With the evenings getting longer and lighter, Coachella 2014 just around the corner, and a host of other summer music festivals within reach, it’s time to start planning your festival survival kit.
Sleeping in a tent for three days is no excuse for looking or smelling as bad as the Porta Potties, and with careful consideration, you can put together a capsule grooming kit without taking up valuable beer space in your backpack.
Personal hygiene is a major concern at festivals, and when you’ve paid good money to see your favourite bands playing all weekend, you can’t afford to get sick. With limited access to running water and soap, a hand sanitizing gel is absolutely essential, so make it the very first thing you pack.
With queues as long as the Golden Gate Bridge for showers, the closest you’re likely to get is standing outside your tent and hoping for rain. Pack a spray can of dry shampoo to soak up excess grease and oil, anytime, anywhere.
Packing light is key when it comes to festival grooming, and luckily Dreadnought has released a selection of our products in handy 20ml travel sizes just in time.
For the dedicated among you who will be bringing your shaving equipment along, you can get your hands on our Luxury Shaving Cream, and Post-Shave Balm in these useful miniature tubs – which means more space for the fun things.
You’re going to need some help when it comes to smelling your best and preventing unsightly sweat patches, especially when you’re rocking out to your favorite band as the sun goes down. You never know when you might need to impress, so take our Eco Warrior Deodorant along for the ride. All natural, eco-friendly and laced with our classic scent, this one fits in perfectly with the festival vibe, and will keep you smelling sweet with a completely clear conscience.
Throw in our Cooling Moisturizer – a necessity for combating the dull and dehydrated skin caused by too much sun and a little extra alcohol – and a Dreadnought comb to keep your hair in check, and you’re pretty much good to go.
Just don’t forget the sunglasses.
