So, peeps are heading to Glasto, loaded up with tents, wellies and bottles of beer! I was having a think back to the festivals I've been to, and these are my top five festival essentials...

Radox Clean & Moisturise
I am a bit of a hygiene freak, and the thought of festival toilets turn my stomach. If you can't blag your way into VIP, where you can be guaranteed a continuous flow of water to clean yourself with, then hand sanitizer is essential. The Radox Clean & Moisturise hand sanitizer kills 99.9% of bacteria AND contains chamomile & jojoba oil to moisturise palms! It smells lovely to - add it to your raving bag! 

Organic Surge Kiss & Make Up wipes, £  

Although I have to shower at some point during a festival (I know you're supposed to slum it, but I can only go so far, I'm a princess), I'm quite happy to keep clean the rest of the time in other ways. Face wipes are the ideal solution. Organic Surge Kiss & Make Up wipes are fab, as they clean away all the make-up and dirt from your face (and perhaps body too) PLUS they moisturise - perfect for packing light. What's more, these wipes are organic and biodegradable, so if you can't find a bin, throw them outside the tent! 

Nature’s Plus Red
I am rapidly making my way through my twenties, and with this, comes hangovers (the deadly enemy of the festival goer). Nature’s Plus Red Lightning is the perfect pick-me-up after a heavy, tiring, booze filled night. Packed with anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals, these little sachets (mixed with water) taste bloody good, and take the edge of your pounding head to get you ready to face the fields for another day. Bliss. Pack one for every morning (just in case).
Wicked Wedge, £14.95
As well as an airbed (SO worth making the extra room for in your backpack), somewhere comfy to lounge near your tent is an ace idea. Whether it be when you're waiting for you best pal to apply all her make up/face paint OR for when you've come back after a long night partying to share a few night caps with your mates, an inflatable lounger such as the Wicked Wedge, will bring home comfort to the campsite. 

Ear Plugs
The best money you will spend on your festival kit will be on ear plugs... my tent-mate bought them along last year and they really are genius. I totally am not a whiner when it comes to noise usually, but when you get to bed at 5am and have a four-five hour window until the sun will wake you up in your sweaty sleeping bag, you want to sleep as soundly as you can without the 'lads' in your neighbouring tent waking you up at silly o'clock! Sleep soundly my friends, with earplugs Zzzzzzzzzzzzz
