If you are heading to any festivals this Summer and not in the VIP backstage area, it’s going to get messy. These little gems, that i’m loving at the moment, will make life a bit easier for you…

Carex Strawberry Laces Hand Gel, £1.80, Superdrug

This antibacterial gel kills 99% of germs and leaves your hands smelling of sweets rather than chemicals.


ELF HD Blush, £4.50, Eyeslipsface.co.uk

This soft-focus liquid blusher comes in a handy mess-free pump bottle and naturally highlights your cheekbones too. A little goes a very long way with this stuff, and it really stains your skin; so apply a tiny amount and blend quickly for a gorgeous Summer flush.

Maybelline Superstay 7 Day Gel Topcoat in Crystal Clear, £4.49, Superdrug

If you want your nails to last through your weekend in the mud, this beauty will be your saviour. It adds an extra glossy shine to your polish, and will buy you an extra few days chip-free wear. It has been lasting 4-5 days on me; which is much better than my normal 2 days.


Bourjois 1 Second Mascara Seduction, £9.99, Boots

I find this very long-lasting. The unique brush has little balls amongst its bristles to coat your lashes from all angles and to define each lash individually. I don’t get clumps, and get great volume.

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream, £22.10, Feel Unique

This famous wonder cream moisturises dry skin and has anti-inflamatory properties. There’s not much it can’t help. Chapped lips- check. Sunburn- check. Cuts- check.

Simple Perfecting BB Cream, £8.99, Boots

You’ll want your skin to look healthy; but not caked in foundation. This light BB cream will add some light colour and smooth out your complexion. It’s lovely and moisturising too.

Hawaiian Tropic Satin Sun Protection SPF 30, £12.29 Feel Unique

Sun protection is essential, and this lotion is light on your skin and not at all greasy. It has the most delicious coconut scent too, and contains vitamins A & E to moisturise.

Simple Kind To Skin Moisture Boost Hydro Mist, £5.99, Superdrug

This nifty little spray will refresh you in an instant and give your skin a burst of hydration. It can be used over make-up too.

Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes, £2.99, Superdrug

Now, I know it’s not great to cleanse your skin with just wipes; but needs must, and as wipes go, these are the kindest to your skin. They are non-scented, and great for general emergency cleaning around the campsite too.
