University Student Care Package Essentials

I knew this day was coming, but I didn’t think it would get here so quickly. My oldest daughter, Olivia, is leaving for university in a matter of weeks. It’s bittersweet. On the one hand, I’m happy to see her growing up and pursuing her dreams. Alternatively, I’m really going to miss her and worry about her being ok.

I want to make sure she is equipped with everything she’ll need to succeed away from home. I have a little care package of products that will come in handy. Here’s a few of the things I’m sending.

University Student Care Package Essentials - Equip your son or daughter with the tools they'll need to succeed.

Laundry supplies. I want to keep laundry as simple as possible so I’m sending her with the new Arm & Hammer™ Plus OxiClean™ 3-in-1 Power Paks. It tackles tough stains and doesn’t require any measuring or scooping. It’s also budget-friendly which is very important with the amount school costs these days.

Condoms. Safety first. It can be an uncomfortable topic to discuss, but it’s a necessary conversation to have. A recent study found that only 51% of post-secondary students reported using a condom. Eek. Buy a few packages of Trojan™ condoms for just in case and put them in his or her suitcase.

Dry Shampoo. Olivia uses Batiste Dry Shampoo, the world’s #1 dry shampoo, at home so I know she’ll need more for when she is away. It instantly refreshes your hair between washes without using any water. It absorbs excess oil from the roots leaving hair clean and fresh looking. I’ll be sending her with the new Batiste Dry Shampoo Heavenly Volume that also adds extra bounce to your hair.

The day she’s leaving is fast approaching so I’m busy trying to get everything together for her. It’s one less thing I’ll need to worry about when she is away!
