Ultrathon Insect Repellent
Ultrathon, which is endorsed by outdoor survival expert Ray Mears, provides up to 12 hours of protection against biting insects, including midges, mosquitoes and ticks. An essential for when you’re round the camp fire at night, or trudging through the festival fields in the day.
What’s unique about Ultrathon is it uses unique Time Release Technology, which means that although it has a low level of DEET it can provide long lasting protection.
Addicted to Pretty Eyeshadow Palette
This fun, bright eyeshadow palette is perfect for a festival. The extremely pigmented eyeshadows can even double up as face paint when used with a base. All Sugarpill palettes offer bold combinations of richly pigmented, luxury pressed powders in striking hues. The velvety smooth texture allows flawless application and superior blending.
Available from Cocktailcosmetics.co.uk £24.95 for four colours
Cuticura Anti Bacterial Hand Serum
A new revolutionary handbag hero that protects hands from bacteria for a ground-breaking 8 hours – the longest ever protection for hands – and leaves them feeling super soft and smooth as silk. Unlike other hand hygiene products that just kill bacteria, the innovative serum formulation has exclusive Advanced Anti Bacterial Technology that gets rid of 99.99% of bacteria and creates an invisible soft-skin glove that actively prevents reinfection for 8 hours.
The Cuticura Anti Bacterial Hand Serum is part of a brand new collection and offers great value at £2.49 RRP (50ml) and £3.79 RRP (200ml). Available from Boots, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and other leading supermarkets and independent pharmacies
