Hot Weather Saviours

What do you mean it's cold out?  Well, I wrote this during the hot weather we had recently, and these products were a godsend.  A godsend, I tell you.  So, there's no harm in leaving this post as it is, there will be hot weather again ... at some point ...

Dove Natural Touch Deodorant with Dead Sea Minerals

Cool-scented with cucumber (rather strongly scented, if truth be known, but it wears off eventually), this does a sterling job of keeping pits fresh through the day.

Suti Peppermint Water

I keep this in the fridge, and it's wonderful for cooling down a flushed face, and it's great for getting summer-sun oiliness under control too.  A must have for me, as I can't use the current beauty blogger rave Caudalie Beauty Elixir owing to sensitivity issues.  I have a few more products from the range to try (and I'm going for a Suti facial too), so look forward to some more in-depth reviews, but Suti is definitely a brand to look out for in the next few months. Take a look at Suti products here.

Alvarez Gomez Aqua de Colonia Concentrada

A staple of the summer holidays I had in Spain as a youth, this is the Spanish version of ubiquitous 4711.  I find it a little more citrussy then the orange-blossom heavy 4711, and it has a hint of grapefruit too, so it's a little more refreshing, and is perfect for splashing on all over in hot weather.  Try soaking a handkerchief in it and using this to wipe your feet, instant cooling and refeshing - and cleaning! - power.  It's new to the UK, but Carter and Bond have the full range, I'll be picking up the matching deodorant and shower gel (and probably candle too, knowing me) soon.

Optrex Spray for Tired & Uncomfortable Eyes

If you wear contact lenses in hot weather, you'll find them being a bit dryer than usual, (particularly if you're a hay-fever suffer) this is a great spray for a bit of a pick me up in front of the computer.  Easier to use than traditional eye-drops, this new spray is infused with vitamin B5, so it has skincare benefits too.  Best bit?  You won't ruin your eyemakeup.

And finally, on the far right there, is a package of Halo Deodorising Wipes.  I don't know about you, but I can't be bothered carrying a deodorant around with me, so these are really handy for a quick clean up when you're headed out after work or something.

What products do you swear by in the heat?

  1. Just writing up a post about NYR White tea facial mist... Also keep this in the fridge and is ok for my sensitive skin.

  2. The Caudalie Beauty Elixir hype has left me a bit cold, but I like the sound of the Suti peppermint toner, sounds like it could be bliss on the beach!

  3. Well the heat will be back, and doubtless without the sunshine and blue skies and we will be living in hot tupperware for the duration of August, so I welcome a post like this for then I will be 2 months closer to the menopause and will be in dire need. Thankyou xx

  4. I think the same about 4711 so I ended up with a bottle of Byredo,s Sunday Cologne. I now smell like a man. A gentleman in a linen suit sat on a veranda in a leather chair with an old book just about to go on safari. But I would like something lighter....This could be it! Thanks lippy one x

  5. Nice to know I’m not the only one having a ‘whore’s bath’ before I head out after work!


Thanks, I love hearing from you!
