college, can you believe that?! We are talking about so many good products today, so let's get to talking about them.
1. Almay's Goddess Gloss™
I was honestly super surprised by how much I loved this stuff. I am not usually a lip gloss fan, so I didn't think I'd like this much. Honestly, I stan this stuff.
- It's not sticky.
- The consistency of this gloss is amazing.
- You can wear it alone or on top of your fave lip products.
Overall, it's just one of the best gloss products I have ever worn. You need to throw this in your bag this fall! There are eight beautiful shades of Almay Goddess Gloss™, so you will never run out of cute shades to try.

2. Bliss' Lemon & Sage Body Butter
I am a bit of a lotion snob. When I was in college, I always had lotion nearby, so I know the importance of a good lotion/body butter. Body butter needs to smell amazing and leave your skin feeling moisturized, not icky. I have shared this body butter with so many people in my life. Everyone who has used this has commented on how great it smells and how moisturizing it is.
Before getting this box from InfluenceHer Collective, I had never heard of Bliss. Now I want all the Bliss products! Who wants to see a Bliss “first impressions” type post for Bliss on the blog?

3. Garden Of Life's GōL Bars
When you are in college and on the go, it can be hard to stop for essential things like lunch. Even as a freelancer, sometimes I get so caught up in work, and then around midday I realize I've never eaten. These Garden of Life GōL Bars are perfect for those days when you need a quick, healthy pick me up.
The GōL Bars are made with simple ingredients like dates, nuts, and berries. I tried the Chocolate Sea Salt and Maple Sea Salt. I am obsessed with the Maple Sea Salt flavor because it has cashews, pecans, dates, and all kinds of other goodness in it. There are also GōL Bars in chocolate coconut and blueberry flavors.
Also, one more note: these yummy bars are gluten-free! How good is that?!

4. High Sierra's Elly Backpack
Having a good backpack is so important. Ain't nobody got time to schlep books across campus. I love the Elly Backpack from High Sierra, as it fits everything you might need. The Elly backpack even comes with a coordinating pencil pouch so you can keep all your writing utensils or makeup in a precise location.
One of my favorite areas of the backpack is the tech spot where you fit a small laptop or tablet. There is plenty of space in the main compartment for books and a notebook or binder for class. There are also two pockets on either side that are perfect for water bottles or whatever else you may need to add.
Overall, it's such a great little backpack that's perfect whether you are in school or traveling from place to place.

5. HCXO Shop's Sleep Mask
Sleeping in the dorm can be a less than pleasant experience. Sharing a room with a roommate who doesn't know when to turn off the light when you want to go to sleep can be difficult. That's where this awesome AF sleep mask comes in. This mask from the Her Campus shop will help you sleep better every night!
It's the perfect size sleep mask to block out all the haters (aka fluorescent dorm light.) It's also made of silk, so it's soft as butter. You need this mask in your life.

These products have grown to be some of my favorite products for the fall. I cannot wait to delve deeper into these fantastic products over the next few months. The InfluenceHer Collective Fall Essentials box hit it out of the park! It was filled with so many amazing products that I can't wait to get more into.
I hope that you loved this little peek into the box!
