Post-Festival Beauty Must Haves

If you follow me on twitter you'll know that i went to Reading festival last weekend(amazing!). As much as i love going to festivals, i hate being away from my regular stash of beauty products and not following my usual routine. After using face wipes and dry shampoo for 4 days my skin needs some serious TLC. If you've just got back from a festival or heading of to one soon - here are my top post-festival picks!

Tired Eyes
So you need to catch up on your sleep after a weekend of late nights and dancing. To concealer dark circles and hide tired eyes i recommend the new L'oreal Skin Perfection Eye Cream. It's described as a awakening and correcting cream as it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, dark circles and eye bags. I really like this because it's slightly tinted and illuminating, one of the best eye creams i've tested!
Dry/Chapped Lips
Your lips will probably be looking dry and uncared for. A few nights of wearing a intensive lip balm will get them looking kissable in no time. I've been using the Kiehl's Lip Balm #1. With this a little bit goes along way so use sparingly to avoid greasy lips! It also has a strong coconut scent,Mmmm...
Achy Muscles
After lugging around a tent, sleeping bag and your rug sack it can take a toll on our bodies. The Deep Heat Muscle Rescue Neck and Shoulder Cream* is a life saver! It's a warming cream which helps to relieve muscle tension. The gentle herbal scent is very soothing and the sponge applicator makes it easy to apply. A relaxing bath soak like Deep Heat Muscle Rescue Bath Soak* is perfect to soothe achy muscles. The main ingredients in this is electrolyte minerals which are a combination of atomised sea water, minerals and trace elements such as magnesium, sodium and iron. As well as this the rosemary, patchouli and orange essential oils smell so luxurious creating the perfect spa aroma.
Pesky Spots
My skin didn't react well to a weekend of eating junk food and using face wipes. After double cleansing, try a deep cleansing face mask like Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask. It contains skin loving ingredients such as green clay, manuka honey and geranium which work together to purify and redulate oiliness.
Partied-out Skin
The latest product from the Vichy Idealia range is their new Life Serum; designed for women who want to live a little, it repairs the skins quality if you've been working hard, out late, eating junk food...just enjoying yourself! The serum has a luminous pink tint to it which leaves skin with a natural glow and instantly brightens up your face. You can wear it alone or under your daily moisturiser. I'll be doing a full review of this soon...keep your eyes peeled!


Have you been to any festivals this year? What were your must have beauty products when you got home?
