Superdrug Festival Essentials | Grab THESE off the Shelf, Look After your Health*


Summer 2017 is in full swing - and I'm loving it. I live for the summer; the sunny park days, light evenings, beer gardens and of course, festival seasonI'm a summer kinda gal through and through - there's pretty much nothing I hate more than having to wear a coat! Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, snow and having to put the heating on can do one; in my [slightly unpopular as a blogger] opinion. Take me to the beach any day, over a winter wonderland.

One of my favourite things about summer is making fun new memories [in the UK and overseas, though chance would be a fine thing this year #SkintSusan] with friends; and how in years to come, certain songs, smells, tastes and places will remind you of all the great times you shared. Festivals in particular are fantastic places to meet new mates and soak up the atmosphere. There's nothing better than enjoying live music & other festivities; surrounded by the people you love, dancing under a blue sky with flowers in your hair and sunshine nourishing your skin. Bliss

I've chatted with you guys before about festival fashion / staying fresh & fragrant and I've also touched on festival hair a little too - but something really important when it comes to having fun in the sun [regardless of whether you're enjoying festival life at V Fest or just sitting off in the local park catching some rays & watching the local youths set the bins on fire] is considering your summer health needs. 

As much as it is a warm, enjoyable and triumphant dreamboat of a season - and as much as I don't want to badmouth it; Summer does come with a number of associated health risks. Dehydration, sun burn, hayfever, drunken falls, sun stroke, prickly heat and headaches are rife during the warmer months - as well as a steep increase in the amount of STIs doing the rounds [it's a well known fact that the sun makes everyone a bit... randy and festivals are well-renowned for their somewhat spur of the moment sexytimes] thanks to unprotected sex.

Thankfully all these things are preventable - and treatable, so easily [bar treating STIs, but you can totes prevent those by not being silly and wrapping up his willy] if you pack just one or two extra items to take with you.

So when you're packing your on-point, customised festival bumbag this year, why not pop in a few essentials from Superdrug; to keep your health as on-fleek as your outfit? Their selection of festival essentials cover all bases when it comes to summer healthcare; in compact packaging, sporting cute designs and at low prices. Here are a few low-cost examples of items that might help you this summer.

Emoji Plasters in Tin Can, 24 Pieces, £2.99*


We've all been there; everyone's having a great time and then your mate Jade has one bevvy too many and ends up scraping her knee on the floor and getting a bit emosh. Noone knows what to do really, cos you've all had a few Jagers - and apart from makeup wipes, you don't really have anything to patch it up with - it'd be a minor miracle to find loo roll in the festival bogs, like.

These plasters from Superdrug are insanely cute, lightweight and come in a little presentation tin which is simply adorbs. Practical doesn't have to be boring - and who doesn't love an emoji?! Whether you're pushing 30 or 13, these colourful first aid devices will put a smile on your face and patch you up in no time. So Jade can wipe away those sniffles, whap on a plaster and dance the rest of the night away; wearing plaster emojis as she channels her inner dancing-lady-in-red-dress emoji.

Hayfever and other allergies are possibly the spawn of Satan himself. They can be so annoying, so irritating and so inconvenient; and if you have raging hayfever like me, spending hours in a grassy field in the sun is a little like a death wish. These lightweight, effective and super cheap allergy pills from Superdrug are ideal to pop in your travel-bag; and work effectively to keep those annoying allergens / Satan at bay. Superdrug do tons of different hayfever and allergy tablets; so if Loratadine isn't your thang, there's plenty of other options [here.] But I find it works quite well for me.

Again, if hayfever [aka the spawn of Satan] is bothering you, don't let it spoil your festival experience. I find that nasal sprays, such as this one I've been trying, really help alleviate and control symptoms. And although they might look a little daunting - and spraying shiz up your nose might not sound like the most fun pastime on offer - I really recommend picking one up if you're heading off to grassy fields. Especially one this reasonably priced.

If you're heading off to a festival this year - or perhaps just planning to visit somewhere new - don't forget to check out Superdrug; for health products, beauty bits, skincare and haircare to keep you safe [and on fleek] as you party the days away. Practical doesn't have to be boring - and these lightweight, low cost items won't break the bank, take up too much space or weigh your bumbag down ... but they could save the day if your hayfever starts playing up or our girl Jade takes another tumble.

What plans do you have for Summer 2017? Are you heading off anywhere nice - perhaps on holiday or festival wise? What do you need to pick up from Superdrug before you head off?
