So you’ve got your ticket, and you are ready for action. Only pack what you need as you may have to carry your festival – ready wardrobe a long distance to where you camp. Don’t forget it all has to go back with you after the weekend!
Sun block: We need to take extra precautions to stay safe in the sun. Exposure to UV radiation is the number one cause of skin cancer, which is the most common cancer in Ireland, so it is imperative to protect and to check your skin. Choose a sunscreen that offers both UVA and UVB protection, with an SPF of 15 or more. Our star buy is P20 once a day application.Hydration and Hangover: Oxylent is a pleasant tasting multivitamin that quickly dissolves in water to provide you with a blend of vital nutrients which will hydrate, rejuvenate you.
Avene Thermal Water Spray: If you feel like you’re getting too much sun, or you need something to perk you up in the morning, this beauty essential will refresh even the most festival fatigued faces with one spray.
Durex Extra Safe Condoms: If you do find someone you want to share your tent with, make sure you stay safe!
Sally Hanson Airbrush Legs: A new favourite among Irish women. Tan in seconds; party for hours.
Batiste Dry Hair Shampoo: A quick and convenient way to get soft, clean and fresh smelling hair from a bottle. Now who doesn’t need that??
A Small First Aid Kit: This can stop a little problem turning into a complete nightmare. Make sure to include plasters, antiseptic cream, throat lozenges, pain relief and a little something for the tummy. Always speak with your LloydsPharmacy pharmacist for advice when purchasing any medicines.
