Since this yurt adventure was the first time in a few years since I had last been off-grid, it took a while to figure out what essentials to pack. My goal was to bring no more than a single backpack for this 3-day trip. This meant packing light and bringing toiletries that would either play multiple roles, or strategically packing complementary essentials. Here were my glamping must-haves:
Yuni Shower Sheets These YUNI shower sheets are a new-to-me product. The packaging has since been redesigned since their original launch, but the product is still better than ever. The sheets are biodegradable, making them easy to dispose of when in situations like camping, car camping, or glamping. They’re at least double the size of a traditional face towelette or hand wipe, and individually wrapped to optimize for the perfect single-use. They were perfect for staying fresh between long car rides and on nights where the shower stations were overloaded.
Trilipiderm Ultra-Hydrating All-Body Oil Having a single product that doubles as a face and body moisturizer is the best! You can read more about my personal experience trialing this all-body oil in last week’s post.
Badger Anti-Bug Shake & Spray As someone who always gets targeted by mosquitoes, this bug spray is a lifesaver! The Badger anti-bug shake & spray is all natural and smells like delicious citronella (which I realize isn’t for everyone, but I personally love it). With my wishful thinking on day 1 of glamping, I didn’t think there would be any bugs trying to bite my ankles. By day 2, I had accumulated 3 huge bites on my thighs and left calf, and forever grateful to this bug spray from keeping my body bite-free for the rest of the trip.
Earth Science Tea Tree Lavender Deodorant This is one of my favourite all-natural deodorants! The lavender and tea tree oil scents are subtle. The consistency of the tea tree lavender deodorant itself isn’t thick or sticky, and it doesn’t leave deodorant marks on shirts. Although I don’t wear deodorant on a daily basis, I like having this one around for specific trips (like glamping or car camping) because it leaves my underarms feeling fresh.
