Festival season is in full gear and here in Chicago we are gearing up for one of the biggest music festivals of the summer season- Lollapalooza (more affectionately known as Lolla). I’m not going to be able to make it this year but I thought I’d put together a list of some festival must-haves so those of you that are going to Lolla (or any other festival) have the best experience possible.
There is nothing more unfashionable (and painful!) than a sunburn so make sure to pack some sunscreen, a floppy hat and your favorite sunglasses to protect you from the hot summer sun.
Oil blotting sheets
One of my favorite products for the summer months, oil blotting sheets will keep your face looking fresh.
Refillable water bottles
It’s essential to drink plenty of water while you are outside all day, especially with this heat wave we’ve been having here in Chicago!
Keep your breath minty fresh with some gum.
Portable phone charger
You’ll want to send snaps and share ‘grams of your favorite moments but won’t be able to do so when your phone dies.
Toilet paper or flushable wipes
Let’s face it… you are going to have to use the bathroom while you are at the festival and port-a-potties are not the cleanest places in the world. And am I the only one that always picks the one that’s out of toilet paper? If you bring your own flushable wipes, like Cottonelle® Flushable Cleansing Cloths with CleanRipple® Texture, or toilet paper you don’t have to worry because you are all set. Cottonelle® with CleanRipple® Texture is a proprietary innovation on all Cottonelle® toilet paper and flushable cleansing cloths that is designed to clean better (than the leading national value brand) so you’re clean & confident enough to go commando if you want to!
It’s always good to have a pain killer on hand in case you have a headache or are in pain from walking so much.
Whether it’s to tie your hair back to get some air on your neck or for another use, I always make sure to have a hair tie with me.
When the sun goes down it can get a little chilly, even during the summer months, so having a light sweater in your bag will come in handy during those times.
Makeup setting spray
To make sure you look just as good after hours in the heat as you did when you first started the day make sure to spray some makeup setting spray on your face. ‘Melted’ is not a good look for anyone ;)
Just like you want to keep your body hydrated you will want to keep your lips hydrated so they don’t crack as you are singing along to your favorite song.
Now that I’ve shared my must-have list I’m wondering, what items are on your list? Guiliana Rancic shares her top must haves (pictured below) and we are giving them away to a lucky winner!
