Rodial Body Deodorant

Whether you’re spending the weekend at a festival or camping in the Lake District, a weekend in a tent demands a certain level of ruthlessness when it comes to packing.

This week, I’ve put together my five favourite beauty products no happy camper should be without.

1. A posh deodorant.

Just because you’re spending the weekend in a tent doesn’t mean you can’t introduce a little glamour. While there might not be room in your rucksack for your favourite fragrance, a luxurious deodorant is a great compromise. Despite the designer label, Rodial’s Body Deodorant provides unbeatable protection and a gorgeously fruity scent. With extracts of eucalyptus, grapefruit and pomegranate, this refreshing spray will keep you cool and dry, while the paraben and aluminium free formula means it’s suitable for the most sensitive of skins.

Stila’s Sheer Colour Tinted Moisturiser

 2. Tinted moisturiser

An ideal replacement for your foundation – especially for festivals, partly due to the fact that the chances of you removing your make-up after consuming ten pints of cider and god knows what other substances are slim to none. Tinted moisturiser is definitely the lesser of two evils, being infinitely more forgiving to apply when you’re mirrorless, hungover and suffering from severe sleep deprivation. Stila’s Sheer Colour Tinted Moisturiser melts into skin and comes in five shades with the added bonus of SPF 15.

Garnier Clean Detox Cleansing Wipes

3. Wet wipes

When you wake-up to find your one-man tent has become some sort of makeshift sauna, a hungover stumble to the nearest tap to wash your face is hardly appealing. In fact, one whiff of the toilet block will probably be enough to see those ten pints of cider resurfacing. Garnier’s wet wipes effortlessly cleanse your skin with a combination of soothing vitamin E and cooling green mint. With 25 wipes in a resealable pack, they’re the perfect way to treat your skin when water’s in short supply. £4.88, click here to buy it now…

L’Occitane Relaxing Pillow Mist

4. Pillow spray
L’Occitane Relaxing Pillow Mist
Amorous groans from the tent next door or a slowly deflating air bed can all make a night under canvas a less than relaxing experience, and while I’d normally light a scented candle, for obvious reasons I’ve been forced to find an alternative solution. Spritz your pillow or sleeping bag with L’Occitane’s Relaxing Pillow Mist for a great nights’ sleep and awake refreshed and revitalised.  Calming lavender soothes frayed nerves while tea tree oil and lime blossom helps keep skin soft and smooth. £11.75, click here to buy it now…

5.  A do-it-all moisturiser
Trilogy Everything Balm

Whether it’s sore heels, sunburnt cheeks or friction burns from tent nylon, this versatile moisturising balm really does do it all. I love the light, non greasy feel and the potent blend of vitamins and anti-oxidants. Warm a small amount in the palm of your hand then apply as required. The emollient rich formula also means it can be used for massages, so it’s a great way to soothe aching limbs and muscle cramps.
