Summer Festival Essentials

Where I’m from in Somerset, we host one of the country’s largest festivals. After 45 years of live music, Glastonbury has changed quite a bit. Since its beginning in 1970, Glastonbury has steadily got bigger and bigger. Starting with 1500, the famous festival now draws in over 170,000 each summer for a celebration of music, art, and culture.

If you have ever been to Glastonbury, you will know it’s not just famous for the live music and hippie fun. It’s also famous for the mud and rain! But despite the conditions you can still look good and have fun! Here are a few products I’m taking with me this year…

Hair Accessories

When you’re jumping up and down to your favorite artist, the last thing you want is your hair getting in your face. Asda has a huge range of beautiful hair accessories. These pretty clips are perfect for keeping your hair in one place and they look fantastic! I remember a few years ago using hair grips to attach flowers into my hair and they looked so effective. You can buy these hair accessories and lots of others, in-store and online at www.asda.com

Beach So Chic Temporary Tattoos

These gold and silver tattoos are growing really popular this year. With many celebs spotted wearing them, I thought they would be perfect for Glastonbury! The non-toxic tattoos can last up to 5 days and there are so many different designs to choose from. They only take 30seconds to apply and you can get as creative and crazy as you like with them. Glam up this festival season and grab yours at www.beachsochic.co.uk

Lush Shampoo Block

All that dancing in hot weather can leave your poor hair quite greasy. Most people who attend festivals bring a tent along and camp over. The chances are you will need to wash your hair more than once while you’re there. These clever shampoo blocks are full of natural goodness including argon oil and rose oil. They will leave your hair looking and feeling fresh and ready for your next round of festival fun. When going to festivals, no one wants to carry around any more than they have to. The solid shampoo blocks are perfect and small enough to fit in your handbag! Grab yours at uk.lush.com

Sure Deodorant

I’m really hoping we get some hot weather for Glastonbury this year, and if we do then you will most definitely be dripping with sweat after dancing around in the heat. people can get quite smelly at these festivals so make sure you’re not one of them with the pocket-size maximum protection deodorant from sure. www.boots.com

Lacura Range

After buying your festival tickets, you can be left a little strapped for cash. Aldi has a fantastic new range of beauty products including spray on moisturiser and Summer glow BB cream! Personally, I have quite expensive taste when it comes to skin care. But when I tried the £1.99 spray on moisturiser I was pleasantly surprised! The cooling spray left my skin feeling smooth and hydrated. I was also quite apprehensive about trying the BB cream.. Many of these types of products I have tried in the past have left my skin with bright orange streaks, but the Lacura one simply left me with a gorgeous summer glow!   www.aldi.co.uk

Zingo Bottle

It’s important to stay hydrated and drink plenty when you’re dancing around in the heat. Every year, many festival goers are treated for dehydration. Zingo makes drinking water easy, fun and healthy.
