I wrote this post for another website but it was never published, (sadface.) Because it contains loads of information on ace products I thought I'd put it up here anyway... enjoy!
Summer is well and truly back on track this week and what better way to celebrate than with the ultimate alternative festival, The Secret Garden Party! Think goblins and fairies, flowers and trees, earth lovers and beer lovers - all mixed together in a big secret pot somewhere in the British countryside. Think inner-beauty and you're half-way there.
You don't need flash products at this fantastic festival, just the basics and a sense of fun. What other ultimate festival-product to take with you than a can of Batiste dry shampoo? If you want something a little out of the ordinary try their new gold and silver shimmer sprays, which not only come out clear so you don't have to live with unsightly white marks all weekend, but they contain teeny pieces of sparkle to give your hair a little something-something. You may even get mistaken for a fairy.
A space-saving essential to take with you is Eyeko 3 in 1 Highlighter and Hydration Eye Cream. This wonder product not only moisturises but acts as an eye cream to reduce the appearance of dark circles after a heavy night. To top it off is contains skin perfecting light reflectors and antioxidant vitamin A for a radiant complexion and subtle glow. Perfect skin in a flash, without having to take a seperate rucksack for your beauty products.
Keeping with the 3 in 1 theme, Avon have just launched a lip wand which triples up as a lip liner, lipstick and lipgloss all in one package. Another space saving wonder product! You can even use the lipstick as a cheek stain and the lip liner as an eyeliner if the need strikes you, and nobody will ever know you're just mixing and matching. Available in six varying shades, from Bronze to Berry, there's something for everyone - and it's cheap as chips.
To everyone that's off to The Secret Garden Party this wekeend, have an amazing time - I'm very jealous as I havent got tickets. I would try to track you down and sneak in, but I havent a clue where it is.
