Whether you’re jetting off to hit the European festival circuit or wallowing in the mud at an English festival, AA Skincare has a host of festival essentials to keep you smelling sweet, whether you have access to washing facilities – or not.
From cleansing wipes and shampoo bars to face toners and rejuvenating gels, AA Skincare’s range of creams, gels and bodycare products are a delicious mix of 100% pure essential oils and natural ingredients – all in festival-friendly packaging.
We were sent some of their products to try out.
Green Tea & Aloe Vera Soothing Cleansing Wipes – a one-step refresh and make up remover. A quick and effective top-to-toe freshen up. Suitable for all skin types, the natural wipes are PH balanced and alcohol, paraben and artificial fragrance free. RRP £3.30 for 25 wipes.
Really lovely not over-scented wipes but didn’t remove my waterproof mascara. Would still use as a refresher though on hot days.
Vegan-friendly Frankincense & Rose face toner – a rehydrating and balancing face toner with rejuvenating Frankincense and fragrant Damask Rose. Formulated using 100% natural ingredients and perfect to refresh tired, festival skin throughout the day – as well as cleanse skin morning and night. Packed in a 150ml recyclable pump spray dispenser. RRP £7.95.
I’ve never used a toner in a pump spray before and it was actually easier to make sure I didn’t use too much. Would work as a refresher spray too!
Natural shampoo bars – bursting with natural ingredients and 100% pure essential oils, AA Skincare’s range of eight, solid shampoo bars will clean hair without stripping protective oils. Free from parabens, preservatives and artificial fragrances, the bars are easy to use and long lasting – a 50g bar gives you twice as many washes as a 250ml bottle of liquid shampoo. RRP £5.95.
I’ve used shampoo bars before that haven’t lathered very well and been really pointless. This one is by FAR the best I’ve used, it lathered well and my hair smelt great afterwards. Really felt good to use something ‘good’ for my hair!
Lavender Gel – a multipurpose gel with healing Comfrey, uplifting Rose Geranium and moisturising Calundula. Formulated to soothe irritated, inflamed and unhappy skin as well as cuts and bruises. A festival essential as it fits in a handbag or pocket and helps prevent and treat a host of skin problems – also effective as a cooling gel to use all over after a spell in the sun and offers natural relief for the irritation caused by insect bites and stings. Just £6.96 for 50ml.
This would be super handy for summer festivals. I’ve popped the gel into my bag as I’m always getting random bruises. No stings or insect bites yet… smells incredible!
