Higher Education Skincare Review


I first stumbled upon these products when I was applying to graduate school and those targeted ads got me this time, because this line was too cool not to check out. After I saw these I added them to my Christmas wishlist and my amazing mother came through and got me some products to try out.

Incase you don't feel like reading my in-depth review down below šŸ‘‡šŸ¼ here's a spoiler alert: These products are ~alright✨~. Yes, I mean that whole heartedly. These products are fine, okay, alright but not ground breaking. Maybe they will be for you, but for me they were just fine. Definitely purchased because of the packaging.


So let's dive in shall we.

No Brainer | Gentle Skin Cleanser for Dry and Sensitive Skin

One thing I really enjoyed was that this line had specific items for combination skin, which is what I have. More often than not we see products for dry or oily skin, but rarely for the combination of the two. This face wash again was...fine. It washed my face, I didn't have any breakouts or reactions to it.I definitely felt like I need lotion or serums almost immediately after my face dried though. There's way more product than I thought and it took me almost 3 months before running out of this product. The downside is that it's kind of a sticky material and it smells exactly like fruit roll-ups so it gets a 4/10 for me.

Pre Req | Invigorating Foaming Cleanser for Oily to Combination Skin.

Maybe this is all in my head but when I can physically see something happening as I wash my face then mentally I feel as though something is happening as well. Is that just me? Okay, well this foaming cleanser was pretty cool. It hit all the marks such as good for combination skins, love the foaming affects and there's more product on the inside than it looks, but it was just a face wash. It did nothing special so just like the previous face wash it gets a 4/10. I just wouldn't go out of my way to purchase this product.

Double Major | Moisture Relief Gel

Hands down one of my favorite products from this line. I am super picky with face lotions. Some have caused me to breakout, some of made me feel sticky and others simply just don't moisturize, but this bad boy didn't do any of the following. It wasn't sticky, it definitely moisturized my skin and again..a little goes a long way with this. I thought I would run out of this before the cleansers but I was so wrong. I'm going on 4 months of using this and I still haven't ran out of it yet. It gets a 9/10 for me and will most likely be repurchasing.

Rush | Clear Complexion Wipes with 2% Salicylic Acid for Oily to Combination Skin

I love a good cleansing wipe. I think I prefer these over toner sometimes because I can really get into the creases of face and as someone who battles cystic acne salicylic acid is a staple in my beauty cabinet. These pads were fine, there were 30 total which is a good amount for the price and they stay cool!! I didn't keep these in my mini skincare fridge but every time I used one it was as if I had. These may also be a repurchase because its just a good staple to have, but it didn't do anything special so it gets a 5/10.

Goal Digger | Moisturizing Cucumber Cream for Sensitive Skin

This was the pretties packaging of all of the products and it just looks luxurious because it's glass not plastic like the other packages. I loved seeing this on my counter everyday because I felt so boujee when I used it. I do enjoy these super moisturizing water mask and since I've been working from home I'm able to do these in the morning and night, but again it was just a water mask. Smelt amazing, felt good and didn't cause any reactions to my face, but my Laniege water sleeping mask is a lot easier to get my hands on so I don't know if the Goal Digger is worth going out of my way to purchase so 6/10.

Easy A | Gentle Resurfacing Pads for All Skin Types

Just like the Rush Clear Complexion Wipes there were 30 pads which is great for the price and they stayed cool all the time. Another great staple to have, but I didn't notice anything magical happening to my skin so another 7/10 from me.


Higher Education Skincare Review


Hope you enjoyed this review of the Higher Education Skincare. If I ever repurchase again maybe I'll try a couple different products. Overall this line gets a 6/10 for me, it's affordable, cute as hell, but it's pretty average for someone who truly battles acne and skincare issues. Have you tried it before? What do you think? Comment down below what skincare line you think I should try next šŸ‘‡šŸ¼.

  1. Going to graduate school was a positive decision for me. I enjoyed the coursework, the presentations, the fellow students, and the professors. And since my company reimbursed 100% of the tuition, the only cost that I had to pay on my own was for books and supplies. Otherwise, I received a free master’s degree. All that I had to invest was my time. Oxygeneo
