6 Products you need to take to Rocking the Daisies

Wednesday, 30 September 2015


Music festivals are loads of fun, but they’re notorious for leaving you dirty, sweaty and not looking your best. Here’s our list of beauty must-haves for the upcoming Rocking the Daisies festival:

Dry shampoo – because you probably won’t be able to wash your hair. A few sprays will leave your locks looking and (and smelling) squeaky clean. Try one from the Batiste Dry Shampoo range.

Facial wipes – great for removing your make-up, face wipes are also handy for cleaning your hands when you’re nowhere near a bathroom, as well as cleaning up spills. We love the Johnson’s Hydration Essentials Wipes.

SPF – a daily essential, you’ll need your SPF even more if you’re spending hours in the great outdoors. Pack a broad spectrum sunscreen like the Bioderma Photoderm Max SPF50+ Dry Touch.

Lip balm – dry lips are uncomfortable and will crack if over-exposed to the sun, so be sure to moisturise with a good lip balm like the Eucerin Intensive Lip Balm.

BB cream – if you want a bit of cover but you’re not keen to apply foundation every morning, opt for a lightweight BB cream or tinted moisturiser over your SPF. We love the Chanel Les Beiges All-In-One Healthy Glow Cream SPF 30.

After sun – if you apply your SPF regularly you shouldn’t have to worry about sunburn, but even the most vigilant of us forget to re-apply every now and again. Take a soothing after sun like Australian Gold Soothing Aloe After Sun Gel and apply it all over your exposed areas, even if you haven’t burnt (it’s great for re-energizing tired skin too).
