Roughing it in the woods just doesn’t work for this beauty junkie. A camping trip is a true testament to my must-have, can’t live without products and keeping it minimal is key and the basics are really all you need. Sorry ladies, the Chanel Number Five is better left on the vanity. If a little ‘glamping’ is more your style, then we’ve got you covered.
1. Clinique, Age Defense BB Cream, $37, Sephora
BB Cream is an all around summer essential but works great for a camping trip. Clinique’s Age Defense BB Cream offers sun protection with an SPF of 30 and enough coverage to even out skin tone and banish blemishes.
2. LAVANILA, The Healthy Lip Screen, $16, Sephora
Looking pretty might not be totally necessary when camping, but protecting your skin is. We’re a fan of the LAVANILA brand because of the all natural ingredients. This lip balm contains Shea Butter and peppermint and vanilla oils to keep your lips soft and hydrated while being exposed to those hot summer temperatures.
3. Sephora, Express Cleansing Wipes, $9 , Sephora
If pitching a tent in the woods really is your thing, despite no electricity or access to twitter, blogs and humanity then these will save your life. Makeup wipes are a practical necessity for any female camper to wipe away the SPF grime and refresh throughout the day.
4. Urban Decay, Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara, $20 , Sephora
Mascara is always a must. This waterproof Urban Decay mascara is proven to not budge through water and sweat, so you’re lashes will stay voluminous and picture ready throughout any daily camping activities.
5. Lush, No Drought Dry Shampoo, $13, Lush
Dry Shampoo saves your hair and time, we like this lush one because just a few sprinkles into your scalp can revive your second day hair from looking flat to perfectly voluminous and refreshed. The lemon, grapefruit and lime oils in the powder adds a nice fruity fragrance. Perfect for the adventure seekers that have a low maintenance beauty routine.
