Balmi Festival Hacks and Uses
Did you know…Balmi is so much more than just a lip balm? With its array of uses, this wonder balm can be your festival best friend!
Get ready to find out why as we reel off all the amazing ways that Balmi can help you survive the festival season with these helpful Balmi hacks and uses…
1. As a Lip Balm (...duh)
Okay, we know this one doesn’t really need to be said but honestly, the best use for your Balmi lip balm is… as a lip balm!
Featuring Shea Butter and Jojoba Seed Oil, Balmi lip balms are wonderful at helping to keep your lips soft and supple thanks to the moisturising benefits from these ingredients.
Balmi also comes in an array of delicious flavours from classic Coconut to summery Watermelon and the fan-favourite Roseberry flavour. With 10 lip balms to choose from, you’ll be able to find a Balmi to match your outfit for every day of the Festival!
2. Staying Power for your Festival Glitter
Struggling to get your festival glitter to stick? Dab a generous amount of Balmi on before applying glitter, gently press the glitter into place and voila, you’re good to go!
Whether it’s glitter lips, brows, face or just all-over body glitter, Balmi can help you to stay sparkling through the night.
If you’re planning to go glitter-mad this festival season, then do your bit for the environment, and try to stick with eco-friendly and biodegradable glitters!
3. Glowing Highlight for your Cheekbones
If glitter’s not your thing and you’re wanting to keep things natural, simply dab some Balmi on your cheekbones, brow bones, cupids bow and the bridge of your nose for a natural dewy glow.
By swapping out your highlighter for a Balmi lip balm, you can save space in your festival bag. It also means you can achieve a beautiful dewy glow, without having to worry about accidentally losing or breaking your favourite highlighter in the middle of festival antics. Perfect!
4. Taming Those Brows
We’re convinced our eyebrows have a life of their own… If you’re anything like us, you’ll be wanting to keep your brows tamed over the festival weekend.
Did you know, you can use lip balm instead of brow gel? It’s the perfect way to get no-fuss defined brows. Simply, apply Balmi lip balm to your brows then run a spoolie brush over the top to shape your brows.
Thanks to Balmi’s unique conical shape, it’s super easy to apply this wonder balm to your brows, without having to worry about unsteady hands. The moisturising properties of shea butter and jojoba seed oil means Balmi will set to work conditioning your brows whilst it helps hold the hairs in place!
5. Keeping Your Kicks On
Thinking of rocking your cutest trainers to the festival? You probably don’t want to risk your laces coming loose. This is probably the strangest Balmi hack we know...
Smoothing lip balm onto your laces before you tie the knot can help stop them from coming untied… and nobody wants to be at risk of losing their shoes at a muddy festival! It's a total gamechanger if you're thinking about wearing trainers or lace-up boots.
If you are planning to head to a super muddy festival, it might be best to swap your trainers for wellies or boots and save your favourite trainers for summer days out instead!
6. Protecting Cuticles and Nourishing Hands
Festivals can be hard work on your hands and nails. From carrying all your festival bags to pitching your tent, it's no surprise that festivals really take a toll on your hands.
Instead of taking your hand lotion with you to the festival, you can use Balmi to help quickly moisturise any dry patches. Just swipe Balmi lip balm over any dry areas then rub your hands together to warm the balm and massage it into your skin.
You can also run Balmi over your cuticles to help keep them soft and healthy. The conical shape of Balmi means you can easily and accurately apply this moisturising balm to your cuticles and nail beds in a matter of seconds. It’s a quick and easy beauty hack for the festival weekend!
7. Preventing Dancing Blisters
Festivals are for dancing! So, you’re going to want to make sure are always ready to get up and dance by keeping blisters at bay.
Roll some balmi over your heels and on any at-risk areas on your feet before slipping into your shoes. This will reduce friction to help prevent blisters and irritated skin caused by rubbing. Balmi will help protect your feet, soften skin and reduce the risk of blisters so you can dance all festival long!
8. Taming Fly-Aways
If you’re heading to a festival this summer, chance are you won’t be packing all of your hair styling products. But that doesn’t mean you have to have unruly hair over the festival weekend.
Keep hair looking chic and stylish by taming fly-aways with Balmi lip balm. Braids are our favourite go-to festival hairstyle for an effortlessly chic look. Once your braids are in, smooth Balmi lip balm over the top to tame any wayward fly-aways.
9. Fixing Mascara Smudges
Does anyone else get mascara everywhere when they apply it…or is it just us? If, like us, you’re prone to mascara and eyeliner smudges, Balmi is your best friend!
Use Balmi to easily clean up your eye make-up by carefully wiping Balmi over any make-up smudges then gently wipe off using the corner of a tissue. Just make sure you avoid doing this with the Mint Balmi… we recommend opting for Coconut lip balm for any eye-care tips and tricks!
10. Under-Eye Saviour
All those long days, late nights and crashing out in a tent each night are bound to take a toll on your skin. Knowing that you won’t be able to take all of your skincare essentials to combat the effects of tiredness might leave you feeling worried… but don’t panic! Balmi has got you covered.
Luckily, you can use Balmi to help relieve tired eyes. Just gently use your fingertips to tap Balmi around your eyes to help hydrate the eye area and minimise fine lines! Perfect for mediating the effects tiredness can have on your skin whilst saving space in your festival kit.
Festivals are all about having fun so let Balmi take care of your festival beauty needs whilst you enjoy the festival!
