Dr Organic Festival Survival Essentials

Summer is now in full swing and by that I mean it’s July, not that its necessarily sunny and hot.  I know many of you will be off on camping trips and attending festivals this summer so I thought I would share with you a couple of essential items from Dr Organic to take with you that I’ve been trying out over the last few weeks.  Both of these products are unisex so they’re great for if you’re going away with your boyfriend then you can both use them.  I’m always looking for unisex products for me and Mr WLL as they save so much space than taking his and hers versions of everything!

Dr Organic Aloe Vera Wet Wipes

The Dr Organic Aloe Vera Wet Wipes are 100% organic and are designed to both soothe and refresh the skin.  They can be used on the body and on the face to cleanse and refresh the skin which will be a godsend if you’ve been in a muddy field watching a gig in the blazing heat all day.  Aloe Vera is also great for if you’re sunburnt as it helps to take the redness and sting out of sunburnt skin.  You could also take these on holiday abroad and keep them in the fridge to use to freshen up after sunbathing.  They come in a handy plastic pouch that you can reseal so that they keep fresh.  The wipes themselves are soft and feel moisturising and they are lightly scented.

Dr Organic Tea Tree Lip Balm

The Dr Organic Tea Tree Lip Balm is a multi action antibacterial product that  is designed to leave your lips hydrated, soothed and protected.  This is an ultra moisturising lip balm that did a fantastic job of keeping my lips moisturised and hydrated for hours and hours.  I tend to use this once at night at the end of my skincare routine and once on a morning after my moisturiser and before applying my make up and it keeps my lips moisturised all day long.  I’ve used many lip balms in the past but none that have kept my lips as soft and moisturised as this one, perhaps that’s due to the shea butter it contains.  I think this would become a holy grail product for those with very dry lips as regular use combined with a little gentle exfoliation would leave their lips in tip top condition.  It also contains SPF 15 which makes it perfect to use when you’re out in the sunshine to protect your lips from burning and blistering.  This product is a must have this summer!

These Dr Organic products and the rest of the range are available from Holland and Barrett both online and in store.  I’m a big fan of their products, particularly their Manuka Honey line.  Check out my other reviews of their Manuka Honey Skin Lotion, Rose Otto Facial Serum, and their Hand and Nail Creams Gift Set.
