This post is brought to you in collaboration with Cottonelle, but all opinions of the product are my own.
It’s pretty obvious that I like camping. I mean, I am currently in the middle of a 70 day camping trip with my boys. Many times, we stay places that have no showers or flush toilets, and on occasion, we stay somewhere that has no running water. When you are only on a weekend trip, these things don’t matter too much, but when you are an extended trip, you need some essentials to keep you feeling fresh and clean no matter where you might be camping. These camping essentials for women are all products I take with me on extended trips to help me feel clean, even when my environment is very different.
1. Makeup Remover or Cooling Cloths
Cooling cloths and makeup remover pads are a must have for me on any camping trip. No, I don’t usually wear a lot of makeup when I’m camping. Instead, I use these cloths to cool down and clean up after long hikes or on particularly sweltering days.
2. Tinted Moisturizer with SPF
This is really the only thing in my makeup bag when I go camping during the summer. Tinted moisturizer with SPF can not only help protect your face from sun exposure, but it provides a sheer and light coverage that won’t sweat off easily throughout the day.
Lotion is a necessity, especially when you’re going to an environment you are not used to. For the last two years, we have traveled from our home in Florida where humidity is high, to the West coast, where there is virtually no humidity at all. My skin dries out instantly, and the lotion is the only thing that keeps my skin from getting chapped and irritated.
One thing you need to know about campground restrooms is the toilet paper is more than likely purchased from the hardware store. What I mean, is it is very much like sand paper, and so thin that you can see through it. That is why I like to carry my own toilet paper. Cottonelle Clean Care toilet paper is 2-ply and soft, but strong enough for great coverage.
When you are staying at a campground that doesn’t have showers though, sometimes a little extra coverage and cleaning never hurts. That is where Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths on-the-go packs come in. These packs come in discreet, small and adorably decorated packages that can easily be placed in your bathroom bag. They are flushable, so you don’t have to worry about disposing of them properly, and when paired with the strong and tuggable yet soft cleaning power of Cottonelle Clean Care toilet paper, they provide a clean that you can really feel.
Flushable Cleansing Cloth Travel Packs are a real lifesaver when you are without the comforts of home when camping, and have become a new staple in my camping bathroom bag. Right now, you can even save $1.50 with this Cottonelle Printable Coupon.
