Festival Season Beauty Essentials

Festival-Season-Beauty-Essentials_Cat

 

The season of music festivals is upon us! If you’ve managed to snag tickets and are now in the process of planning your outfits, hair and makeup, our Beauty Advisors have some tips for what to bring – aside from floral crowns, combat boots and crochet crop tops.

 

conair brush

 

The Conair Infiniti Pro Ultimate Brush

Access to electricity may not be widely available during the festival, so having wireless hair tools is key. The wireless battery-operated Conair Infiniti Pro Ultimate Brush tames static and frizzy hair using ion technology, so you can keep fly-aways at bay.

 

 

fekkai

 

The Fekkai Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo

Let’s be honest, access to showers at festivals is a luxury. Use Fekkai’s Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo to skip a wash and give your hair an instant refresh. The dry shampoo will absorb dirt and oil so your hair will look and smell freshly done!

 

 

 

marcelle mascara

 

The Marcelle Waterproofing Mascara Topcoat

With back-to-back concerts and parties, your makeup will be put to the test. To avoid the dreaded melting mascara, swipe Marcelle’s Waterproofing Mascara Topcoat over your favourite regular mascara once dry.

 

 

 

laroche

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur – SPF 24

A lightweight coverage BB cream is the best way to give your face natural looking coverage that won’t get cakey and melt in the sun. La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar BB Blur not only gives light coverage, but it also minimizes excess shine and offers SPF 24 to protect your face from the sun throughout the day.

 

 

 

vichy

 

The Vichy Idéal Soleil XL Sunscreen Cream – SPF 60

Spending all day under the hot sun with little to no shade means you’ll need to re-apply sunscreen every couple hours to stay protected. Vichy’s Idéal Soleil XL Sunscreen Cream has a fast-drying non-sticky texture that can be applied on face and body, offering both UVA and UVB protection.

 

 

e.l.f.

 

The e.l.f. Studio Lip Balm SPF 15

Don’t forget to protect your lips with SPF too.  A tinted lip balm with SPF, like e.l.f.’s Studio Lip Balm will give your lips a flush of natural-looking colour, while also soothing and protecting them from harmful sun rays.

 

 

 

cargo

The Cargo Swimmables Water Resistant Bronzer

You’ll look like a bronzed festival goddess all day long with Cargo’s Swimmables Water Resistant Bronzer. The longwearing formula withstands perspiration, so you can rock a healthy summer glow without having to fuss with re-application throughout the day.

 

 

YB refresh

 

The Youngblood Minerals in the Mist – Refresh

Long days with little sleep and lots of sun mean your skin will likely be begging for a pick-me-up. Give your face a quick spritz of Youngblood’s Minerals in the Mist Refresh to soothe tired skin and give a refreshing boost of moisture to your face.

 

 

 

bioderma wipesThe Bioderma Sensibio H2O Wipes

These makeup wipes from Bioderma are non-rinse: perfect for quickly wiping off makeup & cleansing skin after a long festival day, especially when you don’t have easy access to running water.

4 Eco-Friendly Beauty Brands to Try this Earth Month

April is Earth Month, and while many will celebrate by making the effort to recycle a little more, start to compost, or help clean a park, how about making some sustainable choices when it comes to your makeup routine too? Our Beauty Advisors have chosen the best eco-friendly beauty products and tools from London Drugs that will make you feel good about what you’re putting on your face.

 

Emani Cosmetics

Emani Cosmetics

This eco-conscious line of beauty products is vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, and natural. A healthy choice for you and your skin, the formulas are 100% talc-free, paraben-free, and free of petrochemicals and other irritants. A must-try is Emani’s ‘Perfect 10’ Primer Serum, which is packed with 10 different organic extracts to nourish, moisturize and soften the skin. An added bonus: the packaging is made of recycled and biodegradable paper!

 Eco Tools

Eco Tools

You can eco-fy your makeup brushes too! Eco Tools’ line of makeup brushes are earth-friendly from top to bottom. The handles are made from bamboo, a low impact material that is highly sustainable, and the metal ferrule is created from recycled aluminum. Eco Tools’ synthetic brush bristles are also 100% cruelty free. Even their brush cases are sustainable, made from natural cotton and hemp, or reusable and biodegradable EVA plastic.

 

Burt's Bees

Burt’s Bees

Burt’s Bees has been a long-time favourite of lip balm lovers, but did you know their products are made from 97% natural ingredients? Plus the majority of their packaging is made from recycled content! They’ve also trimmed excess packaging by as much as 50% on some of their packaging. Burt’s Bees has even committed themselves to a policy of sending zero waste to landfills at their plant – a big move to help lighten our carbon footprint. If you haven’t given their brand new 100% natural lipsticks a try yet, Earth Month is the perfect time!

 

Physician's Formula

Physicians Formula Organic Wear

Physicians Formula has created an Organic Wear line, which promises 100% of the total ingredients are from natural origin. All of the products are also free of harsh chemicals, synthetic preservatives, parabens, GMO’s and synthetic colours and fragrances. Each product boasts its own eco-friendly features, from 100% recyclable mascara brushes, to certified organic ingredients (like this bronzer). The Organic Wear line is also 100% cruelty-free!

 

Make the switch to these ‘green’ beauty options, and your skin (and our planet) will thank you!
