Got your Glasto ticket? With Summer well and truly upon us, we’ve got Festival focus; what do I wear? What do I take? Don’t panic girls, we’ve got your back with our top 5 festival essentials.
With lots of festival fairies in the office, we got together and thrashed out the good, the bad and the damn right ugly parts of festival living and finally concluded with the LookFantastic festival favourites. The absolute must have top 5 that you couldn’t live without.
Festival Essential number 1 : Facewipes
We don’t mess around with cleansers, toners and moisturisers; we whip one of these heroes out and bish, bash, bosh, make up, glitter and paint is a distant memory. Priced at £12, Ole Henriksen ‘The Clean Truth Cleansing Cloths’ are a premium face cloth but they’re SO worth it. They smell simply incredible and their thick, luxury texture delve deep into the pores of your skin to deliver a fresh, clean, totally revived feeling. Formulated with vitamin C, green tea and micro algae, they’re ready and waiting to brighten, tighten and firm your skin on the go.
Festival Essential number 2: The magical Tangle Teezer.
This little genius product was put on the planet to please. Hair is inevitably going to knot when being exposed to wind, rain and large crowds, especially as the guy over there just threw his drink and it landed in your locks. The Tangle Teezer is without doubt the answer to all your problems and you won’t believe it until you try it for yourself.
