Festival Beauty Hack
Let’s not beat around the bush: festivals aren’t sanctuaries of sanitary note. In fact, we’d go as far to say questionable hygiene standards are all part and parcel of the outdoor experience, not to mention a face palm-inducing memory for many (you poor souls). But don’t fret, there are little saviours out there, a proverbial light at the end of the ill-equipped tunnel of temporary loos and tent life – face wipes!
As a make-up bag essential, facial wipes make total sense. From cleansing cosmetic-clad hands and removing your make-up, to cleaning-up your Cupid’s bow and perfecting brows – face wipes serve as undisputed heroes. But, have you ever thought of their potential in a festival context? We think you may want to consider grabbing a few of these babies for your next outdoor gig…
Gentle Cleansing Wipes, Deep Cleansing Wipes, Argan Facial Wipes, all €1.50
Gentle Cleansing Wipes
The classic ‘gentle’ wipe is fragrance free and designed for sensitive skin. Unless you’ve had to deal with sensitive skin, it’s impossible to understand the perils that ensue under the drought-worthy conditions festivals pose. Keep your skin clean and protected with Pro-Vitamin B5.
Fun fact: Enriched with Pro-Vitamin B5 to help condition the skin.
Best for: Sensitive skin types.
Top tip for festival use: Great for post-meal clean-up sessions. These fragrance-free wipes will keep sticky fingers and lips clean, without leaving a scent or taste.
Oil Balancing Wipes
Although festival attendees tend to come with a free spirit and laid-back attitude, as standard, that doesn’t mean problem skin will behave as well. Keep oily complexions in check with our oil balancing wipes when limited water supplies restrict proper cleansing routines.
Fun fact: Enriched with tea tree and witch hazel to help fight blemishes and keep skin clear from breakouts.
Best for: Oily and blemish-prone skin.
Top tip for festival use: Get those mitts grease-free after you’ve applied sun care lotions and potions. These oil-balancing wipes will also leave a tingly tea tree scent.
Those headliners know how to hog a stage and keep you dancing WAY past your bedtime. Feel fresh and ready to go in the morning with our super yum cucumber scented wipes.
Fun fact: Cleansing and revitalising, with a fresh scent and cucumber extract.
Best for: Suitable for all skin types.
Top tip for festival use: Banish ‘the morning after the night before’ look with a refreshing zing of cucumber.
Jetting off to festivals in warmer climes? Keep sun-kissed skin supple and moisturised with a dash of Argan oil. A festival abroad AND Argan goodness... You fancy, huh?
Fun fact: Enriched with Argan oil to help replenish skin’s moisture.
Best for: Suitable for all skin types, but perfect for dry skin.
Top tip for festival use: Why stop at your face? Keep those arms and legs clean and Argan-oiled too.
Deep Cleansing Wipes
After a few sun-soaked days of field dancing without the array of cleanse, tone, and moisturise goodies you rely on at home, you’ll need a good scrub. These deep-cleansing wipes will get that face squeaky clean in no time.
Fun fact: Enriched with Antioxidant Vitamin E to help hydrate the skin.
Best for: All skin types.
Top tip for festival use: Did your 'oh-so-practial' (but not really practical) festival footwear choice leave you with shockingly dirty feet? Or worse still, are your shoes looking a little worse for wear? Get those toots and shoes sparkling clean, with a deep cleanse wipe!
So many wipes, so many benefits – why not go for a clean sweep and grab a pack of each? Whichever one suits your skin, all of them will be an invaluable addition to your festival back pack. Love this? Don’t forget to check out our festival beauty checklist too!
