There is so much to remember when getting ready for a festival, and you’ll be sure to forget something.
But have no fear Bounce are here to help you prepare!
Glitter, baby wipes and duct tape don’t normally have much in common, but at a music festival they all become your best friends – especially if you’re camping.
Here’s your ultimate festival essentials checklist, from camping necessities to those extra flourishes that’ll make your momma proud.
The set contains one each of:
Skin Salvation 30ml
Balmonds hero product, a beeswax-based salve with organic hemp seed oil and biodynamic tinctures; because it is oil-based it can be used even on itched, scratched and raw skin without stinging.
Daily Moisturising Cream 100ml
Rich in organic hemp, olive, safflower oils as well as our signature biodynamic Skin Salvation herbal tinctures, this is the perfect moisturising cream for all-over use.
Cooling Cream 100ml
This lovely soft shea butter-based cream with soothing aloe and menthol is ideal for application after exposure to the sun as well as for general cooling of overly-hot skin.
All three products are totally free from parabens, petrochemicals or perfumes, which makes this bundle perfect for dry or sensitive skin. They’re also suitable for people who may be prone to dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and dry, sore, itchy skin conditions

We all know that UVA and UVB sun rays damage skin. What’s not so well-known is a third type of harmful ray called High Energy Visible Light (HEVL). HEVL are basically rays produced by daylight, whether it’s sunny or just light, these harmful rays can damage exposed skin. Although HEVL is a less well-known ray, it’s an important one as it causes as much damage as UVA and UVB combined together. Some sunglasses now protect against it. HEVL is a light non-greasy face cream with a skin-coloured tint. FREE from MI, SLS, parabens and perfumes.
It costs £19.95 for 50ml and is available exclusively from Skin Shop on www.skinshop.co.uk or call: 01794 527433.
Mozzies and biting insects are guaranteed to put a dampener on things when you’re outside, what with their dive-bombing and blood-sucking antics. So whether you’re back-packing through South America, chilling in your back garden or camping out at a festival, make sure you’re armed with Zap-It! A small handheld piezo device, it generates a harmless (no stronger than a gentle pinch) low, electrical impulse when ‘clicked’ against a bite. These ‘zaps’, created by crystals, work to reduce histamine flow and stimulate capillaries into flushing out toxins, thereby stopping the urge to itch and scratch. Zap-It! can be used on up to 1,000 bites (that would be unlucky).
Available in different colours from selected health stores, pharmacies, garden centres and Asda and Superdrug shops nationwide. It is also available online from Amazon or www.ecobrands.co.uk and retails at £5.95.

How to keep your place on the front row of the main stage at Glastonbury

The Lily Cup One reusable menstrual cup, will not only cut down your plastic consumption at the likes of Glastonbury, but will also give you the opportunity to dance the day and night away for up to 12 hours, relieving you of the worry about changing your tampon every four hours while also helping cut down your plastic waste.

The cute and collapsible design fits into even the smallest festival bum bag, meaning you’re never without period protection and one step closer to saving the planet.
