Are you heading to one of many festivals this summer? If so, you might want to take a look at this list of Festival Essentials we think you’ll need! 

(PS – you will also definitely need a tent, sleeping bag, FOOD & DRINK and CLOTHES – we just don’t sell them LOL)

  

 

1. Moisturiser

 

You definitely want a good moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated and plump - 3 days of living in a tent can take its toll! This is what we recommend:

 

La Roche-Posay Effaclar H Soothing Compensation Moisturiser 40ml

2. Suncream

 

Yep - even if you are going to a Festival in this country you STILL need suncream! Up to 80% of the sun's UV rays can pass through clouds - so you can still get sunburnt even if it's overcast! (Which it usually is in this country, unfortunately) 

Ambre Solaire Sun Protection Lotion SPF 20 200ml

3. BB Cream

 

You might not want to go heavy handed on makeup every day of the festival - and BB Cream is a great quick fix so you can just get up and go!

4. Mascara

 

You need a mascara that will lengthen, thicken and most importantly - STAY ON!

5. Lipstick

 

A pop of colour? Natural nude? Whatever look you decide to go for - a lipstick can transform your face!

6. Facial Wipes

 

Now you gotta start thinking about how you're going to take all of this makeup off after a loooong day of partying... Fear not! Facial Wipes are here to save the day! (They can also double up as a shower in a packet if you haven't showered in a few days..............)

7. A touch of SPARKLE

 

Nowadays, you can't go to a festival WITHOUT seeing someone covered from head to toe in glitter and sparkles. You might as well join the party!
