You weren't voted most likely to make good decisions for nothing!

There's no reason why that shouldn't extend beyond your career and apply to your skincare regimen!

Easy A™ may be the easiest A you've ever received. Our glycolic exfoliating pads are a one-step solution to dull, sallow, and dry skin, producing a glowing, clear and smooth complexion in one quick, pre-soaked swipe of a cotton pad. If you were voted "most likely to succeed," you know a thing or two about MULTI-TASKING... These multi-tasking Easy A pads are packed with Glycolic Acid (an Alpha Hydroxy Acid or AHA found naturally in fruit acids), which sheds dead skin cells and Urea, which fights dryness by promoting water retention in the skin.

These wipes are convenient enough to throw in your purse just in case the party goes until morning!
VOTED: BEST SMILE
Did you have an unforgettable smile your peers always noticed? Soft, moisturized and protected lips are undoubtedly part of your "best smile" award.
It's always important to protect your lips with moisturizing ingredients and SPF, but it's especially important during the change of seasons when skin is most prone to dryness and irritation. We spend a lot of time focusing attention to the skin on our faces and sometimes neglect the skin on our lips, which is just as prone to dryness and accelerated aging as the skin on our face. Heading into fall (and the beginning of a new semester) remember to give a little extra attention to your enviable pout to keep it, and your smile, looking its best.
MOST LIKELY TO USE... MAKE OUT READY™ MOISTURIZING LIP BALM SPF 15
Lip care is skin care, and we take that very seriously around here. Make Out Ready™ Lip Balm is full of conditioning oils that nourish your lips and keep them hydrated. Vitamin E contains strong antioxidant properties to protect the lips from environmental assaults and Sunflower Seed Oil mimics Linoleic Acid, a naturally occurring fatty acid that is essential for maintaining and repairing the delicate skin on your lips. Coconut Oil, the queen of all oils, is naturally derived from the fruit and chosen by our chemists for its incredible moisturizing and healing properties. Surely, this is THE BALM to keep you make-out-ready at any moment, but now you're not isolated to your spot under your High School bleachers ????

MOST LIKELY TO USE... PRE-REQ™ INVIGORATING FOAMING CLEANSER & CRAM SESSION™ VITAMIN INFUSED HYDRATING LOTION
Can we name a more universally dynamic duo than cleansers & moisturizers? A relationship is all about balance, and this combo is just that. Each product brings something important to the table for total Homecoming king and queen vibes.
Pre-Req Invigorating Foaming Cleanser contains Glycolic Acid, a gentle exfoliator derived from sugarcane, that accelerates cell turnover and boosts collagen. It also contains antibacterial Tea Tree Oil, which deeply cleanses the skin, and Glycerin, which attracts moisture to ensure that our deep cleansing doesn't strip skin of essential moisture.
Cram Session Vitamin Infused Hydrating Lotion brings a lot to this relationship; it's packed with vitamins & antioxidants to protect the skin from free radical damage. Vitamin E contains anti-inflammatory properties and fortifies our skin's moisture barrier, protecting the balance of oil and water. Vitamin A is a gentle form of retinol that evens skin tone and diminishes fine lines to delay the aging process. Vitamin C boosts collagen and fights free radicals and is known to have a brightening effect on the skin.
Oh, and just because we're about EXTRA effort in relationships, added Fractionated Melanin protects the skin from the damaging HEV light that emits from all of our devices (think cell, laptop, tv, etc.).
Pre-Req coupled with Cram Session is certain to bring you long-lasting results. Now, how many High School Sweethearts can promise you all of THAT?

MOST LIKELY TO USE...STUDY BUDDY™ CLARIFYING AND BRIGHTENING MASK
Study Buddy mask simultaneously targets two of the biggest skin concerns: clogged pores and dull skin. A blend of Glycolic and Lactic Acids gently penetrate the skin to boost cell turnover while Vitamin C brightens the skin for overall skin tone improvement, while White Kaolin Clay dissolves dirt and impurities while purifying the skin. Delivering both brightening and clarifying results may seem like a powerful one-two punch, but it doesn't stop there! Glycerin is the secret ingredient in this formula, which acts as a hydrating emollient that attracts moisture to the skin's surface. This perfecting mask leaves you with clear, bright and hydrated skin that is soft to the touch... Even after the mask is washed away.
VOTED: MOST CHANGED
When they tell you "you've changed" thank them and recognize it is one of the most complimentary phrases that could be uttered by your peers. You've evolved. You've grown. After all those years of studying and learning you better HOPE you've changed! You've been recognized as someone who has experienced a lot of improvement over time.

No matter where you travel this Spring break, if the sun is shining, you better be packing Spring Break SPF 30.
VOTED: MOST INVOLVED
If you were honored with the title "most involved student on campus," it's no secret that you were one busy bee! If extracurricular activities from ASB and band to coordination of every spirit rally and formal filled your schedule, it's safe to assume that a nighttime skincare routine probably took a backseat to your other priorities in HS. But, it didn't have to!
MOST LIKELY TO USE... CHEAT SHEET™ MAKEUP REMOVER CLEANSING WIPES
Cheat Sheet™ Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes are arguably the most valuable cheat sheet you'll come across during your student career (yes, I took Business Calc and they're THAT good). Whether you're getting home late from a sorority meeting and need to take your makeup off before bed, or you tuck them in your purse for a quick refresh between gym and your next class, these portable, pre-moistened towelettes are your new backpack bff. Toss one in your purse, your gym bag, your nightstand (for those nights you're too lazy to even get out of bed to take off your waterproof mascara) and always be prepared and fresh-faced. They're AMAZING at removing even the most stubborn of makeup, but contain Glycerin, a powerful humectant, to leave skin soft, hydrated and smooth to the touch.
VOTED: MOST LIKELY TO BE LATE FOR CLASS
Were you notorious for stumbling into your 8AM class 5 minutes late on a regular basis? If you were voted "most likely to be late for class," this habit may be one you are still having a hard time breaking. Being a night owl is common for half the population: creative types and partiers alike seem to prefer seizing the night (Carpe Noctum) to seizing the day (Carpe Diem) and that's stellar! You may have found that your late night charades leave behind some telltale signs across your complexion, especially your under-eyes.
MOST LIKELY TO USE... NIGHT OWL™ REVIVING EYE COMPLEX
Whether you're more productive in the early mornings or inspiration strikes you at the wee-hours of the night, you need an under-eye product that can fake 8 hours of sleep with the swipe of product by your delicate ring finger under your eyes in the morning. Night Owl Reviving Eye Complex contains topical Caffeine that has strong anti-inflammatory properties to help de-puff the eye area and encourage circulation to brighten dark circles. Mushroom Extract helps to visibly fade dark circles, while the addition of CoQ10 helps reduce free radical damage and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The candle on this layer cake of amazingness is Boron Nitride, a fancy name for a light scattering diffuser that creates a soft focus around the eye area by refracting light away from the skin to create a soft, lit-from-within glow. A cup of coffee in the morning is OK, but it DEFNITELY can't do all that!
VOTED: BIGGEST OVERACHIEVER
Did you always do the extra credit assignments, go into office hours or were you the first one to raise your hand in class?
