5 Essential Beauty Products to Take Camping

Summer is around the corner (ignore the weather if it’s still windy at your end), and most people are starting to get in the holiday mood. Well, I know I am. I have started thinking of what to do with the family this summer holiday. We have never been camping as a family, and I have not gone camping in years now, so going camping is on the to-do list.

Because it has been so long, I would have to refresh my memory with a handy camping guide, so I know what to expect. I know for sure, a new large camping tent will be needed, and I know the exact one I think we would need – Urban Escape 4 Man Tunnel Tent by Halfords.

But apart from the tent, I had to look up what else we would be needing for a family with 2 kids under 4. The kids love the outdoors a lot, so I know they will be so excited to go, but once the novelty wears off, they would need to be comfortable so we can all have a good time. I would also need some essential beauty products, or else I would start to miss home too.

 

Here are some essential beauty products to take camping –

Dry Shampoo

A dry shampoo is a necessity when camping. The last thing you would want to deal with when camping is smelly hair, so ensure you take a dry shampoo away with you. They are so easy to use, and very convenient to use, since you don’t have to rinse out.

 

Suncream

Suncream for the entire family is a camping essential. I can’t imagine going camping without an SPF 30 waterproof suncream.

 

Deodorant

A strong deodorant is another camping beauty essential for me. The last thing I would want is to smell funky, so a good deodorant from a tried and trusted brand like Dove, would definitely be in my camping bag.

 

Wipes

Wipes are beauty essentials for camping. I can’t imagine being without them. They are handy for wiping off makeup, cleaning hands and so on.

 

Tinted Lip Balm with SPF

I don’t bother much with makeup when camping, but having a lip balm would be great. A tinted lip balm with SPF would be fab for hydrating the lips, adding a bit of colour and for protecting the lips from the harsh sun rays.

Moissanite vs. Diamonds: Which is Right for Your Ring?

There is a nothing quite like the look and feel of a real diamond. It has long been one of the most cherished stones in human history. Owning a diamond is like a rite of passage for many men and women. It is something to be proud of and enjoyed, forever. There are few other materials that last as long as a diamond will last. But what happens when you want the look and feel of a diamond, but can’t really afford to take on that kind of expense? Comparing Moissanite vs. diamond rings will help you decide if it is worth investing in a real diamond, or choose the more economical Moissanite.

The Look

At first glance, you may not be able to tell the difference between a Moissanite stone and a real diamond. Once you know what to look for, it can be quite easy to spot the difference. But if the look of diamonds is more important than having actual diamonds, the Moissanite might be for you. Moissanite appears to have a much shinier sparkle to it; sometimes it can appear exaggerated in certain lights, especially if the stones are quite large. If you are opting for a Moissanite stone instead of a diamond, consider using a smaller amount in your ring so the difference is less noticeable.

 

The Strength

While diamonds are the hardest materials used in creating jewelry, their rarity and composition make them much more expensive than the trending Moissanite. Because Moissanite is a manufactured material, the cost of the gemstone is much less than a real diamond. In considering the everyday wearability of a diamond and Moissanite, they are quite close in durability. There’s only a .75 measurable difference on the Mohs Scale of Hardness (which is used to determine strength in gemstones and diamonds). So Moissanite is a close second to diamonds.

The Cost

Obviously, a diamond-look-a-like is going to cost much less than a real diamond, however, Moissanite is not just a look-a-like. Real Moissanite is also quite rare and can be just as expensive as real diamonds. Thankfully manufactured Moissanite is about 30% less than real diamonds. That is a significant savings when it comes time to purchase your engagement and wedding jewellery. Consider using a smaller sized Moissanite gemstone to reduce the visible differences between the look-a-like and the real thing. Only you will know for sure.

Perhaps you want to save money on diamonds to be able to pay for a custom ring instead: you can get the look of the diamond ring you are dreaming of without the cost associated with a real diamond. Comparing the differences between Moissanite and diamonds is important if you are considering an alternative ring design.
