Hot List – Brazilian Bum Bum Cream £18
We’re not sure whether it’s the peachy firm curves of the pot of the delectably scented Brazilian Bum Bum Cream that have got us so excited or if it’s just the name (pronounced Boom Boom- but who’s counting?) that makes it seem so covetable. Whichever it is, we’re head over heels in love with its creamy thick texture, but it’s the pistachio caramel fragrance that sent us running for our credit cards. Not just for your bum bum, we’ve been slathering it on all over.
Hot List- Hoola Lite £24.50
Even those of us whose skin is less “English Rose” and more “Pale Aspirin” can now sport a summer glow with the latest version of the cult bronzer Hoola aimed squarely at those for whom the original was just a bit too dark. This latest iteration is a gentler, paler, cooler version of the original, adding just the lightest touch of honey to pale skins. Mercifully glitter free, its soft matte formula means it also works well for subtle contouring.
Hot List – Pitusa Beach Dress £130
Set your summer holiday wardrobe sizzling with this backless, lightweight, jersey beach dress from Pitusa. Perfect for throwing over a bikini, its delicately beaded, multicoloured straps mean it doubles as evening wear when the nights hot up. Just add sun lotion and sandals and you’ll have summer dressing all sewn up.
Hot List – Compliment Notecard Set £14.95
Spread a little sunshine with these gorgeously upbeat compliments cards from Ban.do. Each colour coordinated card design comes with a matching foil lined envelope, guaranteed to cheer up even the most dreary of British summer days. Scatter them amongst your friends to let them know you care.
Hot List – Nuxe Sun Delicious Fragrant Water £26
Nuxe’s new Sun Delicious Fragrant Water is about as close to bottled sunshine as is possible, so warm and transporting is its fragrance. With notes of vanilla and musk, sweet orange and coconut, it’s the sensorial equivalent of spraying yourself all over with the scents of summer. Even better, it’s been formulated to be non-photosensitising so you can wear it in the sun and it will stay true to its beautiful notes.
