I don’t normally use face wipes but they are a handy must-have when camping – these Yes to Cucumber Facial Towelettes (£4.99 for 30 wipes) are much thicker than the cheap-y baby wipes I would normally use, and feel more luxurious on the skin. The great thing about these wipes are they are an exfoliator, detoxifier and rejuvenator, all in one. They are certified organic and biodegradable (so good for the environment) and gently cleanse and remove makeup and impurities in one quick swipe. The wipes are enriched with Aloe Vera and Green Tea to simultaneously soothe sensitive skin.
They smell of fresh cucumber and are cooling and refreshing and my skin actually felt squeaky clean afterwards. These handy wipes would be great to take on holiday as Aloe Vera is great for calming sunburn. They get a thumbs up from me – I have heard a lot of hype about their sister range ‘Yes to Carrots’ so that is next on my list to test out.....
Connock London Kukui Oil Wonderbalm (£18.50, 10ml) This miracle balm can be used on the lips, body, and over exposed skin to instantly soothe, nourish and protect. A deeply nourishing blend of Kukui oil, Monoi, Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter and Beeswax naturally heals and moisturises for unmistakably soft skin. The silky balm is the perfect size for travelling, fitting into your purse or pocket perfectly. I reviewed the Wonderbalm last winter here and I am still enjoying using it - it lasts forever with it being a solid balm.
Aromatherapy Associates Support Breathe Essence (£15.50, 10ml): Ensure you feel as good as you look with Aromatherapy Associates Support Breathe Essence. A combination of anti-bacterial essential oils: Lavender, Pine, Peppermint, Tree tree, this little bottle of goodness helps to boost your immune system and provide on-the-spot relief for hayfever. Let nature’s most cleansing essential oils support you though your festival weekend. The oil is very powerful and instantly calms you. I would suggest dropping a couple of drops of the essence on a tissue and carry with you for whenever you need a little extra support. Alternatively if using at home you can mix the oil with water and use in an oil burner.
