Electric Picnic Bound? Your Beauty Bag is Here

If your Electric Picnic bound, here's a few beauty treats that will help your glam last as long as you do on and stop you feeling like a crusty for the weekend. Get them now before there's a rush on them the Thursday before it all kicks off.

Essence Road Trip Deo Wipes, €1.59

These deodorized wipes make you feel nice and refreshed in seconds! They're the same size as a pack of tissues and help clean your pits as well deodorise them.


Smashbox Travel Size Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35, €17

You can slap this oil-controlling, skin-perfecting, sun-protecting, all round brilliant BB on in the blurry light of your tent and be rest assured when you step out, your glowing skin will defy any hangover symptoms.

Bumble & Bumble Pret a Powder, €30

Equal parts dry shampoo, style extender and volume in a pinch, just sprinkle this magic dust into roots, massage in (like you would a shampoo) to create instant lift and make yesterday's style ready-to-wear again.

This Works In Trasit No Traces 60 pads, €23


So much more sophisticated than face wipes (most of which BTW, wreak havoc with your skin's PH and typically dry it out), these rosewater and mint infused pads cleanse, brighten and whip off all traces of make-up and mud in a flash.

Soap & Glory Hand Maid Antibacterial Hand Cleansing Gel, €3.50

And finally all that beer-handling, high-fiving and crowd-surfing makes for whole lot of germ breeding. Keep your mitts microbe free with this mositurisng gel, replete with a pink grapefruit scent to leave hands feeling all zingy.
