The Freshen up Five

Hello Lovelies!

Tonight I'm taking part in the University of Sheffield 24 Hour Musical which is where you have to rehearse and put on a full blown musical in 24 hours. As much as this is an incredible experience, it also means no sleep or showering for a rather long time so I thought I'd do a little post on the top five products that I love to use to 'freshen up' on the go and which I will no doubt be using liberal amounts of over the next couple of days...

Hair: Batiste Floral & Flirty Blush Dry Shampoo
No hair washing plus jumping around learning dance routines for hours equals unhappy hair, so my number one staple for freshening up has to be this dry shampoo. It gets rid of grease and adds volume, whilst also making your hair smell lovely. It's been a true 'my alarm didn't go off and my hair looks like a birds nest' life saver time and time again so I'd run out and get this now if not sooner. 
Eyes: Boots Sparkling Eye Drops
A very new addition to my freshen up routine, but already one of my favourites. I've had a lot of busy days and long nights lately and my eyes have been struggling to keep up resulting in them looking red and tired. However, after popping one of these drops in each eye (easier said than done when I can't help but blink when the applicator comes near my face) my eyes look so much whiter and brighter, these are like a nap in a bottle!
Face: Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist
My housemate Rosie finds my daily use of face mist so amusing and unnecessary but I can assure you she won't make fun any more after I spray her with this tonight. Not only does this set your make up and give you a nice dewy finish, but it also really refreshes make up that's been on your face for far too long and leaves your skin feeling so soothed and revitalised. It's like washing your face without having to take your make up off, which is something I rather love not having to do.
Body: Fresh Brown Sugar Perfume Roller ball
Of course deodorant and body spray are vital for smelling lovely throughout a long day or night, but I also like to add a bit more girly luxury by rolling this Fresh Brown Sugar perfume onto to my wrists and neck whenever I feel the need for a little pick me up in the scent department. The thin roller ball bottle also makes it so travel friendly and who doesn't enjoy smelling like brown sugar?
Teeth: Extra Ice White Chewing Gum
I do plan on taking my tooth brush tonight and fitting in some teeth cleaning around rehearsals, but for those moments when your mouth feels in the need for freshen and you can't get to a sink chewing gum is an unbeatable solution. The extra ice white is my very favourite type too, as it also whitens your teeth and helps with their general health. Oh and it's also pretty good at keeping the midnight munchies away.

Now I've written this I need to pack all these items up and get myself ready as we're meeting at the Crucible  theatre (If you live in Sheffield then you'll know how exciting it is that we're performing here!) at half 6 to get told the musical we'll be doing, it was Oliver! last time and I actually played Oliver so that came as quite a shock although I did have a suitable pixie haircut at the time hahaa I'm planning on vlogging bits and bobs throughout the 24 hours so look out for that soon and why not come on down to see it tomorrow night if you're nearby (you can get tickets here and it's all for charity), although I can't promise I'll be looking quite as fresh as I do in my audition photo...

Anyway thanks for reading and I hope you all have a lovely day!
Love Meg

This sounds so exciting, good luck :D I hope it all goes well and you get the part you want :) I love love love the vitamin e face spray, I've been using it religiously since you first featured it on here :) I really want to get into using dry shampoo again, I used to use it all the time but went off of it when I had dark hair. I love it for adding volume mostly :)
