The gentle formulas won’t irritate sensitive skin and are hypoallergenic and alcohol-free.

They’re lightly fragranced and quickly wipe away odor-causing bacteria. They come in a variety of scents to stay fresh throughout all life’s special moments.

Zebra Pen Assortment

It may not be very exciting taking notes in class every day, but you can totally spice it up with Zebra’s Pen Assortment. The pens are Sarasa Gel pens featuring Rapid Dry Ink. Why rapid dry, you ask? No smudging! We are featuring three pens. One is the Z-Grip Plus Ballpoint pen, which features a very smooth low-viscosity ballpoint ink. The second is the H-301 Steel Highlighter, which is part of the Steel line of products. Finally, the third is the F-301 BCA, which is particularly special because the pink barrel on it is aimed at Breast Cancer Awareness. It’s a steel ballpoint pen with black ink.

Going back to college for the first semester of the new year may seem daunting, but you can ease your worries if you have the above products with you on your journey. Good luck!
