Be FESTIVAL ready!

It’s festival season and packing the fun, yet functional essentials can be a challenge. Here are some key products to keep you going throughout the hot, sunny day and big crowds to keep you looking and feeling fresh! 

Freshen up!

No shower? No soap? No problem! When you don’t have access to water during the festival season, pack some wipes with you such as your favourite face and hand wipes. Hand sanitizers and wipes are essential during festival season as this is key to keeping as clean and fresh as possible! For some reason, all antibacterial gel that smells like sweets but Cowshed Cow Pat Natural Antibacterial Hand Gel contains peppermint and orange essential oils and this alcohol-free formula is the key to giving you the freshest feeling to last throughout the whole festival. I’d also recommend packing Femfresh Feminine Freshness Wipes, which will help you to maintain cleanliness and hygiene as well as a healthy pH balance. One pack will last you throughout your busy weekend!


The ULTIMATE tool to pack with you during festival season is a lip balm! This has many functions and not just for hydrating your lips. I’d recommend packing the original go to lip balm Vaseline Lip Therapy Original, to help you keep your lips soft and moisturized. Additionally, it is the perfect product to set your brows in place or to use as an agent to apply facial and body glitter during the festival! Made with triple-purified petroleum jelly, this make-up essential does more magic than you think!

Secret Weapon

Dry shampoo is your festival BBF. It is impossible to survive without a can of Batiste Blush. Simply spritz some dry shampoo into the roots of your hair first thing in the morning, then brush through to leave the hair feeling clean, fresh and full of body. If not dry shampoo, use a bit of Johnson’s Baby Powder and rub that in the roots of your hair. Sprinkle it lightly and this will hide the grease of your hair completely. Also, a great flexible hairspray, like the Pantene Pro-V Stylers Flexible Hold Hairspray will secure your festival hair styles and tame frizz, while keeping your hair soft and touchable. These secret hair productswill see you through till the last band leaves the stage!


Sun protection

 Spending long hours in the heat, your skin is calling for protection. Say goodbye to gloopy creams and leaking sprays, Nivea Sun SPF30 Sun Cream Roll On is the quickest and easiest sun protection to apply to your skin and its compact size makes it perfect for packing. For after sun care, I’d recommend using Herbivore After Sun if you have suffered from sunburn marks. Spritz this aloe vera infused after sun on the affected areas and this will sooth your skin whilst providing you with hydration.


Smell check

It’s going to be a long day and you really don’t want to be the smelly one in the crowd! Or to feel self-conscious about lifting your arms in the air to dance when your favourite band comes on stage! Aesop Deodorant is alcohol and aluminium-free and not only smells great, but the small plastic packaging means no bulky aerosols will be taking up space in your funky festival back-pack.
